NONIMMIGRANT VISAS

What is a Nonimmigrant Visa?

Each type of Nonimmigrant Visa comes with a different set of privileges. For example, an F-1 Student Visa gives the holder the privilege to study in the United States and a H-4 visa gives the spouse or child of an H-1, H-2 or H-3 visa holder the privilege to stay in the U.S. with his or her spouse, parent or guardian.
