Visitors to the United States need to check the entry requirements specific to their country of origin before embarking on their trip. The United States requires many tourists to obtain a visa before they are allowed into the country. Those seeking to visit the U.S. only temporarily need a non-immigrant visa. The specific type of non-immigrant visa you need depends on the purpose of your visit, according to Travel.State.Gov.
