Visas for Temporary Visitors (B-1/B-2 Visas)
A temporary visitor may be a tourist visiting for pleasure (B-2 category) or someone whose temporary visit is for business-related purposes (B-1 category). Nevertheless, the B visa is often overlooked as a useful visa particularly for the international business person.
The B visa category is appropriate for a foreign person with a residence in a foreign country, who has no intention of abandoning the foreign residence and wishes to visit the U.S. temporarily for business or for pleasure. Perhaps the most important limitation this category presents is that one cannot seek gainful employment or draw direct income in the form of a salary or remuneration other than an expense allowance or other reimbursement incidental to the temporary stay. Also, a B-1/B-2 visa holder is generally allowed to stay in the U.S. for a maximum of 6 month swith the possibility of extending the stay for up to an additional 6 month period.
