General B1/B2 Visa Description

The B1/B2 visa is a temporary non-immigrant visa for tourists and business travelers.
This visa type covers business trips, vacations, visiting family, attending conferences, and even receiving medical treatment.
It is the most common visa used to travel to the United States. At the same time, it is also the U.S. visa category with the highest refusal rate. 
This visa type doesn’t allow for employment or study in the U.S. 

Common Issues B1/B2 Visa Applicants Have:

Not showing sufficient ties to home country
Previous refusals
Your “story” doesn’t make sense


  • While you may have good intentions for using
    the B1/B2 visa when you go into the visa interview, the Visa Officer may not see those intentions accurately. Since this is a temporary visa, the Visa Officer wants to be sure the applicant will only be using this visa temporarily. But, B1/B2 visa interviews are generally very short, so it is often difficult to fully understand one’s situation in such a short period of time. That is why it is so important to prepare fully for your interview.
