What is a Visa Extension of Stay?

A visa extension of stay is when an individual who is already in the United States on a temporary visa, such as a tourist visa or student visa, applies to extend their stay for a longer period of time.

There are many reasons why someone might want to extend their stay in the United States including:

  • Wanting to stay longer to visit family or friends
  • Needing more time to complete a program or course of study
  • For purposes of receiving medical care or treatment
  • Wanting to invest more time in business ventures in the United States

If you are interested in extending your stay in the United States, we can evaluate your case and determine if you are eligible for an extension.

Who is Eligible for a Visa Extension of Stay?

Not everyone who wants to extend their stay in the United States will be eligible for a visa extension. The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has very specific requirements that must be met in order for an individual to qualify.

In order to qualify for a visa extension, you must:

  • Have a valid passport
  • Have not violated the terms of your visa
  • Be able to show that you still meet the requirements for the original visa category
  • Be able to show that you have enough money to support yourself during your stay in the United States
  • have a valid reason for wanting to extend your stay such as for medical treatments including child birth. If you meet all of the above requirements you may be eligible for visa extension. The best way to find out for sure is to contact an experienced visa extension of stay attorney. They will be able to evaluate your case and help you determine if you qualify.



What is the Process for Obtaining a Visa Extension of Stay?

The process for obtaining a visa extension of stay in the United States can vary depending on the type of visa you have. However, there are some general steps that all applicants will need to follow. First, you will need to complete an application form and submit it to the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

Along with your form, you will need to submit supporting documents such as a passport, birth certificate, and proof of financial stability. Once your application has been received, the USCIS will review it and make a decision. If your application is approved, you will be issued a new I-94 entry record that will allow you to stay in the United States for an extended period of time.

However, if your application is denied, you will need to leave the United States and apply for a new visa through the proper channels. Following these steps will help ensure that you are able to successfully obtain a visa extension of stay in the United States.
