To qualify for a visa, applicants must clearly demonstrate their intent to depart the United States after a temporary stay and to abide by the purpose of the visa (business, tourism, study, etc.). Applicants usually demonstrate their intent to depart the United States by proving that they have a stable family and economic situation to which they must return.

Almost all visa applications are adjudicated at the time of applicants’ appearance at the consulate, but some cases require additional processing that may delay completion. Issued visas are generally printed and returned within two business days of applicants’ appearance at the consulate.

At most, visas will be valid for two years, which means individuals can enter and leave the United States as many times as they want in that two-year period. This does not mean individuals may stay two years. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services officers at U.S. ports of entry determine the period of time travelers may stay.

Visas do not guarantee entry into the United States. Responsibility for authorizing entry lies with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services officers at U.S. ports of entry, not with interviewing consular officers.
