Asked about 4 years ago - Mableton, GA

Hi, i m in US on B2 visa, at port of entry & the immigration officer wrote STAY LIMITED, NO AOS, COS, EOS on my passport. it is been 10 days i came & now im planning to go back to my country & apply for F1 visa after 1 year or so.

    Lawyers agree

    Answered . The officer was worried that you were going to stay longer in the U.S., so he wrote no AOS (adjustment of status), COS (change of status) or EOS (extension of status). However, if you go abroad and apply for an F-1 visa, whatever the officer wrote on your I-94 will not stop you from qualifying for F-1 student status.

    Answered . Even if you were to apply for change of status within the U.S., the officer's notations would not legally preclude you from changing status in the U.S.
