DS-160 Non-immigrant Online Application Form

Before starting the application process for permanent immigration, foreign nationals who enter the United States on non-immigrant visas (NIV) are considered to be here temporarily. The law presumes NIV holders intend to return to their home countries at the end of their stay in the United States. There are many NIV categories — student visas, business visas, visas for tourism, and investor treaty visas to name a few. While NIV applicants must have the intent to return to their home country, there are a few non-immigrant categories that allow a person to have dual intent, that is, to intend to be here temporarily now but eventually to immigrate. Prior to permanently immigrating to the United States, a foreign national will generally enter on a non-immigrant visa (dual intent NIV).
