I assume that the exchange visa here is the J1 visa for the foreign exchange visitors. To acquire an extension beyond the limited years of stay of your J1 exchange visitor program, you will need to contact the responsible officer/alternate responsible officer at your institution concerning an extension. Usually, it will reauire certain reason, such as the requirement of your current program or project and fill forms for the extension, and may also require your current copy of form DS-2019 or IAP-66.

Can you extend a schengen visa in Spain?

The question can be read two different ways.Can a Schengen Visa be used in Spain even if it's for a different country?A Schengen Visa is automatically valid for Spain.Spain is part of the Schengen Area, and all Schengen visas are vaild for all Schengen countries.Can an existent Schengen Visa be extended for a longer period of time in Spain?It depends on the country that issued the Schengen Visa and the purpose of the extension. If Spain issued the original Schengen Visa or the next Visa will predominantly be for Spain, you must go outside of Spain to extend the visa in order to get to a Spanish Embassy or Consulates. (There are no Spanish Embassies or Consulates inside of Spain.) If the Schengen Visa is for another EU country, it may be possible to visit their embassies or consulates in Spain for an extension.If there is no viable reason for the Visa to be extended, the extension will be denied.

How long can a UK citizen stay in the US without a visa?

You need a visa to even enter the United States. Without one you can be deported immediately.This is incorrect.The tourist must have a passport to enter the country, not a visa. Typically, the "stamp" in your passport is good for 90 days. If the traveler wants to exceed those 90 days, they must apply to have an extended stay, and at that time, can also apply for a visa.A visa is completley different from visiting. A passport grants you access to a country, but you cannot work in that country. A visa would allow that traveler to work in the country he/she is visiting.
