Business Visitor Visa - Quickest, Easiest and Cheapest Visas

If your intention is merely to “do business” in the United States or Canada, that is to say, you do not plan to do any “hands-on” work, then your first and best option is a business visitor visa.

As a business visitor to the U.S. or Canada you can attend meetings, sign contracts, inspect facilities, review budgets and financial statements, attend conferences, participate as a director in corporate board meetings, attend trade shows, make purchases of goods and services, and travel freely throughout the country, usually for up to six months without applying to any consulate but merely presenting your passport at the border when traveling to the U.S. or Canada.

While you can do all these things, you cannot do “hands-on” work. So, for example, you cannot answer phones, type letters, handle customer complaints, make retail sales, etc., like an employee of a company would.
