Required Documents Before Visiting US for Non-Immigrants

There are different
types of visas for different purposes, and each has its own set of
requirements. In general, here are a few documents that you will need to submit
to apply for a US Visa.

US tourist Visa

A US Tourist Visa is a
document that allows foreign citizens to enter the United States for tourism or
business-related purposes. This type of visa is typically valid for six months
or less and allows the holder to enter the US multiple times during that
period. To apply for a US Tourist Visa, foreign citizens must first submit an
online application and then attend an interview at a US Embassy or Consulate.

Visa Waiver Program

The Visa Waiver Program
(VWP) is a program that allows citizens of certain countries to travel to the
United States for business or tourism for 90 days or less without having to
obtain a visa. Citizens of VWP countries must still meet all other requirements
for admission into the United States, such as having a valid passport and adequate
funds for their stay.

To be eligible for the
VWP, citizens of VWP countries must have the following; 

E-Passport – a passport with an
electronic chip that contains biometric information. The chip allows
immigration officials to quickly and accurately confirm the identity of
the passport holder. Citizens of VWP countries must also register online
through the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) before
traveling to the United States.
Once registered, travelers will
receive an email confirmation with their ESTA registration number, which
they should bring with them when they travel. When arriving in the United
States, travelers will need to present their passports and ESTA
registration numbers to immigration officials. If everything is in order,
travelers will be admitted into the United States and can enjoy their
trip! 

Valid Visa Stamp

All immigrants must have
a valid US visa stamp on their passports. This is usually obtained by applying
for a visa at a U.S. embassy or consulate abroad. The type of visa you will
need depends on the purpose of your visit. 

Once you have been
granted a visa, it will be stamped in your passport by a U.S. consular officer.
The visa stamp indicates that you are allowed to enter the United States for a
specific purpose and a specific period. When you arrive at a port of entry in
the United States (usually an airport), the immigration officer will check your
passport and visa stamp to make sure that you are eligible to enter the
country. It is important to note that having a valid US visa does not guarantee
that you will be allowed into the United States. The immigration officer at the
port of entry still has the final say on whether or not to admit you into the
country.

USA require a lot of documents before entering their
country. To make sure that you will surely enter to this beautiful
destination make sure that you complete all the documents needed.
