Immigrant Visas

Foreign nationals who plan on immigrating to the United States on a permanent basis must apply for an immigrant visa. Applicants must first complete the process for permanent residency through either employment-based immigration or family immigration.

In some cases, refugees, asylum seekers and other certain foreign citizens may also be able to obtain immigrant visas. These visas allow foreign citizens to enter a U.S. port of entry, where they can receive their permanent resident status.

Nonimmigrant Visas

All foreign citizens who want to visit the United States on a temporary basis must apply for a nonimmigrant visa. Temporary nonimmigrant visas may be granted for a variety of reasons and usually include information about the purpose of a person's visit and the duration of their stay in the United States.

Some of the most common types of nonimmigrant visas include:

  • Student visas
  • Tourist visas
  • Temporary worker visas
  • Investor visas
