B1/B2 Visa Extension (of a second entry in less than 6 months)


Recommended Posts

Hi,
I am currently in the US on a vistitor visa and am upskilling in AI Governance (in line with the Biden Executive Order). I plan to take two relevant certifications within the next six months (though exam dates are not yet booked). Former colleagues who have obtained these certifications advise that 3-6 months of study are typically required to pass. In addition to the certifications, currently, I'm enrolled in an AI Fundamentals training program and collaborating on a capstone project with colleagues on the West Coast. Due to these commitments and my desire to secure a job in the field (having previously held a work visa), I'm considering requesting a six-month extension of my B1/B2 visa. This would be my first extension request (of a second entry in less than 6 months), and my final attempt to find employment in the US (last year USCIS permitted visitors to look for jobs and attend interviews). I would appreciate your advice on whether these grounds are sufficient for a successful extension application and what should I cite in my extension request. Thank you for your time and assistance!
