B1 Visa Application for HR Manager

B1 Visa Application for HR Manager

Hi,

I am employed in my current company as a HR Manager. MY company has overseas branches. I occasionally visit my consultants for counseling and dispute settlements etc. in Singapore.

Now my employer has asked me to come to US and meet our employees over there. My trip is scheduled for 2 weeks. I will be meeting individual employees and will be travelling to 8 different locations in US to meet individual candidates.

I have a Bachelor degree in commerce and working in the current company for more than 2 years. I have an overall 5 years of experience.

My questions :

Will i be able to apply for a B1 visa?

what are the things i need to keep in mind while applying?

Should I apply for some other visa for my travel?

Will my non-technical background pose any hurdle in getting a H1B?

Why not search or ask these questions on the State Department's website? That way, you are getting firsthand (hopefully truthful) advice.

Thank you for your suggestion bk_t1,

I believe the link is for US citizens traveling to other countries and not a Indian citizen traveling to US.

Incorrect, both are covered. See the section: Visas (Foreign Citizens) for your situation.
