U.S. VISAS

There are dozens of U.S. visa types. Learn more about them and find out which one best suits the purpose of your trip

WHAT AND HOW ARE U.S. VISAS CLASSIFIED?

Like any other sovereign nation, the United States has immigration and customs laws for the entry of foreigners into the country. Depending on the laws of reciprocity between the U.S. and the country of origin of those who want to enter America, there will be more or less restrictions or requirements for issuing visas.

The issuance of U.S. visas is always done outside the U.S., at a U.S. Embassy or Consulate. Consular officers (including consuls and vice consuls) are the U.S. authority responsible for the approval or denial of U.S. visas, whose applications are assessed in accordance with U.S. immigration law guidelines.

The entity that regulates all U.S. visa matters is the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Within DHS there are 23 U.S. subordinate agencies, including the Immigration and Naturalization Service (USCIS) and the Customs and Border Protection Service (CBP). The full list of agencies and other DHS-related information can be checked here.

In general, U.S. visas are divided into two categories: green card visas and non-immigrant (temporary) visas.  The purpose of your trip is what will determine which type of visa is best suited. As a visa applicant, it is up to you to prove you meet all the necessary requirements for the visa category you want to apply. Applicants eligible through an immigrant visa are entitled to obtain a green card to become legal permanent residents.
