There is a difference between the purpose of visit on both of these visas. The former allows you to enter the American territory to pursue your business prospects and the latter allows you to explore culture, medical treatment and all of the entertainment, culture and rich history that the United States has to offer.
Business travelers may enter the United States using a B-1 'Visitor for Business' Visa. Typically these visas are issued as joint B-1/B-2 Visa.
Obviously there is a considerable 'gray area' in between what definitely is allowed and what definitely isn't. It is advisable to err on the side of caution when bringing overseas persons into the USA on business visitor visas.
The USA is a complete tourism package in itself, including a variety of tourist attractions, i.e. iconic landmarks, mesmerizing landscape sceneries, amazing wildlife, incredible nightlife, and breathtaking adventures, etc.
The United States of America is a spectacular country with exceptional cultural diversity, glorious monuments, magnificent landscape beauty, top business firms, and one of the best living standards of the people in the world. This is the reason that it attracts millions of immigrants and tourists every year. The B1/B2 Visa is a non-immigrant visa for the people who want to travel down to USA for various purposes such as Tourism, meeting friends and relatives, Business, participating in social events or any such activity temporarily.
While in the US as a business visitor, an individual may:
The following activities require a working visa, and may NOT be carried out by business visitors:
Those entering on visitor visas will generally be granted 6 months admission on entry, though the maximum allowable stay is 1 year. It may be possible to obtain a six-month extension to the visit visa as long as the candidate will be maintaining visitor status, and there are good reasons to do so. It is sometimes possible to change status to another longer - term visa whilst in the US as a visitor, as long as the candidate advised the relevant US Embassy or Consulate of this possibility beforehand, or there was no preconceived intent to do so.
US Visitor Visas should generally be applied for in a country of which the candidate is a Citizen or permanent resident. Applications made in other countries often run a high risk of being turned down. The most common reason for refusal of B1/B2 visas is the applicant showing insufficient evidence of social, family or economic ties to his/her country of residence that would ensure that s/he would return there following the visit to the USA.
If the necessary conditions are satisfied then the applicant can apply for a visa.
