New Bern Tourist Visa Attorneys

Experience America with a Tourist Visa

USCIS offers visas to foreign citizens who wish to enter the U.S. temporarily for business or pleasure. Visitor visas are nonimmigrant visas and the length of time you can stay in the country with one depends on individual circumstances. You may petition for either a tourist visa or a business visa.

The E.A. Wood Law Firm has extensive experience helping people around the world submit petitions for business and tourist visas. Though visitor visas are relatively easy to get, the application process is still long and complex. It is always beneficial to have a skilled immigration attorney working with you.

Give us a call at (800) 611-0821 to learn more about visitor visas.

B-2 Tourist Visa

A tourist visa is a type of visitor visa called the B-2 visa. It is recommended that you apply early for these visas, as wait times tend to vary.

You may obtain a B-2 visa for:

  • Tourism
  • Vacation
  • Visiting friends or relatives
  • Medical treatment
  • Participation in social events
  • Participation in musical, sports, or other events (if you are not being paid to participate)
  • Participation in a short course of study (not for credit towards a degree)

Our tourist visa attorneys in New Bern can help you complete the necessary paperwork and submit all required documentation to petition for a visitor visa. We can also assist you with appealing a tourist visa denial if need be.

Visiting for Business

If you need to visit the U.S. to conduct business briefly, you may instead use the B-1 visa, which is intended specifically for business purposes.

On a B-1, you can:

  • Consult with business partners and associates
  • Attend a professional convention or conference
  • Settle an estate
  • Negotiate a contract
