B2 Extension and Pending Application when Departing

Recommended Posts

We want to file for B2 visa extension with Form I-539. But, Form I-539 takes almost 7-8 months for approval. What happens for I-539 extension when you depart the country while the application is pending ( In 6 months departure while current processing times are 7-8 months) ? Will extension application be rejected on the grounds that application not present in US?

The application is denied if you don't show up for fingerprints. but if you did fingerprints, you may get approval after you leave. . This happened to my parents in 2020 ,mom got approved and dad got rejected as they didn't capture fingerprints correctly and they denied the application. so my dad technically overstayed . But they were both just able to re-enter today on the same B2 visa at JFK . So a huge relief for us and hope this helps to allay some fears that a lot others have had.
