Non-Immigrant Visas


Non-Immigrant Visas

As a foreign national traveling to the US, you should carry a passport issued by your home country, and an entry visa stamped on the passport. A non-immigrant visa shows that you have been allowed legally to stay in the US temporarily. However, which type of non-immigrant visa to apply for can be difficult especially if you're traveling to the US for the first time. This is where we come into the picture.

If you want to increase your chances of coming to the US temporarily, get in touch with us. Our experienced immigration lawyers can help you with non-immigrant visas of all classifications.  A US non-immigrant visa allows foreigners who have no intention of immigration to enter the US for a limited time period for work purposes, travel, education, or for any other special need. And we can make sure that you apply for the right type of non-immigrant visa and obtain it successfully.
