B-1 Visitor Visas with 6-Month Validity

July 5, 2012

Given the recent trends of US Citizens getting only 6 months’ validity for their business visitor visas to visit India, the U.S. Embassy in New Delhi, advised that U.S. consulates may issue six-month B-1 visas to Indian citizens wanting to visit US for business purposes.  This is part of the reciprocity.  It is not clear why the India Embassy/Consulates in the U.S. started issuing business visitor visas to US Citizens with only a six-month validity as opposed to 5 to 10 years, which has been an established practice.
