This question already has an answer here:
I've been searching and came across to a lot of very useful information already on the VWP and implications on staying longer than 90days under the VWP. I'm fully aware of the fact that you can stay for a maximum of 90days under the VWP, and I have read a lot about other experiences but I didn't came read any topics about my scenario which is as follows.
I'm currently staying under the VWP in the US and my return flight back home is scheduled on April 5th. As I am planning to stay another 3 months in the US I considered the following solution to stay for another while.
If I would fly to Colombia by the end of March and come back to the US, lets say on April 2nd, before my scheduled home flight. My understanding is that in general, leaving the country to Colombia and coming back would count as a reentry, and if I get admitted in to the country under the VWP I would get another 90days. After the admission I will cancel or reschedule my flight home to a later date (within the new 90 days).
However, what I couldn't find is: - Do I get a new reentry, even though I reenter before my initial scheduled home flight? I would assume that my trip to Colombia counts as "leaving the country" for my first admission to the US? - If yes, can I change my initial flight afterwards without having any troubles? - Does anyone has any experiences with this and would you recommend to change my home bound flight before or after the reentry?
Hoping to hear some experiences from people who did this before. As mentioned, I did read a lot about this and I am aware of the risks, but I'm rather hoping to hear some experiences, especially suggestions about if and when to change my home bound flight would be very helpful.
