The first tip that can be given is that you should check out the status of your visa on the Federal Register before you visit USA. You need to know if your visa has been rejected or whether it has been accepted. This information can be obtained from the Visa Eligibility Verification System (VEVS), which is operated by the United States Department of State. If you want to visit the USA for absolutely no reason at all, then you can visit the United States Department of Homeland Security’s consular website and check the list of reasons for refusal.
While you are planning to travel to the USA, you also need to check out the local festivals and events in advance. There are many Americans who plan to go on an Alaskan fishing expedition in the spring season. However, if you are planning to visit the USA in the fall or in the winter, then you will have to wait till the later part of the year. For instance, the Alaska fall cruise is usually held between September and December. Similarly, the Canadian fishing expedition can also be held in fall.
It is imperative that you do not plan to overstay in one country. You cannot stay in the USA for more than six months without getting a new visa. Hence, you need to plan your travels so that you do not stay more than six months in any single country.
If you want to visit the USA for the first time, you should get a visa before you travel to USA. The best way to start your journey towards the USA is to obtain a visitor visa online. You can find a number of websites which offer visa online. However, it is imperative to ensure that you check out the eligibility criteria of the website before proceeding further.
Before you travel to USA you also need to check out the consular affairs of the American Embassy in your country. You will have to submit all the documents required by the Consular Affairs department in order to apply for a visa. It is advisable to prepare a list of such documents as well as a list of people who are authorized to receive them. Such documents include passport, application fee, insurance proof, expired letter from the American Consulate, receipt of application, and residence visa or green card.
You should also check out the financial affairs of the American citizen traveling to USA. You need to bring money along with you while visiting the country. There are certain visas which are available only for tourists and not for people working on an annual basis in USA or for those who stay in the country for business purposes. If you are not eligible for any of these visas you need to obtain a visa to visit USA. Check out the visa requirements and follow them closely before you travel to USA.
