My girlfriend is coming to visit me for 6 months from Brazil. Her B2 Visa expires in 2013. When the port of entry officer stamps her passport, will he limit her visit? We want her to stay 6 months.

I'm planning to travel to USA this month as first timer on H1. People who have travelled on first time with H1 visa, please share your experience.

Also let me know the documents carried and also mentioned the airport you entered.

Thanks you

Whenever you walk through a door, just look back for a second to see if someone's coming behind you and you can hold the door as a courtesy. Its not mandatory but sure the person behind would be appreciative of your deed. Even you wouldnt like the door be closed right on your face.

When you go to fast food restaurant, you are asked "For here or to go". That simply means whether you will eat the ordered food in the restaurant or you want it to get packed and take it with you.

One desi went to McDonald, and the conversation went more or less like this.
Clerk> For here or to go?
Desi> I am on H1 visa. I am initially here for 3 years.
Clerk> For here or to go?
Desi> Well, if my employer extends my H1 visa, I will be here for another 3 years. Otherwise, I will go.
Clerk> Huhhhhhhhhhhhhhh? For here or to go??
Desi > If my employer files for my green card, I will stay here. Otherwise, I will go.

I heard this funny incident on a local desi radio channel.

One person recently came to US on L1 visa went to take the driving lessons. This person was sitting on the driver seat and the instructor on the passenger seat.

At one point, there was a T junction and a stop sign. This person stopped at the stop sign and wouldn't take left or right turn. After some time, instructor asked, "How long are you going to stay?" This desi replied, "5 years, because I am on L1 visa".

Come on, he is asking how long you are going stay at that T junction. What does he care about what visa you are on?

I recently visited a Taco Bell and I saw the sign "Refill allowed only during the same visit".

This is referring to the refill of the glass for soda (Pepsi, 7 up etc.)

This made me wonder. They must be getting many customers who buy one drink, drink soda and take the glass home and bring it again to refill during their next visit.

This is simply misuse of refill concept.

Please don't do such things.
