by | Apr 4, 2024 | Visa

In today’s global world, more and more people dream of taking on professional or academic challenges outside their own country. America, being a country of unlimited opportunities, attracts entrepreneurs, students and individuals with outstanding skills. Although Poland has joined the visa-free regime, obtaining a visa is still key to legally staying in the United States for more than 90 days.

In this article, you’ll learn how to get a visa to the US and the most popular types of visas that the Polish-American law firm Totu Legal can help with.

“After all, visas to the United States have been abolished…”

While Poland has joined the visa-free regime, obtaining a visa is still key to legally staying in the United States for more than 90 days. In addition, in order to travel visa-free you need to apply for a travel permit (ESTA). Unfortunately, not every person who applies for an ESTA permit, gets one.

If your ESTA is denied, you will still need to go to the US Embassy for a B1/B2 tourist visa.

In addition, if you wish to travel for educational or employment purposes, having a visa is essential for legal residence in the US.

Key Types of Visa:

B-1/B-2 Visa

Tourism and Business Travel

The most common use of this option is if ESTA is denied, and if you want to stay in the states for more than 90 days. On this visa, in most cases (depending on the immigration officer) residency is granted for 6 months. However, you cannot take up employment in the US.

F-1 Visa
