NON-IMMIGRANT VISAS
TEMPORARY RESIDENCY

Non-immigrant visas are issued to those who want to come to the United States on a temporary basis.  Below is a list of various non-immigrant visas available to people whom want to make use of these types of visas in order to come to the United States.  Please call for more details.

VISITOR, INVESTOR AND STUDENT VISAS

B-1/B-2 Visitor's Visas

Available for visits to the U.S. for business or pleasure.  B-1 business visitor visas are for a short duration and must not involve local employment. Nationals of certain countries may be eligible to visit the U.S. for up to 90 days without obtaining a visa.

E-1/E-2 Treaty Trader and Investor Visas

Investors and traders and their employees may receive visas to carry on their businesses in the U.S. if their home country has a commercial treaty with the US conferring visa eligibility.
