  • Immigration Officer wrongly stamped as B2 instead of B1 - CLARIFY!

    Hi..

    I came to US (POE - SFO) on Business trip (B1) on 2nd August from India.

    But, the Immigration Officer has marked as "B2" in the passport stamp and the same is reflected online I-94 form.

    Is this a concern, if yes ? please help to correct it.

    Thanks a lot for the help !

    What the officer stamped was based on his interpretation of the reason for your visit, based on his short interview with you. Or it may have just been a routine stamping to him.

    It really makes little difference, as you are using a visitor visa with a specific allowable stay time, after which you return to India (presumably), and nobody will be concerned with your "B" visa type in the future (unless you overstay).
