What do non-immigrant visas do?

International visitors add greatly to a nation's cultural, education and economic life. A visa shows custom officials that you are authorized to enter a nation. There are many kinds of non-immigrant visas, each with different restrictions on:
  • How long you can stay
  • Whether you can work during your stay
  • Whether you can leave and re-enter the country.

For example, non-immigrant visas for U.S. are for international travelers (citizens of other countries), coming to the U.S. temporarily. The visa, placed in your passport when issued, allows you to travel to a U.S. port-of-entry (airport, for example) and request permission of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Customs and Border Protection immigration officer to enter the U.S. A visa does not guarantee entry into the U.S.
