Programs that assist in filing petitions for permits which allow foreign travelers who will be in the United States for a temporary period of time to present themselves to an immigration official at the border for admission into the country. Nonimmigrant visas are obtained at a U.S. Consulate or Embassy outside the United States, classify the visit according to purpose (e.g., tourism, business), and designate a period of time within which the individual can travel to the border of the U.S. and seek admission. Visas are often valid for multiple visits during a specified period of time. Temporary visitors must have a valid passport from their own country which is stamped at the time of entry, and may be required to maintain a foreign residence and demonstrate a means of financial support. Individuals from qualified countries, as defined in the Visa Waiver Pilot Program, may enter the country without a visa. Individuals holding a nonimmigrant visa may file an application to extend their period of stay or request a different nonimmigrant status.
