We encourage you to apply for your U.S. visa as quickly as possible since U.S. immigration officials generally require a minimum of 8 weeks to process an online application for citizens of Kenya for Visa B1/B2. U.S. non-immigrant Type B1/B2 is a temporary commercial and tourism visa.
Temporary business is authorized with a U.S. B1 Visa. When you're traveling to America as a tourist, you'll want to acquire a B2 Visa. For practicality, it's easy to apply and receive a combination B1/B2 visa interview online, which is an excellent visa for both purposes.
