B-1 Visa/Status – Temporary Visitors for Business

In an effort to contribute to the further development of international businesses in the United States, the B-1 visa status may be granted to employees who wish to briefly enter the U.S. to conduct business on behalf of a qualifying foreign company.

Since these visas may be critical to the success and continued development of your company, you should consider working with one of the experienced Austin immigration attorneys with the Law Office of William Jang, PLLC. Our Austin legal team may help you ensure that your application is free of procedural mistakes in all phases of the filing process so that you can avoid any unnecessary delay.

Basic Requirements:

The B-1 visa status is available to non-citizens who intend to visit the United States for a brief period of time in order to conduct business on behalf of a qualifying foreign employer. The activities that these employees may engage in on behalf of their employer may include the following: the negotiation of contracts, the procurement of goods, to provide services, to solicit sales, and to consult or train parties based in the United States. B-1 visa holders will not be eligible to obtain employment in the United States. Additionally, recipients of the B-1 visa status must only be entering the U.S. for a limited period of time, intending to depart from the U.S. prior to the expiration of their status, maintain residence in their home country, and possess adequate financial capabilities.

Duration of Stay:

The B-1 visa status is initially granted for up to three months in most cases, though you may be able to extend the status for another period of six months.

Family Members:

Since there is no derivative status for the B-1 visa, spouses and children may only accompany a B-1 beneficiary if they hold a B visa.

Fees:

When attempting to procure the B-1 visa status for clients, the attorneys with the Law Office of William Jang, PLLC, charge the following in attorney’s fees when filing for this visa status in the United States and with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) (please take a moment to read this disclaimer), in addition to the filing fee that is currently charged by the USCIS:

Change/Extension Status in the USA:

  • $1,000 attorney’s fees
  • $370 USCIS filing fee
  • $85 biometrics fee for each family member (if applicable)

Application outside of USA at a Consular Office:

  • $2,000 in attorney’s fees for the immigration application
  • $1,000 in attorney’s fees for family’s application (if any family is also applying)
  • $160 + Reciprocity Fee per person US Consular fees

Our Austin immigration attorneys understand just how critical an extension to your stay can be to your business; we may do everything we can to help you ensure your application is complete and submitted by any applicable deadlines.
