B1 and B2 Visas

  • 6 min read

What Are the B1 and B2 Visas?

The B1 and B2 visas are for visitors who travel to America and plan to go back to their home country afterward. They are good for short-term visits of up to one year. Specifically, the B1 visa is for business visits while the B2 visa is for pleasure, tourism, and medical visits. However, since many people wind up doing both, the two visas are often issued together as a joint B1/B2 visa. This means you can visit the country several times on both business trips and vacations if you want, and you won't have to worry about the details. There are no quotas or limits to the number of B1/B2 visas issued every year.

What Can You Do With a B1/B2 Visa?

While you can conduct business with a B1/B2 visa, it's important to remember there are certain things you can&

Reentry Permit

What Is a Reentry Permit?

A reentry permit gives permission for a U.S. lawful permanent resident (LPR) — also known as a green card holder — or conditional permanent resident to reenter the U.S. after an extended period of time abroad. Permission is granted by the U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services (USCIS). LPRs are expected to permanently and primarily live in the United States. It can be a problem if a lawful permanent resident must travel abroad for extended periods of time.

A reentry permit must be granted prior to the lawful permanent resident's departure from the United States. Without a reentry permit, an LPR who resides out of the U.S. for an extended period of time may lose their status as a lawful permanent resident. For short-term international travel, a reentry permit is not needed. Only a green card and passport would be necessary to return t

What Is an EB-5 Visa?

The EB-5 visa is an investment-based visa for foreign investors who are willing to create at least 10 jobs in the United States and contribute at least $500,000 (in a regional center) or $1 million (in any location in the United States) toward creating a new U.S. business. Congress introduced the EB-5 program to attract foreign investment, increase job creation, and stimulate the U.S. economy.

The EB-5 visa allows foreign citizens to gain a Green Card immediately after entry to the United States for themselves and their accompanying family members. The main condition of being accepted for an EB-5 visa is to make an at-risk investment into a business that directly or indirectly contributes toward creating U.S. jobs. The minimum investment is $1 million, but the amount is reduced to $500,000 for "targeted

What Is a J-1 Visa?

A J-1 visa is a temporary visa that allows educational professionals and students to enter the country to receive or deliver training. J-1 Visas are essential to our educational system. It's a means by which college professors, researchers, exchange students and other scholars can enter our nation to get or deliver training in the spirit of cultural exchange. There are certain important requirements that you must meet to qualify for one of these visas, including a solid grasp of the English language, but if you have these qualifications, you can live and work in the United States during the exchange period.

J-1 Visa History

The J-1 Visa program was first established under the Fulbright-Hays Act of 1961. This program, more properly called the Mutual Educational and Cultural Exchange Act, granted the U.S. Information Agency the ability to administ
