Learn More: B1 Business Visa

Generally, a citizen of a foreign country who wishes to enter the United States must first obtain a visa. Visitor visas are nonimmigrant visas for persons who want to enter the United States temporarily for business (visa category B-1), for tourism (visa category B-2), or for a combination of both purposes (B-1/B-2). The visa allows a foreign citizen to travel to a U.S. port of entry and request permission of the U.S. immigration inspector to enter the United States.

If the purpose of the planned travel is business related, for example, to consult with business associates, attend a scientific, educational, professional or business conference, settle an estate, or negotiate a contract, then a business visitor visa (B-1) would be the appropriate type of visa for the travel. However, there are specific requirements which must be met by applicants to qualify for a visitor visa under U.S. immigration law.

The first step to apply for a visa is complete online a non-immigrant visa application (DS-160). During your application, you will be required to make an appointment for an interview at the U.S. Embassy or Consulate where you live. Once you have electronically submitted your DS-160 online application, you will receive the application form confirmation page which you need to bring for your interview on the selected day during the application process. Please, take care to answer all questions on the application accurately and completely; otherwise, you may have to correct your application and reschedule your visa interview appointment.

Frequently Asked Questions

A U.S B1 Business visa is a traditional paper visa that is affixed to a visa page on your passport. It is a temporary, non-immigrant visa, allowing the holder to travel to the United States for business purposes.


We require the following to submit your application:

  • Your Passport. It must be valid for at least six months beyond your period of stay in the United States.
  • Digital photograph
  • Travel itinerary, if you have already made travel arrangements.
  • Dates of your last five visits or trips to the United States, if you have previously travelled to the United States. You may also be asked for your international travel history for the past five years.
  • Résumé or Curriculum Vitae. You may be required to provide information about your current and previous education and work history.
  • Other Information. Some applicants, depending on the intended purpose of travel, will be asked to provide additional information when completing the online application.

It depends on the processing time you choose. We offer three options:

  • Standard Processing: 14 business days.
  • Rush Processing: 12 business days
  • Super Rush Processing: 10 business days.

The U.S. business visa is valid for 10 years after issue. In addition, it is a multiple entry visa and allows for a maximum stay of 180 days per entry.

The visa cost for the U.S business visa is 160 USD. Additionally, there is a service fee of 89 USD for standard processing. For rush processing and super rush processing the service fee is 119 USD and 149 USD, respectively

Not necessarily. In this situation, you must carry your expired passport with the valid U.S visa, along with your new valid passport. However, your vital personal information (name, sex, date of birth, and nationality) must be the same on both passports. If any changes have been made to your personal data for any reason (change in name due to a marriage for example) then you will have have to obtain a new visa.

Your passport must be valid for at least six months beyond your period of stay in the United States. This applies to each and every stay within the visa's 10 year validity period.

Even if your visa expires while in the US, you will be fine as long as you leave the US within the 180 days stay per entry limit.

No, you cannot receive any type of wages from a US based company on a B1 visa. This only allows you to conduct business related to your current employment from your country of residence.

You may be eligible for a B-1 visa if you will be participating in business activities of a commercial or professional nature in the United States, including, but not limited to:

  • Consulting with business associates
  • Traveling for a scientific, educational, professional or business convention, or a conference on specific dates
  • Settling an estate
  • Negotiating a contract
  • Participating in short-term training

You must demonstrate the following in order to be eligible to obtain a B-1 visa:

  • The purpose of your trip is to enter the United States for a business of a legitimate nature
  • You plan to remain for a specific limited period of time
  • You have the funds to cover the expenses of the trip and your stay in the United States
  • You have a residence outside the United States in which you have no intention of abandoning, as well as other binding ties which will ensure your return abroad at the end of the visit
  • You are otherwise admissible to the United States

Yes, technically you can. However, you cannot be paid any wages by that business. In addition, since one of the eligibility criteria to obtain a B1 Business visa is:

  • You plan to remain for a specific limited period of time
  • You have a residence outside the United States in which you have no intention of abandoning, as well as other binding ties which will ensure your return abroad at the end of the visit.

And since your business intentions have to be disclosed at the time of application, it may make it difficult to get an approval. We suggest you contact an immigration attorney for guidance if your intention to come to the US on a B1 business visa is to start a new business for alternate visa options.

The B2 visa is strictly for tourism purposes, while the B1 allows you to engage in certain business activities. Note that both are short term, non-immigrant visas.

If you wish to extend your stay, then you must file a request with the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

No. As with any visas, it merely grants you permission to travel to a particular country. Whether you are allowed entry will be at the discretion of the Immigration official.

No, spouse and children are not eligible to obtain a dependent visa if you hold a B1 Business visa. They must separately apply for a B2 visa.
