Travelers passing through the United States don't need to be trapped in the airport. The C-1 Visa, also known as the transit visa, allows travelers to leave the airport and visit family or friends or partake in tourist or shopping ventures. While you are required to leave the U.S. on your departing flight, you are able to spend your waiting time enjoying your surroundings.
