I applied for a B-1/B-2 visa so I can attend some meetings in the U.S. The visa is valid for 10 years, but the meetings were cancelled, so I have yet to enter the U.S. Do I have to use the visa within a certain period for it to remain valid?


Ordinarily, a B-1/B-2 visa will remain valid through the expiration date listed. There is no other set deadline one must meet for the visa to remain valid. (15.Sep.2022)
