Do you want to travel to the United States for tourism purposes? Then you may need a visa to cross its borders. Of course, you do not need one if you are visa-exempt. You should also check if you qualify for the Visa Waiver Program, in which case all you need is an ESTA if you travel by air. You can use iVisa’s Visa Checker to find that out. In all the other cases, a visit to the nearest US embassy is required.

Traveling for tourism purposes to the US means that you must obtain a B2 visa. It covers all the pleasure purposes. While you cannot get the visa itself online, there is a US Tourist visa online application that you can take advantage of us. Fortunately, the form DS-160, the non-immigrant visa application form, can be filled in online. iVisa will soon be able to help with that.

What are the requirements?

The US Tourist visa online application may involve the form only, but it is still better than nothing. It is enough that you must attend an interview. At least the form can be completed online. For that to happen, you will need the following:

  • Valid passport – every person who wishes to apply for a B2 visa is required to hold a passport that is valid for at least another 6 months from the intended date of departure FROM the US.
  • Photo – along with the application form, you need to upload a photograph of yourself. It needs to be as recent as possible and follow all the other photo requirements.
  • E-mail address – once you submit the application, we will process it and send you the application form confirmation page via e-mail. You will have to print it out before you go to your interview.
  • Means of payment – you will have to pay the fee for the B2 visa. In some cases, that is payable after the application form is completed but before the interview. It depends on nationality. Of course, service fees apply. iVisa will accept credit or debit cards, but PayPal, Alipay, and WeChat will also be considered valid methods of payment.

The form created by iVisa will have three steps. The first one will ask for your personal information such as name, date of birth, address, e-mail, and so on. Travel details and passport information are also required. At the same time, the first step will need you to make a selection as far as the processing time goes. That will determine the cost of your US Tourist visa. We cannot reveal the fees at the moment, but what we can tell you is that the faster you want your confirmation, the more you have to pay.

Moving on to the second step, you must cover the payment and revise your form. It is essential that your US Tourist visa online application form does not contain any mistakes. Otherwise, your confirmation will be invalid. The last step will ask you to upload the supporting documents of your application. This will be the moment when you must upload the photo, for instance. As soon as you are done, you can hit the submit button, and iVisa will take care of the rest.
