Smile B1/B2 visa question

Hello All,

My mother has held a B1/B2 visa for last 5 years but never visited US (due to some changes in circumstances).

Her visa has just expired. I am wondering, will this non-visit factor be a negative mark on her future B1/B2 application?

Thanks and Regards,

No, non-use will not affect future B2 applications.

Non-use is probably a positive over never having one or having one refused. She didn't use it to move in when she had the chance.
