G-4 Visa - Frequently Asked Questions


What is G-4 visa?

The G-4 visa is nonimmigrant visa which allows foreign officers or employees of international organizations of any rank to enter into the U.S. to engage in business activities and not for personal business and pleasure. The staff and immediate family members of principal G-4 visa holders also qualify for G-4 visa.

Note: You may be eligible even if you are not a national of the foreign country where you reside.


What are the limitations of G4 visa?

The limitation of G-4 visa is that you may perform only those duties that are related to the international organization and agreements designated by the President under the International Organizations Immunities Act.

How long can I stay in the U.S. on G-4 visa?

You may stay in the U.S. indefinitely as long as the Secretary of State continues to recognize your G4 status. There is no requirement that the applicant must have a foreign residence to which he or she intends to return.


Can I bring my dependents on G4 visa?

Yes, you may bring your staff and immediate family members (those closely related by blood, marriage or adoption, and who reside regularly in the household). They may join you on the same G4 status. Your personal attendants and servants may join you in the U.S. on G-5 visa.
