B-1 Visa/Status – Temporary Visitors for Business

While there are some people who choose to or are compelled to enter the United States and remain on a permanent basis, there are other individuals whose employment requires them to come for a much shorter stay. Persons who are employed by a foreign company and must conduct qualifying business in the U.S. may seek B-1 Visa/Status. Expanding a venture’s reach into the United States or nourishing the relationships that have already been formed can be vital to a company’s ongoing success and development.

Do not risk committing procedural mistakes in the filing process that could cost your business a valuable contract or delay necessary progress. A skilled and experienced immigration lawyer can assist you at all phases of the application process. Contact an Austin immigration attorney of the Law Office of William Jang, PLLC at 512-323-2333 to learn more about pursuing B-1 Visa/Status.

Basic Requirements:

B-1 Visa/Status is available for visitors intending to visit the United States for a short time to engage in legitimate business activities for the benefit of a foreign employer. These activities may include: solicitation of sales, negotiation of contracts, taking orders, procuring goods, providing service and sales, and consulting or training U.S.-based parties. Individuals in B-1 status may not obtain employment in the United States. The individual must also be entering for a limited duration, intend to depart prior to the expiration of status, maintain a foreign residence, and have adequate financial arrangements.

Duration of Stay:

Individuals who enter in the B-1 status are typically given an initial status of stay of up to three months. Extension of this initial status for another six months may be available.

Family Members:

There are no derivative statuses for B-1. Spouses and children may enter if they have a B Visa.
