Can I permanently settle in the USA on a visitor visa?

You could get into the country on a visitor visa, but if you plan on staying long-term then you should be prepared to look at other visa options. 

Remember, visa applications focus on intent. And the intent of a visitor visa is to stay in the country short-term for things such as:

  • Vacation
  • Medical treatment
  • Tourism
  • Visiting family or friends

The visa is only good up until the date on the admission stamp.

If you want to learn more about long-term or permanent options, then you should consult an immigration attorney. LawTrades would be happy to connect you with an experienced immigration lawyer that can help you identify the best options for your situation.
