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. We discuss entering the United States for clerkships and internships below.
Entry into many professions can begin with fellowships and internships. Under the USMCA (NAFTA), TN visa status is available to both interns and fellows that will be working in the United States at a professional level under a TN visa profession. We discuss working in the United States under TN visa status on a fellowship or internship here.
