Welcome to the Nonimmigrant Visa section! This section is designed to give travelers information about what to expect before, during, and after the interview process.
First, what is a nonimmigrant visa?
Nonimmigrant visas (or NIVs) are generally intended for short stays in the U.S. for tourism, study, or temporary working opportunities. The most common NIV categories in the Philippines are B1/B2 business/tourist visas, C1/D seafaring visas, F or M student visas, and H1B temporary workers. For a more complete description of the NIV categories, visit: http://manila.usembassy.gov/nivisatype.html
VISAtisfied Voyager is intended to give helpful information about applying for both nonimmigrant and immigrant visas. To see information about NIVs only, click on the “Nonimmigrant Visas” category tab on the right side of the page. For complete instructions or to schedule an appointment, visit the official U.S. Embassy website.
