If you work onboard a commercial sea vessel or an international airline in the United States and you need to enter the U.S. temporarily for up to 29 consecutive days, you will need to apply for and obtain a U.S. Crewmember visa (D visa). Common jobs: pilot or flight attendant on a commercial airplane; captain, engineer, or deckhand on a sea vessel; lifeguard, cook, waiter, beautician, or other service staff on a cruise ship; trainee on board a training vessel.
If you first need to travel to the United States in order to join the vessel you will work on, in addition to a Crewmember (D) visa, you also need a Transit (C1) visa – so you should usually get a combination C1/D visa.
The U.S. Crewmember visa requirements are easily understandable. However, further documents to be submitted depend on your personal situation and can vary on a case-to-case basis. Incomplete information, insufficient evidence, and legal obstacles often lead to long processing times, and even visa rejection.

Unless canceled or revoked, a visa is valid until its expiration date. If you have a valid visa in your expired passport, do not remove it from your expired passport. You may use your valid visa in your expired passport along with a new valid passport for travel and admission to the United States.
