D-Visas are nonimmigrant visas for Crewmembers working on board of sea vessels or international airlines in the United States, providing services required for normal operation. Of course, the Crewmembers must intend to depart the United States on the same vessel or any other vessel within 29 days.
On the other hand, if someone travels to the United States to join a Vessel, which he/she will work on, in addition to a crewmember D Visa, she/he also must obtain a C-1 Transit Visa or a combination C-1/D visa.
