B visa for Voluntary Service for a Non-profit or Religious Organization

Visitors to the United States (B Visa) can enter for many reasons. Citizens of most foreign countries require a visitor visa prior to entry while some foreign nationals are visa-exempt or can participate in the visa waiver program. In any case, prior to entry to the United States as a visitor, you need to be certain that your intended activities fall within the limits of the B visa.

What is an invitation letter for US Visitor visa (B1/B2), and how do I write one?

If you have a friend or family member coming from another country to visit you in the United States, you might be asked to write an invitation letter. Although not a requirement, an invitation letter from a US citizen or legal permanent resident (LPR), can strengthen your B visa application.  Invitation letters are helpful because they detail that you will have a place to stay, sufficient financial support, and a definitive departure date.
