Filing for a Request to Stay

Any request to extend a stay in the U.S. must be filed and received by United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) prior to an expiration of the current authorized period. A request to remain in the United States can either be done as a change of status or as an extension.

There are certain circumstances under which an extension can be filed. You must have been lawfully admitted to the United States, have no criminal convictions, and the terms of your current status must not have been violated in order to still be eligible.

There are certain people who are ineligible for an extension. This includes those who:

  • Are here based on a waiver
  • Have a visa related to being a crew member
  • Have a fiancé visa
