Can I Stay in U.S. if My B2 Visa 
Extension Can Not Get Extension Approval in Time?

Help Desk:

I have a B2 visa to visit my son and his family in U.S., the B2 visa will expire next month. I just filed the B2 visa extension to USCIS 2 days ago. I want to know if I can stay in U.S. if my B2 visa extension can not get extension approval in time next month after its expiration?


Answer: Yes, you can stay in U.S. if your B2 visa extension can not get extension approval in time next month, after the B2 expiration. If USCIS has received your application , you should be able to stay in U.S.

Normally, you should apply to extend your stay at least 45 days before your authorized stay expires, but the USCIS Service Center must receive your application by the day your authorized stay expires. If you can not get B2 visa extension from USCIS and the date on your B2 visa is not valid, you should leave the country immediately if the response is negative.
