Default Parents' Visitor's Visa

Hi,

My parents came to the US to visit me last year for a period of 6 months. After around 4 and 1/2 months, they applied for an extension that was eventually denied; the decision came after their I-94 had expired. Hence, they left the US within 30 days of receiving the denial letter as was suggested in that letter.

What I'm unsure about is their VISA status - is their 5-year multiple-entry VISA still valid? How to find out if it is or is not?

Thanks in advance for any answers.

the multiple entry visitor visa will be cancelled if the extension is denied. I am pretty sure on that. That's why it's risky to apply for extension. They have to apply for new visitor visas.

We did lot of research when we applied for visa extension and concluded that it will not get cancelled. There is lots of confusing information out there.

Visa gets void only if they stayed beyond the authorized period. Since your parents were in authorized period, the visa should not be void. Keep all the related paperwork, in case of any question at next entry.

Basically a rejection of extension of stay doesn't by itself cause the visa void.
It is the overstay, which can void the visa.

The B visa is not automatically revoked, once they re-enter they will have to face the scrutiny of the officer at the port of entry, you have to carry all the documents with you showing that you filed for a timely extension and left as soon as you received the denial. They may allow you into the country without any problem or they may allow you into the country for a shorter period of time, or they may ask you to go back on the next flight and cancel your visa. Difficult to say. Applying one time for an extension should not mean that this will lead to a cancellation, other factors will be looked at such as how many months in a year are they staying in the US, what was the reason for the extension, they want to make sure that the B status is not being misused.

Default Thanks...

to all who replied.

So, it seems that their VISA is still valid, as they did not overstay (they waited for the decision and left within the timeframe suggested on the denial letter). Thanks once again!

Smile An answer from the final authority

Here are the conditions under which the 222(g) applies. Looks like it depends on whether it was D/S or they were admitted for a particular date etc etc.
