Need your expert advice and valuable suggestions in below scenario:
My mother got her visitor visa(b2) for six months valid May'06 thru' Nov'06. Due to some reasons, her trip was delayed and now she will enter US on 31st Aug'06.
- Is it advisable to request immigration officer (at port of entry) for extended I94 .i.e till Feb'07 or few months after expiry date 07 Nov'06. Since, she had not stayed for enter valid period of visa.
-Secondly, i understood from different forums that visa date and I94 date is not linked; would it be helpful to request and get an extended I94 atleast couple of months, if not entire period of visa.
- if not, then we have to follow the extension process immediately.
Appreciate your valuable suggestion.
