What Happens When You’re Denied Entry to the US at the Airport?

Denied Entry Airport

If you are denied entry into the United States after a long flight, you might be tempted to argue with the airport officials. Do not argue. Many foreign travelers are denied entry to the US at airport terminals every day. The causes may vary because of the traveler’s background.

Background Denials Might Include:

• Criminal history
• Prior US entry denial
• Suspicions of malicious intent
• Problems with paperwork
• Conflicts with travel documentation

The most common reason individuals are turned away at an airport is paperwork. Travelers may have overstayed a prior visa or passport allowance. They may even have expired documentation.

It is rare for most travelers to be denied entry into the States because of criminal background problems, but this can cause trouble. However, if you have been refused entry into the United States at any point in the past, even for an expired passport, the previous denial is reasoning enough for future denial.

Steps to Follow When Denied Entry to the US at the Airport

You will probably be standing in the airport terminal when you discover that you have been denied entrance into the United States. When you receive this bad news, you must follow these steps before doing anything else.

  1. Ask for patience: If you can avoid having your record officially entered as denied entry, you will benefit in the long run. Ask to call a lawyer first if possible.  Niren and Associates have lots of experience helping people out who have been denied entry and can provide the guidance you’ll need to overturn the decision, if possible.
  2. Ask follow-up questions: Do so in a calm, non-threatening manner and do not accept “no” for an answer. If you are shown disrespect, remain calm and continue to ask questions.
  3. Take notes: It is essential to write the responses to each of your questions regarding your denied entry. Be as detailed as possible.
  4. Find a quiet place to collect your details: You want to pay particular attention to your paperwork at this time. You will likely have been given the reason for your denial. Recheck all paperwork to confirm the details of your entry refusal.
  5. Call a lawyer: If you have not established a lawyer for a case such as this, take the opportunity to contact ones like Niren and Associates and relay the details of your case appropriately.

What a Lawyer Will Do:

Once an immigration attorney learns about your denied US access, he or she will go to work on your case and help you solve the rejection of your visa. It is possible and likely that you will find a solution that will allow you into the country if you followed the steps regarding your rejection.

Certainly, if you have a criminal background and were denied for that reason, or if you do not have the proper paperwork, or if you did not respectfully navigate your interactions with US airport employees, you might be in a dead-end case. If you are worried about being denied entry to the US at the airport, a lawyer can help you take the next necessary steps to gain US access or return safely home for further work on your travel documentation.

    Hi, I’m traveling to the US in 2 weeks and I used ESTA to apply for an entry which was then accepted and I wasn’t denied to enter. The thing is that I later found out that I might not be able to enter the US becaue I’m born in Iraq and its too late to apply for an travel visa to the USA so I only have my ESTA visa to rely on. I do not have an iraqi passport and I don’t have evidence or papers on that I’m an iraqi citizen because I was born during the wars that where happening and there wasn’t such a system avaiable. I live in Sweden right now and have been living here for the last 14 years; I have a swedish passport and I’m a swedish citizen, I’m going to the US to see my cousins and for tourism, My question is, is it possible for them to deny my entry to the US because I dont have an Visa or can I enter to the US with my Esta, and what should I do if they deny my entry?

    my wife and kids are currently in the US. They were to spend about one month initially but unfortunately the younger kid fell ill hence the stay has been extended till November. I intend to travel to US on holiday (though through a different POE) in October and I will go and see my wife. She would have spent about three months when I am about to enter the US. Is there anything to be worried about?

    I got 5years B1/B2 visa this August as I was suppose to attend a conference, which unfortunately i might miss, due to some other commitments.
    Now I am planning MY FIRST TRIP to US in April 2018 (which is more than 6 months from now) for vacations. My Questions are:
    1- Is there any restrictions that I have to plan my first trip with in 6 months of issuance of my visa?
    2- I was suppose to attend the conference, which is B1 but now I am planning for vacations, would there be any issue?

    Hi
    My sister is a PhD student in the US, started three years ago and her kids are with her studying in US schools. She came for a visit to Saudi and when it was time to go back to US at the airport they rejected her children’s visas, telling her there is a problem and they cannot leave with her. They have i 20s. Mind you that school has started in the US and they missed about a week. What might be the problem with their paperwork is my question?

    Hi,
    I am currently in the USA with an ESTA and I have been accepted for a masters program to a University in the USA. Also have been awarded for a fellowship.
    I have to go back to apply for a student visa in my country. My concern is that my parents live in the USA and the sponsor for my studies will be a family friend.
    Also I don’t have any brother or sister at my country. I have been visiting USA 3 times now.
    What are the chances that my student visa would be rejected?

    Hello!

    I am a Canadian that has an interview for immigration to the US on August 21st in Montreal. Finally! I have not been able to find any concrete answer, if after the interview I am able to enter the US, prior to receiving my passport and Visa by courier. I do have an enhanced drivers license, which permits border crossing into the US, land only. I have read they recommend to not make travel plans and so on, but nothing states clearly if you can or can not enter until you do so with your visa. I ask as my mom is flying into Seattle immediately after my interview. Her trip and tickets were purchased months prior to knowing our interview date. Any assistance, greatly appreciated!!

    Hello,

    I am a Filipino, I have a B1/B2, 10 year multiple entry visa. I have been to the US 3 times already, first visit (year 2000) – 1.5 months of stay, second visit (year 2005) – 3 weeks, third visit (year 2013) – 3.5 months. Never overstayed. And after 4 years, I am visiting the US again this coming October. I plan to stay for 5 months this time, so I will be returning back on April 2018. I will be touring around New York, and visit my friends and relatives in other states as well. Do you think it would be a problem when they find out I’ll be staying for 5 months? I already have a return ticket as well. Thanks!

    Hi there,
    My name is Tahira, i am an international medical graduate, i have B2 visa and have visited USA twice on that visa, both times i talked to immigration officials at airport and exptented my stay to a year by showing them documents of preparation courses for my USMLE exams.
    During my 2nd stay i met another med student and after 6 months we got married, then we searched Internet to apply for AOS, but he is a student just like me and we could not find a joint sponsor. So our application got denied. We decided to reapply after some time when he will start working.
    I still have one year on my B2 visa. My question is can i still use my visitors visa to go back for my interviews and exams. Is there a chance of denied entry to US because of a denied AOS application. I didn’t overstayed any of my visits.

    A friend just told me that if I have previously been in the USA on a non-immigrant work visa then I am no longer eligible for the visa waiver program, and that instead of applying for ESTA I must apply for a B visa before trying to enter the USA again. Is this true? He says he was denied entry for this reason, but I can’t find anything online to back this up.

    I have lived in the USA for the past 5 years on visas (J-1, E-3, and O-1) and I am planning to enter on a tourist visa for a visit soon, I had assumed the ESTA would be fine

    Thank you for your help!

    Hi! I am a Saudi citizen who recently finished studying on scholarship in the US. However, I miss my friends and want to visit them for a few months back in the states, I’ve already applied for a tourist visa through the American consulate in Saudi Arabia. Upon receiving my visa, will there be any reason for them to deny me entry in the US?

    I’ve had multiple friends who completed their studies in the US, but upon receiving their tourist visas, they were denied entry at the gate. When they asked why, the airport employees did not disclose the reason. When my friends returned to Saudi Arabia and asked, the American consulate did not provide any reasonings either.

    If in any case this happens to me, what are my options? If I opt to a lawyer, how does that process work? How much does it cost to hire a lawyer?

    If I get refused a visa is this refusal for life or is there an appeals process,?

    Hello,

    I’m from Chile, but I work for a Canadian company in differents projects and the last year I have been about 10 times in USA.
    I go with my B1/B2 visa with multiples entries, since I do not receive any compensation from any USA company and also my work is just advisory.
    However, the last time I go the border officer written in my passport “Advised need H1, L or E visa”
    I cannot get any of those visas, due to I do not work for any American company and I do not want to stay here.

    Do you think I will have any issue if I go back to US with the same visa? Is it just a suggest or I have to change my visa to go again?

    Hello,

    Good evening.

    I have valid US visa ( B1/B2) for five years ( till February 2021) that recently I obtained for second time after expiring my earlier VISA. I visited twice in USA and stayed 15 and 28 days respectively. Now, I have intention to stay in USA for 5/6 months in each time to enjoy my old age leisure time and also keep me under treatment as I have been suffering for prolong Asthma.

    Do you feel that it will be problem for me to stay 4/5 months each time in USA having my valid VISA ? What is your advice in this connection ? I would like to return on time before expiring my time will be determined by the Port of Entry ( Home Land Security)

    Hello, I have family that came from Italy into LAX. A pregnant mom who is a naturalized citizen of Italy, her husband and their son (who are both Italian Citizens). The son and dad were allowed into the U.S. but the mother has been sitting in the airport since last night because apparently they are telling her she needed a different Visa as a naturalized citizen. She is very stressed and pregnant. She had to stay at the airport. Is there anything she can do. They are not going to let her into the U.S.

    Hi I have travelled to the United States when I was underage with my parents. So I had no say, we overstayed for a couple years. But I left the US before I was 18. Its been a few years now and I’m thinking of visiting for about two weeks. Can I go or will I be denied entry?

    Hello back in 2001 i entered USA from UK on a B1/B2 Visa whilst i was there i met a company owner who said he would be happy to sponsor me to work for his company so i filled paperwork and paid the fees with my application i sent my passport as i thought they would be stamping it if approved. It took around 1yr to return to me i was stuck in USA but it was ok as i lived with a friend where i just helped around house and done a lot of volunteer work helping the Christian Shrine and i had savings anyway so that wasn’t a problem. My visa came back denied 1.Because i didn’t file it from my (home country). and 2. The Driving job was seen as any American could do (so not specialized for them to warrant approval). So after i received my passport back i made plans to leave USA and return to UK for 2 weeks in hope i could return back using my B1/B2 for a fresh 6 month term and keep legal within the system but i was rejected on entry at US airport boarder control and given a 1yr ban from entering basically they just said i had used visa to much and didn’t really see me as a bad over stayer as they knew immigration had my passport all that time. Now 2017 many many years later i am still in UK i run a company here and simply want to visit my friends for 3 weeks in Arizona but when i go on the ESTA site to fill out the forms it says was i ever rejected entry, i am unsure how to deal with this as there is no comments box if i tick yes then it will be denied if i tick No it will very likely show up when i arrive in US airport boarder control and id be denied entry, but i was only denied entry because i mistakenly using B1/B2 to much, it wasn’t like it was expired though. so just to clarify my first visit was 6 months second visit just over a year. Please can you advise my best steps i would really love to go back to see many of my very good friends.

