A citizen of a foreign country generally must possess a valid visa in order to enter the United States. Nonimmigrant visa is the term for a visa which allows temporary stay in the United States. There are many types of nonimmigrant visas, each which allows a person to travel to, enter, and remain in the United States for a specific purpose and usually a specified period of time.
Holding a valid visa is not a guarantee of admission into the United States. The final admission is made at the port of entry by a U.S. Customs and Border Protection officer.
