Default Business Visa as Tourist Visa

Two yrs back my friend for a B1 visa thru his company and got the visa from the consulate for 10yrs. He never came to the US and left the sponsoring company and moved to Australia, the question is , Can he enter the US using his existing visa for tourism purpose ? or does he have to apply for a new one ?
I would greatly appreciate any help on this...

Thanks

Hi,

Couple of things he need to check.

1) Annotation on the visa i.e the name of the company sponsoring the visa or its blank.

2) Is it B1, B2 or B1/B2

B1 is for business where as B2 is for Visiting. B1/B2 allows both.

Cheers,
Rayoflight

P.S Please contact an attorney for legal opinion as I am just sharing the knowledge what I read online.

You are welcome. One more thing if its only B1 he cannot come in as B2 (Tourist Visa). Hope this helps. Cheers, Rayoflight

Wait there is one more thing he needs to check if it single entry or multiple entry.

Entries: S (Single) or M (Multiple)

Since its a 10 Yr Visa it would be a M entry but no harm in double checking it right.
