Nonimmigrant Visas

  • Immigrant Visas

Generally, a citizen of a foreign country who wishes to enter the United States must first obtain a visa, either a nonimmigrant visa for temporary stay or an immigrant visa for permanent residence. Citizens of qualified countries may be able to visit the U.S. without a visa under the Visa Waiver Program . All travelers coming to the United States under the Visa Waiver Program must obtain authorization through the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) system prior to initiating travel to the United States.

If you do not qualify for the Visa Waiver Program or are traveling to study, work, participate in an exchange program, or any other purpose that does not fall under a B visa purpose of travel, you will need a nonimmigrant visa.

A visa does not guarantee entry to the United States. A visa simply indicates that a U.S. consular officer has determined that you are eligible to apply for entry to the United States for a specific purpose.

A nonimmigrant visa is used by tourists, business people, students, or specialty workers who wish to stay for a particular period of time in the United States to accomplish specific purposes. According to U.S. visa laws and regulations, most nonimmigrant visa applicants must demonstrate to the consular officer that they have strong ties to their country of residence and must show that they intend to depart the United States after their temporary stay.

Immigrant visas are for persons who plan to live permanently in the United States. The immigrant visa permits an application for admission to the United States as a Legal Permanent Resident and is a potential step toward acquiring U.S. citizenship. Most immigrant visa applications begin when a qualified family member who is a U.S. citizen or legal permanent resident submits a petition on behalf of the intending immigrant to the U. S. Citizenship & Immigration Service (USCIS) in the United States or at a U.S. Embassy/Consulate abroad. It is also possible for a U.S. employer to file a petition for a foreign national whom the employer wishes to hire for an eligible permanent position.

MANILA (Reuters) -The Philippines has no plans to grant the United States access to more military bases, President Ferdinand Marcos Jr said on Monday, after nearly doubling the number last year under a joint defence pact.

Beijing has previously accused the Philippines of "stoking the fire" when it increased the number of bases the U.S. military could use to nine from five, with the new sites located close to potential flashpoints.

"The answer to that is no," Marcos said in response to a query whether the Philippines would allow the U.S. access to more bases.

"The Philippines has no plan to create any more bases or give access to any more bases," he told a forum with foreign correspondents.

Last year Washington and Manila discussed further expanding the number of bases U.S. forces could access under the Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement (EDCA) from nine.

Three of the four sites faced north towards Taiwan and one was near the Spratly Islands in the South China Sea, where Manila and Beijing have had frequent maritime run-ins that included China's use of water cannon and collision tactics.

U.S. President Joe Biden, who hosted Marcos and Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida in Washington last week at a first-of-its-kind three-way summit, has asked Congress for a further $128 million for infrastructure projects at the nine EDCA sites.

The three leaders expressed "serious concerns" about China's "dangerous and aggressive behaviour" in the South China Sea, a conduit for more than $3 trillion of annual ship-borne commerce claimed by China despite overlapping claims by other countries.

The three countries' co-operation was not "directed at anyone or against anyone", Marcos told the forum, but was merely a strengthening of ties among them.

A deepening row between China and the Philippines has also made it challenging for the latter to explore oil and gas in the South China Sea, despite an agreement between them to resume talks about joint exploration.

"When we say that we would like to explore, they insist that these areas are in Chinese territory and therefore Chinese law must prevail," Marcos said.

"We, of course, do not accept that. We say this is Philippine territory, and therefore, Philippine law should prevail."

He added, "I don't really think we have a proper agreement and it really comes down to that issue, which law should apply."

Last year Chinese President Xi Jinping said Beijing was willing to resume talks with the Philippines for potential joint oil and gas exploration in the South China Sea.
