How to get a US Visa

Visa is one of the very important requirements in entering the United States. However, having a US visa does not automatically permit you to enter the country. Holding a visa means that U.S. consular officer at an American embassy or consulate has reviewed your application and you are eligible to enter the country for a certain purpose.

A US visa has two categories; immigrant and non-immigrant visa. People who want to live permanently in US are required to secure immigrant visa, while those who want to stay in US temporarily, for tourism, medical treatment, business, temporary work or study should have non-immigrant visa.

Securing a US visa
Applying for a visa would take you about several weeks or longer since there are lots of processes you need to undergo with; filing of application, interviews, name checking, etc. Here are some basic steps that would be helpful in applying US visa.

  1. Make an appointment to visit the US Embassy, through phone call, email or in person. Waiting for appointments may take you long, so make sure that you will ask for an appointment as soon as you know you’re going to travel in US.
