My father came here on a Visitor visa granted for six months. At the end of 5 months we filed for an extension of visitor visa, as he wanted to do more sight seeing.
The refusal came when he was in the USA for about 8 months. After the refusal notice, my father left the country with in 5 days (i.e. as soon as practically possible).
Would above be considered visa overstay?
Thanks in advance folks.
Once the extension was denied your father was an overstay and his visa was automatically cancelled. The fact that CBP is erroneously letting him use it to re-enter the U.S. Sometimes it can take months or years for the computer to update as it is not uncommon for the issue to appear during a future inspection.
