Visitor Visa

Visa Waiver Program

Travel Without a Visa

Citizens of Canada and Bermuda

Generally, a citizen of a foreign country who wishes to travel to the United States must first obtain a visa, either a nonimmigrant visa for a temporary stay, or an immigrant visa for permanent residence. Visitor visas are nonimmigrant visas for persons who want to enter the United States temporarily for business (B-1 visa), for tourism (B-2 visa), or for a combination of both purposes (B-1/B-2 visa).

Here are some examples of activities permitted with a visitor visa:

Business (B-1)

  • Consult with business associates
  • Attend a scientific, educational, professional, or business convention or conference
  • Settle an estate
  • Negotiate a contract

Tourism (B-2)

  • Vacation (holiday)
  • Visit with friends or relatives
  • Medical treatment
  • Participation in social events hosted by fraternal, social, or service organizations
  • Participation by amateurs in musical, sports, or similar events or contests, if not being paid for participating
  • Enrollment in a short recreational course of study, not for credit toward a degree (for example, a two-day cooking class while on vacation)

Travel Purposes Not Permitted On Visitor Visas

These are some examples of activities that require different categories of visas and cannot be done while on a visitor visa:

  • Paid performances, or any professional performance before a paying audience
  • Arrival as a crewmember on a ship or aircraft
  • Work as foreign press, in radio, film, print journalism, or other information media
  • Permanent residence in the United States

Birth tourism (travel for the primary purpose of giving birth in the United States to obtain U.S. citizenship for their child) is not permissible on a visitor visa.

How to Apply

There are several steps to apply for a visa. The order of these steps and how you complete them may vary by U.S. Embassy or Consulate. Please consult the instructions on the  U.S. Embassy or Consulate website .

Complete the Online Visa Application

  • Online Nonimmigrant Visa Application, Form DS-160 – Learn more about completing the DS-160 . You must: 1) complete the online visa application and 2) print the application form confirmation page to bring to your interview.
  • Photo – You will upload your photo while completing the online Form DS-160. Your photo must meet the Photograph Requirements .

Schedule an Interview

Interviews are generally required for visa applicants with certain limited exceptions below. Consular officers may require an interview of any visa applicant.

You should generally schedule an appointment for your visa interview at the  U.S. Embassy or Consulate  in the country where you live. You may schedule your interview at another U.S. Embassy or Consulate where you will be present but aware that in some cases it may be more difficult to demostrate your qualifications for a visa outside of the country where you live.

Wait times for interview appointments vary by location, season, and visa category, so you should apply for your visa early. Review the interview wait time for the location where you will apply: 

Appointment Wait Time

Check the estimated wait time for a nonimmigrant visa interview appointment at a U.S. Embassy or Consulate.

Note:  Please check the individual Embassy or Consulate website to determine if your case is eligible for a waiver of the in-person interview.

Applicants scheduling visa appointments in a location different from their place of residence should check post websites for nonresident wait times.

Select a U.S. Embassy or Consulate:

Prepare for your interview.

  • Fees - Pay the non-refundable visa application fee , if you are required to pay it before your interview. If your visa is approved, you may also need to pay a visa issuance fee, if applicable to your nationality. Fee information is provided below:

Select your nationality to see Issuance Fee

  • Review the instructions available on the website of the  U.S. Embassy or Consulate  where you will apply to learn more about fee payment.

Gather Required Documentation

Gather and prepare the following required documents before your visa interview:

  • Passport valid for travel to the United States – Your passport must be valid for at least six months beyond your period of stay in the United States (unless exempt by country-specific agreements ). Each individual who needs a visa must submit a separate application, including any family members listed in your passport.
  • Nonimmigrant Visa Application, Form DS-160 confirmation page.
  • Application fee payment receipt, if you are required to pay before your interview.
  • Photo – You will upload your photo while completing the online Form DS-160. If the photo upload fails, you must bring one printed photo in the format explained in the Photograph Requirements .

Additional Documentation May Be Required

Review the instructions for how to apply for a visa on the website of the U.S. Embassy or Consulate where you will apply. Additional documents may be requested to establish if you are qualified. For example, additional requested documents may include evidence of:

  • The purpose of your trip,
  • Your intent to depart the United States after your trip, and/or
  • Your ability to pay all costs of the trip.   

Evidence of your employment and/or your family ties may be sufficient to show the purpose of your trip and your intent to return to your home country. If you cannot cover all the costs for your trip, you may show evidence that another person will cover some or all costs for your trip.

Note:  Visa applicants must qualify based on their ties abroad/to their home country, rather than assurances from U.S. family and friends. A letter of invitation or Affidavit of Support is not needed to apply for a visitor visa. If you choose to bring a letter of invitation or Affidavit of Support to your interview, please remember it is not one of the factors used in determining whether to issue or deny the visa.

Attend Your Visa Interview

A consular officer will interview you to determine whether you are qualified to receive a visitor visa. You must establish that you meet the requirements under U.S. law to receive a visa.  Ink-free, digital fingerprint scans are taken as part of the application process. They are usually taken during your interview, but this varies based on location.

After your visa interview, the consular officer may determine that your application requires further  administrative processing .  The consular officer will inform you if this required.

After the visa is approved, you may need to pay a visa issuance fee (if applicable to your nationality), and make arrangements for the return of the passport and visa to you.  Review the  visa processing times  to learn more.

Entering the United States

A visa allows a foreign citizen to travel to a U.S. port-of-entry (generally an airport) and request permission to enter the United States. A visa does not guarantee entry into the United States. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials at the port-of-entry have authority to permit or deny admission to the United States. If you are allowed to enter the United States, the CBP official will provide an admission stamp or a paper Form I-94, Arrival/Departure Record. Learn more about admissions and entry requirements, restrictions about bringing food, agricultural products, and other restricted/prohibited goods, and more by reviewing the CBP website .

Extending Your Stay

See  Extend Your Stay  on the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) website to learn about requesting to extend your stay beyond the date indicated on your admission stamp or paper Form I-94. 

Failure to depart the United States on time will result in being  out of status . Under U.S. law, visas of individuals who are out of status are automatically voided ( Section 222(g) of the Immigration and Nationality Act ).  Any multiple entry visa that was voided due to being out of status will not be valid for future entries into the United States. 

Failure to depart the United States on time may also result in you being ineligible for visas in the future. Review  Visa Denials  and  Ineligibilities and Waivers: Laws  to learn more.

Change of Status

If your plans change while in the United States (for example, you marry a U.S. citizen or receive an offer of employment), you may be able to request a change in your nonimmigrant status to another category through U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). See  Change My Nonimmigrant Status  on the USCIS website to learn more.

While you are in the United States, receiving a change of status from USCIS does not require you to apply for a new visa.  However, once you depart the United States you must apply for a new visa at a U.S. Embassy or Consulate in the appropriate category for your travel.

Additional Information

  • An individual on a visitor visa (B1/B2) is not permitted to accept employment or work in the United States.
  • There is no guarantee you will be issued a visa. Do not make final travel plans or buy tickets until you have a visa.
  • A valid U.S. visa in an expired passport is still valid. Unless canceled or revoked, a visa is valid until its expiration date. If you have a valid visa in your expired passport, do not remove it from your expired passport. You may use your valid visa in your expired passport along with a new valid passport for travel and admission to the United States. 

Travel for Medical Treatment

If you are seeking medical treatment in the United States, the consular officer may ask for further documents at your visa interview, which may include:

  • Medical diagnosis from a local physician, explaining the nature of the ailment and the reason you need treatment in the United States.
  • Letter from a physician or medical facility in the United States, stating they are willing to treat your specific ailment and detailing the projected length and cost of treatment (including doctors’ fees, hospitalization fees, and all medical-related expenses).
  • Proof that your transportation, medical, and living expenses in the United States will be paid. This may be in the form of bank or other statements of income/savings or certified copies of income tax returns (either yours or the person or organization paying for your treatment).

