  • Consult with business associates;
  • Attend a scientific, educational, professional or business convention, or a conference on specific dates;
  • Settle an estate;
  • Negotiate a contract;
  • Participate in short-term training.

B-1/B-2 Business & Pleasure Visa
We understand that business and pleasure are often mixed when traveling to the U.S. and therefore the B-1 and B-2 are often issued as a combined “B-1/B-2” Visa.
