Understanding Nonimmigrant Visas

A nonimmigrant is an alien who seeks temporary entry into the United States for a specific purpose. The primary difference between an immigrant visa and a nonimmigrant visa is that the former is issued to a person wishing to live permanently in the U.S., while the latter is issued to a person who plans to stay temporarily and has a permanent residence outside of the U.S.

There are many types of visas available to temporary visitors of the U.S. The specific type of nonimmigrant visa needed is determined by immigration law and related to the individual’s purpose of travel.

The nonimmigrant classifications include:

  • Foreign government officials
  • Visitors for business and for pleasure
  • Aliens in transit through the United States
  • Treaty traders and investors
  • Students
  • International representatives
  • Temporary workers and trainers
  • Reformation of foreign information media
  • Exchange visitors
  • Fiancé(e)s of U.S. citizens
  • Intracompany transferees
  • NATO officials
  • Religious workers

It is important to understand that the issuance of a visa does not guarantee entry into the United States. A visa is meant to show that a U.S. consular officer has reviewed the individual’s application and determined that he or she is eligible to enter the U.S. for a specific purpose. The final decision for admission is left to the CBP officer at the port-of-entry during inspection upon the visitor’s arrival.
