2 types of visas

There are 2 main types of visas:Nonimmigrant visas – For travel to the United States on a temporary basis. Visitor visas are non immigrant visas for people who want to enter the United States temporarily for business, tourism, pleasure or visiting, or a combination of both purposes, also known as tourist visa.Immigrant visas – For travel to live permanently in the United States. Family-sponsored immigration is the way U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents bring family members from other countries to live permanently in America. All other immigrants who come here through family sponsorship fall into the “family preference system” which has been capped at 226,000 visas per year since 1990.

Visa Waiver program

Under the Visa Waiver Program Improvement and Terrorist Travel Prevention Act of 2015, travelers who have traveled to or been present in Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, or Yemen on or after March 1, 2011 or who are also nationals of Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, or Yemen are no longer eligible to travel or be admitted to the United States.

The Visa Waiver Program enables most citizens or nationals of participating countries to travel to the United States for tourism or business up to 90 days or less without having a visa if they meet specific requirements.

Diversity Visas

In 1990, Congress established an annual diversity visa lottery program to set aside a certain number of immigrant visas for people from countries that send relatively few immigrants to the U.S. The program has worked to prevent all of our immigrant visas from being awarded to persons from just a handful of countries.

Those lucky enough to win a diversity visa are permitted to come to the U.S. to reside permanently, even if they do not already have close relatives in the U.S. to sponsor them.
