I am currently in US with B1/B2 Visitor visa. Plan to depart US through Mexico by car. And then depart Mexico for another South American country. All within 120 day limit of B1/B2 visa.
When entering Mexico (by car) there is no passport control and nobody stamps my passport with departure stamp or stamp of entry to Mexico. And for B1/B2 Visa terms, Mexico or Canada is not considered a significant departure and time spent in Mexico will count towards staying in USA on B1/B2 visa.
If I overstay my Visa will be canceled and I am not lively to get another US visa again, it's a serious offence.
How can I prove to U.S. that I did not overstay my B1/B2 visa if there is no record of me leaving the US?
I can see one of these scenarios:
- Upon my next visit to US, the border control officer will see the stamp in my passport of me departing Mexico within US B1 visa stay term. (Not sure is Mexico will stamp it.) And that will make everything allright.
- I go back to US and deliberately fly out of USA to other country than Mexico or Canada.
- When entering the Mexico by car I stop at the border and ask Mexican border control official to stamp my passport.
- Is this something that can be fixed with I-94? However I wasn't given I-94 because it's no longer used for visitors arriving by air. Everything is electronic now.
