Duration of Stay

The USCIS admits B2 visitors for pleasure for a period of time that is fair and reasonable for the completion of the purpose of the visit. USCIS Immigration Inspector will normally grant B2 visitors a six month period of authorized stay. When you apply for entry to the U.S., you will be required to explain to a USCIS Immigration Inspector the nature and purpose of your visit so that the Inspector can determine the appropriate length of stay.

B2 Tourist Visa Extension

You may apply for B2 visa extension provided the request is due to unexpected or compelling humanitarian reasons such as medical treatment or unforeseen delay in conclusion of a business matter.

You must file the request using Form I-539 and prove that you have adequate financial resources to continue staying in the U.S. and that you are maintaining residency abroad.

Change of Status in B2 Tourist Visa

You may change from a B2 visitor visa to another nonimmigrant category provided you can prove that you had no preconceived intent to change status. If you intend to change status to F-1, M-1 or J-1, you must state your intent while applying for the B2 visa.
