My in-laws overstayed for about a month. This is because they were waiting for their visa extension which was refused (and the notification came after I-94 expired). They left voluntarily after a month.
1) Is their B1/B2 tourist visa still valid, and they use it to come back next year?
2) Also, would it be appropriate for them to come after ~ 8 months after they left the US, OR should they rather wait for a year to come back?
3) if their earlier visas are invalid, what chances do they have in getting a fresh tourist visa? They have strong family ties to India and have no desire to immigrate. Will their extension denial and overstay go against them?
many thanks for guidance.
