The B-2 visa is designed for the admission of tourists to the United States of America. The United States of America admits around 13 million people per year as tourists. The United States government defines “tourists” as persons coming to the United States for “pleasure.” However, over the years, the B-2 visa has expanded to include persons coming for health reasons, participating in amateur athletics, and accompanying U.S. Armed Forces personnel as dependents.
The critical factors in qualifying for the B-2 visa are that the consular officer must be convinced that the person coming to the United States will not engage in work; is coming for a short period of time with a clear purpose; and will depart at the end of the visit.