        Hey, I’m a German citizen, my wife is from the us. We have petitioned for me to obtain a green card in January. Until now there has been no progress after the initial receipt of the petition. I’m now considering to go visit my wife in the states but I’m afraid I will be denied entry, due to my status as a beneficiary of the petition. What are the chances of that happening and what would be the consequences of a denied entry for the green card process? Thanks

    Hello, my sister and I are currently living in Maryland, United States with our F1/student visa. Sadly, on February 10 our visa were terminated because of failed transfer. Right now, my sister and I are applying to a new school that will give us a new sevis number and I-20. But before we attending the class that we are applying to, next week we both are going back to our country Indonesia. My question is, is it possible my sister and I get denied at the u.s airport while we are re-entry with our new I-20 since we were out of status since February 10, 2017? I would appreciate it if you could provide a response as soon as possible. I very much appreciate your time.

    Hi

    I was issued a US B1/B2 visa 20 days ago to attend a conference. I did not mention that someone else (my wife) will be travelling with me in my DS-160 application. After my visa was issued, my wife also applied to a B2 visa and booked an appointment in a different consulate, because an appointment slot became available there. During her interview, she said that she wanted to travel with me to celebrate our first anniversary and that I already have a valid visa. My wife got rejected under section 214(b) and 9 hours after my wife’s interview, I received this email from the Consular Section: “This message is to inform you that your U.S. visa has been revoked by the Department of State, due to information that became available after its issuance. You will no longer be able to travel to the United States on this visa. If you wish to travel to the United States in the future, you must schedule a new visa interview at a U.S. Embassy or Consulate near you to determine your eligibility.” In the document attached to their email, it is mentioned that my visa was revoked under section 214(b). I contacted the consular section to give me a specific reason and this is their response: “Thank you for your email. The best we can say about your case is that, per the notification below, the Department of State has decided to revoke your visa after receiving some information that we at Consulate may not be even aware of. That said, it does not preclude you from applying for a US visa in the future.”

    I have been to the US, UK and Europe before I was married and I never overstayed or did anything wrong. I’d also like to add that I have been applying for DV lottery for 2 times both in 2015 and 2016. So, now I am not sure whether DOS revoked my visa due to my wife’s intention to travel with me or because of the DV lottery.

    What should I say if I apply to non-immigrant visas in the future? Are they going to ask me about the reason for my revocation? Should I refrain myself from applying to the DV lottery in the future?

    Thanks for your answer

    My son has just been deported from the USA, the reason given was that he was making a third consecutive 90 day visit with only a short break away at home in the UK between each trip. He has a valid ESTA and UK passport. He has been living with his American girlfriend and they are going to get married later this year. He has been there looking for a permanent job and has regrettably not been successful in securing one as yet. His girlfriend can support them financially. He was told that he will not be able to return to the USA unless he and his girlfriend have got married. She is applying for a marriage licence in the USA this week. Will he allowed into the USA to get married or will they have to get married in the UK and then return to the USA as a married couple?

    Hi, my cousin is an Italian citizen, actually she just moved from Peru to Italy a couples of months ago since she got her italian citizenship because of her late dad. She was planning to come to the U.S for vacation only so she applied for the ESTA and got approved. She arrived to the San Francisco airport and there they stopped her. They had her for about 5 hours and they interrogated her about her coming here. She said that she was coming for vacation only and that she was going to stay with my aunt. The weird thing was that the officer called my aunt( we were waiting for my cousin at the airport outside) and they asked her some questions. They saidthat everything was fine and that they were going to let her out in about 15min. We waited for about 2 more hours and nothing happened so my aunt called back to the number she had in her phone when they called her and they said that she was put in a plane back to Italy. They put a alien number in her passport and more numbers like a code. I would like to know what she can and has to do now if she wants to come back in the future? Thank you

    Hi,
    My name is Anthony and I am from Nigeria.
    On the fifth of March 2015, I was issued a (b1/b2) two years multiply entry visa into the US. My first visit was on the 17th March of the same year, and that was to Anaheim California, for a training. I spent fourteen days after which I returned to Nigeria. On my second visit which was sometime in Nov of the same year, I went to Houston Texas, to see my parents who are both legal permanent residents of the US. My original intention was to stay for 3 weeks and then return to Nigeria to continue work, but circumstances changed because my both parents got really sick and needed proper attention. I was the only person available to take them for appointments with their doctors since my brother with whom they were staying works as an engineer offshore and spends most of his time there. I had to make that sacrifice for the two most important people in my life who sacrificed all to ensure I had a very good upbringing. In the process I also got stressed and needed medical attention and because of this my doctor asked me to spend some weeks for treament and observation.
    My point is, all these circumstances which I didn’t expect forced me to extend my stay of three weeks to three months. Now, I intend to revisit my aged parents to spend my leave with them for a month but feel that since I stayed three months I may have an issue at the POE. What do you think? I would really appreciate your response.

    Note: Six months was stamped on my passport at the POE.

    Hello,

    I plan to travel to the USA at some point this year on a non-immigrant visa for the purpose of studying in the US.

    Yet I have two things that may potentially cause me some trouble:

    1) Have applied for the green card lottery some years ago, wasn’t shortlisted and that was it. Could this possibly make the US authorities suspicious that I plan to emigrate to the US (have no such intention, and have signed and submitted a form that I agree to return to my country of origin for two years after completing my studies)?

    2) Some time ago the police searched my home and was called to а police station for an interview. No “arrest warrant” was issued against me, thus under local law this is not considered an arrest, no police registration form was filled for me, and no charges were brought against me and I was instated in the investigation as a “witness”. Thus I even do not have the right to know what exactly do they investigate me for. My local lawyer stated that “If they had any reason to seriously believe you have committed a felony, they would have brought charges against you immediately and placed you under arrest, they didn’t do any of these so calm down”. So can I sincerely answer the question “Have you ever been arrested” with “No” and could this still not finished investigation be a reason to be denied either a visa or entry to the US?

    Hello,
    I have a tourist VISA valid until 2026. But I have a court case going on in my country, and because of this, local passport officers follow some prosecution procedures to put a note on my passport like this “This passport is valid to travel to the following countries (USA, …) from … to … only”.
    Will I be denied entry because of this note in the observation page of my passport? .

    Good day.
    I applied for my b1 visa for work purposes. The embassy asked me for a police clearance certificate, as I declared on my DS_160 application that I had been arrested when I was younger due to a minor charge. After a while, I was granted a 5 year visa, but with a waiver on it. My question is, what are the chances of me having problems at the USA airports because of this? Can they still refuse me entry?

When my brother passport was scanned it showed our annual income which was very less nearly 3k dollars but we have assets of 20crore In Indian rupees even during his visa interview he said that our family income is low but we have assets despite of saying that they granted visa for my brother. We took bank loan of 30lakhs by mortgaging our property and sold one of our property and credited the balance in my brother account approx 11lakhs. He even carried 1000 dollars of cash and 3000 dollars in travel card. He took a demand draft of 7692 dollars to pay to the college. When he showed to the dd to us customs they said that the dd was fraud. When my brother asked to enquire the bank they said they won’t make any international calls and even said that the bank documents and savings all are fraud because all the savings dd and loan were taken from the same bank and said that u came here to do outsourcing Jobs not to study and revoked him for 5 years. But we are feeling sad about this because all our documents bank savings dd were all correct but they dint listen to us. Can u I help us……..

    I am a UK Citizen, i have a history of overstaying in the US for 2 years because my father suddenly died and my mother became critically ill. I applied for extension but the notice came beyond my requested date of extension, causing me to overstay.
    Now my concern is, if i want to visit US. Will there be no problem since I am already a UK citizen? if I will be applying for the waiver program, what are the chances/ possibilities that I will be granted? How strong is the reciprocity of the two countries.
    Thank you

    Hi! My boyfriend, is a UK citizen, has a home in Ireland, works for a company in Italy that has shipped him to the USA on Esta. He is only in the US for 80 to 85 days to service equipment and do inspections (seems the machines still have to pass European standards) and goes back to the UK for 5 or 6 weeks (so he has never overstayed or broken any laws). He has done this for almost 2 years, as it was quite successful. The company paired interests with a US company, and were in the process of getting a contract drawn up, but they 1st wanted to obtain his visa seems his stays here are promoting sales and service of their product (he is an engineer)- and he was interested in continuing the relationship with myself so we thought things were on track appropriately (I am a US citizen). Upon returning the US on new years eve, he passed the irish office, but the US office denied him entry. He attempted to call a lawyer but being a holiday and a Saturday, he was unable to get ahold of anyone before leaving to go back to Italy. The lawyer called him that night. He is worried about the time this may take, and his Italian company is on holiday until next Monday (the lawyer should call him tomorrow, but he needs his employer to write a letter showing proof of work, and they are on holiday for the entire week). He had deadlines to meet in the US in 2 weeks from today. If he fails to meet those, it likely may forfeit a huge contract and cost him the opportunity to work here, causing the Italian company to keep him in Milan until further notice. Obviously, due to that, he would like to get back as soon as possible (and of course- we both would like him here for personal reasons). Do you have any idea how long this could take? I would think this was just a precautionary stop, due to holiday travel and conjestion. They accused him of working in the USA and he explained the situation but they insisted that he spends too much time here (and he had the proof that the buyers pay for hotels and food, and his employer gave him a letter already, but it was dated 16 months ago, and he has never been asked for that proof so he hasn’t updated it).

