I came on a b2 visa applied for f1 which was denied so I applied to change to f2 since my husband is on f1 which was approved. Where within the US can I have the f2 visa stamped on my passport to permit me travel out of the US(a visit to Canada)
Note: my b2 visa already expired
A new visa stamp cannot be obtained while in the US. Visas are different than status. Visa applications are determined by the US Department of State through consular officers, while change of status while in the US is determined by the US Department of Homeland Security, Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS). Your B2 visa may have expired and your B2 status may have expired but according to the stated post, your request to change status was approved by the USCIS for an F2 status. If this is the case, you will either need to remain in the US as an F2 without violating your status and according to your spouse's F1 and maintenance of status as an F1, or if you want to leave the US, you need to apply for a new visa to return to the US in that visa classification. IF you are uncertain of your status or have more questions about what is needed for a visa application, seek a private consultation.
