J1 Visa overstaying?
I have overstayed my J-1 visa by 6 weeks beyond the grace period end date in 2016. Currently, I am applying for a UK tourist visa. I haven't received any official warnings during this time. How should I answer this question "Have you been deported, removed or otherwise required to leave any country, (including the UK) in the last 10 years?"
however, I ;ve read this "For F-1 and J-1 students admitted for D/S, however, unlawful presence will not begin until U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) or another relevant government authority makes a formal determination that you are here unlawfully. For example, if you overstayed 90 days before receiving a formal determination from USCIS that you were in the United States unlawfully, those 90 days would not count towards the 180-day period and the clock for unlawful presence would begin on the date USCIS made that decision. These determinations are often made when an F-1 or J-1 student files a change of status application after having overstayed."
and if I want to check my status, who should i call?
