The U.S. nonimmigrant visa Type B1/B2 is a temporary visa for business and tourism. When you see ‘R B1/B2’ under your Visa Type, the letter ‘R’ just means you have a ‘R’egular visa instead of a Diplomatic or other Type of visa. You can see a sample picture of a U.S. B1/B2 visa below.
Above, you will see that to fill out the application for your visa you will need a recent picture, your name, address, and information from your country’s passport.
Temporary business may be conducted with a U.S. B1 Visa. If you are traveling to America as a tourist, you will want a B2 Visa. For simplicity, it is now easy to apply and receive a combination B1/B2 visa interview electronically which is a visa good for both purposes.