    I got my US visa B1/B2 in 2014 and traveled in 2015 and came after spending one month. In 2015 , i decided to travel again. i was going to New York, I had a stop over at Atlanta and when i wanted to enter the person asking question asked me how long i was going to stay in the US, I answered him a month, though on my ticket i booked 3 months. He said he was not convinced and handed me over to an officer. They ordered for my luggage and searched through and found my credentials and divorced documents. i tried to convince him that i was going to come back, he said no and that he was sure i was coming to look for work. After so many hours,he came back and told me he had called the person i was coming to meet in the US and confirmed i was actually coming to work. so , i was put in a plane back to my country Nigeria. I felt so bad. on getting to the airport, i got my passport back and found out that my visa had been cancelled and some numbers were written on it. i got a lawyer and on their response, i was told that i had the intention of getting employment and by my admittance, that i have not been barred from applying again that i should reapply at the US embassy to re-enter again.
    I am writing to you to let me know how to go about it and getting my visa back.

    A friend’s green card was stolen in 2014,when he was abroad and that affected his return to the States although he finally reported to the police, and they issued him police report and he as well got an affidavit from the court, he then reported to US embassy in that country and he was told to start over the visa process, however, few weeks ago, the green card was found and returned to him. Can he go ahead and book his flight back to US, would he encounter any problem from custom or immigration officers at entry?
    Thanks, as I expect a positive response that would aid his decisions.

    Hi
    I recently got a B1/B2 Visa to attend a training program in Texas. The program has been cancelled however. But i really intend to go to the US since i am on vacation. Will it be possible to enter the US by using an invitation letter from a relative, maybe to attend a ceremony or is the reason for my B1/B2 visa already in the border airport database. In which case i will be caught for lying and my visa cancelled? If it is possible, is it okay to change landing airport from Texas to Maryland?? Please provide your expert advice.

    My wife is Norwegian and I am American. Initially, she traveled here for the first time through a European visa waiver program and stayed for about 2.5 months in Oct. 2015 before returning home to Norway. About 3 months later in Dec. 2015, I visited her in Norway and brought her back with me. We purchased a round trip ticket for her to avoid suspicion any suspicion of overstaying.

    5 months after that in May 2016, we got married. Unfortunately, right before my wedding day, I got laid off due to lack of funding at the startup company that I worked for. Because I wanted to take the opportunity to self-study before finding a new job as a software engineer, I’ve been out of work since my wedding. That is 6 months. I thought that I would study for a short period and find a new job before applying for the green card…obviously it was a stupid idea as I did not expect it to have dragged out for so long, totally my fault.

    Recently, my mother-in-law in Norway had a motorcycle accident and broke her leg, so my wife was yearning to go back to see her, and so she left the US just couple days ago on Nov 2. This means, she was in the US continuously from the final week of 2015 until just yesterday, around 10 months. She came in twice to the US both on the European visa waiver.

    I understand that she is not subjected to a 3 year ban and that we are eligible for a waiver, however I don’t meet the condition of “extreme hardship”. I think there was a recent update to the policy that the “extreme hardship” condition can also be applied to the foreign spouse, however I still don’t think she meets that condition. Having that said, I’m trying to find a way to get her back as soon as possible without waiting for 3 whole years. Any ideas?

    Hello from Haiti,
    In June 2016 my wife traveled to the US and gave birth on September 29th to our daughter in California. During her prenatals checkup the hospital asked her to apply for Medical which she did. She explained to the Medical officer that she is a visitor and will stay just for her baby birth, the officer said that it doesn’t matter. They gave her the Medical and she used it at the hospital. At that time we did not know that it was prohibited by US immigration law. When I traveled in October 1st to see her I was question by the US immigration officer because I didn’t have a return ticket (i bought just a one-way ticket). While they were questioning me I mentioned that another reason for my trip was because my wife was already in the US and I was traveling to take her back home. The first reason I mentioned was for meetings with my employer in California (which is true) as I am their representative agent in Haiti. The conversation turned bad with the immigration officer as when she checked my wife on the system she realized that she was in the US for a while, then she immediately asked if she was there for pregnancy and I said yes. She responded saying that we will have to bring all receipts that prove that we paid for the pregnancy and that we didn’t use any type of insurance, if not we will be in BIG trouble. I said okay. She also said that I had 1 month to leave the country (but we left in two weeks). What I didn’t mention to her is that my wife gave birth 3 days ago, using Medicaid – as we didn’t know this prohibition law. On Sept 15th my wife and I and the baby flew back to Haiti without any problem. Now my wife and I are in the situation where we don’t have any receipt (we talked with the hospital but hospital bills were so high – over $30,000 – that we could not pay it at the time). I also need to return to the US next year for meetings with my employer. But I am afraid that I can be denied entry to the US if I do not show any receipt. What do you think about our situation? What consequences this matter can bring to our future trips to the US? What is your advice?

      Hello Ravi. The border immigration officer will have the discretion of accepting the visa in your old passport or not. It will be important to have all your documentation with you.

    Hi. Last time I was in the US was in April. At the time I arrived I was hold and questioned by the Immigration. Maybe because when I applied for a visa I put it on my application that I have a fiancee which is true. But he is not american he is a filipino citizen as well and currently living in the Phil. I was planning to stay for 30 days in at that time, after Immigration questioned me they released me and gave me a month and 2 days to stay in the US which is they based on my returning ticket.. Does it mean I am flagged already because I was hold in the immigration? I was planning to return this coming december to spend a short vacation and Xmas with my brother. Should I get hold again the next time I visit in Us? Should I be worried about what happened to me the last time? I am only planning to stay for 12 days this coming december..

      Hello Joanna. I understand how stressful it can be to questioned by immigration. In order to minimize the amount of questioning that you might receive the next time that you visit the US, you may want to travel with a properly prepared Immigration Entry Package that explains the entire situation to the reviewing officer. I am going to suggest that you contact us to make an appointment to talk with one of our immigration professionals who will be able to plan the best strategy for you.

    Hi, I went to the US twice in 2012, once in 2015 and in April this year, each time for no more than 15 days. Im planning on going in November and I already booked a return ticket for May (almost 6 months).
    Im staying with my mom since I recently got divorced, so I dont have a lease contract.
    I want to now if they will give me any trouble if I mention I want to stay for six months when I enter the US?I travel quite often and Im planning on travelling for 2 years around the worild an the reason I chose US to start is because my cousin and aunt live there and I can stay with them instead of paying for a hotel room. Im not planning on working or anything like that, but im scared they wont let me in if I say I want to stay for six months

      Hello Nina. Thank you for writing to us. You did not mention what your citizenship is, but it sounds like you are Canadian. As a Canadian you may stay in the US for up to 6 months in a calendar year, however that is at the desecration of the US border officer. The officer must be 100% convinced that you will not over-stay in the US and you will not look for work while you are in the US.

    Hi,

    My husband was travelling to US on H1B. He changed employer in India and his employer applied for the change of petition .He was told he can travel with USCIS receipt however at the POE the border protection officer stopped him and said the USCIS receipt is not sufficient to enter. He also revoked his previous visa as they had found that the previous employer was not having any clients. So now what are the chances for my husband. Will USCIS decision be affected because of this? Also does he have to go for the visa interview again at consulate in India? Will it be a drop box or a personal interview. Please advise. He is very genuine and have a dream to work in USA.

    Good morning. I came to the US two months ago for a 4- month stay since I’m self employed in Brazil and have planed for this long period off. This is my 6th vacation here and this time around I met a person (American citizen) and we wish to get married. Since it was unexpected, my whole life is still in Brazil and there’s tons of unresolved business. If we get married here and I go back early December to settle things in Brazil without applying for residency, can I be denied re entry by CBP? Will the CBP Officer know about my marriage and deny my entry to stop my reunion with my spouse? I’m saying this because we really want to get married and have plans for a life together but will not have time for adjustment of status procedures before I go. Should we not get married and maybe apply for fiancé Visa maybe early next year?

      Hello Jana. Thank you for writing to us. US immigration can be very complex and strict. A visitor visa is one of the most difficult to obtain because the reviewing officer needs to make 100% certain that you will return home after your visit. Many people who attempt to apply on their own, face difficulties. If you need help with your application to make sure that you are not making any mistakes, and so that you will have a legal team taking care of all the matters that may arise, then please contact us to book a consultation with one of our US immigration professionals.

    I am a Canadian that was working in the U.S.A on a TN1 Visa which is good for 3 years.
    After 2 and a half years working I lost my job, I should have left with in two weeks of losing my job back to Canada.
    I didn’t and stayed well over a year in America with my girlfriend.
    I am currently back in Canada and the oil industry is starting to hire again and I have a few opportunities to get hired in the U.S.A.

    My questions are…
    1. What are the odds of me getting flagged while applying for another TN1 Visa about over staying? From my research they may or may not even notice, if they don’t notice just get my Visa and count my blessings.
    2. If they do notice or bring up questions about my previous Visa what should I do or say?

    1. Muga Rajbhandari

      Hello Dan. Thank you for writing to us. The TN visa gives you the permission to work for a specific period of time for a specific employer performing a specific function or job. When you lost your job, if you started working for another company, that could be serious violation of your visa. As a Canadian, you are permitted to stay in the US for up to 6 months in a calendar year. It is not clear from what you have written, how long you stayed in the US after you lost your job. As soon as you have a job offer, I am going to suggest that you contact us to make an appointment to talk with one of our US immigration professionals who will be able to plan the best strategy for you, that includes explaining the situation to the reviewing border officer.

      Hello Natalie. Your income level must be at least 125% of the federal poverty level. This number is changed every year by the federal government. If your parents are already in the US, you can proceed with your sponsorship provided that they have legal status. Otherwise they must be outside of the US when you commence.

