Your Immigration Questions Answered by VisaPro.

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

1. What is G-2 diplomatic visa?
 The G-2 diplomatic visa is a nonimmigrant visa which allows other accredited representatives of any rank of foreign governments recognized by the U.S. to enter into the U.S. to work for an international organization and not for personal business or pleasure. The staff and immediate family members of principal G-2 visa holders also qualify for G-2 visa.
 Note: You may be eligible even if you are not a national of the foreign country where you reside.

2. What are the limitations of G-2 visa?
 The limitation of G-2 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.

3. How long can I stay in the U.S. on G-2 visa?
 You may stay in the U.S. indefinitely as long as the Secretary of State continues to recognize your G-2 status. There is no requirement that the applicant must have a foreign residence to which he or she intends to return.

4. How do I apply for G-2 visa?
 To apply for G-2 visa, you need to submit:
    Completed Form DS-156, Nonimmigrant Visa Application
    A passport valid for travel to the U.S with a validity date at least six months beyond the your intended period of stay
    Two photographs (37 x 37 mm) for each applicant, showing full face, without head covering, against a light background
