Tampa Visa Attorney

How to Apply for a Visa

When a foreign national wishes to come to the United States, they must obtain a visa. The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 is the legislation which governs and lays out the specific qualifications and requirements which must be met in order to obtain a visa. While there are many different types of visas, there are two primary categories of visa; the immigrant visa and the non-immigrant visa.

Over the years, there have been individuals who have attempted to enter and stay in the U.S. illegally, either through fraudulent marriages, falsified documents, or other methods. Because of that fact, additional Acts were enacted by Congress to toughen penalties on individuals found to be illegally in the United States. This is why if you want to come to the U.S. for school, work, to marry the U.S. citizen you have fallen in love with, or any other valid reason, we advise you seek counsel from an experienced Tampa immigration attorney at our firm right away.

Due to the various types of visas which can be issued for foreign nationals, applying for a visa can be a complex process. If you are unfamiliar with immigration law, simple mistakes and errors could ultimately jeopardize your ability to obtain a visa and stay in the U.S. either temporarily or permanently. Our attorneys will take the time to review your qualifications, help determine the visa that applies to you and your situation, and advise you of the proper course of action to pursue. Our attorneys are board certified, knowledgeable in all aspects of immigration law and have over 100 years combined experience helping clients with their immigration needs.

We would rather work with you to obtain your visa, naturalization or citizenship, than have to build you a deportation defense. Our attorneys, however, are here to assist you in obtaining your immigration visa, regardless of the legal path we take to accomplish that.