    Hi,

    My husband and I was granted B1/B2 (Valid for 1 year – traveled once ) visa in 2005 and again B1/B2 (valid for 5 years-traveled twice) in 2006. While our visit visa’s were valid till 2011 I applied for F1 visa in 2007 and entered the USA as a student in Jan 2008. My husband visited with me under his B1/B2 visa stayed for 5 months (did not over stay) with me and returned back home in June 2008.

    While he was back home, I attend my classes and worked in the college as a student aid. In October 2008 I got a serious stroke while traveling to college and I lost my speech for almost 12 hours. I was admitted to a hospital by college staff and they had mispronounced my name as I was unable to communicate. The hospital records carry my name differently. At the time I didn’t have insurance or money to pay my hospital bills. My husband immediately visited me leaving his job back home in November 2008 and was taken treatments till May 2009. I took the spring semester off and was recovering from the stroke when we were asked to settle hospital bills and had no way getting the money. My husband and I were offered a day job by a friend who was running a subway restaurant and we were paid by cash. In April 2009, both of us traveled back home to bring money for my next semester and to renew my DS-119.
    The unfortunate happened when we tried to enter back in to the US on 16th May 2009. I was travelling with my F1 visa and my husband was travelling on his B1/B2 visa as he was going to return back home after settling me in the US. At first we were granted the entry and later when we were going out of the airport one of the officers followed us and requested to check our baggage which we allowed without hesitant. He found our certificate folders and suspected that we were trying to find work there. When he started questioning we spoke nothing but the truth and agreed that we both worked at the Subway restaurant to pay off my hospital bills in our last visit. We never had proper documents to prove I was hospitalized as my name appears different in all hospital documents. I have a letter issued by the doctor to my college to request for a semester off. He immediately cancel our entry and sent us to further questioning with a BCP officer where he questioned us separately for a long time and said he will issue a 5 year band for both of us. It has been past 7 years now and we are still devastated by what happened. My husband’s sister is a US citizen and we would like to visit them soon.
    Both of us have new passports now and have stable jobs back home with adequate financial support. Should we apply again? or do we still need lawyers assistance?

      Hello Nisha. Thank you for writing to us. Your situation is complicated because of the apparent time that you were working without a work permit.

    I have a B2 visa to be expired on December 14 2016, I plan to visit on Dec 09 2016. I read the info from US travel that I just have to present at the port of entry before visa expire, so I guess it should not be a problem. But my passport will expire on November 02 2017. The regulation is passport must be valid for 6 months beyond intended period of stay. My question is, is there gonna be a problem when BCP officer check my passport? (If they give me 6 months admittance; probably 9 June 2017, that means I don’t have 6 months to expiry date validity)

    My intended period of stay is until January 06 2017 only.

    I have a 2 years multiple b1/b2 visa since 2015 but was too busy with my education that I couldn’t travel to the states. I eventually travelled in May 2016 and had 6 months stamp at the POE but I left after three months which was in August 2016 but I’m planning of going on a short visit in November this year because my visa is to expire April 2017.
    The last time I was at the states I entered through LA aiport because my uncle who sent me an IV is based in California but this time around I intend to go through Atlanata because im going to see my friend and not my uncle and he resides in Atlanta.
    I’m just worried and curious about the kind of questions I might receive at Atlanata port of entry because some people actually say it’s risky because I left in August this year and again because I’m changing my port of entry from LA to Atlanta.

    My brother was denied entry into the US. He has a 2 yr business travel visa to the US. At his previous entry he was given a 6 month stay permission by customs. Before this was up, he had to attend a wedding outside the US, stayed a month and tried returning to the US and was denied entry. Their reason was that he was believed to be working in the US. He was not working. They obviously cannot prove it since it never happened.

    He was denied anyway. Its been 3 days and we have no idea where he is. Scant to zero communication from him or customs.

    We are worried sick. Shouldn’t he have left the country by now?? As far as I know, he hasn’t committed any crime.

The border officer has the sole discretion to allow a foreign national into the country regardless of the visa that might be present. Your brother may have been denied because of an explanation that your brother gave that the border officer may have misunderstood. What is important right now to get this misunderstanding cleared up with the US Citizenship and Immigration Services. I am going to suggest that you and your brother contact us to make an appointment to talk with one of our immigration professionals who will be able to plan the best strategy for your brother after understanding all the details of his case. You can book an appointment by calling us at 1-855-886-8472 or online at http://goo.gl/JFZqPm

    Hi! Last week, my family (me, husband and daughter) were denied entry into the US while attempting to cross the border from canada. My husband and I are philippine citizens while daughter is a US citizen, she was born in the US 3 years ago but we did not overstay our visa and paid for everything ourselves. We were not allowed into the US this time because I am pregnant again. We were asked if we overstayed last time and if we received welfare from the govt. we said no and another immigration officer said “yeah they can do that” but in the end we were still not let in. Officer told us we shouldn’t attempt to enter the US again while I am pregnant but once I’ve given birth, we can go back the US again. Do you think we need to apply for a waiver the next time we want to go to the US? Our passports and visas were not stamped. We were just given a note which we surrendered to the canadian border that said we were denied entry due to “immigration issues”. Now, we have nothing that says why were not let in.

    My boyfriend came to the USA as a Hungarian citizen with his domicile in Romania. (he has dual citizenship), however, he was denied entry and was held up at the airport with no contact for 48 hours. He had completed the proper paperwork (ESTA in his case) and he came to stay for a period of 3 months, with a return ticket. I believe he got sent back due to not having sufficient $ on hand for a period that long. I want to know the possibility of him returning to the States. This was his first time trying to enter the country. I want to have him with me and would do anything I can to bring him over here. I am an American citizen. Please let me know what the proper procedure is to have him come here again. Thank you.

    Hi,

    I am an Indian citizen.

    A few years back I modified the first name in my passport to a shorter version (which appears in all my other academic and official records). I had studied and worked in the US with my older passport, which had the longer version of my first name. My previous travels to the US were also with the older passport (bearing the longer first name). So, a few questions in this context:

    a. If I travel to the US in the future, if asked by US immigration or in any document, do I need to declare the shorter name in my new passport as a new name? I am confused because I am not sure if shortening ones first name is same as a “name change”.

    b. I am planning to carry my old and new passports. Should I carry any other documents which establish proof of my name change so that I don’t face difficulty while entering the US.

    Thanks much for your help.

    Regards,

    Swami Gangadharan

      Hello Swami. The name on your passport must match your the name on your birth certificate. Any discrepancy will cause you problems when you cross international borders. You must get in touch with your immigration office, and have your name corrected.

        Hello Muga,

        Thanks a lot for your guidance and prompt reply. In my birth certificate, only my last name is listed as my name. This is typical for South Indians since we don’t really have a concept of first and last names. Usually, the father’s name becomes the initial (which is typically not expanded). In my case, I adopted my father’s name as my first name when I traveled to the US for higher education since expanding the first initial was insisted upon. This is the first name that I modified into a shorter version in my new passport.

        As things stand now, would an affidavit stating the fact that I had changed my name in my passport be sufficient to convince the US immigration officer? Also, I can carry US Social Security Card, which contains my shorter first name, if that would be appropriate. I have a bit of concern here since I have heard that carrying “extra” documents sometimes wrongly conveys an intent to stay back in the US. Please advise.

        Thanks and Regards,

        Swami

    I was travelling from Canada through the us to Central America (had a flight out of Florida, but booked separately not a connecting flight)
    When I went through US customs I was denied entry because of a time several years ago that I travelled to the states to meet a man I met online. He paid for my ticket. The customs officer knew about this and after several hours in questioning and accusing me several times of being a prostitue (kept asking me how much I had been paid to go visit him, to which I kept responding I wasn’t paid anything) he asked me to prove my employment by showing the past four months of pay stubs, which I didn’t have as I was going back packing for several weeks.
    I tried asking him what this meant for me, but all I got was ‘you can come back and try again with the appropriate employment documentation’
    Does this mean if I bring pay stubs I will be fine the next time I go through the us or will I always be refused entry because of this incident?
    It was embarrassing and horrible to be accused of being a prostitue, and although I never want to go to or through the states again, I am planning an international trip and all the cheap flights go through the states.

      Hello Michelle. Thank you for writing to us. You have not said, but it sounds like you are a Canadian citizen. A Canadian citizen can travel to the US for up to 6 months in a calendar year. However the decision to let you into the US is still up to the discretion of the border officer. Now that you have been flagged on your permanent record, you must always make sure that your trips to the US include return tickets to go back home. If you are backpacking, you should be able to show your full itinerary of where you will be going and where you will be staying, and show that you have enough funds to support yourself while on your trip.

    Hello,
    Kindly evaluate my case. My wife traveled to US in 2010, had a baby, but being the first child, the medical situation required was critical than the one we earlier planned: which was for a private practice personnel to do the delivery and we’ve made some payments to her. But as stated, the situation required special care and the midwife refereed her to a bigger hospital. The hospital financial officer told she can apply for grant which as the time she replied she’s not a citizen but was advised she need not to pay as she’s qualified. Baby born, she returned to her home country in about a week prior the expiration of her 180days period of stay. In exactly a month, my wife and my 3month old girl had to return to US to continue my daughter’s medical appointment with the pediatrician because she had an”hype-extensive leg condition” as quoted so the leg has to be covered in cast, also she was born breached via CS.
    Long story short…they were refused entry because of my wife did not declare her pregnancy at the initial entry to which she explained she didnt intend to wait till birth period even but she fell in the apartment of her host and it took a longer period before she can be taken to hospital which consequently caused for the baby to breach and advised against long preiod of travel and stress if she wants the baby alive. Now what are the chances of my wife re-entering US again, i intend for both of them to visit US at some point soon. Thank you.

    Hello. I have a question regarding Visa annotations.

    Do the annotations restrict or limit my travel in the United States?

