If anyone could help guide me to some information or contact it would be greatly appreciated! I have a very good friend of mine from Russia who got a B2 Visa to the US, which was good for 6 months. Upon arriving by plane at JFK, she went to customs. She had all her documentation and is a regular vistor to the states for both work and travel. She was planning to visit a school in Deerfield, Kansas where she was being offered a teaching position for their Russian course. She got the job, and was going to helped by the school administration to apply for a work visa. Given these circumstances, she did not arrive in the US with a return ticket. A customs agent, who was apparently having a very bad day, told her she must buy return ticket or be deported. In addition, he cancelled her visa, and shortened it to one month. She was forced to purchase a $1400 dollar ticket. My question is, where can she find an appeals office or an agency that she can change the conditions of her Visa? She had a legal B2 Visa given to her by the US Embassy. In addition, the school has sent the paid, shortened paper work to apply for a US Visa on her behalf. She is a wonderful, law abiding person and wants to do this the completely legal way. Any help would be immensely appreciated.
