The U.S. Nonimmigrant Visa, with 23 main categories (only 4 of which are limited in number), there’s something for everyone. The ticker at the gate shows the same. Some 40,000,000 (40 million!) nonimmigrants come to the U.S. each year.
The letter appellation of each visa reflects the code section of federal legislation providing for the same. Google CFR (Code of Federal Regulations) 214 or INA (Immigration and Nationality Act) 101 to check it out.
Below is an alphabetical listing of the major visa categories:
A: career diplomats
B: temporary visitors for business and plaure
C: aliens in transit
D: crew members
E: treaty traders, investors, and temporary Australian workers
G: international organization representatives
I: foreign media representatives
J: exchange program visitors
K: fiancé(e)s or spouses (and their children) of U.S. citizens
