completely depends on the officer at POE...they might get a shorter duration of stay this time..or just be warned.

 

normally its advisable to stay atleast 6 months to a year abroad before returning back to US...they might suspect that your parents are involved in working or baby sitting here.

Can not predict anything. There is a possibility.

Do they have a good reason for returning so soon?

 

They can be given a full stay, a limited stay or denied entry.  They should travel at their own risk  since they have only been at home for 3 1/2 months.,

As Long as denied access option is ruled out im good, even if they get reduced number of days for stay it is fine, is it s law that one has to be aborad for 6 months to 1 year ??

 

There is no such LAW about the duration of stay outside..but a general rule.

 

Also they will deny access only if they find out that they are involved in some illegal activities here..including baby sitting.

 

hope thats not the case.

They are in visitor visa that means for touristic purpose. A tourist has to spend considerable time in his/her home country and not outside in a year.

If you have a valid reason - like any family event - birthday / graduation/wedding etc, there is no problem.

Can they say that they want to visit Winter Places ?

 

TRUTH should be the answer...NEVER NEVER LIE to the US Immigration Officers.

Im planning to have POE as JFK, Is that a rule of 6 months to 1 year one needs to be aborad before returning to US ? - Can they say that they want to visit Winter Places ?

Visit winter places for relatively old parents from sub-tropical India. Are you joking?

Their is no rule, but its common sense. A visitor will never stay out of his home country for a longer time, if he is then he is not a visitor.

The real valid reason is my Visa expires by June 2014, I want my parents to cover the TOURIST place in USA. When they came last time , they covered east side, now i want to take them west side..that is the real reason, can they this reason during POE if questioned ?

Just tell the truth and you are good to go.

Of course they should give this as their reason for entry.  It even makes sense so they have little to lose if they try. Don't use it if you really will not be returning home in June of 2014.

They may be given a months stay or 6 months stay. Yes, they may be asked why they are back so soon. Why did you not plan it better?

I am not sure how that works with the fact that now they do not issue I-94 cards. May be off track, but how would a person know what is his/her limit on the stay without this card now?

Very simple. You can find validity date of I94 online

Basically you want validation from this forum. It does not matter . They can enter and it is unlikely they will be denied entry, extremely unlikely. Worst case they will get a shorter stay and a stamp of No EOS on their passport.

well if it helps you out: jun is the date of expiry of visa stamp and they can enter in may and get entry period of 6 months may be. In that case they are not visiting the US so soon after they went back.
