Extension of the Stay for Individuals Already in the United States on B1 B2 Visas
Business and Tourist Visa Extension of Stay Information: Foreign nationals visiting the United States on a B1 Business Visa or on a B2 Tourist Visa are issued an I-94 form by a United States immigration officer upon entry into the country. The I-94 Form is a small white card which shows your arrival date and location of entry into the United States. It also shows the date by which you must depart the United States. Travelers on B1 Business Visas and B2 Tourist Visas are usually allowed to stay in the United States for a period of up to six months, with the possibility of extension for up to six additional months upon approval of the extension application by the USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, formerly INS).
Business and Tourist Visa Extension of Stay Eligibility Requirements: Anyone currently in the United States on a B1 or B2 visa may file for an extension of stay. However there are no guarantees that the application will be approved. The USCIS takes into consideration factors that show your intention of departing the United States at the end of the proposed extension period. The applicant must submit the extension of stay application before the current authorized stay expires. The applicant is also required to provide proper evidence of financial support.