    At the moment, my Visa’s annotations are:

    Family Trip
    December 2016
    Bellevue, Washington

    However, I have already booked my tickets to land at a different point of entry which is in Los Angeles (travel plans have slightly changed since my Visa’s delivery- but not that much different). Plus I told the interviewer that I would sight see other states before and after Seattle as my trip to Washington is only one in four states I’d like to visit during the holidays (but majority of the trip will be spent there). Also, does the annotation “December 2016” only mean I can stay there for one month?

    If the annotations do limit my travel, does this mean I should re-apply for a new visa?

    I hope to get these questions clarified as soon as possible.

    Thank you very much,

Our planning was to stay for a 1.5 months in US and then moved directly from US to Australia. As I got the immigration visa for Australia. I shown the Australian visa, however officer not satisfied. According to officer, he was saying that when I came for a interview I planned to come immediately and you not come as per plan, secondly I had a job in India but due to move to Australia I resign my job and that is the reason that you have no job while during interview you had a job. I shown him the valid reason that I am moving to Australia so, I resigned. During this point officer not satisfied. Thirdly, he was saying that now your parents become citizen in a year so he will put petition file and you will stay here….finally, officer has withdrawn my visa and suggest to reapply as per new situation.

    Hello and thank you so much for your page. I came with my children to the USA in may 2012. all of us had B2 visa. We had to leave by November 2012 but we stayed. My oldest son who was 14 years when we came, left US on July 2014. He left voluntary, being 16 years old, and without any legal process. on August 2015 I married an american citizen and my daughter and I, got the green card on July 2016. My son’s visa is valid till January 2017 and we were told by a lawyer that as long as he didn’t accumulate any unlawful presence due his condition as a minor, and his visa is still valid we could have him visiting us. My husband bought his tickets, and we sent him an invitation letter, stating that we want him to be with us for our incoming anniversary wedding celebration. My husband mention in the letter that he will take care of my son (his step son) in every needed aspect while he stays with us. And committed to make personally sure, my son will go back to our country once the two weeks visit is done. But today I was told for a different lawyer, that he will be denied to enter the country and probably send to jail or deported and permanent barred. I’m terrified, we dont pretend him to stay, he doesnt want to stay since his girlfriend, university and majority of family are in our country. But i dont want him to be arrested or deported or permanent barred. He is just an 18 years boy. We just want him to spend some time with us. His flight is for next august 9!!! I dont know what to do. Should I ask him to stay there and dont come to visit us? I really appreciate any help.

The reason of my student visa denial was because my sponsor was the family I was working with back when I was an aupair. I would like to know how long you are supposed to wait to reapply for an esta and get approved. The lady was very nice at the embassy and took time to explain me that being denied for a student visa doesn’t mean I won’t be able to apply for anything else.

    I travelled with my wife to give birth in the US September 2015. The CBP officer who interviewed us at the port of entry was very harsh in dealing with people so I was scared and hid some facts from him which he eventually found out. He asked our purpose of visit and I said vacation. Haven declared $10000 earlier he was sceptical and searched us thoroughly. He found some evidence of communication between my wife and a gynecologist hence discovered we came for child delivery. This made him even more harsh in dealing with us. I apologised for lying to him. Although he allowed us in eventually, he said he placed a comment on my record and said i have to contact US embassy in my home country and explain things to them so they can correct my record else I would not be allowed entry into US ever again.
    Please I need your advice on this. Could he have truely placed such a comment that would deny me future entry? Should I contact the US embasy in my country? Would’nt contacting the embassy further complicate issues?

I have recently looked on the county’s website and can not find my ticket, using my name or docket number. I would like to go back to Califonia this year 2016. Will I be denied entry?

    But now again my sevis terminated because i did not like the course the college offer and asked if i can transfer. They terminated my i20 saying not attending classes, did not pay tuition fees and not reported. This all happened in 10 days, The college was rude. I asked them if they can provide few more days to pay the tuition fees. Without word, they terminated i20 and asked to leave the country within 15 days. Now i got new i20 from another college for degree in physics which is my passion. The problem i already passed the 15 days grace period and leaving the country in few days and planning to re-enter.

    Hi,

    I’ve had a girlfriend in the US and went to visit her around four times a year (one to four week visits) for the past couple years.

    We broke up now and I went to California for vacation, where the immigration officer told me I might be denied entry next time because my frequent visits suggest to him that I might be coming there for work.

    This is of course not true, but now I’m somewhat afraid of my next vacation in the US. Is this just a case of a grumpy officer? Or is it documented? Am I “flagged” in the system? What can I do to ensure I don’t get denied entry? I am fully prepared to take with me any kind of proof: pictures, messages, whatever the officers need to see. Any advice?

      Sorry, just to add: I’ve never had any issues with entry to the US before. I’ve also told previous officers about my then-girlfriend and was granted entry after a couple questions at most. My paperwork, Visa, whatever has always been flawless. No criminal record or anything else.

      Sorry, addendum number two: just to emphasize, the officer did grant me entry this time. He was basically just warning me and now I don’t know if that means I’m flagged and should expect this next time or whether he was just trying to scare me.

      Hello Ingo. Thank you for writing to us. You did not mention what your nationality is. When an immigration officer mentions something to you, you can be assured that a note has been entered into your permanent record, and that you will most likely be questioned even more on your subsequent visits. As long as you are not working in the US in any way, you should not have to worry. If you want to take extra precautions, you can have an Entry Package prepared for you by our law firm that would explain the circumstances to the immigration officer that you meet at the border.

If the border officer feels that there is a risk that you will overstay again, they may deny you entry. I suggest that you travel with a entry package that is prepared by a legal team that will explain the conditions of your overstay, your ban, and why it will not happen again. I am going to suggest that you contact us to make an appointment to talk with one of our immigration professionals who will be able to plan the best strategy for you.

    I have got my f1 visa revoked at Abu Dhabi at USA immigration. They interviewed me for 20min and said your school was not good . So they asked me reapply again so I did applied to another university ( southern Arkansas university). Today visa officer asked me the reason why you’re previous visa has been revoked . I said that the school I have selected was not good so they revoked it and visa officer said it is not the reason and said me to apply again .I want to know what might be the reason

      Hello Krishna, A study visa is one of the most difficult to obtain because the reviewing officer needs to make 100% certain that you will return home after your studies are complete. Many people who attempt to apply on their own, face the same problem as you.

    Hi, I am a Nigerian. I hold a valid b1/b2 visa thst expires nov 2016. Last year January I had a baby and his bills were outrageous. Used medicaid for the baby but paid aĺ my own bills. Last week i applied for F1 to go study and consular officer asked if i seeked medical care in Us. I answered yes. She said at my interview b4 visa i said i wasnt pregnant. Told her i wasnt sure at time of application.
    She asked for bill and i showed her drs bill and hospital. She said my bill was incomplete. She asked if i was pregnant now. I told her no. And she asked sure. I said i double checked b4 coming ccos of the last time. She just handed me a 214b letter and said if i reapply and lie about anything i cld destroy my credibility for life. She didnt cancel or revoke my b1/b2 visa.
    Now this was actual events of my last trip. I travelled to US on 18th jan 2015. Baby was born 20th jan through ceasarean weighing only 800grams. Stayed in NICU for 5 weeks. Social worker said he was entitled to ssi and medicare as his bill wld b heavy to bear.
    Now i want to go study. Do i stand a chance of getting the F1 if I reapply?
    Secondly, if i travel with the b1./b2 visa for holiday with my baby,will i be denied entry?

    I was approved my F1 visa a few days ago. The interviewing officer was very harsh and disrespectful towards me and almost denied it because I was honest and said that I’ll be living with my boyfriend (he’s a citizen) while I’m over there for the 3 year duration. He said that he thought I was just using an F1 visa to become a citizen eventually of which I explained we are returning to Australia upon completion of my degree, where we met and have connections and relationships. I’m going over purely for the experience as well as to get an awesome education – it’s just very convenient that my boyfriend is a citizen and I have this opportunity. He said they may deny me entering into the US upon arrival because of their ‘suspected intent’ if me. Can you give some advice to avoid denial of entry? I’m panicking after the level of harshness during my visa interview – it left me incredibly shaken.

    Hi there,
    In 2011, I obtained J1 visa to study a semester exchange in the US. The DS-2019 form states the cover period from 14/08/2011 to 13/12/2011. The I-94 I received had an ‘admited until date’ of ‘unknown’.

    I left the US on 14/01/2012 which is 32 days after the end date on DS-2019 form (I have 30 days grace period). I am unsure if I did accidentally overstay by 2 days ?

    Back then I was holding my Vietnamese passport and traveled on my Vietnamese passport.

    Now, I had become Australian citizen (holding dual citizenships – Vietnamese and Australian now) and plan to visit US under VWP. I already got my Esta approved.
    Will i get into any trouble when I arrive US ? Is there anyway I can check exactly if I was listed as overstay ?
    Please advise me. I truly appreciate your help.
    Thank you very much

    1. Muga Rajbhandari

      Hello Van, It does not appear that there is an overstay. To be considered an overstay, you must have remained in the US for a period of 6 months or longer beyond the authorized duration of stay. J-1 visas typically do have this ‘grace period’. You should not have any trouble.

    I have a question in regard to being a U.S. citizen and trying to gain entry into the UK via London. Hello I was recentely denied entry into London being a U.S. citizen. My boyfriend lives in the U.K. and I didn’t have a return ticket, and was embarrassed to tell them I met him online and it would be our first meet so I told them he was a family friend. After interrogation and chastising ( I have mental diabilities diagnosed with major depressive order and anxiety) which put me in a spot of discomfort from the very rude immigration officer at Heathrow, got sent back to the U.S. after she found out that me and my bf met online. Now I am trying to get back to the U.K. for a couple months even a month if possible and wondering if since I was previously denied just having a return ticket this time won’t cut it. I know U.S. citizens usually don’t require visas. Just wondering if I come forward and explain the scenario that 1. Was under pressure with a diasability 2. going for a brief stay with a ticket 3. show funds in my bank if that is enough or if I should apply for a visa…also if I apply for a tourist visa how likely is it to be denied because I was denied entry? Should I go in person and speak to a british consulate? Any advice would be appreciated as I am dieing to go to London as I originally anticipated. Thanks

      Hello Rainy. Your border entry refusal will be something that you have to address with the UK border officer the next time that you attempt to enter the UK. Not having a return ticket and not telling the truth to the border officer raises a flag that your intentions may not be to return home to the US. I suggest that you talk with an immigration lawyer in the UK who might be able to help you gain entry on your next visit.

