What business activities qualify for the B-1 Visa?
When you apply for the B-1 visa, you must meet three main requirements. The first is proving that your stay is temporary. You must establish that you have a place of residence outside the U.S. when you intend to return. The second is that you will not take a salary from a U.S. business. Finally, you must prove that you will be engaged in business.
Some examples of “business” include:
- Negotiating a contract
- Settling an estate
- Consulting with business associates
- Attending a business convention or conference
- Participating in training
In addition, you are asked to argue why this business activity is necessary. With the guidance of a Houston B-1 visa lawyer, meeting these requirements will seem far less challenging.
Don’t Try To Apply On Your Own
If you plan to travel to the United States for one of the activities listed above, it is of vital importance that your visa application is submitted and approved without incident. A denied application can have serious effects on your business. Don’t leave your application to chance. Contact our Houston B-1 visa attorney to discuss your immigration needs.
