B2 Visa Details
Nonimmigrants who wish to visit the US for pleasure must obtain a B2 visa to enter the United States. Generally these visas are valid for five to ten years. However, the visa holder is only allowed to remain in the US while his or her I-94 card is valid. B2 holders should return to their home country or apply for a visa extension before their I-94 card expires. Failure to extend the visa or return home can result in the current visa being revoked and future visa applications being denied.
For whom is a B2 Visa appropriate?
An individual traveling to the United States for pleasure.
What are the requirements for obtaining an B2 Visa?
Any B2 visitor for business may be admitted for not more than one year (in total) and may be granted extensions of temporary stay in increments of not more than six months each.
