Staying for more than 180 days on B2 visitor Visa


Recommended Posts

I booked tickets from my mother-in-law to stay in USA for 6 months. I was under assumption that one could stay on visitor visa for 6 months, however I read on couple of sites that maximum stay in USA on visitor visa is 180 days.

My mother-in-law's total stay from the date of arrival to the date of departure comes up to 182 days. How much of a problem is this? What is the maximum stay duration? Can my mother-in-law get an I-94 for 182 days?

Please let me know.

The regulations state that in most cases, the CBP officer will admit a visitor for a minimum of six months. In most cases one must ensure they depart before the end of the validity period listed on the Form I-94. In some cases, options such as an extension application may be possible. It is advisable to schedule an appointment with a qualified immigration attorney for further information.
