Visa Application Services

We often receive questions from people who are struggling with the visa application process. There are many different visa designations and figuring out which one is right for your situation can be complicated. There are two different types of visas: non-immigrant visas and immigrant visas.

Help With Non-Immigrant Visas

Non-immigrant visas are for individuals who plan to travel to the United States temporarily. For example, if you are traveling to the U.S. to attend a university or take a business meeting, you would apply for a non-immigrant visa. There are quite a few different non-immigrant visas available, depending on the reason for your travel.

Common non-immigrant visas include:

  • B-1 visas, used for conducting business
  • B-2 visas, used for tourism or medical services
  • E-2 visas, used for investment purposes
  • F-1 visas, used for academic or language development
  • H-1B visas, used for specialty work

Guidance for Immigrant Visas

Immigrant visas are for people who plan to move to the United States permanently. Suppose you are offered a full-time, permanent job in the U.S. You will need to apply for an immigrant visa. It is also common for people with families already living in the U.S. to apply for immigrant visas so that they can rejoin their families permanently.

Types of immigrant visas include:

  • Diversity visas
  • Employment-based visas
  • Family preference visas
  • Relative visas

Whether you plan to travel to the U.S. permanently or temporarily, the visa application process is quite involved. A lawyer can help you understand eligibility requirements and application fees, prepare and submit all necessary forms and paperwork, and help you prepare for the interview process. Working with an immigration lawyer in Charleston, SC can help you put your best foot forward and bring you peace of mind.