Visitor Visas for Personal or Domestic Employees (B-1)

You may apply for a B-1 visitor visa to work in the United States as a personal or domestic employee for your employer in limited situations. You may for a visitor visa as a domestic employee if, among other requirements, your employer is:

  • A U.S. citizen who has a permanent home or is stationed in a foreign country, but is visiting or is assigned to the United States temporarily; or
  • A foreign citizen who is in the United States on one of the following nonimmigrant visa categories:  B, E, F, H, I, J, L, M, O, P, Q or TN.

Learn more about your rights in the United States and protection available to you by reading the Legal Rights and Protections pamphlet.

Visa Renewal

Whether you are applying for the first time or renewing your visa, you will use the same application process (please review How to Apply , above). Some applicants seeking to renew their visas in certain visa classes may be eligible for the Interview Waiver (IW) which allows qualified individuals to apply for visa renewals without being interviewed in person by a U.S. consular officer. Review the instructions on the website of the U.S. Embassy or Consulate where you will apply to determine if IW is available and if you qualify.

Do I need a visa if I have an ABTC?

Yes, you will still need a visa to travel to the United States, unless you qualify for the  Visa Waiver Program . Having an Asian-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Business Travelers Card (ABTC) does not change visa requirements, your visa status, or the visa process for travel to the United States.

How can I use my ABTC when I apply for my visa?

If you have an Asian-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Business Travelers Card (ABTC), you might be able to schedule an expedited visa interview appointment. Review the instructions for scheduling expedited appointments on the website of the  embassy or consulate  where you will apply. 

Visa Annotations for Certain Maritime Industry Workers

Certain foreign maritime workers are eligible to apply for a Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) once in the U.S. If you, as a maritime industry worker, will perform services in secure port areas, your visa must be annotated “TWIC Letter Received.” Workers whose visas are not annotated will not be permitted by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to apply for a TWIC.

In order for your visa to be annotated, you must obtain a letter from your employer explaining the need for a TWIC and that you are a potential TWIC applicant. See a template example of this letter. You must present this letter when you apply for the B-1 visa. You must meet all other eligibility requirements for a B-1 visa. 

Complete information about the TWIC program is available on TSA’s website at  https://www.tsa.gov/for-industry/twic .

Visa Denial and Ineligibility

I was refused a visa, under Section 214(b). May I reapply?

Yes, if you feel circumstances have changed regarding your application. Review  Visa Denials  to learn more.

Misrepresentation or Fraud

Attempting to obtain a visa by the willful misrepresentation of a material fact, or fraud, may result in the permanent refusal of a visa or denial of entry into the United States.

Introduction

Welcome to the United States, a country renowned for its diverse landscapes, vibrant cities, and rich cultural heritage. If you’re planning a visit to this mesmerizing country, one of the first things you’ll need to consider is your travel documentation. For many tourists, a visitor or tourist visa is the key to exploring the wonders of the United States.

A tourist visa allows individuals from foreign countries to enter the United States temporarily for the purpose of tourism, pleasure, or visiting friends and family. It grants visitors the opportunity to experience the iconic landmarks, indulge in the culinary delights, and immerse themselves in the unique traditions that define this nation.

In this article, we will delve into the details of how long you can stay in the United States on a tourist visa. From the duration of stay to the visa waiver program, we will explore various aspects that will help you plan your trip effectively and stay within the bounds of the law.

Before we embark on this journey, it’s important to note that immigration regulations can change over time, so it’s always wise to consult the official U.S. Department of State website or seek advice from an immigration attorney to ensure you have up-to-date and accurate information.

So, let’s dive in and uncover how long you can stay in the U.S. on a tourist visa!

What is a tourist visa?

A tourist visa is a type of non-immigrant visa that allows individuals from foreign countries to enter the United States for a temporary period of time for tourism, pleasure, or to visit friends and family. It is typically issued for a specific duration, allowing visitors to explore the country and engage in various recreational activities.

Obtaining a tourist visa requires applicants to demonstrate their intent to return to their home country after their visit and that they have sufficient funds to support themselves during their stay. The application process involves submitting the necessary documentation, such as a valid passport, visa application forms, and any supporting documents required by the U.S. embassy or consulate.

It’s important to note that a tourist visa does not grant individuals the right to work or study in the United States. If you intend to engage in activities that go beyond the scope of tourism, such as attending conferences or pursuing educational opportunities, you may need to apply for a different type of visa that suits your specific purpose.

The validity of a tourist visa varies and is determined by the U.S. embassy or consulate. Generally, tourist visas are valid for multiple entries within a set period, often ranging from three months to ten years. However, the duration of stay allowed on each entry is typically limited to a specific time frame, as determined by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officer at the port of entry.

Understanding the limitations and regulations surrounding a tourist visa is crucial to ensure a smooth and enjoyable visit to the United States. Next, let’s explore the duration of stay allowed on a tourist visa.

Duration of stay on a tourist visa

The duration of stay on a tourist visa in the United States varies depending on several factors. When you arrive in the country, a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officer will determine how long you can stay by stamping your passport with an admission stamp. This stamp will indicate the date until which you are allowed to stay in the United States.

Typically, visitors on a tourist visa are granted a maximum initial period of stay of 6 months. However, the CBP officer has the discretion to grant a shorter period based on their evaluation of your circumstances. It’s essential to comply with the authorized duration of stay to avoid any legal issues or complications with future visits to the United States.

If you wish to extend your stay beyond the initial authorized period, you must apply for an extension with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) before your authorized stay expires. The extension request must be supported by valid reasons, such as medical treatment, unforeseen emergencies, or exceptional circumstances. It’s crucial to file the extension request well in advance to allow sufficient processing time.

It’s important to note that even if you have a valid tourist visa, the CBP officer at the port of entry has the final authority to determine the duration of stay. They may grant a shorter period if they deem it necessary, and it’s essential to respect their decision and comply with the authorized stay.

If you overstay the authorized duration of stay on a tourist visa, you may be subject to penalties and future immigration difficulties. It is crucial to understand the consequences of overstaying, which we will explore in the next section.

Now that we understand the general duration of stay on a tourist visa, let’s explore the Visa Waiver Program, an alternative option for certain eligible travelers.

Visa Waiver Program

The Visa Waiver Program (VWP) is an alternative option for travelers from specific countries who wish to visit the United States for tourism or business purposes for a short duration. The VWP allows eligible individuals to enter the United States without obtaining a traditional visa, making the travel process more convenient and streamlined.

Currently, citizens or nationals of 39 countries, including the United Kingdom, Germany, Japan, Australia, and many others, are eligible to participate in the VWP. To qualify for the program, travelers must meet certain requirements, such as possessing a valid electronic passport, having a return or onward ticket, and obtaining authorization through the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) prior to travel.

Under the VWP, visitors are typically granted a maximum stay of 90 days for tourism or business purposes. It’s important to note that this duration is non-extendable, and individuals must depart the United States within the specified timeframe to comply with the program’s regulations.

While the VWP offers a convenient way to travel to the United States without a visa, it’s crucial to be aware of the limitations and requirements of the program. Overstaying the allowed 90-day period or engaging in unauthorized activities can lead to serious consequences, including future travel restrictions and difficulties obtaining visas in the future.

If you are a citizen or national of a participating country in the VWP, it’s advisable to review the specific requirements and guidelines provided by the U.S. Department of State to ensure a smooth and hassle-free visit to the United States.

Next, let’s explore the options available for extensions and change of status for individuals who need to extend their stay beyond the authorized period on a tourist visa or under the VWP.

