I will be accompany [them/her/him] during [their/her/his] tour.

Since I work full-time, I can only show [them/her/him] around and take [them/her/him] to various places on weekends. A six months stay would thus allow [them/her/him] to not only do this, but to also spend some quality time with us. [They/She/He] already [have/has] a return ticket for [Month, Year] and I have obtained health insurance for [them/her/him] for a period of [6] months. Therefore, I request you to grant [them/her/him] a longer stay in USA and let [them/her/him] stay for 6 months in USA.

Sincerely,
