As the subject suggests I overstayed a work visa to the US in 1994, the exact overstay would have been less than 2 weeks, I have not re-entered since however I am looking at going back this year for a 2 week holiday.
At the time my daughter was 5 years old and so listed on my passport and visa. When she revisited the US in 2009 she was stopped in immigration. Not refused, just asked a couple of questions and then carried on. She has since applied for a redress number and has been a few times with no issues.
I have read a lot about a 10 year ban. Is this automatically added? I.e. I will have served mine now? I understand that you only start accruing those 10 years from the age of 18 which is why my daughter was stopped?
If I am over the 10 years can I apply for ESTA and answer no to the "have you overstayed" question?
Is there anyway of actually checking my status in their system?
