Do you really understand what visa is?
The purpose of your intended travel and other facts will determine what type of visa is required under U.S. immigration law. There are two types of visa: nonimmigrant visa, and immigrant visa.
Nonimmigrant visa is very common such as F-1, H1B, O1, P1, B1/B2, L1, J1, G1-G5 etc. Although there are a lot of more, most of the foreign nationals’ visas fall on those and are certainly very familiar with those.
But what is immigrant visa? An immigrant visa is issued to a foreign national who intends to live and work permanently in the United States, which is exactly what we usually call a Green Card (Nonimmigrant Visa= F-1, H1B, O1, P1, B1/B2, L1, J1, G1-G5 etc. ; Immigration Visa=Green Card).
