How to apply for a B-1 visa?

Business travelers who are staying the U.S. for more than 90 days, or frequently visit the U.S. need a B-1 visa. It is possible for a B-1 visa to be issued with a validity ranging from one to ten years. It is important to note that all B-visas falls under the nonimmigrant category.

Business travelers intending to stay in the U.S. for less than 90 days can apply for the Visa Waiver Program (VWP). Since the same regulations apply to VWP travelers, it is important that they be informed about the B-1 visa process as well. Please note that travelers whose nationality is excluded from the VWP will always need a visa.

Who can apply for a B-1 visa?

The B-1 visa is for employees who have a restricted stay in the U.S. The B-1 Business Travelers Visa includes, but is not limited to, employees of religious or charitable professions, foreign boards of American companies, the personal or domestic staff of American citizens abroad, professional athletes, flight crew members, and U.N. interns.

How to apply for the B-1 visa?

You apply for a B-1 visa at a U.S. Consulate/Embassy. Our service supports and guides you through the entirety of the visa process. We help you complete all required visa forms, collect all necessary documents, and prepare you for the U.S. Consulate/Embassy interview.

Service for companies

Companies have the option to book our visa service on a case by case basis. We offer business trip seminars to companies, in order to acquaint employees to the visa process.  

If your B-1 visa was rejected

Visa rejections often occur when required documents are unclear or contain ambiguous information. If your application is rejected, a U.S. Consulate/Embassy official will inform you during the interview process.

If your application was rejected for the first time, subsequent applications will be a challenge. Normally, if your visa has been denied but you still attempt to enter the U.S. you will be refused entry.

It is especially important for industrial workers and service technicians to be informed about the visa process, because of strict regulations. These travelers should be properly prepared for the visa interview, their respective entries, and their activities while in the U.S. It is important to consider that industrial workers without necessary documentation or visas can potentially be prosecuted for illegal employment. In this case, most workers do not even have the chance to reach their site of employment before they are sent back to their home country.

These potential complications with the visa process could lead to larger problems like assembly delays or even liability claims.
