How to Apply for a U.S. Tourist Visa (B-2)

The process for filing for a B-2 tourist visa depends on the consulate where you apply, but it generally follows these steps.

Step One in filing for a B-2 Tourist Visa

Complete the Online Nonimmigrant Visa Application available at the Department of State’s website. This form is called the DS-160.

Be sure to print out the confirmation page after you complete your application. You’ll need to bring it with you to your visa interview.

Step Two

Schedule an interview at the U.S. consulate in your country.

Step Three

Prepare for your visa interview by paying the visa fee and collecting any required documents that you’ll have to bring to the interview. You’ll get a letter telling you how to pay the fee and what documents to bring.

Step Four

Attend your visa interview at the US consulate in your country.

During the interview, the consular officer will decide if you are qualified for a B-2 tourist visa.

Make sure you’re on-time and that you have all of your required documentation for your visa interview!

If everything goes well, then you’ll receive your visa and can travel to the United States.