Extensions and Change of Status

If you find yourself needing to extend your stay in the United States beyond the authorized period on a tourist visa or under the Visa Waiver Program (VWP), there are certain options available to you.

For visitors on a tourist visa, you have the option to apply for an extension of stay with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). This process involves filing Form I-539, Application to Extend/Change Nonimmigrant Status, along with the required supporting documents and applicable fees. It’s crucial to submit the extension request before your authorized stay expires to avoid any legal complications.

The USCIS will review your extension request and consider the specific circumstances presented. Valid reasons for an extension may include medical treatment, unforeseen emergencies, or exceptional situations that necessitate a longer stay. The decision to grant an extension is determined on a case-by-case basis, and it’s important to provide compelling evidence and explanations to support your request.

Similarly, if you are in the United States under the Visa Waiver Program (VWP) and wish to extend your stay, you must apply for a change of status. This process involves submitting Form I-539 to the USCIS and providing the necessary documentation and fees. It’s important to note that the VWP does not allow for extensions, so you must transition to a different nonimmigrant status if you wish to stay longer.

It’s crucial to consult the official USCIS website or seek guidance from an immigration attorney to ensure you follow the correct procedures and meet all requirements when applying for an extension or change of status. Failing to do so may result in a denial of your request or even potential legal consequences.

Remember, it’s always better to plan your trip and anticipate your length of stay beforehand to avoid the need for extensions or changes in status. However, unforeseen circumstances can arise, and knowing the correct procedures will help you navigate through them smoothly.

Now, let’s explore the potential consequences of overstaying a tourist visa or the authorized period under the Visa Waiver Program.

Overstaying a Tourist Visa

Overstaying a tourist visa in the United States occurs when an individual remains in the country beyond the authorized period granted by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officer at the port of entry. While it may seem like a minor offense, overstaying a visa can have serious consequences and impact future travel plans.

When you overstay a tourist visa, you violate the terms and conditions of your entry into the United States. The length of the overstay can vary, ranging from a few days to several months or even years. Regardless of the duration, it is important to address the situation promptly and take appropriate action.

Overstaying a visa can result in several negative consequences. Firstly, it can lead to a violation of U.S. immigration laws, potentially affecting your eligibility for future visas or entry into the United States. Overstays can result in a ban on re-entry, making it difficult or even impossible to visit the United States in the future.

Additionally, overstaying can have financial implications. For each day you overstay, you may be subject to fines and penalties. These fines can accumulate quickly and become a substantial financial burden. In some cases, individuals who overstay their visa may face deportation proceedings, which can further complicate matters and result in additional expenses.

Overstaying a visa can also impact your ability to change or adjust your immigration status while in the United States. If you overstay your authorized period, you may become ineligible for certain immigration benefits or pathways, making it harder to pursue opportunities such as working, studying, or obtaining a different type of visa.

It’s crucial to address any visa overstays promptly. If you realize that you have overstayed, it is advisable to consult with an immigration attorney or contact the appropriate immigration authority to discuss your options. They can provide guidance and assistance on how to rectify the situation and resolve any potential immigration issues.

Understanding the consequences of overstaying a tourist visa is essential to ensure compliance with U.S. immigration laws and to protect your future travel and immigration opportunities. Let’s now conclude this article by summarizing the key points discussed.

Consequences of Overstaying

Overstaying a tourist visa in the United States can result in various consequences, some of which can have long-lasting effects on your immigration status and future travel plans. It’s important to understand and be aware of the potential ramifications of overstaying to avoid any unnecessary difficulties or legal issues.

One major consequence of overstaying is the potential impact on future travel to the United States. When you overstay your authorized period, you violate U.S. immigration laws, which can result in a ban on re-entry. Depending on the duration of the overstay, you may be subjected to a three or ten-year bar from entering the country. This can significantly hinder your ability to visit the U.S. for tourism, business, or any other purposes.

In addition to travel restrictions, overstaying a visa can also have financial implications. For each day you exceed your authorized stay, you may be subjected to fines and penalties. These fines can accumulate quickly, resulting in a significant financial burden. Moreover, if you accrue a significant period of unlawful presence, you may be deemed inadmissible in the future, making it even more challenging to obtain a new visa or change your immigration status.

Overstaying can also impact your eligibility for certain immigration benefits and opportunities. If you overstay your visa, you may become ineligible for certain adjustment of status processes or other immigration benefits. This can limit your ability to pursue employment opportunities, attend educational programs, or apply for different visas in the future.

In some cases, overstaying can even lead to removal proceedings and deportation. If you are caught overstaying your visa, you may be subject to detention and removal from the United States. This can be an emotionally traumatizing experience and can have severe consequences on your future immigration endeavors.

It’s crucial to address any visa overstay issues promptly. If you have overstayed, it is advisable to consult with an immigration attorney or contact the appropriate immigration authority to discuss your options. They can provide guidance and assistance on how to rectify the situation and resolve any potential immigration issues.

Understanding the consequences of overstaying a tourist visa is paramount to ensure compliance with U.S. immigration laws and protect your immigration status in the future. It’s important to respect the authorized period on your visa or the Visa Waiver Program and take appropriate action within the designated time frame.

Now, let’s summarize the key points discussed in this article.

In conclusion, understanding the duration of stay on a tourist visa is essential for a smooth and enjoyable visit to the United States. Whether you are traveling on a traditional visa or under the Visa Waiver Program (VWP), it’s important to familiarize yourself with the regulations and limitations to ensure compliance with U.S. immigration laws.

A tourist visa grants individuals the opportunity to explore the wonders of the United States for a temporary period, typically up to six months. The duration of stay is determined by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officer at the port of entry. It’s important to respect the authorized period and seek an extension if needed.

The Visa Waiver Program (VWP) provides an alternative option for eligible individuals from specific countries to visit the U.S. for up to 90 days without obtaining a traditional visa. However, it’s crucial to adhere to the 90-day limit and avoid overstaying to avoid any legal consequences or future travel restrictions.

If you find yourself needing to extend your stay or change your status, it is possible to apply for an extension or a change of status with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). It’s important to understand the requirements and follow the correct procedures to ensure a valid and legal stay in the United States.

Overstaying a tourist visa or the authorized period under the Visa Waiver Program can have serious consequences, including travel restrictions, financial penalties, and potential inadmissibility in the future. It is crucial to address any visa overstays promptly and consult with an immigration attorney or the appropriate immigration authority for guidance and assistance.

By understanding the rules and regulations surrounding the duration of stay on a tourist visa, you can ensure a memorable and lawful visit to the United States. Remember to plan your trip accordingly, respect the authorized period, and seek appropriate extensions or changes of status as needed to enjoy your time in the U.S. without any legal complications.

“I just entered the US. I have a US visitor visa (B1/B2 visa) in my passport that is valid for 10 years. At the port of entry the immigration officer issued me an I-94 saying I was admitted for 6 months. How long can I stay in the US: 6 months or 10 years?”

Lack of knowledge or misunderstanding about the role of a “visa” and the “I-94” has been a major factor for many foreign nationals falling out of status in the United States. What is the difference between visa and I-94? Which one determines how long can you stay in the US – the I-94 card or visa?

US Visa Vs. Form I-94: An Overview

A US visa is a permit to seek entry into the US. The I-94 card gives you permission to enter and remain in the US. A visa allows you to appear at the US port of entry and seek entry into the country . The I-94 form is your actual admission ticket, telling you how long can you stay in the US during that visit, and what you can do while you are here.

Many foreign nationals are unaware that their authorized stay in the US is controlled by the I-94 record and not by their US visa. It is the I-94 record that says how long can you stay in the US , and in what status you were admitted. Incorrect interpretations of the dates on the I-94 record or visa could cause problems.

