New Jersey A-1 Temporary Visa Attorney

Establishing Non-Immigrant Access into the United States

There are a great many ways to enter into the United States to accomplish a specific task. The Department of Homeland Security calls these, “non-immigrant visas” (NIVs), as they serve a temporary purpose and do not refer to an individual looking to live in the United States permanently.

One of the reservations, in fact the first reservation, the U.S government has made is for foreign ambassadors or diplomats to enter the country with an A-1 visa to perform relevant visas.

In order to be eligible for an A-1 visa, you must be one of the following:

  • Ambassador
  • Public Minister
  • Career Diplomat
  • Consular Officer
  • Immediate family of one of the above

This reservation serves the purpose of welcoming foreign diplomacy and encouraging international welfare. A-1 visas for diplomats and specialty officials like them come with several perks, as well.

Conditions of an A-1 Visa

If you are an official representative entering the United States on behalf of your country and to perform specific duties, there are a number of ancillary benefits to this arrangement.

A-1 Visa holders enjoy the following:

  • The visa can be renewed to extend the stay
  • The visa for immediate family members can also be renewed
  • A-1 visa status can eventually convert into a green card, later citizenship
  • Numerous diplomatic immunities, exemptions, privileges, and rights

Section 12 of 1957’s Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) established a number of possible ways that an A-1 visa holder could become a green card holder and candidate for citizenship. Mostly, the United States government will just want to know that you are an individual of good moral character, your admission into the United States wouldn’t jeopardize the country, or that there’s a good reason why you can’t return back to your home country. With the right lawyer, these points are usually provable in immigration court.

Common Questions

  • Q:How is a personal injury claim different from a personal injury lawsuit?

    A:Many victims are unsure what legal actions they should take to pursue fair compensation for their injuries. If you wish to hold the person responsible for your injuries liable, it is important to know the differences between a claim and a lawsuit.

  • Q:What is negligence?

    A:Negligence is one of the key aspects of any personal injury case. Negligence occurs when a person or party does not act with the proper amount of care and caution that a reasonable person would use to prevent harm or injury to another individual, or when the person or party does something harmful that a careful and reasonable person would not have done in a similar situation.

  • Q:How important is negligence to my case?

    A:Negligence is perhaps the most integral factor in an injury claim or lawsuit, and in order to fight for justice against the liable party (also called the defendant), you must first be able to prove their negligence and that it is the direct cause of your injuries.
