The process of obtaining a non-immigrant visa to the United States has always been difficult. You need to know all the subtleties and nuances, especially when it comes to applying for visas for domestic employees. Many Americans have hired domestic helpers, trusting their home and children to them for many years. Often, when traveling to the United States on business, on vacation, for medical treatment or childbirth, people would prefer to bring their domestic staff with them rather than hire assistants abroad.
Domestic staff are nannies, cooks, personal drivers, footmen, housemaids, and personal assistants.
Typically, domestic staff can apply to the US Embassy for a B-1 visa. This visa category will allow domestic staff to accompany their employer to the United States and carry out their duties as usual. This category of visa is considered non-immigration, which allows you to stay in the United States temporarily up to 6 months.
