Am I eligible for a visa?
Before entering the country, noncitizens typically must first obtain a visa from the United States. The visa is usually placed in the traveler’s passport. Certain international travelers may be eligible to travel to the United States without a visa if they meet the requirements for visa-free travel.
The United States Department of State maintains a directory of visa types at travel.state.gov/content/visas/en/general/all-visa-categories.html.
For information about a pending visa application, applying for citizenship, and other frequently asked questions, visit the USCIS website at www.uscis.gov.
