Types of Visas

A visa is a document showing that a person is authorized to enter or leave a country for which it was issued. The authorization may be a separate document, or more commonly, a stamp endorsed in the applicant's passport. Some countries do not require a visa where a treaty is in place. If you are in need of an immigration attorney, we can refer a licensed attorney to you.
