What Are the Uses for a B-2 Visa?

A B-2 visa may be issued for any of the following purposes:

  • Visiting friends and family
  • Obtaining medical treatment
  • Participating in social activities
  • Vacationing (holiday)
  • Participating in sporting, musical, or similar events or contests without pay
  • Enrolling in a short-term recreational course of study (i.e. a two-day cooking class) where specified conditions are met
  • Other qualifying B-2 leisure activities

Individuals with a B-2 visa are not permitted to work or study during their stay, unless the conditions for a B-2 short course of study for recreational purposes are met. Dependents who wish to accompany a B-2 visa holder must apply for their own B-2 visa.

How Do I Apply for a B-2 Visa?

Individuals who wish to apply for a B-2 visa must complete an Online Nonimmigrant Visa Application Form DS-160, submit an accompanying photograph, and attend an interview with a consular at the United States Embassy or Consulate in your area. Interviews for individuals younger than 13 years of age or older than age 80 are generally not required, though individuals age 14 to 79 are required to attend an interview, except in some very limited circumstances. You must pay an administrative application fee before your interview is scheduled.

During this interview, the consular will ask you about:

  1. The purpose of your trip
  2. Your intent to return abroad after your trip
  3. Your ability to pay all costs of the trip

You may be required to present evidence of employment or family ties, prove the purpose of your trip and that you intent to return to your home country. Following this interview, your B-2 visa will either be approved, denied, or passed along for further processing.
