B-1 Visa: Business Visa for Temporary Visitors to the U.S.
Are you visiting the U.S. for a temporary stay to conduct business? The B-1 Visa may be useful to you if you have business in the U.S. and will be staying in the country for no longer than six months.
If you are participating in a professional, commercial, or educational prospect, you may qualify for this particular type of visa. The conditions of the B-1 Visa application entail that you will be engaging in a business-related activity and will not receive payment for it.
Do I Qualify for B-1 Visa?
If you will be participating in activities that serve to build up your business in your home country, then the B-1 Visa allows you to remain in the U.S. to take advantage of the opportunities for professional enrichment. B-1 Visa applicants may need to do business in the U.S. for numerous reasons.
These might include the following:
- Conferences, consultations, and meetings
- Travel for scientific, education, business, or professional reasons
- Settling business disputes
- Negotiating contracts
- Training or hiring new employees
- Traveling through or in transit through the U.S.
These are eligibility requirements to apply for a B-1 Visa:
- Demonstrate that your business trip is for a legitimate business venture
- You plan on staying in the U.S. for a very short period of time
- You have all of the necessary funds to cover the expenses of your trip
- You have no intentions of leaving your home country permanently
- You have no other reasons that would prevent you from being admitted to the U.S.
