If you or a loved one is hoping to visit the United States, there are a few key steps to follow before and after obtaining a Visiting Visa. First and foremost, it is wise to ensure the reason for visitation is one of the allowed activities. A few examples include spending a short time with family, attending a wedding, or visiting a dying relative. Additionally, in some cases, citizens may not need a Visitor’s Visa because they qualify under the visa waiver program, which helps eliminate barriers to travel to the Unites States. Once you have made certain that you are visiting for an allowed reason, and you do in fact need a Visitor Visa, you can begin the application process.How to Apply for a U.S. Visiting Visa
