I’m afraid we haven’t heard anything either

Only 2 weeks before we fly so it’s just not going to happen for us unfortunately, I really hope you have more time than us to get yours sorted

Claim there's a travel ban now. Result. Not what you were hoping for I am sure.

Hi

well we were due to go away to the US during Easter, we haven't contacted the travel firm yet to either a) getting a refund, or b) postponing and re-booking for Easter 2021. I was issued with my 5 years visa in May 2016 and that is due to expire on May 2021. Does anyone know if you can travel to the US with a month (or three weeks) left on your visa (we will be leaving before it actually expires). I have searched high and low and cannot find an answer nor a telephone number to call that could advise.
If anyone knows the answer, can steer me in the right direction, or have a phone number to the correct department, I would most appreciate it!

you can enter on the very last day of your visa so you will be fine.

Jay1976 is correct.

Bear in mind you can also re-apply before your current visa expires, so given you have a wait in, if you want to go through the waiver process whilst you do, that's fine.

I thought of that, but I am anticipating delays for the issuance of visas on the horizon...

The term “visa” is often misused. Even courts tend to confuse with terms of admission or stay. (And this includes the Supreme Cour, but I digress). A “visa” is permission to apply for admission to the United States. In law that goes back to the days of ships, one must commence travel to the US from the origin country of the trip (e.g. a flight from Manchester to Heathrow does not count, but a flight from Manchester Charles De Gaulle does). So it is possible to arrive with an expired “visa” and be admitted for six months.

Has anybody had any updates on their waivers. Seems to me certain things are still moving along as someone that has already had their interview I was close to the point of getting a reply when everything shut down.

I emailed the embassy in May to be told it's still in the system.

Hi all, my current b2 visa is scheduled to expire in September 2022. I want to apply for a new as I know they take the best part of a year to be processed. Can anyone please confirm whether I am okay to apply now?

Also, I have kind of forgotten the process to apply for a B2 Visa. Is it fill in the DS160, book an appointment at the consulate and attend with an up to date ACRO and then wait?

Currently there are no appointments being offered for B2 visa interviews. My own visa has just expired, nothing we can do but wait until they restart non-emergency visa services. I dont know how long that might be!

Hi I managed to book an appointment but it's not UNTIL November 2022. This was after I completed the DS 160. Do you know long prior to your Visa expiring you can visit the USA?

nov 1st 2022 is just because their system can’t offer you ‘no availability’ but that’s what it really means. That’s the only day showing right?

you can visit right up to your date of expiration as far as I know. And the. Stay as long as granted on entry, usually six months.

Yes that's the date, I actually thought it meant my appointment was booked for then?

No, not unless they can see thousands of us all on the same day :-)

I imagine what will happen is at some point next year (or who knows when!) we will get an email advising that our "appointment" has been cancelled and to rebook. But that wont happen until services are back to normal and they have cleared through the backlog of what they deem higher priority visa appointments and can thus put some actual availability live on the system. But thats just a guess.
