Hawaii Visas

If you are not from the U.S. and want to come to Hawaii, you will almost certainly need to get a visa. Federal law covers visas for all states. If you don't know the process, it can seem difficult. If you get it wrong, you may not get your visa. Advice from a legal pro can help you apply for a visa in the correct way. 

Types of Visas

There are two types of visas for the U.S.: temporary visas, which allow you to travel in the country and immigrant visas, or green cards, which allow you to come to the country to live.

If you are planning to study or conduct business, you will need a temporary visa. If you want to live and work in the U.S., or join a family member already here, you will need a green card. The process for getting a green card is more complex. You will need to be careful when filling out forms.

Things That Could Delay the Visa Process

If you follow the rules, applying for a visa to come to Hawaii may not be a problem. But a number of issues can delay the visa process:

  • Forms filled out incorrectly
  • Applying for the wrong type of visa
  • Ignoring waiting times and not paying the right fees
  • Companies that scam you

A visa attorney can ensure you are doing things properly and can help you get your visa in time.
