Applying for a Visa? Learn How Our Experienced Firm Can Help

B-1 Business Visitor Attorney

We Take On Cases All Across the State of Florida

B-1 visas are available to business visitors or foreign nationals who are visiting the Unite States to conduct temporary business that will benefit a foreign employer. B-1 visas are usually obtained so that a foreigner can consult, sell products, attend conferences or business meetings and evaluate investments in the United States. Under a B-1 visa, business visitors cannot receive compensation from a U.S. source. While visiting, they cannot work without authorization from the U.S. government.

To get a B-1 visa, applicants need to show they are self-supported in the United States and provide proof of the purpose of their business trip. They must also demonstrate their intent to return to a foreign residence.

A B-1 visa can be approved for up to one year. It may not be extended beyond one year. Due to growing international business interests, there is an increasing need for foreign employees to travel to the U.S. to negotiate or invest in a business venture. A lucrative business opportunity can sometimes rest on the approval of a B-1 visa.

Travel purposes permitted with a B-1 visa include:

  • Consulting with business associates
  • Attending a scientific, educational, professional, or business convention or conference
  • Settling an estate
  • Negotiating contracts
  • Serving as a lecturer or speaker
  • Service engineers servicing or repairing commercial or industrial equipment