Check I-94 Arrival Departure Record Expiration Date

My Case Scenario Jae Yong

Jae Yong, a Korean Citizen who is a reporter for the Korean Times Newspaper, is being transferred to the US as a foreign correspondent for the paper. He will be stationed in Washington, DC and will be reporting on US politics. He is granted the I visa for journalists and media representatives. The visa is valid for 5 years. When he enters the US his I-94 is marked D/S for “duration of status.” This means that as long as Jae is working as a foreign correspondent for the Korea Times Newspaper he can stay in the US. There is no end date by which he is required to leave the US regardless of what the expiration of the visa is. Since his I visa is valid for 5 years, he is allowed to use the visa for 5 years to travel in and out of the US.

Let’s look at another example which highlights the difference between a US visa and the I-94 card:

A Citizen of China who wishes to enter the US as an H-1B professional cannot get an H-1B visa that is valid for more than 12 months. If a Chinese Citizen has an H-1B approval notice that is valid for 3 years, he or she can be admitted for the length of the approved petition, regardless of the expiration listed on the visa. This means that the individual must travel to the US within 12 months of being issued the visa. After entering the US he or she will be able to stay till the end date on the approval notice. He or she would only need to depart the US on or before the date specified in his or her I-94 form.

Now that we have a general overview of the Form I-94 and the visa let’s look at the specifics and the differences between visa and I-94.

1. What Is Form I-94?

The Form I-94, also known as the Arrival/Departure Record, serves as evidence that a nonimmigrant has entered the country legally. It indicates how long the nonimmigrant may stay in the US during that visit. It is the I-94 expiration date – and not the expiration date of the US visa – that controls how long a nonimmigrant may legally remain in the US.

REMEMBER Generally, a new I-94 record with a new date is issued each time a nonimmigrant legally enters the US.

2. I-94 – How Do You Get One?

When you enter the US as a nonimmigrant, a US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officer will examine your passport, visa, and may question you about the reason for your visit. If the CBP officer is satisfied that you qualify for the nonimmigrant classification you are seeking, and that you will abide by the US immigration rules, he or she will admit you into the US. The CBP officer will stamp your passport with the admission date, the class of admission, and the date that you are admitted until.

The procedure for securing the I-94 card will vary depending on whether you are arriving at an air, sea or land border port of entry.

3. Form I-94: What Does It Look Like

In order to qualify for an H1B, foreign nationals who have education from outside the U.S. must demonstrate that their education is ‘equivalent’ to a 4-year U.S. bachelor’s degree.

4. Form I-94 – What Is Its Purpose?

The Form I-94 serves as the arrival/departure record for foreign nationals admitted to the US as nonimmigrants. This document is created by US Immigration when the foreign national is inspected upon arrival at a US port of entry. The I-94 form indicates the date of arrival, status granted (i.e., F, J, H, L, etc.), and length of authorized stay. The I-94 is an official record of admission and permission to remain in the US.

IMPORTANT If a foreign national either needs to remain in the US for longer than the time granted, or decides to change the status and remain in the US beyond the I-94 expiration date, he or she must file an application for an extension of stay or a change of status with US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

5. What Is A Visa?

A visa is a stamp placed into the foreign national’s passport. It is issued by a US Embassy or Consulate, usually in the foreign national’s home country or country of residence. A US visa allows the foreign national to seek entry to the United States in a certain visa status within the time period (validity period) specified on the visa. A visa may allow one, two, or multiple entries before the expiration date of the visa.

6. Differences Between The Visa And The I-94

It is extremely important that you clearly understand the difference between a visa and the I-94. The major differences between visa and I-94 are as follows:

a. The I-94 record indicates how long a foreign national can stay in the US for that particular trip. Your stay in the US is not determined by the expiration date of your visa.

b. The visa is a permit allowing you to seek entry into the US. The I-94 card is a record of your entry showing that you have been inspected and admitted and indicating the expiration of your stay.

c. The I-94 record is created by a CBP Officer when a foreign national is inspected upon his arrival in the US, whereas a visa is issued by the US State Department and is obtained at a US Consulate outside the United States.

7. Applying For Extension of Stay When I-94 Is Expiring

If you want to stay longer than the date authorized by your I-94 card, you must apply for an extension of stay with the USCIS.

It is generally advisable to file for the extension request at least 30 days before the I-94 expiration date.

The decision to grant or deny a request for extension of stay is made solely in the discretion of the USCIS (you have no right to stay beyond the date on your I-94 card). In some cases, you may not be eligible to apply for an extension.

If the USCIS approves such an application, they will issue an approval notice, the bottom portion of which is a new I-94 form for the foreign national, reflecting the extended period of authorized stay.

IMPORTANT Foreign nationals who enter the US under the visa waiver program (VWP) are not entitled to change their status or extend their duration of stay in the US. They must depart within the 90-day period allowed for the visa waiver visitors. Moreover they may not simply travel to a contiguous country in order to exit and reenter for a “new” 90-day period. Proof that you are willing to obey US immigration laws and follow the dates on I-94 or visa appropriately (i.e., applying for an extension rather than just staying past your I-94 expiration date) will be important if you want to travel to the United States in the future.

8. Incorrect Information In Form I-94?

If you discover after entry that the I-94 was issued with an error, you should go, if possible to the port of entry where you entered, and if not possible, to the nearest CBP Deferred Inspection Office with proof of entry or admission and the I-94 record, and request a corrected I-94.

If the incorrect I-94 Arrival Departure Record was issued by USCIS you must contact USCIS.

IMPORTANT If the Immigration Officer at the local office is not convinced that the I-94 record was issued in error, he or she may advise you to file a Form I-102, Application for Replacement/Initial Nonimmigrant Arrival/ Departure Document. This is why it is so important to take the time to check your I-94 information for accuracy as soon as it is available. A quick check can save you several hours of frustration later in your trip.

Applying for a US visa is the first step in your journey to the US. Once you receive a US visa, you can travel to the United States and seek admission. However, the visa does not guarantee that you will be allowed to enter the United States. The CBP Officer at the US port of entry has the authority to grant or deny you admission into the US. The CBP Officer determines how long can you stay in the US. Incorrect interpretations of the dates on I-94 Arrival Departure Record or visa could cause serious problems.

Extend Your Stay

A request for an extension of stay (EOS) is generally filed on a Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker ( Form I-129 ) or Application to Extend/Change Nonimmigrant Status ( Form I-539 ), depending upon the nonimmigrant classification the petitioner or applicant seeks to extend. The instructions for  Form I-539  and  Form I-129  provide detailed information regarding who may file each form. Supplemental Information for Application to Extend/Change Nonimmigrant Status ( Form I-539A ) or Petition for a CNMI-Only Nonimmigrant Transitional Worker ( Form I-129CW ) may also be filed, where applicable. If you remain in the United States longer than authorized, you may be barred from returning and/or you may be removed (deported) from the United States. Check the date in the lower right-hand corner of your  Form I-94, Arrival-Departure Record , to determine the date your authorized stay expires. We recommend that you apply to extend your stay at least 45 days before your authorized stay expires.

You may apply to extend your stay if:

  • You were lawfully admitted into the United States with a nonimmigrant visa;
  • Your nonimmigrant visa status remains valid;
  • You have not committed any crimes that make you ineligible for a visa;
  • You have not violated the conditions of your admission; and
  • Your passport is valid and will remain valid for the duration of your stay.

You may not apply to extend your stay if you were admitted to the United States in the following categories:

  • Visa Waiver Program;
  • Crew member (D nonimmigrant visa);
  • In transit through the United States (C nonimmigrant visa);
  • In transit through the United States without a visa (TWOV);
  • Fiancé(e) of a U.S. citizen or dependent of a fiancé(e) (K nonimmigrant visa); or
  • Informant (and accompanying family) on terrorism or organized crime (S nonimmigrant visa).

