Last month, I entered the U.S. using my B-2 visa. My I-94 was issued for 6 months, but my visa stamp expires in January. Is it legal for me to remain in the U.S. after January?


The B-2 visa “stamp” is an entry document. As long as it is valid at the time admission is requested, one typically can be admitted for up to 6 months. If the I-94 is still valid, the expiration of the visa “stamp” has no impact on status validity. (04.Nov.2021)
