|The D nonimmigrant visa category is reserved for crewmen. Crewmen are individuals who are serving in good faith and assisting in the normal operations of a vessel or craft. Such nonimmigrant visa classification will include persons who are employed on the vessel, by owners of the vessel or by sub-contractors on the vessel. For example, individuals working as musicians, cooks, waiters, or mechanics on the vessel may be classified as D nonimmigrants.|
As with the C nonimmigrant visa classification, the D nonimmigrant visa category is not likely to be one that is often encountered.
The regulations for this nonimmigrant visa category may be found at 8 CFR Sec. 214.2(d).
