Non-Immigrant Visas - 2023

Different types of non-immigrant visas are designated so that these people can visit the country, and you obtain a visa based on the purpose of your trip. They include a wide variety of purposes and durations of stay, which can be for students, tourists, work, etc. With the decrease in COVID-19 cases in 2023, there has been a significant increase in the number of visa applications and issuances. But have you ever wondered how many visas are approved?

Some well-known categories of non-immigrant visas include:

  • B1/B2: Visa for business or tourism.

  • F-1: Visa for students.

  • L-1: Temporary work visa for executives, managers, or employees with specialized knowledge from a foreign company.

  • O-1: Temporary work visa for individuals with extraordinary skills who wish to work in their field of expertise.

We would like to show you an average of monthly approvals that occurred in these categories, in some countries.
