If you are in the process of applying or considering applying for a visa, the Colorado Springs visa lawyers at Joseph & Hall P.C. are here to help. Read on to learn more about the visa process and how an attorney can help support your success throughout it.
If you or a loved one is not a U.S. citizen and is looking to remain in the United States for longer than a vacation, you should know how visas work. For a person from a foreign country to enter the United States, generally, they must obtain a U.S. visa applicable to their situation. If granted, a U.S. visa is placed in the passport of the traveler, which they can show to U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP). Some travelers are able to come to the United States without a visa if certain requirements are met for visa-free travel, and they do not plan to work in the U.S.
Different types of visas are available, depending on your goals and why you are coming to the United States. There are nonimmigrant visas, which are used for travel on a temporary basis, and there are also immigrant visas, which are for those who plan to live long-term in the United States. Nonimmigrant visas are available for temporary visits for work-based purposes, athletics, art, tourism, and other reasons. Immigrant visas are generally for spouses or close relatives of U.S. citizens who are moving to the U.S. or employees who plan to have long-term employment or business endeavors.
The visa process can be complex and may require more paperwork than some people expect. Knowing which visa to apply for, which application forms to fill out, where to submit them, and other logistics can be very time-consuming and confusing, especially if this is your first time applying for a visa.
Errors in the visa application process can lead to delays or even denials, so you want to make sure that you complete everything as needed from the start. Reaching out to an attorney for support through the process can be of particular value to you in achieving the visa you need as quickly and efficiently as possible. Denials and the related appeals process can take time and could delay travel or business plans, so moving through the process properly the first time is important. An immigration attorney can help with the entire process for you or a loved one.