    Hey there, I am planning to go and visit my girlfriend in California from Canada in late September, It will be my 2nd time in America, First time flying with a brand new passport, I have no criminal record or anything, The stay will be between 5 and 6 months which I’ve read is the maximum time you can stay in America. Do I have anything to worry about at the airport? I don’t have a huge amount of money but I am 26 and she will be supporting me while I’m there.

    Hello, I have an inquiry regarding previous denied entry into the US. My friend and I were traveling with a large amount of cash which we were happy to declare however upon doing this and informing customs officials of our professions (we both work as exotic dancers) we were interrogated and detained for over 16 hours, phones confiscated. Boarder security were convinced that we were coming over to work as prostitues which is completely untrue. The purpose of our trip was for for a holiday and to have some elective surgeries performed. They didn’t seem to care too much about the money but really pushed the prostitustion angle. After 16 hours in detention and having been searched and threatened with possible jail time I was completely broken and exhausted. I desperately want to go back to the states as I have friends living there but I am terrified of going through that again.. I have absolutely no prior convictions had never had a run in with any law offical until then.. It was traumatising. My passport has been stamped and they took a mugshot of Mysore and my friend before we were escorted back onto our plane.. The entire time we were not given back our phones and weren’t allowed to make contact with anyone who knew our travel plans. Can you advice of possibility to return? At the time we were travelling from Australia on a visa waiver esta. I now know I am ineligible to apply through that.

    (Should also include that whilst under duress and being scared into possible jail time that I admitted to recreational drug use) I am not a dependant user but did admit to have trying cocaine and marijuana)

    Hello, and first of all thank you for having a web page like this that offers plenty of information.

    My situation is the following: I have graduated in May of 2016, and have applied for OPT beforehand. However, my OPT was still in process when I had to leave the U.S.

    Today, my OPT has been approved, my EAD card is finished and I am in the process of receiving it. However, I am concerned if I will be able to re-enter the U.S. I intend on renewing my F-1 student visa in a week or so, and then travelling back to the U.S. I have a new I-20 (signed less than 6 months ago), my OPT is approved, and I have a job offer.

    What do you think my chances of being denied entry are, and do you have some tips?

    Thank you so much,

    Hello
    I am from Bangladesh. I have a B1/B2 (5 year) visa. So far I used it six times to enter the US and got one year left. Presently, my wife is in the USA with F1 visa. I have two daughters, one is a US citizen and other is under F2 visa. Now they are staying in the USA with their mom.
    Recently, I got a scholarship for undertaking a master’s degree at a university in the USA. I applied for F1 visa from my home country. But I have been denied the F1 without showing any particular reason. But the visa officer didn’t cancel my B1/B2 visa (that got still more than 1 year validity). My question is as I am denied to get the F1 visa, now can I enter USA with my existing B1/B2 visa ? It will be highly appreciated if you answer my question.

    I have now Swedish passport and want to travel to the US. I applied for ESTA and got approved.
    Since having ESTA is no guarantee of entry. I am wondering if I should try to get a visa anyway.

I am a chartered accountant in India. While being over there I decided to appear for CPA exams and I cleared one exam . I came back to India after six months but before expiration of my entry in November 2015 . I went to USA again in late December 2015 to give my rest of the exams .The immigration officers questioned a lot in ABU Dhabi because I was coming back too early. They searched my suitcase and stuff but they gave me entry for 4 months . I stayed there until April 2016.
    I still have two exams to clear and I have a friend living over there who is getting married in October . I want to visit there to attend the marriage as well as finish my exams . Please advice me if I will be allowed entry again or not ?

    2.5 years ago I came to the U.S with an Israeli passport which had a 10 year U.S tourist visa, I was allowed entrance with 6 months of stay.

    After 5 months I’ve sent a request for a an extension of stay.
    I was told that until I get a reply from the immigration I am allowed to stay inside the U.S.

    It took them 4 months to reply, saying:

    1. The extension request is declined and that I have to leave immediately,

    2. Although no one touched my passport or the visa, they wrote some vague sentence about reapply for a Tourist visa in my home country.

    I left instantly after 1 day and was on the plane out of the U.S

    Althoguh I left the moment I got the reply, due to the circumstances of waiting for this reply, I stayed over the original 6 months I was given.

    I also have a second – European Union passport. yesterday I filled the online ESTA form and was Authorized to arrive to the border of the U.S .

    This time I will be coming with a different European union passport and authorized ESTA form.

    Is it possible that since I was denied an extension before, and although I left right on time, I will be Denied from entering the U.S now?

The court gave me a ACD and my case was dismissed and sealed. I only had to send them a prove of 42 hours of community service. That happened july last year, I was in the US with a ESTA visa (waiver program as I am italian) now i want to travel again to america, using the same esta visa program, when i was doing the online application there is one session that asks if i have ever been arrested or convicted by any crime of moral turpitude. Well, I was not convicted of anything as my case was dismissed and sealed. But I was arrested indeed that night, but when i searched what crimes of moral turpitude is I don’t think assault (because of a simple fight) would fit as crime of moral turpitude…. I don’t have time anymore to apply for a B2 visa as my flight is in 3 weeks…. do you think I would have any problem at the border?

      Hello. Thank you for writing to us. The ESTA has a zero tolerance policy. Although you have never been convicted of a crime and the incidents do not appear to make you inadmissible, you should not misrepresent yourself by saying “no” to the question. By selecting “yes”, your ESTA may be rejected; it will be left up to the discretion of the border immigration officer. If your ESTA is rejected, you will need to apply for a visa.

How ever in the section when it asked if I have been found with illegal drugs which I then answered no. Which was a lie because I have been found twice with cannabis and then fined. This isn’t down as a criminal record how ever it will, I’m sure be on some kind of record. My worry now is that I will be refused entry when I land in the US.

    Friend of mine got there bags searched and devices went through at us border basically admitted to being a recreational drug user then was denied entry on basis that they lied on their visa to a question about drugs. They weren’t really told anything about whether they can return to u.s or whether it will have ramifications for visiting other countries.

    For example are they able to travel to asia or will the run into problems do countries share these type of details.

      Hello Louisa. Your friend is certainly flagged in the US immigration information system as being denied entry. That will stay on his permanent record and he will need a waiver authorization to visit the US. Provided that your friend was not arrested, he will not have a criminal record, and there for traveling to Asia will not be a problem. You must keep in mind, that any travel that goes through the US may be a problem in the future.

    Hello I was denied entry into the USA at the boarder crossing I am Canadian Citizen. They said that they will withdrawal my application for entry. I have a trip booked with friends to go on a cruise to the USA. I did not receive any paperwork form the boarder security garde. Will I have an issue when I try to go on my cruise?

    Hi I entered the USA in 2011 on a visitor visa my purpose for overstaying was because I was in a toxic relationship and wanted to get away from him.

    I had a student visa and overstayed from September – January ( almost 4 months ). I should have left the country in September because I couldn’t attend the university anymore.
    I flew back to my home country and flew back to the States where i got denied at the airport.
    I applied for a visa which first got confirmed and a week later declined.

    Since then ( almost 2 1/2 years now ) I have never tried to apply for a visa or tried to fly back to the US.
    Can I ever enter the US e.g. holidays in summer? What are the requirements for it.

We are planning to get married in the near future and he wanted his son to be present for the wedding.

    While application in process I went back to my home country Germany for personal reasons… without the advanced parole.
    I know I have abandoned the AOS application but that is fine by me as I have to stay in Germany for a while. I would like to visit my husband in September 2016 for a 2 weeks vacation.

    Will I experience any problems entering the country with my valid Esta because I abandoned the AOS application?

    Hi,
    I am a UK citizen, 25 years old and have been rejected my visa waiver because I have travelled to Iran twice in the last 5 years. I have visited America three times since 2011, and after my first trip to Iran and had no problems.
    Since the new laws have come in place, I’m now having to apply for a b2 visa. My reasons for travelling to Iran is because I am married to an Iranian man and we visited family and the second visit was for a cosmetic procedure (rhinoplasty) for myself. Me and my husband are no longer together but we haven’t yet divorced. But we live in seperate cities.
    I’m very anxious that my b2 visa will be denied because I have visited Iran. Or if it is granted that I will be denied entry at the border. I am only hoping to go for 10 days to visit friends in key west (the place I always visit) and have a holiday.
    What do you think my chances are of my visa been granted?
    Many thanks.

Can I obtain a visa to honor the occasion? Also I wasn’t told if I have been banned or not, I have gone through the transcript over and over again and I haven’t seen anything with regards to being banned entry into the states.

      Hello Abigail. In all your documents and in all your conversations with a border officer it is important that you always tell the truth. Your denial does not mean that you are banned for life. It just means that you need to be able to have the proper explanation and justification when you attempt to re-enter for the wedding. From what you have written, it seems that you probably will need either a I-601 or a I-192 waiver. It is hard to tell without knowing the full details of your case.

    Hi, I’m a UK citizen born and bred but have an Iranian parent. I’ve never been to Iran, I used to travel on the VWP but due to recent changes suggest I might be ineligible to use the VWP. I have to travel for work conference and have done the right thing and obtained a B1/B2 visa, which I was given instantly with no restrictions. All my paperwork, company details, invite letter is all in order and I have significant financial and family ties to the UK.

    My questions is CBP may ask me why as a UK citizen I have a VISA, which seems a reasonable question, I will answer as above due to Iranian heritage and confusion over new VWP rules etc. Will CBP be happy I have a VISA issued by a consulate or will they take issue with any of this/ over rule the fact I have a legitmate VISA and can clearly evidence my business travel and ties back home?

