Visitor's Visa

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My brother has a B2 visa which he has never used and I haven't seen him over 10 yrs. I would really like for him to visit me in the USA but my parents has petition for him about 2 yrs ago. Is there anything that I need to do on my end? Any paperwork? My plan is to have him stay with me for 3 months, i will be booking a return ticket for him to return home.

Hi I just want to point out that you don't know how long he gets on his i94 so you need to go by that date. Also book the flight a few days before that date because you don't know about unforeseen circumstances like canceled flights or divertions. You definitely don't want him to accidentally overstay his i94. Ideally he should already have a return ticket upon entering but 3 months sounds unrealistic to be honest.

It’s typical that B2 visa holders get 6 months on i94.

Interesting. Thank you. I would still book the flight a few days before it expires to avoid an accidental overstay.

Visiting for almost 6 months might however raise questions about intention to return/ties to home country.

Yes, like how can a grown adult man afford to be away for 3-6 months, and will he try to work (illegally) whilst in the US......
