E-2 extension required?
« on: March 17, 2015, 11:40:03 am »
My contract ends on the 25th of this month. My ARC expires on the 25th of April.

What I'm confused about is whether my visa expires on the 25th of March, or the 25th of April since I won't have a job?

If my E-2 visa lasts until April 25th, what is the purpose of the visa extension? Does that mean I can extend it to May 25th?

Your ARC represents your visa. When your ARC expires, your visa expires.

The month is like a grace period, for renewing your visa with a new workplace, or for leaving the country after your contract is finished.

You would only need an extension for things like if you have a plane ticket out of country for after your visa expires.
