Question
Hi
Actually one of my friend is comming to USA on Visiting visa.After comming here is there any possibility to change his status, means converting to some other status like student or something.
Can u please advise me.

Answer
Sudha,
Yes you can change your visa status in the United States. But there is also a question of intent that you need to overcome in these situations. The USCIS will presume fraudulent intent if you change your status immediately on arrival.

Sincerely,
