B1 BUSINESS Visa
If you want to establish a business in the USA or visit America for business purposes then you might need a USA Business Visa.
The B-1 VISITOR VISA is a frequently used visa for business visitors to attend to business activities for a temporary period in the U.S.. It is a simple application process (on-line) and does not usually require the services of a Lawyer.
Permitted activities include negotiating contracts, consultations with business associates, participation in seminars or conventions, and undertaking independent research.
The B-1 visa does not permit employment in the U.S..
Canadian citizens and Visa Waiver country members do not need a visa if the travel is less than 90 days.
Examples of doing business, include negotiating contracts, consultations with business associates, participation in seminars or conventions, and undertaking independent research.

How to Obtain a Business Visa
Each case must be well documented with supporting evidence proving that all legal requirements have been met. The relevant US Consulate or Embassy will then adjudicate the visa application. The visa may be issued for up to 10 years, but the visa holder will normally only be admitted to the US for 6 months at a time. Dependents of the visa holder (spouses and children) cannot obtain dependent visas, but may be able to get B-2 visas. Please contact us for more information regarding dependents and admissions
