Types of Visitor & Tourist Visas
When planning a visit to the United States, it is essential to determine the appropriate visa category based on your purpose of travel.
Below are the main types of visas in the visitor and tourist categories:
- B-1 Business Visitor Visa: This visa is suitable for individuals traveling to the U.S. for business purposes, such as attending conferences, negotiating contracts, or participating in meetings or seminars.
- B-2 Tourist Visa: If your primary purpose of travel is tourism, including sightseeing, visiting friends or relatives, or undergoing medical treatment, the B-2 tourist visa is the most appropriate choice.
- Visa Waiver Program (VWP): Citizens of certain countries may be eligible to enter the United States without a visa under the VWP. However, travelers under the VWP must obtain an Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) before their trip.
Tourist Visas Vs. Visitor Visas
The terms "tourist visa" and "visitor visa" are often used interchangeably, but there is a subtle difference between the two. As mentioned earlier, the B-2 tourist visa is specifically designed for individuals traveling to the U.S. for tourism purposes. On the other hand, the visitor visa (B-1) encompasses a broader range of activities beyond tourism, including business-related visits, attending conferences, settling an estate, or engaging in contractual negotiations.
