If you plan to travel to the United States for work, you will probably need to apply for a business visa. Most of the time, employees use a B-1 visa for this purpose. Whenever you are dealing with immigration, things can get complicated. An experienced Orlando immigration attorney at The Sekou Clarke Law Group can assist you with your application, any appeals, or any complications in the process. We are immigrants working for immigrants. One of our team members even has first-hand experience with immigrating to the United States. This allows us to be compassionate, caring, and client-centered.
Let us be a part of your story. Call (407) 269-8774 to learn more about how our Orlando business visa attorneys can help you.
Restrictions of a B-1 Visa
The U.S. is very specific about the type of “business” that can be conducted while on a B-1 visa. Workers can attend business meetings, go to conferences, purchase goods or materials, interview or hire employees, conduct business relations, service a machine, and more.
However, it is strictly prohibited to travel to the U.S. to help with a family business or start conducting business. In addition, travelers cannot work under the supervision of an American employer, accept paid or unpaid employment, or take work as a professional entertainer or athlete. There are other visas available for these purposes. If your business dealings don't fall under the guidelines of a B-1, apply for an H-1 or L-1 temporary worker visa instead.
The Visa Waiver Program
Did you know that you may not need a visa to enter the U.S. on business? The Visa Waiver Program allows citizens of certain countries to travel to America for less than 90 days visa-free. Travelers can only exercise this privilege if they have not previously violated any terms of immigration (such as overstaying a previous visa).
Some of the countries that currently participate in this program include:
- United Kingdom
Countries involved in the Visa Waiver Program also permit tourism for under 90 days.
