        Getting a Temporary Visa

        If you want to come to the country on a temporary basis, whether that is for work, to visit, or for medical reasons, you will want to get a non-immigrant visa. While they are very helpful for a temporary stay in the country, you cannot use a non-immigrant visa if you want to hold a permanent residence in the country. With a non-immigrant visa, you simply gain the right to stay lawfully in the United States on a temporary basis. It does not allow you to vote here or get a new job here. Our Buffalo, NY non-immigrant visa is here for you to get this done the right way and help you to avoid any hang-ups. We are here to make this entire process smoother and give you peace of mind— not to add stress to your life.

        Applying for a Non-Immigrant Visa

        In order for you to be granted a non-immigrant visa, you need to be able to prove that you are within the guidelines that would allow you to apply. The United States is very strict when it comes to the regulations that they follow. You need to be able show that you are coming to the United States for one of the following reasons:

        • You are here for work
        • You need medical care
        • You are a tourist
        • You are coming for family
        • You are involved in a foreign exchange program
        • You are getting an education in the U.S.

        Depending on which reason why you are coming to the United States, you are going to have to apply for a specific visa as they each have their own codes. Our Buffalo, NY non-immigrant visa lawyer can help you figure out which visa code specifically applies to your situation. Furthermore, we can help you with the whole process, including the application and any extensions or issues you have while in the United States.

        Getting the Help You Need from a Buffalo, NY Non-Immigrant Visa Lawyer

        If you are going to be traveling in the United States with your non-immigrant visa, you have to have the following things with you at all times:

        • Your passport from home
        • Your entry visa attached to your passport
        • Your I-94 form

        We want you to be able to avoid any possible legal trouble while you are visiting the United States. You need to keep an eye on when your visa expires, too. Some can expire as soon as 90 days, some as long as 10 years, while a student visa expires when you are no longer enrolled in the school you came here to attend. Our Buffalo, NY non-immigrant visa lawyer will be by your side through the whole process to help you fully comprehend what you need to know so you can avoid getting into trouble with the law during your temporary stay.

        Applying for a Visa from Your Home Country

        If you are still in your home country while you are applying for your non-immigrant visa, you will go through something called “consular processing” for your application process. The way this usually gets done is your Buffalo, NY non-immigrant visa lawyer in the US works closely with a liaison who is typically a family member or future employer who is already in the US.

        The reason you will need to go through the consular processing for your petition if you are in your home country is because your application needs to go through the Department of State and not the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). It is common for there to be challenges with backlogs as well as limited access to files, meaning the process can take longer. The way you can make sure that you are doing this all correctly is to have the help of your Buffalo, NY non-immigrant visa lawyer.

        Getting a Student Visa

        If you are not a citizen in the United States and you would like to go to school here, you can get a student visa to let you get your education here lawfully. Again, this is a non-immigrant visa that is going to grant you temporary access. It will not let you stay here permanently.

        You can, however, eventually move towards citizenship if you want to go through an adjustment of status.

        The people who most commonly apply to get a student visa are individuals who want to go to a college or university in the US and stay here with this visa until their enrollment is up.  After you get your acceptance for your school, then you can be approved by the Student Exchange or a Visitor Program. Our Buffalo, NY non-immigrant visa lawyer is here to help you through this process.

        You might want to have a liaison that is already in the country to help you through this. You will likely have to go through the interview process, as that is mandatory for anyone who is between the ages of 14 and 79.

        Visa Waiver versus a B Tourist Visa

        Our Buffalo, NY non-immigrant visa lawyer can help you figure out which option for entry into the United States is best for you, depending on what you are coming for and how long you want to be here.

        Visa Waiver

        There are only about 40 countries in the world who participate with the Visa Waiver program that lets you come to the United States as a tourist with just your plane ticket and your passport. This program essentially lets you, as the name implies, waive the visa requirement. You would not have to visit the Embassy or apply for any visa. This gives you 90 days in the country that cannot be granted any extensions or conversions. The exception to that rule is that if you ended up getting married to a United States citizen during the 90 days, which may let you stay in order to get a green card.

        B Tourist Visa

        If you already know that 90 days is not going to be enough time for you to be in the United States, we suggest that you look into filing for a B visa. There are two subcategories of the B visa: B1 which is the business variation and B2 which is the tourist visa. In order to get either of these visas, you need to go to the US Embassy in your home country. You have to apply and submit your plan to them regardless of why you are going to be in the country.

        Our Buffalo, NY non-immigrant visa lawyer is here to help you through this process. We can help you with any further immigration matters that you need help with, as well.

        U Visas for Victims of Domestic Abuse

        Every year, there are 10,000 U visas reserved by the USCIS for those who are victims of crimes (particularly violent crimes). Far too many people have become victims of crimes including abuse, sex trafficking, assault, kidnapping and more. If you are someone who has become a victim of these types of crimes, we can help you apply for a U visa that requires you to work with law enforcement and requires you to fill out form I-918, which you can typically find at any local police department.

        You will need to have documents from law enforcement for you to be able to file for this limited visa. In order for you to be eligible for the U visa, you have to have gone to the police. Unfortunately, if you do not have this documentation, you will not be able to have your I-918 form signed off on.

        It is completely up to law enforcement whether or not the I-918 form gets signed. If you are worried about this, please also note that if your case has gone through courts, judges, or prosecution, they all might be able to sign the form and help you. Further, your Buffalo, NY non-immigrant visa lawyer may have the resources to guide you through this process.

        If you get the U visa, you will also have three years of a valid work permit that can help you get a social security card, as well as a driver’s license. Once the three years expire, then you can file to adjust your immigrant status, which ultimately can lead to you having permanent residency.
