The holders of such a visa are considered "geographically restricted nonimmigrants".
The travel area for recipients of a C-2 visa is limited to a 25-mile radius of "Columbus Circle, which is "New York City's equivalent of the "zero mile marker — the area of this circle is known in the "U.S. Code, Title 22 as the "United Nations Headquarters District".