Understanding the B1/B2 Visa 6 Month Rule: Stay Duration Explained for Multiple Entries

Learn about the b1/b2 visa 6 month rule and understand how it applies to your stay duration in the us. determine if it's per calendar year or per entry..

Understanding the B1/B2 Visa 6 Month Rule: Stay Duration Explained for Multiple Entries

Key Takeaways:

  • Understanding the B1/B2 visa is crucial as it allows multiple entries to the US, but not consecutive 10-year stays.
  • The standard stay limit per entry on a B1/B2 visa is six months, with no specific annual limit.
  • Staying within the limits, maintaining ties to your home country, and demonstrating temporary visits are essential for a hassle-free experience.

Navigating the B1/B2 Visa 6 Month Rule

Traveling to the United States is an exciting experience, but it’s important to understand the parameters of your visa. Many travelers find themselves holding a B1/B2 visa which allows for both business (B1) and tourism or medical treatment purposes (B2). One of the most common questions among B1/B2 visa holders is about the length of stay they are permitted in the US. This can sometimes be a source of confusion, but don’t worry—we’re here to clarify how the B1/B2 visa stay duration works.

Understanding the B1/B2 Visa 6 Month Rule: Stay Duration Explained for Multiple Entries

Understanding Your B1/B2 Visa

First things first, let’s establish what the B1/B2 visa is. This visa is typically issued for a period of 10 years, during which multiple entries to the US are allowed. But although your visa might be valid for a decade, it doesn’t mean you can remain in the US for ten straight years.

The Six-Month Stay Limit Per Entry

The visa grants you the ability to travel to the US, but border officials determine the duration of your permissible stay on each entry. The standard period of stay granted is six months. To clarify, this is per entry, not per calendar year. Each time you enter the US, the clock resets, and you are generally permitted to stay for another six-month period.

Cumulative Stay: Is There a Yearly Limit?

When it comes to the cumulative stay, things can become a little tricky. Officially, there’s no set “per year” limit; you’re allowed multiple six-month stays per year. However, frequent and prolonged stays might raise suspicions that you’re trying to live in the US, rather than just visit. This could lead to issues with border officials, including potentially being denied entry .

It’s essential to maintain ties to your home country and demonstrate that each visit has a temporary purpose. Authorities are particularly vigilant in ensuring that visitors are not attempting to circumvent the rules regarding residency and employment.

Re-Entry: Can You Return Immediately After a Six-Month Stay?

Technically, you are allowed to exit and re-enter the US immediately on a B1/B2 visa. But again, regularly doing so might suggest you’re trying to live in the US. Officials expect you to spend some time outside of the US to show you are not attempting to reside there.

Key Considerations for Multiple Entries

When planning multiple entries into the US on your B1/B2 visa, keep the following points in mind:

  • Purpose of Visit : Always be prepared to explain the purpose of your visit with evidence if possible. This could be business meetings, conferences, tourism activities, or medical appointments.
  • Proof of Ties : You should have proof of ties to your home country. This includes things like a job, property, family, or other responsibilities that ensure your return.
  • Financial Support : You’ll need to prove that you have the financial means to support your stay without the necessity to work in the US.

How to Track Your Stay Duration

Keeping track of the time you have spent in the US is crucial. Your I-94 Arrival/Departure Record is a vital tool in this respect. You can access your I-94 record online through the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) website. It provides the data on your arrival and departure, including the specific dates, which you should always check for accuracy.

Exceeding Your Stay Limit

If you happen to overstay your six-month limit, you could face serious consequences, including a visa cancelation or being barred from re-entry to the US for several years. It’s therefore critical to comply strictly with the terms of your visa.

In Conclusion

While the B1/B2 visa offers flexibility with a 10-year validity period and the opportunity for multiple entries, understanding the nuances relating to the six-month stay limit is key. Always remember that as a visitor, your stay in the US is temporary. The privilege to enter the country should not be taken lightly, and adherence to the rules will ensure a stress-free travel experience.

For more detailed and customized information, it’s highly recommended that you visit the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Consular Affairs website or consult with an immigration attorney .

Navigating the rules and regulations of the B1/B2 visa may seem daunting, but with the right information and responsible traveling practices, you can enjoy multiple fulfilling trips to the United States. Always keep your stay within the limits, maintain your ties back home, and be transparent about your intentions when entering the country. With these points in mind, you’ll be set for successful and enjoyable travels on your B1/B2 visa.

How long can we stay in USA with tourist visa

You are currently viewing How long can we stay in USA with tourist visa

  • Post author: Curbelo Law
  • Post published: April 24, 2024
  • Post category: Immigration

If you are wondering: How long can we stay in USA with tourist visa? You should know that overstaying your allowed time could bring you serious immigration consequences.

This is because the  B-2 tourist visa  is a temporary visa. Therefore, you will be able to stay in the country for a few months. However, staying to live with this visa carries the risk of being deported and facing other possible penalties. 

If you want to evaluate your chances of living in the U. S, don’t risk staying illegally. Call us, at Curbelo Law you will find the legal advice you need. 

Table of Contents

So, How Long Can We Really Stay In The USA With A Tourist Visa In 2024?

If you decide to stay in the United States on a tourist visa, you could face serious consequences. Authorities could deport you and even bar you from returning for several years. 

All of this is because the B-2 visa does not allow lawful permanent residence or working in the United States.

As if that were not enough, you could be detained until your trial in Immigration Court or until the day of your deportation. This applies to both those with a B-2 visa and those who entered with ESTA permission and exceeded the 90-day period.

How Can I Stay Legally In The USA If I Entered With A Tourist Visa?

As we mentioned, the tourist visa is temporary, so you will not be able to stay in the country. However, let’s say you entered with the intention of visiting the country, but during your stay, you fell in love or a job caught your eye.

If so, the first thing you will need to do is verify your  Green Card  eligibility through  adjustment of status . To do this, you will have to qualify for one of the following categories:

  • U. S. family-based immigration petition .
  • Work reasons.
  • Having been a victim of abuse or  human trafficking .
  • Some special category, such as religious workers ( R visa ) or  special immigrant juvenile status .

In general, if you fit into any of these classifications, you may be able to apply for lawful permanent residence.

What Is The Process To Obtain Residency If I Stayed On A Tourist Visa In The USA?

If you comply with the above, USCIS will be responsible for processing requests to change status from nonimmigrant to immigrant.

Therefore, to start your residency application, you must present the following documents:

  • Form I-485.
  • Form I-130 or I-140, depending on whether it is a family or employment petition.
  • Application I-730, if you will apply for refuge or asylum. 

The requirements to obtain the Green Card vary depending on the reason for the application. On the other hand, those who enter the U. S. through the visa waiver program generally cannot adjust their status.

How Long Does It Take To Adjust Status If I Stayed On A Tourist Visa In The United States?

If you changed your tourist status to another valid immigration status to apply for lawful permanent residence, the time to complete the adjustment of status will vary. 

It usually takes at least a year from the time the application is submitted. However, the length of the process depends on several factors, such as whether you have accumulated an unlawful presence in the country. 

Additionally, applications filed by American citizens are typically processed faster than those filed by lawful permanent residents.

It is essential to submit the application within the period of authorized stay in the country. Likewise, while you wait for the resolution, you will not be allowed to work. In some cases, it may be wise to return to your home country and apply for  consular processing .

Can I Really Change My Tourist Status In The United States?

It is possible to adjust your status from a  B-1  or B-2 visa to another type of visa while you are in the U. S. However, you must meet certain requirements. 

