Types of Nonimmigrant Visas
If you are from a country that is not a part of the Visa Waiver Program, you will need a visa to enter the United States. You will need to apply for the visa that correlates with your reason for travel.
The common nonimmigrant visas are:
- A: For diplomats
- B: For travelers coming to the U.S. on business or pleasure
- C: For aliens in transit
- D: For crewmembers
- E: For investors and treaty traders
- F: For students
- G: For representatives from international organizations
- H: For temporary workers
- I: For media representatives
- M: For students currently at a non-academic institution
- N: For parents and children of “special immigrants” as categorized by the USCIS
- O: For foreigners with extraordinary abilities
- P: For entertainers
- Q: For participants in cultural exchange programs
- R: For religious workers
- TN: For NAFTA professionals
Once you determine the best visa for you, we can gather the necessary forms and make sure you complete them properly. Depending on the type of visa you request, you may need to attend a visa interview at the U.S. consulate in your country and pay filing and processing fees.
Changing the Status of Your Nonimmigrant Visa
You were issued your nonimmigrant visa on the assumption that you would return to your country-of-origin by the time that the visa expired. If you fail to do this or if a situation arises that requires you to stay longer, you will need representation from an Florida & New York immigration attorney.
If you want to change your visa status, start the process right away. The USCIS will consider your application if you submit it before your current visa expires, do not change your activity until you receive approval, and have not committed any crimes that would make you ineligible. An experienced advocate at the Sekou Clarke Law Group can work to simplify the process and seek a favorable outcome on your behalf.
If you need to change your visa status, call us first at (407) 269-8774.

Mr. Sekou has no limitations on the number of aliens in one case. Whatever the number, he will serve you to the best of his ability.
