Temporary Visas

How can you obtain a temporary visa to visit, study or work in the United States?
The most common ways to visit the US are B-1 and B-2 visas and the Visa Waiver Program. Persons may study in the US using F-1, M-1 and J-1 temporary visas. The most common types of temporary visas to work in the US include E, H, L, O and P visas.

This page contains a number of articles and links explaining the various types of temporary visas. It explains the difference between a “visa” and a “status”. We explain the procedure for obtaining a visa abroad as well as the process of applying for an extension of stay or a change of status in the U.S. We link to the online visa appointment system for U.S. Consulates in Canada and Mexico. We explain the most common temporary or “non-immigrant” visa categories, in alphabetical order from “A” to “U”.

Our attorneys have obtained temporary visas for thousands of E-1 treaty traders, E-2 treaty investors, H-1B professionals, J-1 trainees, L-1 intracompany managers and executives, O-1 persons of extraordinary ability, P-1 athletes and entertainers and R-1 religious workers. We represent over 100 employers and thousands of computer professionals, physicians, accountants, engineers, scientists, health care professionals including registered nurses across the US.