        Thank you, may I probe a little further in that as I have a visa are CBP usually happy and to go along with the issuance (and have faith in I’ve been vetted)of this, as you say providing any questions I’m asked or copies of my invite stack up etc as in can I presume I’ll be admitted as I have the visa, or what was the point.

        How confident are you I won’t inadvertently cause an issue by just having the visa ? The online guidance says the new rules on VWP don’t stop travel but just means those that no longer qualify for VWP need a visa. That surely means I’m more vetted than most ESTA passengers and in my eyes should make the CBP officer more happy with my admission. Do CBP by in large trust and admit passengers with visas? I guess they must go along with their issuance as those with waivers or inadmissibility would never get in as the reason they have them is because they have a reason they would usually deny them entry and CBP must probe this and still let them in as they have the paperwork and waiver. D

        I’m just looking for some reassurance. If I’m asked why I have it I will happily say I have an Iranian born parent. I’ve never been there and was born in the UK etc I’m just worried that this on its own, despite having a visa, will cause me to stand out through no fault of my own.

      Hello Haya. It is always stressful when you encounter a border denial, it must be even more so when you are pregnant. You did not say what the citizenship is of your sister, if she had a visa for the US entry, not how far along she is in her pregnancy. So here is a general view. US Border Services need to make sure that someone is not going to the US for the expressed purpose of having their baby in the US and thus getting immediate US citizenship for the baby.

      Hello Larry. You have a lot of responsibility as caregiver for your uncle. It cannot be easy having to deal with the stress of a border denial. It is possible to apply for a I-192 waiver that would allow someone with an inadmissibility (previous criminality) to enter the US. Your uncle’s situation is complicated because of his unfortunate poor health. You may be asked for proof of healthcare coverage during his trip to the US, and proof of finances. The US border services do not want to take the risk in case that your uncle gets more ill in the US.

                  Its a year now but i wish to reapply,could it be possible or not.

    Hello I was denied entry into the US at the Philadelphia airport. I had a b1/b2 visa, but the immigration officer thought I was coming there to work. They called a contact on my phone and confused the contact to admit that I was coming there to work. So I was advised on a voluntary withdrawal of entry. My visa was stamped WD. Please can you tell me how possible is it for me to get another visa and clearance on entry to the US?

      Hello Jay. Thank you for writing to us. I know how frustrating and stressful is is to be denied entry at the border. We can certainly help you. There are US immigration waivers that we can apply for that will get you back into the US. The most important thing is to be able to explain clearly and accurately what happened and give US border immigration the confidence that you are not going there to work. We have been practicing immigration law for over 18 years and are considered to be one of the top immigration law firms in the country specializing in US and Canadian matters. I am going to recommend that you contact us to make an appointment to talk with one of our immigration professionals who will be able to plan the best strategy for you.

    Hello,
    My brother came to USA from India in 2010 and his Visitor visa was stamped with visa Withdrawn and was sent back by next flight. The reason was he was carrying some educational documents with him too and they suspected his intentions were to study. Can he visit US again ever? Would you be able to provide him with any entry packages just to visit US?

    I am married to a US citizen and have a valid B1/B2 visitor visa since 2012. We got married on my last visit to the US (Dec 2015) but did not start filing paperwork yet since I am still in school. I plan to visit the US on my next school break (July 2016). Should I be worried that I will be denied entry?

I am going to suggest that you contact us to make an appointment to talk with one of our immigration professionals who will be able to recommend which supporting documents you should have with you when you cross the border. It is always wise to have a formal letter prepared by a professional that explains your situation so that it is clear to the border officer.

          Hello Ashok. US Customs and Border Protection officers are mandated with a very difficult assignment; making sure that everyone who enters the country follows the rules that are set out in the immigration laws. I am sure that it is possible that some people who are denied entry feel that they were treated unjustly. I think that with the thousands of people that CBP officers see in a day, that the number of unhappy people would be very very small.

    We have new ESTA’s approved and have travelled to us on a number of ocassions – since reading in the press all the latest changes can the ESTAS be revoked at any point prior to travel ?

    Also if we have ESTAs and arrive in the US can we still be denied entry ?

    Im a little nervous with all the changes and 1 of the travellers has old criminal records which have never caused any issues for us

      Thank you for writing to us Liz. You have a valid right to be concerned. US border services have every right to revoke a visa at any time if they feel that the person is a danger to the country, is coming in under false pretenses, of was not truthful with their application. The criminal record of one of your travelers will become a problem at some point, and when it does it will surely lead to inadmissibility.

      Thank you for writing to us Shaik. I am always amazed at how many people think that immigration is so easy to navigate through that they do their own paperwork and submit it, only to find that there is something wrong with the application and that they have been denied. Study visas are the most complex of all the visas because immigration officers need to be absolutely sure that your intention is to go back home after you finish your studies. A proper study visa application has to answer all the immigration officers questions before he even asks them. If you make another failed attempt at getting your visa it can lead to a five year ban.

A denial is a serious matter. It will stay on his permanent record. The two week time frame does not give you a lot of time to remedy the situation, but I assure you that we have dealt successfully with problems more complex than this. We will be able to apply for a I-192 Waiver to allow your brother in law to come into the US so that he can fulfill his role as Godfather for your daughter, but you MUST act quickly.

This Wednesday in flying to the US and I learned that I need a visa now because of my one week stay in Iran. I doubt I can get a visa before Wednesday. I will try. What should i do? Board the plane and hope to be granted access? Is this rule already established? It’s really new and maybe they still decide on a one-by-one case? They didn’t communicate about when they implement it prior to suddenly implementing it last Thursday… Any help/ideas??

        I am in the same situation as Carolin. I am an Australian in the UK. I just found out about this new condition today. I have flights booked for this Friday, 4 days time. They were booked back in early January before the new conditions came into effect. My ESTA from a previous visit is still valid (double checked today). I am concerned that I will be denied entry.

        Have you heard anything more about the implementation of this new restriction? It is too late to apply even for an expedited visa. I tried to visit the US Embassy but required an appointment. The Australian embassy was unable to assist or advise.

        I can’t believe this has happened after diplomatic relations were re-established between USA and Iran. I feel like I’m in Wonderland.

            I have applied for a visa this morning, and am seeking an expedited appointment. But it seems highly unlikely that this will work in time for my trip.

            Are you able to email me your contact details to the email I have provided the website? In what capacity do you act? Would I be able to contact you if stopped at the border? The law seems pretty black and white but the advice given is not at all clear.
            This is the best given about my situation on the CPB FAQ site:
            “What should travelers do if they did not receive a revocation email, but have travelled to Iran, Iraq, Syrian or Sudan since March 2011? Can they still travel under the VWP?

            We recommend that affected travelers apply for a U.S. nonimmigrant visa well in advance of desired travel to minimize the chance of delays. ”
            http://www.cbp.gov/travel/international-visitors/visa-waiver-program/visa-waiver-program-improvement-and-terrorist-travel-prevention-act-faq

            They could have said “you cannot travel” but it doesn’t. It almost implies that those delays would be at the border but that the law wouldn’t be imposed in this circumstance? People in my situation could not possibly apply for the visa “well in advance”. I’m at a loss, but am pretty sure I won’t have a visa in my passport by friday…

      Thank you for writing to us Rose. Although there are no specific regulations prohibiting pregnant foreign nationals from entering the U.S., entry is allowed or denied at the discretion of the admitting U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Officer. If the CBP Officer determines that you are likely to become a ward of the government (meaning that the government must provide medical care because you do not have medical coverage), you can be denied entry. When determining if you will be allowed to enter the U.S., CBP Officers take into consideration the date your child is due for delivery and the length of time you intend to stay in the U.S. In addition, they want evidence that you have sufficient medical insurance to cover any medical necessities while you are in the U.S. and that you intend to return home.

    Am from Bahamas and my husband is us citizen. We got married last year July 20, 2015 and we know each other’s since 2010. We haven’t yet put in for our paperwork, I was in the state since I got married and never return home until last year October 2014 for my grandmother funeral.
    After the funeral I went to the airport and I was questions, ever since I was in college immigration stops me and questions me. Every time I travel back and forward I always get stops and they question me.

    After they question me, Immigration gave me until November 10, 2014 to stay in the stat, that was my limited stayed in the state. I didn’t realize that was date they give me to stay. when I say that I mean for example when people travel have I-94 form and immigration normal stamp it to say when u must return or they write it one of them. So I didn’t pay that no mind until I got to the state I forget about it. I stayed to the state for few months until March 2015,
    I came home the first week in March 2015 because my mother was sick and I stayed home for about 4 weeks and I was able to go back to the state to my husband. When I did go to the airport I didn’t had any problem or anything.

    Now I had an emergency I had to go back home again because of my mother was in the hospital April 20, 2015 and on April 22, 2015 she passed away, I stayed home until the funeral, my husband came for the funeral. We stay until May12, 2015, we both was leaving to go back to the state; we made a stupid mistake listen to family and friends. They told us that we can’t let immigration know we married because we haven’t done the paperwork. When we go to the airport we must act as we don’t know each other’s. So we did. I told my husband to stand few step behind some people in case I have to be question he will know if I have to go in the back to be questions. Surely I was questions and had to go in the back. I was in the back for like 1 hour. My husband called my cousin to find out if I have left the airport with them and they said no, he waited and waited, he end up calling another cousin of mine and was talking for a while tell her how was questions and I have come up stair as yet, he said he ready to go down there and tell immigration I am his wife, but my cousin stop him and told him NO don’t go down there cause it might be worst, he said okay and stayed. Immigration didn’t let me go they said for me to go back to the state I have to get a visa. They asked me a lot of questions, as they ask questions, they type it in the computer and they even ask if is married and them no because I was scared because they might not let me go because I haven’t file my paperwork. During that time I was pregnant, I have the baby girl in the Bahamas and she is now 3 months.

