I was in B-2 status for six months, and then came back to my home country about three months ago. Can I come back in on my B-2 visa? Am I required to wait six months between visits?


There is no set amount of time a person must wait between visits. Whether the person will be admitted, however, is subject to the discretion of the CBP officer at the airport. If the officer is not satisfied that one is truly a “visitor,” admission may be refused, or a shortened admission of only a few weeks or months may be given. (14.May.2018)
