CAN SOMEONE REAPPLY FOR B1/B2 VISA FROM WITHIN United States ?

-Visa is a travel document. It allows you to board the plane bound for the US and appears in front of a CBP officer to seek admission to the US. The CBP officer than "admits" you for a certain period of time. For B1/B2, no more than 6 months. When you're in the US, you're said to be in B1/B2 status, and as mentioned in the previous sentence, that status is set by the CBP officer and indicated in form I-94. You cannot stay in the US pass the date on the I-94. That B1/B2 status can be extended while you're in the US, provided you file form I-539 Extension of status with USCIS before the date indicated on the I-94, and with a valid reason, of course. 

 

-As for the Visa itself (the foil stamp that the US Embassy/Consulate placed in your passport), that cannot be extended within the US. Only US Embassy/Consulate overseas issue visas. One crucial thing to remember is that the validity of your visa is NOT how long you're allowed to stay in the US.

If you have a VALID reason, you can apply for extension. But you cannot get a new visa to the US from within US. Common sense here.

 

 

Are you asking for another "friend"? Like here:

 

or here

if those are not "friends" but you in fact, then I highly doubt you'll get extension approved.

Tell your "friends" to get their own accounts because this is getting ridiculous.

That is fine but then you and your friend should get all the correct answers already.  Probably the answers are hard to accept but they are what they are.

That is what this platform is designed to achieve. We come here to ask questions and to get answers. it is very simple , people always have a choice to ignore questions they don't like or find annoying. No one is compelled by anyone to answer. In a public space like this, people should not get personal with issues

How many friends traveling on B2's do you have? lol. 

 

Key thing for anyone extending, or trying to, is if rejected they are risking overstay accumulation. It better be one good reason to try even. Applying doesn't guarantee approval of the request. And by time you get the answer time might be up anyways.
