B2 Extension in Progress - Fingerprinting cancelled due to COVID

Recommended Posts

My MIL’s B2 visitor visa extension application is in progress and her 12 month stay will expire on June 2,2020. Her fingerprinting appointment was scheduled on Mar 20, but was cancelled due to COViD USCIS office closures. Her return trip to India is currently planned for May 23, 2020.

1. If the USCIS offices do not open before end of May and she cannot provide her fingerprints, her extension application will be denied. Will that cause issues during future travel to USA? 

2. If the COVID situation does not improve before her 12 month stay expires, are there options for her to legally stay on grounds of special circumstances (given she has already applied for extension once)?

Appreciate any input!
