About the A-1 Visa - What is it and who is eligible?
One of the most popular forms of nonimmigrant visas includes those known as A-1 visa. This is a diplomatic visa which allows those who are considered to be foreign officers who are visiting the country on official duties. There are several people who are eligible to apply for this type of visa; these people include the following:
- Officers of permanent diplomatic missions;
- Those in consular posts (ex: ambassadors);
- Those visiting high-level foreign officers;
- Foreign state representatives; and
- Family members of A-1 visa holders
The Benefits of the A-1 Visa
Should you successfully obtain this visa, you as a holder will be able to travel throughout the country and outside of the boundaries, and will enjoy a fast processing of the visa as it is often needed on a short timeline. While holding one of these visas, you will also not be able to be criminally charged during your visit for any state or federal law - this, however, will not be held strong should it be determined that you entered into the country for the sole reasoning of committing a criminal offense.
