B-1 visa, this visa is issued to those seeking entry for business purposes.
B-2 visa is issued to those seeking entry for tourism or other non-business purposes. But actually these two visas are issued by combining them together and issued as a “B1/B2 visa” valid for a temporary visit for either business or pleasure, or a combination of the two.
