In order to obtain a B-1 visa, you must be able to demonstrate the following:
If you satisfy the above criteria, you may then apply for a visa at a U.S Embassy or Consulate abroad. This involves completing Online Nonimmigrant Visa Application Form DS-160 and providing a recent photograph along with your application. Once your application is reviewed, you will be required to attend an interview with an Embassy or Consulate official. Preparing for this interview involves paying an application fee, gathering valid documentation. Depending on the outcome of this interview, your visa will either be approved, denied, or subject to further administrative processing.
Individuals who are granted B-1 visas will be permitted to stay in the United States for a period of anywhere from one to six months, unless an extension is approved. The maximum amount of time a person may stay in the United States under B-1 status, if an extension is sought and granted, is one year. All dependents of a B-1 immigrant must apply for a separate B-2 visa and must adhere to the regulations of that visa in order to accompany them during their stay.
