Attention, tourist! Your visa is for leisure only.

If you are (or intend to go) to the USA with a B1/B2 visa, your purpose in the country must be only one: tourism!

This is a non-immigrant visa that allows entry into the country for business purposes (B1) and tourism/visitor (B2). It is granted for temporary activities, such as vacation trips, visits to family and friends, participation in social events, and limited business activities.

Despite being a gateway to the USA, the tourist visa (B1/B2) comes with important restrictions such as the prohibition of studying and working during the stay in the country.

Since this visa grants the visitor up to 180 days of legal stay in the USA, it is common to find people who take advantage of this time to take a course or even to work remotely for their home countries.

One must be very careful because this is not allowed!

Such actions violate the conditions of the visa and can result in serious consequences, such as immediate revocation, deportation, and even a ban on returning to the USA for a specified period of time.

Furthermore, these violations can negatively affect the individual's reputation with immigration authorities, making it difficult for future attempts to obtain visas or entry authorizations into American territory.

In other words, it is very important to understand and respect the conditions of the tourist visa to avoid adverse consequences. If you entered the USA and your intention has become to study or work, it is necessary to request a change of status. And, with that, the Murtaz Law team can help you!
