The immigration departments of most companies around the world today require that foreign visitors apply for a visa in order to enter the country. Under the Visa Waiver Program, if you’re a citizen of the UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, most Western European states, or other selected countries like Singapore, Japan and Brunei (27 in all), and visiting the United States for less than 90 days, you need an onward or return ticket, a Machine Readable Passport (MRP), and a visa waiver form.
Unfortunately, these visa myths often lead to consequences of varying degrees, including the following: a.) An individual may forego applying for a specific visa category that would otherwise allow him to establish a profitable business in the United States, due to a mistaken believe that he is ineligible for the category; or b.) An individual might consider that she is authorized to carry on business activities in the United States that are, in fact, prohibited by law, leading to refusals of entry, visa denials, or worse.
If a foreign traveler has some questions about how to answer the questions so as not to be permanently barred from America, it would be prudent to them to pay for a legal consultation with an American Immigration Attorney who is a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA).
The need or absence of need of a visa generally depends on the citizenship of the applicant, the intended duration of the stay, and the activities that the applicant may wish to undertake in the country he visits; these may delineate different formal categories of visas, with different issue conditions.
We recommend that you consult with a qualified immigration attorney if you or your employer wish to pursue this option, given that a failed visa application, even through a simple misstep, may also render the applicant ineligible to travel on the Visa Waiver Program ever again.
