I have a friend have been seeing for a couple weeks right

Customer Question
now. We Like each...
I have a friend have been seeing for a couple weeks right now. We Like each other and like to start a relationship. Unfortunately her permit visa expires september eighth and she has return back to Belarus. Is there anyway I can extend her stay without having to marry her or apply for a special visa so she can come back again. She has been coming to America for the last two years during the summer with a student visa. But she won't be able to use that kind of visa next year because she will be done with her university.

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will be the licensed immigration attorney helping you today.

She can apply for a change of status from student to tourist visa while she is here inside the US and she does not have to leave. She has to make sure to submit the application for extension I-539 BEFORE September 8th.You can find it on uscis.gov/forms

She should write a cover letter explaining why she wants to stay and it must be for tourist reasons such as visiting places or attending special events. If it is approved, they will give her an additional 6 months in the US. Once she departs from the US, she can also apply for a tourist visa from Belarus to come back in as a tourist.

Getting a visa to work at a restaurant would be very difficult.

Good luck to you during this process and I hope this answer has helped you!

If she applies for Visa by Monday how long will it take for her to get an approval?
Immigration Lawyer: Jen Marie, Esq., Immigration Attorney replied 1 year ago

The approval takes about 2-4 months but as long as USCIS receives the application to extend before Sept 8th, then she is okay to stay in the US past September 8th and wait here for a decision.

I hope this clarifies your doubts and hope to have earned your positive rating.

Will she she able to work during that time
Immigration Lawyer: Jen Marie, Esq., Immigration Attorney replied 1 year ago

No she cannot work at all legally. She must be here as a tourist and only be doing tourist activities.

Hope that helps. Thanks for your consideration.

Best of luck!

Is there another form she can fill out to be able to work at her current job
Immigration Lawyer: Jen Marie, Esq., Immigration Attorney replied 1 year ago

Unfortunately no, not right away; it is not so simple to get a work visa. She can apply for an H1B work visa but that does not open until April 2017.

I'm very sorry but I do have to go now. I hope I have answered all of your questions and I hope that I have earned your positive rating. That's the only way that we receive credit for our time helping you. Thanks in advance.
