<h1>Terms of Admission of Nonimmigrants</h1> <p>The Attorney General is empowered to prescribe condi&nbsp;tions for the admission of nonimmigrants, including the&nbsp;furnishing of a bond when deemed appropriate to insure the&nbsp;alien&rsquo;s departure from the United States upon the&nbsp;expiration of his alloted time or upon his failure to main-tain status.</p> <p>An applicant for entry or extension of stay&nbsp;as a nonimmigrant must establish that he is admissible to the United States or that a ground for inadmissibility has&nbsp;been waived, and that he has any necessary passport and&nbsp;visa, unless such documents have been waived.</p> <p>The following conditions apply generally to all non&nbsp;immigrants:</p> <p>(1) Time limits. The admitting immigration officer fixes&nbsp;the maximum span for which the nonimmigrant is admitted, making allowance for the time needed to accomplish this&nbsp;temporary purpose of the entry.</p> <p>(2) Conditions of stay. After admission to the United States as a a nonimmigrant the alien is permitted to remain in the United States only upon the following conditions.&nbsp;That he will maintain the nonimmigrant status under&nbsp;which he was admitted or which he subsequently may have&nbsp;been accorded.</p> <p>That he will depart from the United States within the&nbsp;period of his admission or any authorized extension, or on&nbsp;abandonment of his authorized nonimmigrant status.</p> <p>That he will not engage in employment or activity in the&nbsp;United States inconsistent with his status unless permission&nbsp;is first obtained from the district director at the place of the&nbsp;alien&rsquo;s temporary residence in the United States.</p> <p>That he will fulfill other conditions imposed by the admit&nbsp;ting immigration officer to assure his maintenance of status&nbsp;and timely departure.</p> <p>There is no authority to revoke nonimmigrant status, and&nbsp;violations of such status can be challenged only in deporta&nbsp;tion proceedings.</p> <p>(3) Extensions of temporary stay. Any nonimmigrant,&nbsp;other than one admitted in transit (C), fiancee (K), or as&nbsp;an alien crewman (D), who has not violated his status or&nbsp;overstayed his allotted time may be granted an extension or&nbsp;extensions of his temporary stay. However, extensions of&nbsp;stay are subject to the same conditions as the original ad&nbsp;mission; the applicant must show compliance with previous conditions and agree to comply with further conditions that&nbsp;may be imposed.</p> <p>A nonimmigrant who violates his status or overstays his authorized period of stay is subject to deportation. How ever, as noted in Chapter 7, an alien admitted as a nonimmi grant is eligible to apply for adjustment to permanent resi dence status.</p>
