My parents came to the US in February under B2 visitor visa. They already extended visa one time for 6 months. Can they request another extension after staying here 1 year? Has anyone done it before?

Thanks!!!

Yes, but you should include an I-864 with finances documents. You should also show documentation that justifies the need for a 6 month extension.

After 3 rounds of interviews (total 4 inc recruiter screen) over the past 5 odd weeks, just got told by a T2 consulting firm that they doesn’t sponsor H1B visas which is frustrating because they were aware of my visa situation right at the start. Sigh 😢. Understand it happens but frustrating nonetheless given the time and effort invested.

Just got my H1B extension approved. If I decide to switch firm, can I go abroad (where h1b stamping is open) to get my visa stamped between the time I quit my current firm and join a new employer? Or do I need to be employed at the time of visa stamping? Are there any risks in doing this?
