  • B-2 to the US

    a friend of mine plans on getting a B-2 visa to the US. She is a citizen of the UK, but wants to stay in the US to be with her b/f/fiance. As UK citizen she can only stay a maximum of 90 days a year. If she get a B-2 visa for 2,5,10 years with multiple entry, she can stay at the maximum of 6 months. the question is how long and how often does she have to go back to the UK before she can come back to the US? i know someone will write well, B-2 is for a visitor etc and as long as she is visiting, etc. but this seems to be a way for her to stay here longer, so just asking. thanks.

      WHAT IS THE B-2 VISA? BUSINESS VISA?

        Water: Your friend is planning visa fraud. A B-1/B-2 tourist visa is expressly for the purpose of visiting America for short periods of time...it is not meant as a shortcut to immigrating here.

        The fact that your friend has a boyfriend/fiance in America means that she is likely to be denied a B-1/B-2 tourist visa. At any point that Customs and Border Protection determines that your friend has overstayed her welcome in America - or misrepresented her intentions - she will be denied entry and sent home on the first available flight.

        The best course of action for all concerned would be for your friend to follow the law. This discussion board is full of illegals who at one time thought themselves too important to follow America's rules...and now regret their decision that seemed all too easy at the time!

              Sundevilusa is correct. The purpose of a B2 is not to evade the immigration laws of the U.S. The Department of State is niggardly with B2 visas for Visa Waiver qualified assuming that they are planning live in the U.S. Though it is not impossible if you explain the truth to the consular officer. However, just coming in and out at on the Visa Waiver every 90 days or on a B2 every six months will not fly with CBP.
