How Do I Apply for a Non-Immigrant Visa to the United States?

A US Non-Immigrant visa allows you to visit the United States temporarily for business, pleasure, and other purposes. There are over 20 different types of Non-Immigrant visas for a variety of purposes for temporary travel.

Generally, a US Non-Immigrant Visa application starts with completing the DS-160 form. This form is accessible at the US embassy website of your country of residence. Form DS-160 can be completed online regardless of your desired type of visa. You submit the visa, pay the application fee, and then schedule an interview with your local US embassy. The embassy or consulate will process your application and conduct the in-person interview before approving or denying your application.
