Procedures for Entering the United States
A visa is a document that allows a foreign citizen to travel to the United States and ask for permission to enter. However, having a visa doesn’t guarantee entry. The Department of Homeland Security and Customs and Border Protection officers at the airport have the power to decide if you can enter or not. If you’re allowed in, they’ll give you a stamp or a paper form as proof. You can find more information about entry requirements, restrictions on bringing certain items, and other details on the CBP website.
