If you are traveling to the United States for business for a short period of time, you may be eligible for a B-1 visa. There is a list of specific business activities permitted to be performed under the B-1 visa. Such activities include, but are not limited to: negotiating contracts, consulting with business associates, etc. You will bear the burden of proving that you have a valid reason to visit the United States to engage in lawful business activity for a specific duration of time. You will also bear the burden of proving that you have significant ties to your home country, that you will not be paid by the U.S. company, and that you intend to return after concluding your business.
