How can I extend my stay in the US?
This ensures that you keep a legal status in the United States.
How Many Time Can I Apply to Extend My Stay?
You cannot apply for your extension as many times as you would like. However, depending on the justification you can be granted stay for up to one year. Please note that you will usually be granted the extension for 6 months at a time.
Can I Apply For A Green Card While On My Visitor Visa?
Yes, as long as you do not commit any crimes you should typically be able to apply for your green card.
The U.S requires you to prove that:
- You were delayed due to circumstances beyond your control.
- You have not done anything in the U.S that would violate your non-immigrant status.
- You are not being deported from the country.
- You or someone on your behalf has not filed an immigration visa petition.
