Temporary Visas

A Temporary Visa (also called a non-immigrant visa) allows foreigners to stay in the United States on a temporary basis. U.S. embassies or consulates abroad review visa applications and grant visas, as does the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), which is a bureau in the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Foreign nationals and U.S. businesses must submit temporary visa petitions to the proper agency based on specific visa requirements. A variety of non-immigrant visas are available. Common visas include the following:
Temporary Visas for Business or Pleasure
Student Visas
Temporary Workers Exchange Visitors J Visas
Fiancé(e) K-1 Visa

Spouse K-3 or Child K-4 of U.S. Citizen Visas

Religious Workers R-1 Visa

Intracompany Transferees L-1 Visa

Extraordinary Ability or Achievement O-1 Visa
Athletes, Artists and Entertainers P Visas
The visa type specifies the activities in which the person may engage while staying in the United States, such as work, study, performance arts, etc. Generally one visa may apply to multiple visits over an indicated time period.
