Documents and evidence needed for a successful business visa application

Applicants should make sure that they have all the necessary documents and evidence required for their individual situation.

This includes:

  • Financial statements
  • Educational qualifications
  • Proof of professional license or certification
  • Any other relevant documents that support your application.

It is also important to provide evidence of the business’s ability to financially support you while in the US, such as bank statements or assets.

Fees for business immigration

There are a variety of fees associated with business immigration. The most common fees are:

  • The application fee
  • Biometric fee
  • Visa issuance fee

The application fee is generally a non-refundable fee charged by the USCIS to process an application. The biometric fee is generally charged by the USCIS to collect fingerprints and photos for security screening. The visa issuance fee is generally charged by the Department of State to issue a visa.

The amount of the application, biometric, and visa issuance fees vary based on the type of visa sought and the applicant’s nationality. For example, the application fee for an H-1B visa is $460, while the biometric fee is $85. The visa issuance fee for an H-1B visa is $190.

Common reasons for delays in business visa applications

When applying for a business visa to the United States, potential delays are an unfortunate reality.

The most common reasons for delays include:

  • Incomplete or incorrect documents
  • Inadequate proof of financial resources
  • Insufficient evidence of the business’s ability to support the applicant while in the US.

In some cases, it can even take longer than expected to receive a decision from the USCIS.
