When entering the United States, you need to identify the proper immigration visa for your needs. It is important to note that different immigration visas exist. Even though you might qualify under several of them, a knowledgeable immigration law attorney can guide you toward the best one for your circumstance. For instance, if you have a special ability or offer a unique skill, you might qualify for an O-1 visa.
A visa means that a consular officer at an American embassy or consulate has reviewed your application and determined that you are eligible to enter the country for a specific purpose.
What does National Visa Center do?
The National Visa Center is the official institution responsible for all the immigration visa petitions. The NVC retains all pending cases until their adjudication by a consular office abroad.
Types of Visas offered by the US
Any unfamiliar resident who wishes to enter the US should get a Visa. It may be a non-migrant visa for a brief stay or an outsider Visa for a super durable stay. Indians need to take a non-worker Visa to enter the US.
Non-settler Visa is utilized by finance managers, sightseers, specialty laborers, and understudies who wish to remain in the U.S. for a transitory period to achieve explicit purposes.
