What is a Non-Immigrant Temporary Visa?

A non-immigrant is classified as someone who legally enters the U.S. on a temporary basis. A temporary visa allows a non-immigrant to stay in America for a specific length of time. After their time is up, they must leave the country.

An example of a non-immigrant would be a tourist, a business visitor, someone seeking medical treatment, a fiancée of an American citizen, an international student or an athlete from an international league, who is participating in a sporting competition.
