My admit until date is on Jan 13, and I was supposed to leave on Jan 12. Unfortunately, I received my covid test today (Jan 9) and it came out positive, so there's no way they will allow me to board the plane. I immediately went to the USCIS website to file for an extension online but the website is down. So, if ever the website starts working again tomorrow and I am able to submit my application for b2 extension ONLINE, will that be alright? Like, how long does it take them to give an acknowledgement that they got my online application?

I understand that I should have done this 45 days before my stay ends but here we are. I'm hoping to be able to submit it before Jan 13. I will also try and give them a call tomorrow for clarification about this but I'm just really really worried right now if it would even make it on time if I submit it online.

    As long as the "received date" is before or on Jan 13, you are fine. Online applications should be received quickly. You should have enough time if you file now.
