Nonimmigrant B2 Temporary Tourist or Visitor Visa :
US B-2 or USA Visitor Visa has been designed as a non-immigrant tourist visa to facilitate entry of foreign visitors arriving in the country temporarily for purposes sufficing in leisure and pleasure, tourism, visiting their children, families, and friends, attending special events, functions, ceremonies or receiving medical treatment in the US. Other categories that may qualify for this entry permit include
-> Amateur athletes and Entertainers
The amateur athletes and entertainers of some nonprofessional groups and troupes traveling to the country to perform in some charity events, functions and to contest but not receiving any remuneration for such activities can obtain a B-2 visa
-> People traveling for a short course of study
Although the primary objective of traveling to the US is tourism, during the stay the visitors are likely to partake in a course of study for less than 18 hours per week.
B-2 visas can be granted for a tenure ranging between one to ten years. This visa is also popularly known as multiple entry visas and during the overall validity period, the visitors are allowed to make a trip to the US without contacting US consulates. The period of stay is, however, decided by the immigration authority (Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) officer) at the port of entry. As per the current statutes, the duration of a stay during a single visit cannot exceed 6 months though in certain cases where the visitors can duly justify the reasons for the extension as being genuine can get an additional extension of 6 months, the overall stay in the country on a single trip cannot exceed one year from the date of arrival in the US on B-2 visa. The B-2 visa holder must leave the shores of the country on or before the last date of exiting the USA (mentioned on I-94).
The people intending to obtain US B-2 tourist visa must be able to substantiate certain essential facts like
-> Evidencing their intent of travel being purely for temporary objectives, like for pleasure or for medical purpose, and in no way would the applicants involve themselves in paid employment or study
-> Substantiate their intent to travel back to their country of origin or country of current residence after the accomplishment of their travel objectives, or expiry of stay period whichever earlier.
-> Evidence that they have enough financial resources to finance their stay in the country
