Understanding the visa process can seem daunting. With the help of an experienced immigration attorney, the proper visa is more likely to be granted in a timely fashion. The Law Offices of KahBo Dye-Chiew in Honolulu, Hawaii is prepared to guide you in making the detailed application for a visa. For those persons who desire to come to the United States for temporary business purposes, a temporary business visa may be the appropriate choice to enter the country.
Please note that if you are a traveler visiting the U.S. as a tourist, or on business for up to 90 days from specific countries, you may be eligible to come to the U.S. without a visa provided you are in compliance with visa waiver program requirements. As a B-1 visa lawyer, KahBo Dye-Chiew can explain the process to you and examine your situation to see if you qualify for a visa waiver.
To obtain your temporary business visa you need to apply to the appropriate embassy or consulate in your native country. The embassies and consulates in over 200 countries overseas are responsible for processing applications for visas and issuing visas.
