What is a U.S. Transit Visa?

Transit visas are issued for people travelling through the U.S. on a short layover on the way to another country, or for crew members travelling as passengers to join the aircraft or vessel they will be working on. Even if you need to enter a U.S. airport for half an hour, you will need to obtain a transit visa prior to travelling to the U.S.

The standard requirements for a transit visa are relatively simple. However, most people realise they need to get a U.S. transit visa just shortly before their flight. Transit visa requests may face substantial delays because of incomplete data provided, long waiting lines in certain countries, or interview mishaps. Having a dedicated travel & immigration consultant by your side can streamline your visa journey and speed up the steps.

Conditions for a U.S. Transit Visa

If you requested a transit visa, you will need to:

  • Have a valid passport. The validity end date should be at least 6 months after your intended period of stay.
  • Intend to enter the U.S. temporarily for transit travel.
  • Have a common carrier ticket or transportation arrangements to your onward destination, no more than 29 days after your intended date of entry in the U.S.
  • Have permission to enter another country upon departure from the U.S. (i.e., a visa, entry permit or waiver).
  • Have at your disposal enough funds to cover your travel, accommodation, and other expenses while in the U.S.
  • Have a copy of your current employment contract (if travelling to join a ship crew).
