visa extension processing?
i have US tourist visa (B2) and i am authorized to stay until the 30th of dec. im planning to apply for another 6mos. extension. isnt it too late? ive read that i can apply as long as the authorized date isn’t over but i’m confused that the processing might take months. please help.
It is recommended that you apply 45 days in advance. You can apply before your I-94 expires, and if your application and fee are accepted, you will receive an answer to your application. It could take several months before you get an answer.
You cannot anticipate a favorable decision although applications for extensions of stay are granted every day of the week. Your application will be adjudicated on its own merits.
You need to submit a signed and completed Form I-539 to the CIS service center office that has jurisdiction over your current residence.
