Thread: Tourist visa

  1. #1
    If someone enters on a B visa for a visit and the visa from the county of origin states "visit only for 6 months, no extension at all," can the person get married in the 6 month time frame?

    yes, you can get married, but you are not supposed to stay as an immigrant or even have such intent.

    You can get married- but what is illegal is if you knew you were *going* to get married WHEN YOU ENTERED. In fact you can apply for any other status available.

    oOh- and remember- the status is only good for until the date on the I-94. The six months on the VISA only refers to when one can *enter*, it has nothing to do with length of the stay. I-94 is sole determiner of length of visit.
