Entered on Visa Waiver, But Medical Reasons Prevent Me From Leaving on Time: Can I Extend Stay?
Extensions are possible for medical emergencies.
I came to the U.S. from New Zealand on the Visa Waiver program, for a ski vacation. I fully intended to leave before the required 90 days -- except that I collided with another skier, and am now in the hospital in a full body cast. Needless to say, I won't be leaving anytime soon. Is there any way I can get an extension so that I don't have an overstay on my immigration record?