This process involves submitting a change of status request to USCIS. That being said, here are some key points to consider:

  • Purpose of stay:  You must demonstrate that your reason for staying in the United States matches the new type of visa you are applying for. For example, if you want to study, you can request a change to a  student visa (F-1) .
  • Timing:  You must apply before your current status expires, usually indicated on the I-94 arrival/departure record. USCIS recommends applying at least 45 days before your current status expires.
  • Eligibility:  Not everyone can change their status. For example, you typically cannot change your status if you entered the United States under ESTA.
  • Violation of status:  If you have violated the terms of your current status, such as working without authorization, you will not be able to change your status.
  • Approval:  Even if you meet all the conditions and apply, the final decision is up to USCIS.

What If I Married An American?

If you have recently married a U. S. citizen or lawful permanent resident, you may be able to apply for a Green Card by marriage. 

This allows you to remain in the United States and live with your spouse. It should be noted that you must first complete marriage-based Green Card interview questions .

For more information on the subject, consult with our lawyers. They will explain everything you need to know about the  K-1 fiancé(e) visa .

Reasons To Use The Tourist Visa In The USA

Some applications for the B-2 tourist visa in the USA include:

  • Visit with friends or family.
  • Medical treatment.
  • Participation in social events organized by fraternal, social or service organizations.
  • Participation in musical, sporting or other similar events or contests, without financial compensation.
  • Enrollment in short recreational courses of study, not intended to obtain credit toward an academic degree. For example, cooking classes during the holidays.

What Not To Do With The Tourist Visa In The USA

You cannot do the following with a tourist visa in the United States:

  • Secure long-term employment with an American company.
  • Perform paid performances or any professional activity before a paying audience.
  • Arriving as a crew member of a ship or plane

Canadian citizens generally do not require a visa to enter the United States for tourism purposes. However, they will need a suitable visa if they have specific plans, such as studying, working or moving to this country. Contact our TN visa lawyer for further information.

crimmigration

It is possible that aliens may be detained by immigration, especially if they commit an act that involves crimmigration . Paying an immigration bond  could grant the offender freedom to later face removal proceedings from the country.

Why Can’t I Work With A Tourist Visa?

The tourist visa is intended for tourism purposes only, so you cannot work or be employed by a U. S. employer. 

Therefore, if you are interested in working in the U. S, you should explore other  categories of American visas . For example, the  H-1B visa .

How Can I Find Out The Application Status Of My Tourist Visa?

Once your visa application is in process, you can check the status of the process  online  or by phone. To do this, you must use the application receipt number. 

To reschedule your interview appointment, we recommend that you review how to do so on the  portal of the embassy or consulate  where the appointment is scheduled. 

There, select the corresponding embassy or consulate from the list provided by the Department of State and follow the detailed instructions.

Steps To Know The Status Of A Tourist Visa

Tourist visa applications are handled by the United States Department of State. 

Therefore, if you have applied for a B-1 or B-2 visa, we recommend using the online visa status checker by following these steps:

  • Select the “NON IMMIGRANT VISA (NIV)” option.
  • Select your location.
  • Enter your case number or ID.
  • Enter your passport number.
  • Write the first 5 letters of your last name.
  • Fill in the characters that appear in the image.
  • Click the “Submit” button.

The Department of State does not guarantee the processing time of this application. Therefore, we advise you to be patient.

So, for how Long Can I Stay In The United States With A Tourist Visa?

staying illegaly on a tourist b-2 visa

Foreigners with a tourist visa in the United States have a maximum stay of 180 days or 6 months. Of course, immigration can establish a shorter time. 

If 6 months are granted, the stay can be enjoyed even if the consular interview indicates less time. It is important to respect the date indicated on the passport stamp and obtain Form I-94 for extended stays or land travel.

Can I Stay More Than 6 Months In The USA With A Visitor Visa?

A tourist can stay in the United States for more than 6 months with a B-2 visa, but it is necessary to complete a form to request an extension of stay.

What Happens If I Stay In The USA For 5 Months?

If you overstay your visa in the United States, you could face severe consequences, including deportation and a bar on re-entry. The most advisable thing is to comply with the time allowed.

What To Do If I Have Already Exceeded The Length Of Stay?

If you have already exceeded your stay time, we recommend you follow the following steps:

  • Contact our immigration attorneys immediately.
  • Determine eligibility for an extension period on your visa.
  • Comply with all immigration laws.
  • Be patient.

How Can I Request An Extension Of Stay Of My Tourist Visa In The United States?

You can request an extension of your stay while you are in the U. S. However, it must be before your authorized stay on your I-94 permit expires. 

It should be noted that not all individuals with a tourist visa qualify to apply for an extension of stay. Either way, you can  check with USCIS  or our attorneys to find out whether or not you can extend it. 

If you qualify for the extension, you can request it online or by mail using Form I-539, as long as you pay your fee.

Who Qualifies For An Extension Of Stay With A Tourist Visa?

National foreigners can request an extension of their stay in the United States if:

  • They were legally admitted to the U. S. on a nonimmigrant visa.
  • Your visa is currently valid.
  • They are still eligible for their visa category.
  • They have not committed any crime.
  • They have not violated the conditions of their admission.
  • Their passport is valid and will remain valid during your extended stay.
  • They have a valid and legitimate reason to extend their stay.
  • They have definite plans to leave at the end of the proposed visa extension period.
  • They have provided valid evidence of financial support.

Considerations On The Use Of The Tourist Visa In The United States

If you decide to visit the United States with a tourist visa, you must comply with certain obligations. For example, having this permit does not exempt you from a limit on your stay in the country.

extend stay with tourist visa

The length of your stay is determined by a Customs and Border Protection (CBP) immigration agent or inspector, regardless of the validity of your visa. 

Additionally, although you can obtain a tourist visa for up to 10 years to visit the U. S, the maximum stay allowed is 180 days or 6 months.

What Are The Consequences Of Exceeding The Time Limit Allowed In The United States?

If for any reason you remain in the country beyond the stipulated date, you could face serious consequences. These range from deportation to the definitive cancellation of your visa. Some of the sanctions include:

  • If you exceed one day or more, you could be considered under “unlawful presence,” which could limit your future procedures in the United States.
  • If it exceeds 180 days, you may be bared from entering the country for 3 years.
  • If it exceeds one year, the entry bar is extended to 10 years.

Additionally, your visa will be revoked, which will have a significant impact on any future applications to obtain it again.

In these cases, requesting a  waiver of inadmissibility could allow you to re-enter the country without having to wait years to do so.

How Many Times Can I Visit The United States In The Same Year?

There is no set rule that specifies the period of time one must remain outside the United States. 

Since each individual faces unique circumstances, there is no exact answer. However, certain aspects can help avoid inconveniences, these are:

  • Respect the purpose of the tourist visa, as it is for vacation purposes.
  • Maintain ties with your country of origin. For example, economic, work, family and so on.

Additionally, the decision whether or not to allow you to enter the country falls at the discretion of the immigration officer. If it is determined that you are inadmissible to enter the United States, you will be returned to your home country.

What Could Be The Consequences If The Officer Suspects That you Will Stay On The Tourist Visa In The United States?

The immigration officers have the power to decide whether to allow entry into the country. Furthermore, they could opt for immediate expulsion or voluntary departure.

In some scenarios, a second inspection may be required. Additionally, when applying to renew a tourist visa, the consulate or embassy may deny your application.

USA Ranks No. 1 On Index Of Top Countries For Tourism

The World Economic Forum (WEF) recently named the United States as 2023’s top country for tourism . 

Although it might surprise some, the source noted that America “retained its top spot.” Meanwhile, there were seven European countries listed in the top 10, and other countries in the mix were Japan, Australia, and China.

WEF’s Travel & Tourism Development Index created the criteria and ranked 119 countries. The rankings were based on 17 pillars, and, more specifically, 102 individual indicators. Some of the main pillars considered were a country’s health and hygiene, infrastructure, and safety and security . The index also looked at a nation’s resources, socioeconomic sustainability, labor availability, and transportation.

