Issued to those who wish to reside in the United States on a temporary basis, non-immigrant visas are different than immigrant visas in that they are based on a short-term need to be here.

Where an immigrant visa is issued to people looking to become permanent residents of the U.S., nonimmigrant visas are given to those needing access to work, education, medical treatment or business. Non-immigrant visas can also be issued to cover travel and tourism.
