Musaafir intending to extend his stay

Q: I travelled musaafir distance to one town and had a niyyah to stay for seven days. After seven days I decided to stay another 9 days. Will I be a musafir because my intention was to stay for only 7 days. Now my new intention is 9 days which is less than 15 days.

A: You will still remain a musaafir.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
