If you want to extend your stay in the United States, we recommend that you apply at least 45 days before your authorized stay expires. If you remain in the United States after your authorized period of stay expires, you may be barred from returning and/or you may be removed (deported) from the United States. You also may be required to apply for a new visa in the country of your nationality.
