Visa Extension vs Extension of stay:
Only persons who are already in the United States on a B-1 Business Visa or B-2 Tourist Visa may file an application for extension of stay. The purpose of this application guide is to help an individual already in the United States apply for an extension of stay. If you are abroad and have an expired B-1 Business Visa or B-2 Tourist Visa, you cannot extend the visa itself, you need to apply for a new visa at the U.S. Embassy or Consulate in your home country.
