Corporate Visa ProgramOn this page:
The Corporate Visa Program (CVP) vets and registers established, reputable firms to make it easier for certain employees to seek nonimmigrant visitor visas for business travel at reserved appointment times. The CVP highlights the United States’ commitment to promoting trade and economic engagement with Jordan and provides time-saving benefits for its members. CVP members are qualifying firms whose employees travel to the United States for business purposes. Participating companies, identifying themselves with a custom travel letter, receive faster interviews, expedited processing, and a dedicated e-mail address for inquiries. Companies also schedule online visa application appointments in a reserved appointment block for CVP members only.
Firms lawfully operating within Jordan are eligible to join the Corporate Business Program (CVP), regardless of the firm's ultimate nationality. Eligible firms may include for-profit corporations, universities, NGOs, news media and international organizations. Participation is restricted to large firms that send a significant number of official travelers to the United States. Participating companies are asked to show on a yearly basis that their travelers have complied with U.S. visa law.
No specific U.S. event or invitation is needed for CVP travel. However, CVP firms are encouraged to plan ahead and seek visas in advance for employees who may have a future or indeterminate need to travel.
CVP applicants include professional, permanent, full-time employees of registered firms. Casual, temporary, part-time or contract staff are ineligible. CVP registered firms may not submit visa applications for clients, business associates, customers, domestic servants, friends, or other relatives, who must apply in the normal manner by making an appointment online.
