   There are different types of visas granted to visitors of the United States. Learn about their
differences, and how to apply for one.

 The United States is a beautiful country and is among the favorite tourist destinations of many tourists
around the world. In addition, the United States is one of the most successful countries in terms of
economical growth which have attracted people from other nations to reside or work in this country for
better living conditions, and to receive a higher salary.

 Millions of people from other countries visit the United States every year for different reasons. They
travel to the country as tourists to visit their friends and relatives. Some travel for other reasons such
as attending a seminar, conferences, training, medical needs, exchange programs, temporary worker,
business meetings or decided to reside in the US.

 As a matter of government policy, any foreigner entering into other countries must first secure a visa..
So it is important that you have knowledge on what kind of visa you need to apply for, which depends
on the purpose of your trip.

 Every year many people from different countries apply for US visas such as visitor visa, work visa and
immigration visa. Application for visa includes securing an application form and attending a series of
interviews. The US Embassy in the respective countries of the visitor will do necessary counter
checking of all data provided through an interagency database. All submitted documents will be verified
by the concerned agencies.

 Just recently, the United States government has updated the policies in visa applications in order to
provide better security for visitors and the American citizens. The evaluation and screening process are
stricter in this time of economic recession. Visa application procedures have improved a lot with the
implementation of an automated system for faster processing.

US visas are categorized into two; the immigrant visa and the non-immigrant visa.

The immigrant visa is sought by foreigners who have long term plans of permanently residing or
working in the United States. However, the applicant should be sponsored by an employer or a relative

who is a US citizen before being eligible for an immigrant visa.

 This also requires that the petitioner should fill up the Affidavit of Support form which will indicate his
financial capability to support the immigrant during his stay in the country. Normally, the process of
applying for an immigrant visa can take up as long as two to three years to complete.

 With respect to this application, the US government implements an immigration visa lottery in which
lucky winners can have the opportunity to be given special privileges in shortening the application
process to about two or three months only.

 The non-immigrant visas can be applied for a foreigner who intends to stay in the United States for a
short period of time. This is a visa that allows a person to stay in the country on a temporary basis.

 Non-immigrant visas are commonly applied by tourists, performers, government officials, journalists,
trainees, students and temporary workers. It can also be used for other purposes such as for medical
treatment and business meetings. For temporary worker visa it is necessary that the petition be first
approved by the US immigration including the Naturalization Service before proceeding with the
application.

 When you have plans in visiting the United States for whatever purpose, it is important to process
ahead of time and to comply with all the necessary requirements. This will significantly avoid any
delays on your travel. It is important to gather more details to the nearest US Embassy in your country
to know the policies concerning your travel.

                                 A Simple Primer For Immigration To The United States

 In the last several years, the United State's immigration policies have become topics of much debate.
Regardless of your personal opinion on the matter, there are certain truths that we must consider. U.S.
Immigration policies and regulation have become more stringent for those who are seeking to visit,
work or immigrate in the United States. Below, you will find some important yet basic tips for
understanding and hence limiting immigration pitfalls.

There are two ways by which an individual may legally enter the United States; a non immigrant visa,
which is for the purpose of a temporary stay, or an immigrant visa which is used to enter the United
States permanently.

A visa is a permission given by the U.S. Government for a person to enter the United States. Visas are
granted to those who are visiting the U.S. on the grounds of the purpose of the visit. The length of stay
permitted will be dependent on the purpose of the beneficiary's activities in the U.S. Visas will also
restrict the beneficiary's actions while visiting the United States, such as prohibiting employment or
education.

There are several ways to obtain an immigrant visa, these include but are not limited to: family
petitions, employment based visas, and the visa diversity lottery program. There are few exceptions
such as those granted refugee status and the beneficiaries of a derivative asylee status. For those who
qualify and have the financial means to do so an investment opportunity in the United States may lead
to temporary or legal permanent residency.

Under the non immigrant visa track, the applicant receives a visa for a certain amount of time. If the
visa is based for work or school it will be given for the amount of time needed to complete such
objective. The visa has an expiration date that can be extended if circumstances change. The provision
of a visa does not guarantee that the holder will be allowed to enter the United States at a given time.
Certain visas based on employment and education may require an annual renewal and do not extend
till the completion of the objective.

Under the immigrant visa track, the beneficiary will be granted a visa to enter the United States and
that will allow them to stay until they are able to complete the process for Lawful Permanent
Residence. While most immigrant visas go to family members, there are a significant amount of
immigrant visas that are allowed to those entering through employment and investment visas.

Once an individual has been a legal permanent residence for over five years, they may apply to
naturalize and become a United States Citizen. This process has many requirements which include a
showing of good moral character.

United States immigration policies and regulations are often lengthy and complicated, the application
process is expensive and errors are often irreparable. For this reason it is best to seek the advice and
assistance of an attorney prior to applying for immigration benefits.
