Does anyone know if the B1 visa can be extended in US? The visa stamp on the passport is for 6months. when entered US, the officer granted 5.5 months of stay.......

I am thinking I simply appy for B1 extension 30 days before I-94 expiry date and the actual visa stamp on the visa does not matter.....is it true

Thanks for your time!!

Yes you can extend your B1, but you must have a very good reason for your extension request. And you may be questioned next time you come into the country. I have a friend that was questioned on a returning trip to the US
