B 1

B-1 Business Visitors

B-1 Status

Business visitor visas are issued to foreign nationals who enter the United States to engage in commercial transactions which do not involve gainful employment at your company. Examples of permitted transactions under B-1 status include negotiating contracts, consulting with business associates or litigation. B-1 visa holders may also enter the U.S. to undertake company-related research or participate in scientific, educational, professional or business conventions, conferences and seminars.


The visa issued by the State Department is often valid for a 10 year period, however, once the B-1 visitor is inspected by an immigration officer and admitted into the United States s/he will typically be given six months to conduct business in the United States. It is possible to extend your stay in B-1 status beyond six months after your arrival into the United States.
