K-1 Visas

K-1 visas are a type of non-immigrant visa that allows a foreign-citizen fiancé of a U.S. citizen to enter the country. The visa holder must marry the citizen within 90 days of entry into the United States, after which the couple can seek permanent residency status.

Work Visas

Work visas are issued to foreign citizens who wish to work in the United States. There are several different types of work visas, such as H-1B, L-1, O-1, and TN visas, each with specific requirements and eligibility criteria.

Business Visas

Business visas are offered to foreign citizens who wish to conduct business in the United States. These visas are typically valid for a shorter period of time than work visas and may be renewed. The B-1 and B-2 business visas are the most common types of business visas.
