What is a Visa?

A visa is a document issued by a U.S. Embassy or Consulate. A visa entitles the holder to travel to the United States and apply for admission; it does not guarantee entry. An immigration inspector at the port of entry determines the visa holder's eligibility for admission into the United States.

  • Non-immigrant visas are required by anyone seeking temporary admission into the United States for tourism, business, education, medical treatment, or petition-based employment. The type of visa required depends on your purpose of travel.
  • Immigrant visas are for applicants planning to permanently live in the United States.
