Visitor Visa (B-2)
The B-2 "Tourist Visa" is a temporary, non-immigrant visa that allows the holder to travel to the United States for tourism purposes.
The B-2 allows an individual to enter the U.S. temporarily for, among other things, tourism, vacation (holiday), visit with friends or relatives, medical treatment, participation in social events hosted by fraternal, social, or service organizations, participation by amateurs in musical, sports, or similar events or contests (if not being paid for participating), and enrollment in a short recreational course of study, not for credit toward a degree (for example, a two-day cooking class while on vacation).
