Note: This is NOT a duplicate of this question
Difference: In both other questions, the posters traveled once to the US for the original purpose for which the B1 visa was obtained. Their question is about visiting again using the same visa. However, I've not traveled to the US yet, and I'm planning my visit. What I want to understand whether I can use this visa for a visit whose purpose is not the same as what was submitted along with the application.
Can I use a B1/B2 visa for tourism that was originally obtained for business purposes BEFORE I actually visit the US even once?
I had applied for a business visitor visa for a valid business reason but by the time I got it stamped, my plan changed. So I've not visited the US even once.
Can I now use this visa to visit as a tourist without having used that visa for its original intended purpose?
PS: I live in India.
