Quick Overview

If you travel to the United States for tourism, visit friends or relatives, or for medical purposes, you may qualify for a B-2 Tourist Visa. B-2 Tourist Visas are required for citizens of countries that are not included in the Visa Waiver Program who wish to visit the United States for leisure or tourism. But citizens of countries included in the Visa Waiver Program are required to obtain a B-2 visa if they plan to stay for longer than 90 days in the U.S., or to change status to other nonimmigrant visa, or adjust status to permanent resident (Green Card) after entering the country. The maximum length of stay for visitor visa holders is 6 months and the immigration officer at the port of entry determines how long each visitor is allowed to stay in the country, though the majority of visitors are allowed a six month stay.
