About Business Visas

Business Visas (B1) are granted to foreign nationals visiting the United States temporarily for business purposes. This type of visa is generally requested by people traveling to the United States to attend training, a business meeting, or conference. The requirements include showing that the individual has a permanent residence in their home country, which they have no intention of abandoning. Gardiner Immigration helps people obtain approval for B1 visas.

How Do I Apply for a Business Visa?

This type of visa is granted temporarily for business-related visits to the United States but does not permit the person to work in the country. The applicant must be a citizen of a foreign country and plan to return to their home country when they have concluded their business. The visitor must no receive a salary from the entity or organization they are visiting and must continue to be paid by a foreign employer.

When applying for this visa, you will need the following documents:

  • Documents from the institution hosting the training or conference with details about the location and dates
  • Letter from your employer with information about the employer’s business activities, that the applicant is an employee, and the nature of the visit
  • Documents of any communication between the applicant and party the applicant is visiting
  • Confirmation of lodging for the visit

Each situation is unique, so it is a good idea to seek advice from a Plantation immigration lawyer for business visas. At Gardiner Immigration, P.A., we offer personal service for your specific situation and guidance for the paperwork that will be required for your visa to be approved.
