Q:

What is a "multiple entry visa"?

A:

A multiple entry visa is a type of endorsement on a visitor's passport. It allows a person to travel to a United States port of entry and request permission to enter the United States an unlimited number of times while the visa is still valid, according to the State Department.

Visitors visas, coded as B1 for business visitors and B2 for tourists by the State Department, indicate the number of entries permitted. This is done by showing on the visa the number of entries allowed or by the letter "M" for multiple entries. It's the Custom and Borders Protection inspectors' duty, under the authority of the Department of Homeland Security, to review admission of travelers.

    How do you write a letter to support a visa application?

    A:

    A letter in support of a visa application should be addressed to the consulate or embassy in the potential visitor's country, stating the supporter's relationship to the applicant and the reason for the visit, as explained by USA Today. A letter of support can be written for anyone, but the more loose the relationship, the more important it is to justify the visit, as stated on immihelp.com.
