United States Transit Visa (C1 Visa)

Select your Language


C1 Transit Visa General Information: The C1 Transit Visa is a nonimmigrant visa which allows foreign nationals to enter into the United States while transiting to another foreign country. The C1 Transit Visa can be used to travel in and out of the United States when your final destination is another country. Individuals with a valid B1 Business or B2 Tourist Visa do not need to obtain a US Transit Visa. Any other valid nonimmigrant visa may not be used to transit through the United States. Individuals from Visa Waiver countries do not need to obtain a C1 Transit Visa. The Transit Without Visa (TWOV) program and International-to-International (ITI) program were both suspended by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Department of State on August 2nd, 2003.

C1 Transit Visa Eligibility Requirements: Most foreign nationals traveling through the United States to another foreign destination are eligible for a C1 Transit Visa. C1 Transit Visa holders may stay for a maximum of 29 days in the United States. C1 Transit Visa holders are required to leave the United States on the proposed flight or ship of departure, or within 29 days, whichever is earlier. Some applicants may be required to apply for a B1 Business Visa or a B2 Tourist Visa in order to visit the United States. Travelers from countries with a passport from a Visa Waiver Country do not need to obtain a transit visa. Additional information can be found in the C1 Transit Visa application guide.
