Folks, if my parents stay 6 months on their B2 visa, is there a period of time they must stay outside the US before they can return on their B2?

What’s your actual question? Do you want to extend their stay in the US?

I think they can visit once every calendar year. There is no specified duration I believe. Not completely sure though. But I know you can extend their stay beyond the 6 month timeframe if you would like to.

My understanding is you can enter the US on a B2 and stay for a max period of 6 months. Then you must exit. Can a person exit to Toronto and return the following day? Is there a time period mandated by law that they must remain outside the US before returning on their B2 for another visit.

Ideally the person should spend more than 6 months (time spent in US) in their home country (or outside US). But that is not a law or implemented strictly, they are the guidelines as far as I know.
