USA Visa Information Center

USA Immigration law states that you must obtain a visa / permit to enter America. A visa is an official 'permit' authorizing you to enter the USA, for a specific reason and for a specified period of time. There are many different types of visas / permits and depending on the nature of your visit to the USA (e.g. travel, study, work), this will decide which is the most appropriate visa / permit for you. There are two USA Visa / permit classifications:- "Immigrant" visa and "NonImmigrant" visa:

The most common USA Visa is a "Nonimmigrant" Visa - this is for someone who intends to come to the USA "temporarily" and for a specific purpose. Typically on an H1B Work Visa, F1 Study Visa, L1 Intra-Company Transfer Visa, K and V Fiancee Visas.

An "Immigrant" Visa is for someone who intends to relocate to the USA, to live and work "permanently" (Green Card - Lawful Permanent Residents).
