B1/B2, Business and Tourist Visa
Both the B1 and the B2 visas are temporary, nonimmigrant visas. A B1 visa will allow the holder to visit the US to work on some business-related project. A B2 visa is basically a tourist visa and allows the holder to travel to and within the US for a pretty broad range of tourist activities.
Sometimes, a visa will be issued as a B1/B2. This just means that it is both for business and for pleasure. A lot of times when a foreign national enters the US for a work-related project, they will also want to do some tourism, and this combination visa will allow that flexibility.
The Applicant must prove that it has reasons to return to its home country on or prior to the I-94 expiration date. The Applicant will have to show proof that it has a home, a job, bank funds, property, family, etc.. The process usually involves a face-to-face interview at the American consulate in your country of origin.
