The most common types of temporary visas are those for visit or tours, to study, work or train or engage in business or occupational duties. Each temporary visa has an assigned letter. Tourists for example are issued either a B-1 (temporary visitor for business) or B-2 temporary visitor for pleasure. u
In most cases, and where the consul is convinced that you are most likely to travel to the U.S. often in the future, you may be issued a B-1 and B-2 visa.
Temporary visas, particularly the tourist visa categories cannot be appealed. Work and study visas may be appealed or reconsidered.
If your visa application is refused, follow these simple steps.
