Parents travelling to US in Visitor Visa after extension withdrawal due to COVID restrictions


Recommended Posts

My MIL came to the US on a visitor visa in January 2020 and could not travel due to the COVID lockdown. We promptly filed for an I-539 extension one month before her I-94 expiration date. However, she had an emergency situation wherein her sister became ill, and she had to leave on one of the first emergency flights while her I-539 petition was still pending. Due to the lockdown and processing delays, we received the biometrics letter one week after she left for India. As per USICS advice, we formally withdrew her I-539 petition, and we received a letter confirming the withdrawal.

Question: She is planning to visit us in late November. Will she face any issues at the port of entry? What documents should she carry? She cannot speak English. Should someone accompany her?
