How long can my parents stay in the USA with a Tourist visa?
My parents are in Chile and they want to come here to visit US to meet our baby. They have a Tourist visa to the USA for 10 years and this will be the 3rd time coming here. How long can they stay? 3 or 6 months?
The tourist visa allows a visit of up to 6 months. However, the immigration officer they see as they enter the U.S. Decides how long they may actually stay. He will give them a paper with the date by which they must leave written on it. If they can prove they have funds to cover their stay, they should get the full 6 months. People who come under the visa waiver program may only stay 90 days.
