Your Immigration Questions Answered by VisaPro.

Here, you will find detailed answers to many of most common immigration questions.

4.What privileges do I enjoy on US transit visa?
 On US transit visa, you may:
    Travel in and out of the U.S. when your final destination is another country
    Instead of getting trapped in the port, use the time for waiting for your plane or ship to visit your family or friends or use it for touring the place or shopping

5. What are the limitations of C-1 visa?
 On C-1 visa, you must:
    Engage strictly in visiting, touring or shopping activities. Any exception to this requires an appropriate visa
    Apply for separate C-1 visa for each family member. There is nothing like dependent C-1 visa

6. How long can I stay in the U.S. on C-1 visa?
  You may stay for a maximum of 29 days in the U.S. on C-1 visa. You are required to leave the U.S. on the proposed flight or ship of departure, or within 29 days, whichever is earlier.

7. Can I apply for extension of stay on C-1 visa?
 No, you may not extend your stay on C-1 visa. If you want to extend your stay you should apply for appropriate
B-1/B-2 visas or can travel on Visa Waiver Program.
 Note: If a foreign national seeks layover privileges for purposes other than for transit through the U.S. (for example, to visit friends or engage in sightseeing), he/she will have to qualify for the type of visa required for that purpose.
