A tourist visa to the USA is needed for all foreigners who plan to visit the country for the purpose of travel, recreation, participation in cultural events and sightseeing. When all the consular requirements are met and a package of documents is correct, Ukrainians receive a B1 / B2 visa for 10 years without restrictions on the number of visits to the country. The period of stay in the States for each visit is determined by the officer when passing through customs control.

How to apply for a tourist visa to the United States

Foreign travelers provide an opportunity for US businesses to make money, but sometimes they are a migration threat to the country. There is always a risk that a tourist plans to stay permanently, get a job or use a visa for purposes that do not meet the established regulations.

In accordance with current immigration laws, the visa officer must treat every foreign traveler as a possible immigrant. Applying for tourist visas, Ukrainians must try to prove a guaranteed return to their homeland. It is advisable to have documents confirming the ties with the country of residence and to complete the application form and prepare for the interview with the visa officer.

The application form should be filled out electronically in English on the website of the embassy. The applicant will have to answer a hundred questions about the upcoming trip and his personality. A B2 visa is only issued after a successful interview at the United States Embassy. This procedure is required for applicants between the ages of 14-79. Other age categories are exempt from interviews, but the consular officer may offer a personal meeting. A tourist visa to the States is issued to applicants who meet the following requirements:

  1. Reasons for visiting the US should be for tourism, recreation, and cultural development.
  2. You should have personal savings which will be enough to pay all expenses for the trip, accommodation, and transport.
  3. You must return to your country of residence after the trip.
  4. Close ties with Ukraine (employment, family and minor children, car, real estate, or business).
  5. Absence of violations of the migration process, convictions, or tax arrears.

Also, the procedure for registering visa documentation includes the provision of biometric data, filling out a visa application form with a photo and providing a passport which expires no earlier than six months after the end of the trip.

The workload of the American embassy affects the timing of obtaining a visa to enter the United States. The applicant cannot independently influence the availability of free dates for interviews. The procedure can be accelerated only by timely submission of the application.

What documents are needed for a tourist visa to the United States

A tourist visa in 2021 is the most popular among Ukrainians. A document of this category is much easier to make than visas of other types but is subject to the full processing procedure. One of the most important stages is the preparation of a package of documents which should include:

  • Confirmation of hotel booking and air tickets.
  • Detailed travel plan.
  • A passport.
  • Completed visa application form.
  • Printed and electronic photographs that meet technical specifications.
  • Receipt for payment of consular fee.
  • Confirmation of an appointment for a personal interview.
  • Certificates from your place of work and the bank with a decryption of transactions on the account for the last six months.
  • Copies of birth certificates for children, change of marital status documentation.
  • Photocopies of documents confirming the ownership of property, transport, real estate, etc.

This list of documents is not exhaustive. The USA consulate reserves the right to require additional documentation. When submitting documents, it is worth using only original and genuine documents so as not to arouse suspicion on the part of the consular staff. Documents can be submitted in Ukrainian without translation.

Extension of a tourist visa in the United States is carried out under a simplified system and does not require an interview. In this case, it is enough to register the application form, pay off the visa fees and prepare the documents.
