Business visas are necessary for travel to the United States if you wish to stay for an extended period of time. There are several types of visas, each with their own purpose. It can be hard to even know where to start with your application process.
Given the complexity and the time required to prepare these documents, you want to be certain you have chosen the correct visa classification in a timely manner. Our attorneys at Palacios Law Group can help you ensure that you have applied for the right visa correctly.
What Types Of Visas Might Apply To You
There are several types of visas that you can get, and it all depends on the nature of your visit to the country. Some of the more common visas include:
- Immigrant work visas (EB1, EB2, EB3, EB4)– These visas are for those who are coming to this country to work
- Investor visas (E2, EB5)– for those who are coming to this country to invest a large amount of funds in one of the businesses in this country
- Marriage/family visas (K1, K2, K3, K4)– for anyone coming here to join their family, or marry their native spouse
- Student and visitor visas (F1, M1, J1)– these types of visas are commonly used by students, teachers, or researchers
Like most government processes, processing times for your application can vary. Additionally, you must schedule an interview as part of this process. With so much work between submitting you application, and actually receiving it, you should apply as soon as possible.
For business travel, the State Department urges you to apply no less 60 days prior to travel. It also notes that you should never purchase tickets for air travel until you have received your visa.
Immigration laws are complex and volatile. Our attorneys work extensively with many clients needing immigration assistance. We can examine your circumstances and advise on the proper visa applications, accounting for any special requirements and ensuring that your application materials are complete and correct.
