I visited the U.S. a few years ago for training on a B1/B2 visa. Now, I want to visit the U.S. again. My B1/B2 is valid until 2020. Can I travel to the U.S. on my existing B1/B2 visa?


As long as your B-1/B-2 visa is valid, you may use it to travel to a port of entry into the United States for tourism and business purposes. The final determination of your entry to the United States and how long you may stay will be made by immigration officials at the port of entry.