    I don’t know if it means denial but I got a stamp on my passport and it have WD which is withdrawn. Application for admission withdrawn 212 (a)(7)(A)(I)(I)

    .
    My question is what do I need to do? Have anyone have that problem or similar to that?
    Can I apply for wavier, then apply for visa to go to the state and start the paperwork?

    Hi,

    I was denied entry to the US in 1995 as my boyfriend at that time had been offered a job and we were too young and innocent to know that we were not allowed to work in the USA without the right visa. We are Europeans and were returned back the very next day after the immigration officer realized we had the intention of staying and working. I am now a married woman settled and living in the UK (have a house and pay for mortgage) and my son many times has asked us to take him to the US on a holiday. I am so scared of the situation I lived in 1995 that is enough to put me off to try and re-visit the USA. This happened many years ago and I never tried entering again. What are the chances of being sent back to the UK again? Inspite of all these years do they still have my records? My son will be travelling to NY in 2016 to present a school project and we would like to attend this event? Will it be possible for me to do so?

      Hello Mati,

      Thank you for your inquiry. I am glad that you are reaching out to us to get the proper guidance instead of purchasing a ticket and making travel arrangements and arriving to the US and being denied entry. There are many foreign nationals that have 10 year bars issued as a result of inadmissibility that do not know how that it has even been imposed until they arrive to the port of entry. We can definitely determine if you are someone who has that appointed to them and how to have that waived. But before we can proceed, I would need to learn more details about you and your experience in the US. Kindly complete this form for me Mati http://www.visaplace.com/immigration-assessment/ and you will be contacted once it has been reviewed. MF

    I was convicted of a dangerous driving charge, it happened on March 29th, 2013, and was convicted June 1st, 2015. I was 18 years old when it happened, and now 20. I am a permanent residence of canada, and a UK citizen, I have been to the U.S. Many times before, but now that I am convicted, am I still able to enter the states? Thank you very much for your time

    I was denied entry in the fall for having Cuban goods in my car (I had just gotten back from Cuba into another province and was going to take a trip into the US before heading home) They gave me the option of surrendering my souvenirs and continuing into the states, or keeping everything and driving back across to Canada, I chose to keep my things and went home. I’m planning a trip to the US this summer, will I get denied because of it? There is no denied entry stamp on my passport.

      Hi there. I’m hoping you guys can help.

      Last year I got caught with less than 3 grams of Cannabis on me in USA.

      I recently got rejected by a customs officer in USA upon arrival back.

      As when I filled out my ESTA a question asks ” Have you ever violated any law using distributing illegal drugs?”

      I said NO as my lawyer informed me at the time of when this incident happened that I was NEVER convicted. So I should answe NO. So I was giving false information from my lawyer by the looks of it.

      I was offered a Plea deal to which I excepted and completed and the offense would be cleared from my record after 2 years.

      I am now not aloud to enter the USA under the “Visa Wavier Programme”

      I have to now apply for a Visa to enter. But I read that if I get denied for that I am banned from entering USA for up to 10 years.

      What should I do ???

        Hello Duley,

        Thank you for your post. I cannot tell you how common this is, as we’ve handled hundreds of cases with similar issues to yours. It also makes it worse when a lawyer had ill-advised you. You definitely need to apply for a Waiver to be eligible to go back to the US, but it is not an easy or straight-forward process…complete this form for me http://www.visaplace.com/immigration-assessment/ as it will tell me everything I need to know about your case. Once I have reviewed it, you will be contacted and notified on what can be done to overturn this negative decision. MF

      Hello Joan,

      Thank you for your question. I am sorry to hear about the trouble you had at the port of entry…this is more common than you think. There is a possibility that you could be subjected to questioning when traveling again as any incident that occurs at the border is documented and made available to any designated official to view. Although you have provided me with some details about the matter, I would still need some more information to asses the situation accurately. Kindly complete this form for me http://www.visaplace.com/immigration-assessment/ and you will be contacted once it has been reviewed. MF

    Hello,
    I was just arrested for Dangerous Driving (completely innocent and am almost 100% certain the case will be dropped altogether). My court date is in a week from now and I am to leave on a trip to USA in a little under 2 weeks. My lawyer is representing me in court and will attend any pre trails/court hearings prior to the case being resolved. My question is, with a pending Dangerous Driving charge, as it is not a crime involving moral turpitude, will I still be admissible to the USA? I was previously charged with Assault but it was Withdrawn on a Peace Bond and I have traveled to the USA twice since that without any issues.
    Will this pending Dangerous Driving charge make me inadmissible to the USA? I couldn’t see them sending me back to Canada for this (as its not a charge like murder, rape, robbery, etc) but I want to make sure before I fly over 7 hours to find out they won’t let me in!

    Thanks in advance,

      If you still want to enter the US, the best option would be re-applying for a waiver of inadmissibility. We can certainly assist with this, so please don’t hesitate to contact us to setup a consultation with one of our experienced immigration lawyers.

    Hi,
    Im hoping someone can help me. I have an Iranian friend who has been trying to come to USA for 3 years now. He has went through everything and tried every thing possible. He even hired a lawyer and was finally granted a tourist visa. I didnt realize until recently that even if you get a tourist visa that its only good for leaving your current country but not guaranteed that you are allowed into USA at port of entry. My friend was suppose to come here in mid June, it’s now December and I havent even heard from him since we last spoke online the day of his flight. What could have happened? If they are denied and dont want to go back to their country, they put them in some kind of camp? Is that true? And how long do they have to stay there? How long until they are allowed to contact family/friends? I am sooo worried about him, he is like family and I cant imagine what hes going through. Its not like him to contat me if he were able to so I know something is very wrong. Does anyone know about what happens if they are denied entry to USA.. what options they are given? And if they are held somewhere, does anyone know the name of the organization? I really need some help, thank you!

      Hello Cynthia,

      Your friend could have been denied entry to the US. Immigration officials at the border can deny anyone entry into the US under certain circumstances. It is possible your friend was sent back to their home country or is in a detention center in the US. Please feel free to contact us with any further questions.

      Hello Samuel,

      You could try getting a new ticket for a flight that departs within the next week, as that seems to have been an important consideration for the officer. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any further questions.

    My fiance’ (a UK citizen) was denied entry to the US in Vancouver, BC on 12/9/2014 (yesterday) for not having significant ties to his home country (ie: does not own property and is currently unemployed). He has been booked on a flight back to London on 12/10/2014 (today). He is part of the Visa Waiver program and has made this same trip at least 8 times since 2009 and never has had this brought up. Is there anything that can be done to overturn this before he is sent back to the UK? I am a US citizen born and bred in Oregon but I do not know what I can do to help him in this situation. They treated him as a criminal when he never has not returned to his home country.

      Hello Kim,

      Thanks for the question. I’m sorry to hear that your fiance was denied entry to the US. The border officers do have the authority to deny entry to anyone for any reason they deem to be appropriate. At this point you should get in touch with one of our experienced immigration lawyers who can help to prevent him from being returned to the UK, and we can maximize his chances of gaining entry to the US by addressing those issues of unemployment and lack of property that you mentioned. Where is he staying when he goes back to the UK-that could be considered his property even if he is living with a friend or family member and paying some rent.

    Hi.
    I have been in the US since july on the 3 month turist visa (ESTA) in september I left to Columbia and thereby extended my visit another 3 months. I am an athlete who travel the US and play tournaments and train. In December I am going home to Denmark for the holidays and I am planning on coming back in january to play a few tournaments and do a roadtrip with two friends. I am a bit afraid to get denied as I have been here in almost 6 months already.
    But what happens if I get denied? Do they send me home the same day and do I have to pay for the flight? and will it have any consequences on the long run to get denied?
    Thank you very much for taking the time.

      Hello Rasmus,

      If you get denied then you will typically be sent home on the next flight if you arrive by plane. If you overstayed your previous visa then you may encounter difficulties entering the US, however we specialize in cases involving inadmissibility and can help you maximize the chances that you will be permitted to enter the US.Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any further questions.

IT WAS 30 YEARS AGO. HE CAME BACK WITH A DIFFERENT PASSPORT NOT USING THE LAST NAME BUT ONLY THE MIDDLE NAME AND DIFFERENT BIRTH DATE. HE IS A US CITIZEN. BUT SOME ONE IS THREATENING TO REPORT THIS.

      Hello Jackson,

      Thank you for the question. If your friend is a US citizen, it will be very difficult for the border officers to deny him entry into the U.S. even if there is some sort of mistake or error in some of his paperwork. That being said, it is still theoretically possible for your friend to be denied entry in certain circumstances, and if that occurs, please don’t hesitate to get in contact with us as we would be glad to assist him.

    My partner has a criminal record for drunk and dissordaly and a caution for possessing a small amount of class a when he was younger.
    He applied for a visa and attended the interview in london at the embassy.
    He was told as it was a while ago everything was ok and the issued him with a 10 year multiple entry visa into his passport.
    The visa was a B2 visa
    We flew to the states on a family holiday and at the airport he was questioned and refused entry.
    The officials were saying something about him needing a waiver.
    He was interviewed , refused entry and we came home on the same plane we went there on.
    Please help will he be able to reapply and go back for a holiday as they did say we could reapply but I wasnt sure if the refusal wall have ann impact on future decissions.

    Hi, I have been 68 days in the US with visitor ESTA and I need to come back to Europe for only 7-9 days to come back to the US. So my ESTA would not be over when I come back but I need to stay for 6 weeks.

    I have an “Invitation Letter” from my US office and I will carry with me my flight dates, my applicable contract in the Netherlands.
    Do you think I might be refused to get back in?

    Thank you

They were sent back … What can we do to get everything back so they are able to come since they have been back twice since that over stay and just now being denied?

      If you are denied at the US airport they could send you right back. The option of going to another country may not be available so would not count on that. The best thing to do is to make sure you have your paperwork prepared in advance before making the trip to the USA. Michael
