B1/ B2 Visa Renewal in New Delhi (Interview Waived)
Do I need to be physically present for a B1/B2 visa renewal at the ASC or can it be submitted through someone else? Note: My interview was waived.
The reason I ask is because on my DS-160 confirmation it says photo will be taken at ASC, but I am already providing a photo in my application.

Required for follow-up interview after sending documents but there are no available appointments in the system. Anyone same?
I am wondering who is in the same situation as me. I am in Canada applying for a F-1 renewal visa. I was required for a follow-up interview after sending documents, but there are no available interview in the system. It simply reads, "there are no available appointment at this time. Please try again later." I tried 5 times a day for a month, but nothing happened.

 I have emailed visa services, they just said they had no control over how the appointments become available, so I contacted consulate and embassy. No one replied me. How can you ask for interview but don't let people make an appointment? That is so frustrating. I am just wondering who have this same situation with me?

Passport typo in CGI Federal Application.
Hi

I have filled DS160 form successfully and information provided there is correct.
Then I filled CGI portal application and paid the fees as well.

However later I realized, that on CGI portal my passport has a typo mistake.

I called the help desk and they asked me to proceed for interview and let them inform about this.

Did anyone face similar issue before? Any response would be highly appreciated.

B2 Extension - Date/Period Question
My mother's I-94 set her "admit until date" as 04/23/2021. Due to medical reasons, we filed I-539 on 02/23/2021 to extend her stay. We have since done her biometrics collection for that. We have since filed her I-130 online I-485 at the Chicago office by mail in the last couple of weeks. While we received a receipt notice for I-130 online and by mail, we have still not received a receipt notice for her I-485 yet. From what we see on online trackers, it could take a 3-4 weeks for that to happen mostly.

When we applied for her I-539, we did not know that we could extend her stay for 280 days, and hence did it only for 181 days assuming that was the maximum. So, we put her "extend until date" as 10/21/2021 on the form. Now that date is coming closer and there is a slight risk that she might not receive the I-485 receipt notice before that date.

1. Will she be considered as overstaying in that case? Or will 240 days still be considered the maximum time she can stay?
2. Does USCIS look at the date we requested or just extend stay for 240 days blanket?
3. Is there any way to modify I-539 to change and extend date to 240 days (12/19/2021 in this case)?

We are thinking of going to an attorney, but just thought of checking in first in case someone has been in a similar situation before. Thanks in advance!

Regarding my unique case of B-2 and F-1
Hello,

I applied for a I-539 COS for changing my status from L-2 to F-1 in May 2020 since I turned 21 in October 2020 and couldn't be on a dependent visa anymore. On September 2020. I also applied for another I-539 to change status from L-2 to B-2 so as to "bridge the gap" between the period I turn 21 and the F-1 applications is approved. It is now September 2021 and I haven't received approval for either of the applications. My university needs the F-1 to be approved by December or they will have to cancel my I-20.

Now my question is even if my F-1 doesn't come by December 2021. Can I still live in the United States because my B-2 COS is still pending? Please note currently my L-2 visa has expired due to aging out. My family lives in the USA so can I stay here with them or do I need to go back to my home country?

Need guidance for my parents Visitor Visa
I Need to apply visitor visa for my parents. Their application in 2019 was sponsored by me and got denied with 214b at time of interview. I am currently in US on work visa. My father has business kind of a shop in India and mother is housewife. My father told them that they need to visit for tourism and to see us during interview. Not sure what went wrong and they refused the visa.
Could it be because of mentioned nature of business or purpose of visit ?

Can someone guide that how the new application be filled and what should be demonstrated to make strong case and get a Visa for my parents ?
