Q.What is the difference between an immigrant visa and a nonimmigrant visa?

A.Generally, recipients of immigrant visas have permission to stay in the U.S. for as long as they would like. Immigrant visas can be based on employment, family, business investment, or other ties to the U.S. A nonimmigrant visa is for temporary visitors to the United States who may be here to travel, seek medical attention, conduct business, or study. Usually, people in the United States on a nonimmigrant visa are not allowed to work here.
