Visa requirements for the USA
The visa requirements for the USA are very important. Arranging the correct visa for travel to the USA should be one of your first priorities. The USA has a visa waiver program which is applicable for passport holders from 36 qualifying countries. The countries that are included in this list are the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Japan and a substantial number of European countries. Under this program, you are allowed entry in to the USA for a stay of up to 90 days without a visa. Canadian and Mexican passport holders are subject to different rules in regards to their arrival and period of stay in the USA. If you are relocating to the USA, your stay is likely to be outside this restricted period of time and so you will require a visa. There are a number of different visa types available. The visa you need will be dependent on your reason for coming to the USA and needing to stay in the USA. The main two US visas are the immigrant visa and the non-immigrant visa. A non-immigrant visa is for people who are wishing to stay in the USA temporarily for the purpose of travelling and touring, business and employment or studying. The immigrant visa are for people who wish to become permanent residents of the USA without any kind of restrictions on their time of stay. The following documents will be required as part of your visa application process:
- Passport – valid for at least 60 days your expected time in the USA
- Photographs – 2 passport approved format photos
- Application for Immigrant Visa and Alien Registration (DS-230 Part I & II)
- Civil documents – birth (and marriage certificates) etc
- Financial support – proof of supporting yourself financially
