I overstayed for 18 years in the US. I had an H1B that expired in 2004 that abled me to get an SSN. The expiration of my H1B wasn't my fault but because of technical reasons. I continued working for different employers and never missed paying and filing for my taxes. I have no criminal record. I'm not in the US any longer. Is it possible or just a suicide for me to apply for a new US visa under my maiden name. If possible, any advice? Thank you
It's just suicide. Forget about visiting the USA any time soon.
Immigration is about you as a person, not about the name or passport you use. Application forms ask about former names and former passports. Lying on an application form to try to get around a ban is the sort of thing that gets you banned for life.
