In America the visa process is federally regulated i.e. visas for states are not issued and there is no states immigration, rather visas are issued for entry onto American territory under a given USA immigration status.
The B-1 business visitor visa allows you to enter the United States to attend business meetings or conferences, engage in buying or selling, oversee contracts on behalf of your foreign (non U.S) employer, or participate in other business ventures.
There are various other uses for the B-1 visa.
Tourism and Travel US Visitor Visa
The B-2 visa is predominantly for bona fide tourists.
E3 Australian Employment Professional Visa
This is a visa category recently created by the US government to allow Australian professionals to work in the US.
Qualified Australian professionals have access to a dedicated visa, which is easier and cheaper to obtain than the traditional H-1B Professional Workers Visa. The E-3 visa is available to those in “specialty occupations”. This is expected to assist Australian companies with US operations and Australian professionals including those in financial services, banking, accounting, information technology, law, engineering and medicine to work in the United States.
Unlike H-1B visas, the spouses of those holding E-3 visas are able to apply for permission to work in the U.S.
H-2B Temporary Worker Visas
The H-2B visa category is used by U.S. companies temporarily to employ skilled or unskilled foreign nationals in nonagricultural positions for which the employer has a temporary need and for which qualified U.S. workers are unavailable. The company must intend to employ the foreign nationals for a temporary period and the employer's need for the skills possessed by the foreign nationals must also be temporary.
P Athletes and Performing Artists Visa
The P categories, P-1, P-2 and P-3, are reserved for those persons who will be coming to the US to perform in athletics or entertainment, and who do not meet the extraordinary ability standard required for classification in the O category.
R1 Religious Worker Visas
This visa allows ministers of religion and religious workers employed by religious, non-profit organizations to work for related organizations in the United States.
