I had planned a flight to Indonesia out of the US, but plans changed and we went to Mexico instead. I heard that when you go to Mexico by land it doesn't tell the US border system that you left the country... does this mean it might say I overstayed next time I come back on my ESTA VWP visa?

I will be staying for more than 3 months in Mexico and then I have a flight leaving from San Francisco, which will make me enter the US again, will I have a problem?

  • To clarify, you traveled to US on ESTA, drove into Mexico, will be in Mexico for more than 90 days before trying to re-enter the US by land? I would think it is likely you will have issues trying to re-enter – Midavalo Jan 22 '19 at 4:03

    How did your plans work, were you able to get back into the US without issue? – Midavalo Aug 3 '19 at 2:56
