how to renew US tourist visa?
My parents want to renew their visa. their visa will expire on January 24, 2012. I just want to know the process of multiple tourist visa renewal.
U.S. Tourist visa can be used to travel to the U.S. And seek entry up to the expiration date. How long your parents may stay in the U.S. Will be determined by a U.S. Immigration Officer on arrival; it has nothing to do with for how long their visa are valid. If they plan to travel before January 23, 2012 no action is required.
There are no renewal procedures for a U.S. B-2 visa. A new application from scratch must be made and your parents need to provide the same updated documentation as for their initial application. They must convince the Visa Officer that they do not plan to immigrate to the U.S. And that they have strong economical and social ties to India which compel them to return back home after their authorized stay in the United States. The application fee for a U.S. Visa is meanwhile $140.
