Whoever applies for a visa must understand that the visa alone does not guarantee entry to the United States. It is the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and not the Consular Section, which has authority to deny entry, and to decide upon the length of stay permitted. At the port of entry to the U.S. a DHS official must authorize the traveler's entry. At that time, Form I-94 (Record of Arrival-Departure) is validated with the date until which the visit is authorized. Whoever wishes to extend his visit beyond the date authorized on Form I-94, must contact the DHS to request form I-539 (Application to Extend Status). The decision to authorize or deny that extension can only be made by the DHS. The Consular Section can answer questions regarding visa applications and ineligibilities.