The index additionally analyzed a country’s openness to travel and tourism, travel and tourism’s prioritization, and the status of its competitive pricing. The report detailed that the competitive pricing pillar “measures how costly it is to travel or operate in a country.”

What Is The Current State Of Global Tourism? 

WEF predicts 2024 will see “pre-pandemic levels” of international tourist arrivals. 

Various portions of the index’s report outline the results by global regions. The source found that “Sub-Saharan Africa has seen the most movement [up the index] in its score since 2019.” However, the region’s score still ranked lowest in comparison to other global regions. Notably, the leading African country, South Africa , ranked 55th on the list.

Nineteen, of the index’s top 30 are in Europe, and seven are in the Asian Pacific. Out of that group, 26 of those countries are considered “high income.”

“These countries benefit from favorable business environments and labor markets, open travel policies, advanced technology adoption, excellent transport and tourism infrastructure, and rich natural, cultural, and non-leisure attractions,” noted WEF.

See the list of WEF’s 2024 Top 10 Countries for Tourism below.

Some Lloyds, Halifax and the Bank of Scotland customers will be charged more to use their overdrafts as of August. 

The three major banks, which are all part of Lloyds Banking Group, are set to launch a new tiered system for determining interest rates which could see some customers paying an extra 10%. 

At the moment, Lloyds has a standard rate of 39.9%, but the overhaul will see some forced to pay 49.9% for using their overdraft. 

The new rates are set to be: 

The 27.5% rate currently being offered to Club Lloyds customers will also be axed. 

There will be specific criteria for each tier based on a customer's credit information and account activity. 

For those who will see a rise, the banks will introduce a temporary tier for six months, which means the initial impact will be no more than 7.4% of what they are paying at the moment. 

"We are writing to our customers to let them know we're introducing new interest rate tiers on our overdrafts," a Lloyds Banking Group spokesperson said.

"The changes mean many will continue to pay the same or less than they do today, while some may see an increase." 

Nvidia has overtaken Apple to become the world's second most valuable public company.

The AI microchip maker's share price has risen to be worth more than $3trn (£2.34trn) for the first time. 

Only Microsoft is a more valuable company listed on a stock exchange, while Apple has fallen into third place.

Nvidia shares rose 5% after a year of growth - with one share now costing $1,224.40 (£957).

Nvidia's chips are powering much of the rush into AI, which has seen it become a poster child of the AI boom.

Demand for its processors from the likes of Google, Microsoft and Facebook owner Meta have been outstripping supply. 

Nvidia's shares - up nearly 150% so far this year - are also being boosted by an upcoming move to split its stock by 10-to-one on Friday. 

Ian Coatsworth, investment analyst at AJ Bell, said the stock split will "bring its share price down and make it more affordable to investors". 

Tech companies - including Microsoft and Apple - have been racing to develop AI and embed it in their products.

Nvidia is a younger company than some of its peers, having been founded in 1993. Similar to many tech giants, it was founded in California in the US.

Britain is less likely to lose power this winter than it was last year, according to the company that runs the grid.

National Grid's Electricity System Operator (ESO) said it expects power plants, wind farms and other generation methods to be able to provide more than enough power to meet demand this time around. 

In an early outlook, it said the grid would have an average margin - the difference between supply of electricity and demand for it - of 5.6 gigawatts (GW) this coming winter. 

This means the period when demand might outstrip supply is just 0.1 hours.

The increased margins are in part because of improved capacity, thanks to a new 765km high-voltage cable that connects the UK's electricity network with Denmark.

The cable, called an interconnector, is known as the Viking Link, and started transporting wind power between the two countries in December.

New gas generation, growth in battery storage capacity and increased generation connected to the distribution networks have also contributed to the higher margins. 

Despite this, ESO's chief operating officer Kayte O'Neill has said it will still need to be "vigilant" due to uncertainties around global energy markets.

"As a prudent system operator we remain vigilant, continuing to monitor potential risks and working closely with our partners to establish any actions necessary to build resilience," she said.

The continent's energy system has been forced to reinvent itself in recent years, faced with potential gas shortages due to the war in Ukraine.

The 20 countries using the euro currency have seen interest rates cut from record highs following progress in the battle against inflation over the past two-and-a-half years.

The Frankfurt-based European Central Bank (ECB) said it was "appropriate" to trim its main deposit rate from 4% to 3.75%.

It followed an assertion last month by its president, Christine Lagarde, that the pace of price increases was now "under control".

But the Bank declared in a statement that the battle was not won - signalling data-driven caution on future policy decisions in the months ahead.

Its staff even revised upwards their forecasts for inflation this year and next.

As we have been discussing in Money this week, the cut before the US and UK could weaken the euro - potentially making Britons' holiday money go further.

McVitie's is selling a new flavour of Jaffa Cake - and it marks the first ever non-fruit flavour since the treat launched in 1927.

Shelves across the country will soon be stocked cola bottle flavoured cakes.

The new flavour will launch in Asda stores from 10 June and be available in other UK supermarkets - including Tesco, Sainsbury's, Morrisons, Iceland and Co-op - in the coming weeks.

Adam Woolf, marketing director at McVitie's, said: "Jaffa Cakes Cola Bottle is certainly one of our more unexpected product launches – stepping away from fruit flavours for the very first time. 

"Jaffa Cakes have always stood out from the crowd (and the biscuit aisle), but we really wanted to try something new with this one. It's no doubt going to cause some debate among our Jaffanatics, and we can't wait to hear what they think."

By  Sarah Taaffe-Maguire , business reporter

Are we entering an era of interest rate cuts? Probably not. Or at least, not yet. 

But the European Central Bank (ECB) which controls the euro currency does look set to make their first cut in four years this afternoon. 

And Canada yesterday became the first country in the club of G7 industrialised nations to bring down borrowing costs by lowering their benchmark interest rate. 

The UK, however, isn't currently expected by markets to make a cut until September. 

Elsewhere, oil prices remain below $80 but are slightly more expensive than earlier this week. A barrel of the benchmark Brent crude oil costs $79.10.

The good news for people going on holidays to countries using the euro continues - the pound is still doing well against the currency with £1 equal to €1.1757. 

That could go even higher after the ECB decision at 1.15pm. A pound also can buy $1.2783. 

Like in the US, the UK's most valuable companies have become more valuable as the FTSE (Financial Times Stock Exchange) 100 and 250 indices are up 0.33% and 0.41% respectively.

Every Thursday  Savings Champion founder Anna Bowes  gives an insight into the savings market and how to make the most of your money...

Can you believe we are almost halfway through 2024?

Although the rate rises that we have seen this year have slowed compared with the previous couple of years, and we have even seen some falls, savers are now able to find hundreds of savings accounts that pay an interest rate higher than inflation.

The latest data from the Office for National Statistics showed inflation was still higher than predicted, however - which means the anticipated base rate cut is likely to be pushed back again – into the second half of this year.

While bad news for borrowers, this is great news for savers.

Incredibly, the latest statistics from the Bank of England show there is over £253bn sitting in current accounts and savings accounts earning no interest at all.

With top rates available paying 5% or even a bit more, that is potentially £12.65bn of gross interest that is not being claimed by savers.

So now really is the time to move your money if you have cash languishing, earning less than inflation, especially if you can lock some away with a fixed rate, as a base rate cut will happen at some stage, we just don't know when.

Easy access

If you think you'll need access to your money, an easy access account is a wise choice.

The base rate cuts that we have been waiting for are yet to start, so the top rates on offer are still paying almost as much as they were at the beginning of the year.

Fixed-term bonds 

There is a strange phenomenon with fixed-term bond rates at the moment: the longer you tie up your cash, the lower the interest rates on offer.

Normally, you'd expect to be rewarded for tying up your cash over the longer term - but base rate forecasts have flipped this.

