The Visitor centers around a college professor who lives in Connecticut and the illegal immigrant couple he finds squatting in his apartment in New York City. The main themes include immigration, illegal and legal; Walter's malaise; the couple's influence on Walter; deportation; American views on immigrants; and the non-physical abuses of imprisoned illegal immigrants.

The Visitor is based on a script by American writer Thomas McCarthy, who also directed this film.

Unless a civic situation requires it (subpoena, extradition, etc.), a deported foreigner is not allowed to back into the United States for ten years.
