What activities are allowed with visitor visas?

From employment-based immigration to short trips that revolve around sightseeing, there are many reasons why people come to the U.S. on a temporary or long-term basis. Regardless of the reason why you plan on coming to the U.S., it is imperative to make sure that you work through the immigration process correctly, which includes filing paperwork and understanding any restrictions that may be in place. For example, if you will be seeing the country with a visitor visa, you should know which activities are allowed and which are prohibited.

According to the U.S. Department of State, various activities are allowed on a visitor visa. For example, you are allowed to take a brief course that does not grant credit which can be applied to a degree. You are also allowed to be part of an amateur sporting or talent contest, so long as you do not receive compensation. In addition to spending time with family members and friends, you can also seek medical treatment.

However, there are certain activities which are prohibited, such as being paid to perform, work or go to college to pursue a degree. Once you have successfully completed the application process, you can look forward to pursuing permissible activities in the U.S. Should you encounter any problems or have any questions about your visitor visa, it is important to find answers as soon as soon as you can.
