Immigration Issues/US B2 Visitor Vis

Advertisement


Question
Hello Sir,
I have a B2 Visa expiring on 8/18/2016. I have entered the US on 5/30/2016 and the immigration officer have stamped on my passport until 11/30/2016 (six months).
Does that mean that I can stay until 11/30/2016, even though my visa expires on 8/18/2016. Please advise.

Thanks and Regards,
Kader.

Answer
Hello,

You can stay until November 20, 2016. August 18, 2016 is the last day you must use your visa to enter the United States. At the airport, the US customs officer will decide the length of time you can stay in the United States.

Thank you very much for your attention. Best regards.
