To be considered for a visitor visa, you need to meet one of the following categories:

  • Business (B-1)
  • Tourism (B-2)

Business (B-1)

Here are some purposes to visit that would qualify you for B-1:

  • To negotiate a contract
  • To attend a convention or conference related to your business/profession, or one that is educational or scientific in nature
