Briggsy 17913 Posted February 8, 2011 Share Posted February 8, 2011 This is a digression from a discussion on another thread. A friend is here on a non-immigrant 'O' multi-entry visa. He has been offered work and his prospective employer wants him to do a visa run to Laos to get a non-immigrant 'B'. I was informed that an extension of stay based upon a work permit can be processed with a non-immigrant 'O' visa and a non-immigrant 'B' visa is therefore not required. He asked his employer to process the work permit/extension of stay using his non-imm 'O' but the employer seems to think this can only be done in the case of an 'O' visa on the grounds of marriage. His 'O' was issued on the grounds of visiting family. His father lives here on a retirement visa. So, can his work permit/extension of stay be processed on his current visa or is a visa run to obtain a non-imm 'B' necessary? Thanks for your insight.
