The correct use of a visa
September 26, 2022


Every kind of visa has its correct use; therefore, the activities allowed according to the visa class must be respected. The visa allows you to travel to the US for the reason you explained in your application, but only the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officer determines if you are eligible to enter the US and for how long. It is your responsibility to always comply with the terms of the visa throughout your permitted stay. For example, a person traveling on a tourist visa cannot study full-time or do any kind of work. Remember that the DS-160 is your letter of introduction to the consular officer in the interview, which is why it is so important to fill it out correctly and honestly. Do not hide anything in the application; You will have the opportunity to explain the facts during the interview. Help us evaluate your application in an objective way.
