      The 10 year tourist "visa" stamped in your passport is only permission from the Department of State to travel to the U.S. Once you arrive, INS issues the actual visa. For a tourist this is a maximum of 6 months. You can apply once while you are in the U.S. to extend this by another 6 months.

      With INS's new priority of security first, they will most likely issue less than 6 months depending on the purpose of your visit.

      The most important document is the little piece of paper INS puts in your passport when you enter the country and you hand to the airline when you leave.

        The US "visa" is actually an "entry permit". It does not let you stay in the country for 10 years. All it allows you to do is to present yourself in front of a US Immigration officer at port of entry for the next 10 years multiple number of times.

        The actual period you will be allowed to stay will depend upon the immigration officer, your funds and the reason for your visit.
