San Jose, CA asked in Immigration Law for California

Q: Can one file multiple extensions for B2 visa during Covid-19 for parents?

My mother came to the US in Dec 2019 on B2 visa and her i94 was until June 2020. She was supposed to leave in June 2020, before her i94 expired, but due to the Covid situation, we filed a 6 month extension for her in April 2020. The current status of the application is “Application was received"

1. Can we file another extension for her while the first one is still pending?

2. Is USCIS giving any consideration for visitors who are avoiding travel due to health concerns during the coronavirus pandemic?

A: 1. There is no need to file a second extension. In fact, it wouldn’t do you any good. It is best if you simply wait for USCIS to adjudicate that one currently pending.

2. If the individual can make the case, then such a reason should be considered.
