Types of Visas
Any Indian travelling to the US needs to apply for a non-immigrant visa which allows one to stay in the US temporarily. Depending on the purpose of the visit there are two types of visas, which are as under: -
- B1 Visa (For Indians travelling for business purposes) - Indians holding a B1 visa can visit America to attend a conference, meet foreign delegates, settle a business contract or any other business purpose.
- B2 Visa (For Indians travelling for tourism/ medical purposes) - Any Indian holding a valid B2 visa is allowed to temporarily visit America to visit family and friends, go for a leisure trip, participate in a contest, witness any event or pursue a short recreational course.
It’s noteworthy that, Indians can enter the USA for both business and tourism purpose at the same time, provided one holds a valid B1/B2 visa.
