  1. I saw the same message when I logged in, but there was a biometrics appointment letter for me to download and print. Perhaps there is a lag between when the notice is updated and when USCIS uploads the document. My suggestion is to call USCIS after 24 hours if you still don't see the letter. Also FYI: USCIS told me there would be a letter in the mail. I was able to see the letter online on 9/8/20 for an appointment on 9/24/20. As of 10/13/20, I have still not received this letter in the mail.
  2. Any and all information that explains why you are asking for more time. It will vary from case to case. Good luck.
  3. Sorry for the repeated messages. Did you get this info from A T-2 officer at USCIS, and in writing? I only ask because one of the people answering my call at USCIS told me this at one point, and then two others told me I should not. It was this conflicting info that led me to call a T-2 officer and ask for written confirmation. This is what they said: " If you made errors while completing your application, which you wish to correct, or if you are requesting for more time you may write a letter or affidavit fully explaining them and upload the document as “Other” to your USCIS online filing system case. If you do, you may also wish to upload any evidence you have to support those changes. The adjudicating officer may decide to take this information into account when deciding your case. If the adjudicating officer does not grant your request, you may wish to file a new I-539 application. If you do, you must wait until your present application has been adjudicated. "
  4. @Fire2024 - Yes, precisely. I found one or two such articles on third-party websites as well. However, I was looking for something more official, and directly from the USCIS. (I suspect arguing with USCIS later that we saw this on some random website won't help). So I called them, asked for a T2 officer who could send me written confirmation, and followed the instructions he sent me in his email - which was directly from USCIS. I added this email as "proof" when I placed a request for extension, so USCIS is aware that I followed instructions that they directly provided. The Officer also told me that one can't file an I-539 extension for something that isn't approved yet. This is the best information I have. I understand there is uncertainty in the situation. My best suggestion is that we all independently call USCIS and get information - in writing - directly from them, so we don't make mistakes. Good luck.
  5. @Fire2024 - Unfortunately, I don't know what to do in this specific case. My best suggestion is that you call USCIS, ask to speak to a tier-2 officer, and ask them for specific advice. The reason I say tier-2 officer is because they are authorized to send you written confirmation of their suggestion via email. That way, it is on record. I personally did this because I kept getting conflicting information from the individuals who answer the calls initially, and there was no way of knowing who was right. With a T2 officer, it's on record. Good luck.
  6. I called USCIS first, and asked to speak to a Tier 2 officer. The T2 officer told me to submit a letter that requests for more time than what was listed on my original I-539 application. I was asked to do this before the 6-month limit on the I-539 was up. He said I should NOT file a second I-539 application at this time, and I would be able to do so only after the current I-539 is adjudicated. I explicitly asked him to send me a confirmation of what was discussed via email so that I have it on record in case I need it. Good luck.
  7. UPDATE for anyone interested: I just requested for an extension on an I-539 application that was still pending. I called USCIS and asked to speak with a Tier-2 Officer. The officer told me that (a) CoS visas or extensions are typically issued for the duration that is specified on the submitted I539 application, (b) If that time is running out and the I539 has not been adjudicated yet, one should upload a letter via their online USCIS account (as "unsolicited evidence") stating that they need an extension, for how long, and why. They should also submit evidence supporting the request (i.e. justification for the extension); and finally (c) if/when the I539 gets adjudicated, assuming the decision is a positive one, we will be given an option to file for an extension at that time. Finally, I asked the officer to send me an email confirming this discussion - which he did - so that I have it on record in case USCIS needs clarification in the future (Note: only tier-2 officers can provide this email). Good luck everyone.

  9. Hello, Could you provide some info on how you are going to apply for an extension if the current application is still pending? I have an I-539 application for a B1/B2 visa that was requested until Sept 30th, but is still pending, and I want to extend it until Jan 2021. Do we file an I-539 form again? or is there a different procedure? Thank you.
  10. I was on an H1b visa that ended on 3/31/20. Before the end of my H1b visa, on 3/9/20 I filed an I539 form for adjustment of status to a B2 (visitor) visa, with the intention to travel within the US over a 6-month period (i.e. until 9/31/20). Unfortunately, pandemic-related closures of the application support centers (for biometrics), and delays at USCIS have resulted in my visa application still "pending". If I wish to stay past the date I had requested on my first I-539 application, can I file for an extension of the B2 visa even though my current application is still pending? Or can I change/edit my current application to request for a longer stay? What is the best way to do this?
