What will happen to my multiple-entry visitor visa (B-2) if my extension is denied? Will I need to go for stamping again in India?


If a person in B-2 status files an extension request and remains in the U.S. while it is pending (beyond the I-94 expiration), s/he will be out of status and unlawfully present if the extension is denied. This period of overstay and unlawful presence automatically voids the multiple-entry visa under INA section 222(g). It therefore will be necessary to obtain a new visa in order to return to the U.S., and that visa must be requested in the home country. (02.Dec.2013)
