The B-2 visa is the ideal entry pass for tourists interested in seeing the U.S. through brief pleasure trips. The State Department defines “pleasure trips” as legitimate activities of a recreational character such as tourism, amusement, visits to friends and/or relatives, rest, medical treatment, or activities of a social or service nature.
The B-2 Visa can also be used by spouses or children of C-visa holders who wish to accompany crewmembers or aliens in transit to the U.S.
B-2 applicants must prove:
- That they are coming to the U.S. for recreation or medical attention.
- That they are only going to remain in the U.S. for a specific amount of time.
- That they have enough money to pay for their trip.
- That they have a permanent residence in their home country to which they intend to return.
B-2 applicants may stay in the U.S. for up to one year.
