Visa - Entry and duration period
 
Visas can be for multiple entries into the host country or for a single-entry.
 
Single Entry Visa - means the visa is for a single entry and canceled as soon you leaves the said country
 
Double-entry, or multiple-entry Visa’s which permits you double or multiple entries into the host country or territory with the same visa.
 
Some countries sometimes also issue re-entry permits. A re-entry permit allows you to temporarily leave the country without invalidating your current visa.
 
In most cases a business visa will normally not allow you to engage in working in the host country without an additional obtained work permit.
 
For some countries, the authorized period of stay of a visa is not the same as the validity of the visa.
For example, when a visa has been issued to start at April 1 and to expire on July 1, and the authorized period of stay is 90 days, then the 90-day authorized stay begins when you enter the country (the entrance must be between April 1 and July 1). Thus, the latest day you could stay in the country is maximum 90 days from the date you entered the country within the validity period of April 1 to July 1. So if you enter the country on May 1 you can not stay the maximum authorized 90 days since you have to leave the country on July 1.
 
Even when you have a visa, this does not guarantee you that you may entry the host country. The immigration at the border crossing will make the final determination to allow you to enter or not. They can even cancel your visa at the border if you ar not able to demonstrate to their satisfaction that you will abide by the status the visa granted to you.