Fixed-term cash ISAs

A frequent complaint that I hear from savers is that the tax-free rates on ISAs are usually lower than the pre-tax rates on the equivalent non-ISA accounts – and this is particularly true with fixed-term accounts.

As many more savers are paying tax on their interest once again, cash ISAs are more popular than ever, as the tax-free rate of the ISA can still be considerably more than the interest earned after tax has been deducted on the non-ISA bond equivalents.

The renowned "50 Best" list of the world's best restaurants was revealed in Las Vegas last night - with a new restaurant taking top spot.

Disfrutar in Barcelona took the crown from Central in Lima, Peru (previous winners are ineligible and instead join a Best of the Best list).

Eating the standard menu costs £247 (€290) - with an extra £136 (€160) if you want the wine pairing.

To be fair, you do get around 30 courses.

They also offer a unique menu for your table for between €1,050 and €390 per person - the more people, the less it costs.

The 50 Best list says: "The combination of brilliantly imaginative dishes, unsurpassed technical mastery and playful presentation results in the dining experience of a lifetime, as full of surprises as it is memories."

Dishes include:

  • Caviar-filled Panchino doughnut
  • Frozen gazpacho sandwich
  • Thai-style cuttlefish with coconut multi-spherical
  • Squab with kombu spaghetti, almond and grape

Two UK restaurants made the top 50 but the UK was eclipsed by countries from across South America as well as Thailand, Italy, France and Spain.

London's Kol moved up slightly to 17, while Ikoyi, which we reported on a few weeks ago following a link-up with Uber Eats, came it at 42.

Three whiskies created by Aldi have been named among the best in the world.

The budget supermarket took home three golds at the International Spirits Challenge awards for: 

  • Glen Marnoch Highland Single Scotch Whisky (£18.49, 70cl)
  • Highland Earl Blended Scotch Whisky (£16.89, 1L)
  • Samuel Joe’s Straight Kentucky Bourbon (£14.99, 70cl)

In the single malt category, Aldi's submission beat the likes of M&S as well as premium brand Lochlea Distillery, which costs around £45 a bottle. 

Other gold winners included Johnnie Walker, Jameson and Glenfiddich. 

Aldi was also given three silver medals for its Highland Black Blended Scotch Whisky, Glen Marnoch Speyside Single Malt Whisky and Glen Marnoch Islay Single Malt Whisky. 

"This industry recognition helps to prove that great quality doesn't have to come with a luxury price tag and customers can be confident they're saving money with us, whilst getting the best whisky taste and experience," said Julie Ashfield, managing director of buying at Aldi UK. 

As we've previously discussed in the Money blog, holidaying Brits can avoid costly roaming charges by using their own travel eSim - and there's now another mainstream option to choose from courtesy of Uswitch.

UK travellers who want to use their phones abroad usually rely on their roaming plans and data passes or sign up for a local SIM at their destination, which can often require time-consuming ID checks and additional documentation.

That can be costly. 

Since Brexit, the UK no longer benefits from several EU-mandated rules, including a worldwide data roaming cap of £45.

Roaming costs, especially in countries outside the EU, can now be as high as £9 for every 1MB of roaming data - equivalent to streaming Netflix for 14.4 seconds.

The savings with eSims are potentially massive, as our cost of living specialist Megan Harwood-Baynes outlined here last month...

USwitch product

Using 10GB of data in Morocco on a UK Pay As You Go network with uncapped fees would cost on average of £56,166, compared to just £17 with a USwitch eSim.

eSims are available online and are entirely digital - meaning customers don't need to visit a phone network store or wait for a physical SIM card to arrive in the post.

Most new smartphones are already compatible with eSim technology, including every iPhone released from 2018 onwards and most Samsung devices released from 2020 onwards.

"eSIMs offer them a newfound freedom that's cheaper than traditional data roaming and with none of the hassle of finding a local SIM card provider when you arrive," said CEO and co-founder of (USwitch's partner in this project) eSIM Go Zacchary Couldrick.

Donald Trump found guilty: Will he go to prison? What to know ahead of sentencing

Donald Trump is the first former president convicted of a crime and now he could be the first one sent to jail or prison.

Trump was found guilty of 34 felony counts of falsifying business records, opening up the possibility that he could be incarcerated .

Not only is Trump the first former president be convicted of a crime, he is also the presumptive Republican nominee lined up for a likely rematch with President Joe Biden in November.

Even though jail time is on the table for his conviction, he is expected to appeal the jury's decision. Legal experts told USA TODAY any jail or prison sentence likely won't take effect until after his appeal plays out, pushing it past the November election.

Here is what to know about a possible incarceration sentence:

Live updates: Former President Donald Trump found guilty on all counts in NY criminal hush money case

Can Trump go to prison?

Yes. Each felony count of falsifying business records − elevated to a felony because prosecutors proved the purpose was to commit or conceal another crime − carries a maximum sentence of four years. However, New York caps such sentencing the type of felonies Trump faced – Class E felonies –  at 20 years .

Some New York litigators and legal experts told USA TODAY that Trump is likely to face only probation.

"With a defendant who has no prior criminal record, my absolute expectation would be a sentence of probation," Mitchell Epner, a New York litigator with decades of experience, said ahead of the trial.

Others said jail or prison time is very much on the table, but likely under four years and potentially limited to months.

Norman Eisen, a Brookings Institution senior fellow who served as special counsel to the House Judiciary Committee during Trump's first impeachment, co-authored a report looking at sentencing for other defendants with no criminal history who were convicted of falsifying business records in New York.

Eisen noted one construction executive was sentenced in 2015 to spend two days per week in jail for a year for falsifying records to hide payments in a bribery scheme. In 2013, two corporate executives were sentenced to between four and six months of jail time for falsifying records to misclassify their salaries as expenses under their employer's larger bribery and fraud scheme.

"This is a case that does not involve any physical violence, and it doesn't – there's not sort of a 'named victim,' so to speak – and so the court is going to take that into consideration," Anna Cominsky, who directs the Criminal Defense Clinic at New York Law School, told USA TODAY.

Cominsky added, however, that it will "be very dependent on – and also very interesting to see – what the prosecutor asks for."

At a press conference following the verdict, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg declined to preview what he will recommend to the judge.

Experts weigh in: If Trump is found guilty, will Americans still be able to vote for him?

When will Trump be sentenced?

Judge Juan Merchan will issue Trump's sentence in a July 11 hearing. Merchan instructed Trump's defense team to file any post-conviction motions by June 13, and told the prosecution to respond by June 27. Those filings could include arguments from both sides about Trump's sentence.

Defendants are sometimes "remanded" pending sentencing, or kept in custody while they wait for their sentence.

But legal experts told USA TODAY that is unlikely in this case.

Can Trump bring the Secret Service to jail?

Even before the conviction, logistical questions about Trump going to jail came up when he repeatedly violated a gag order restricting his public comments on witnesses and jurors.

Among those questions is how the Secret Service will continue to work with Trump. He receives around-the-clock protection as a former president, which no judge has previously had to consider in a sentencing.

"If I were the judge − and I don't know what a judge would do in this case − I would reject out of hand the concept that because he was once president, and because as a matter of policy the Secret Service guards former presidents, that therefore he can't go to jail," said John Moscow, a New York lawyer who spent 30 years in the Manhattan District Attorney's Office.

Moscow told USA TODAY ahead of the trial that the judge could get creative – for example, order the former president to stay in a hotel wing or military base.

Merchan previously threatened to jail Trump if he continued to violate a gag order in the case, even as the judge acknowledged concerns about Trump's Secret Service protection.

"There are many reasons why incarceration is truly a last resort," Merchan said on May 6 of the trial . While he said he didn't want to jail Trump over the gag order, he would "if necessary and appropriate."
