First, check that this is a genuine warning. Check it for the usual signs of a scam email (faked "from" address, links you to a website that does not end in .gov). Contact US immigration on a publicly available email or number (not by any contact that you were given in the warning) and check with them.
If it turns out it is genuine, it is probably not as ...
Move your mouse over the circled ? just above the drop-down. It'll tell you:
If you have been issued one of these documents from another country, but you do not remember the passport number or national identification card number and the year of expiration answer "UNKNOWN" in the passport number field and four zeros "0000" in the year of expiration field.
So now, what are my risks?
None. Are you going to walk up to an immigration officer and say some years ago I broke immigration rules that US Immigration does not know about? They will think you are probably going insane. Your violation was not willful and clearly you are remorseful.
What would be the potential implications on my situation to my green
Once your friend has overstayed a VWP visit once he is forever barred from entering under the VWP again, no matter which passport he is using.
The only way to be readmitted in this situation is indeed to apply for a visa in advance. It probably doesn't matter much which of the two passports he applies for the visa with; but he will need to be honest about ...
As others have suggested, first check your I-94 departure record. If something has gone wrong and your departure has not been recorded properly, it will show up there.
If the system is showing incorrect information, the FAQ from CBP has a section for that:
If you feel this information is incorrect, you have two options:
You can contact the CBP ...
Immigration's job is making sure visitors to this country don't overstay, don't seek employment without the proper visa, don't rely on social services, don't commit crimes, and aren't being trafficked.
He surely wanted to talk to your former employer to avoid a snafu that would cause trouble later, if it turned out you were likely to be returning to her ...
You have 3 options:
Rebook your return ticket / Buy an additional one-way return ticket (might be less expensive than re-booking a non-refundable ticket)
Get a visa (costs USD 160)
Overstay, be banned from entering without a visa ever again, and get a black mark in the US systems.
Personally I would go with option 1, but it's up to you.
Thankfully your card hasn't been charged. Do not continue to deal with this service
ONLY use the government site, NOTHING else. Not only are you likely to be charged much more; they may not even submit the application correctly, which could have devastating immigration-related legal consequences for you.
7 weeks should be enough time for a new passport. I would suggest you contact your local US consulate immediately and get the process started, letting them know of your time constraint. There are likely to be ways to expedite the process if necessary, but I don't think it will be necessary.
As for the agency, I would just explain to them that you have ...
Although stays in Canada famously do not reset the Visa Waiver Program 90 day clock*, that does not mean that stays in Canada after you have exited the US for the last time in a trip are added to your stay. US CBP does not care how long you stay in Canada. The clock does not reset when you make a short Canada visit and return to the US solely because they do ...
You do not need a visa.
That website is not an official site. It exists for the purpose of overcharging people for their ESTA applications. Note the disclaimer at the bottom of the page, which states that it is "is a private information website not affiliated with the United States Government."
Have a look at https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov/esta/, which by ...
However, you will need to travel to the US using your US passport.
From the Official ESTA Application website:
Do I need to apply for an ESTA if...?
I am a U.S. Citizen with dual citizenship in a VWP country?
U.S. Citizens are not required to have an ESTA and are required to use their U.S. passport to travel to the U.S.
I think they are correct that you are not eligible to use the Visa Waiver Program ever again. INA 217(a)(7) (8 USC 1187(a)(7)) says:
(a) Establishment of program
The Secretary of Homeland Security and the Secretary of State are
authorized to establish a program (hereinafter in this section
referred to as the “program”) under which the requirement of ...
The US CBP (Customs and Border Protection) is uninterested in how you purchase your flights from the airline. Their only concern is that you leave the US on or before the date your stay expires. There should be absolutely no problem with your plan.
The only problem that could arise is if your approval to stay is for some reason much shorter than the normal ...
You are not eligible and need to apply for a visa. As the document you quote states, people who have traveled to North Korea after March 1, 2011 (with exceptions that presumably do not apply in your case) are no longer eligible to be admitted under the Visa Waiver Program. This is the case whether or not your ESTA is valid; you're seeking to be admitted ...
Legally, she can enter the US with her US passport (since it will not yet have expired), but she will need to renew it before leaving:
Except as otherwise provided by the President and subject to such limitations and exceptions as the President may authorize and prescribe, it shall be unlawful for any citizen of the United States to depart from or enter, ...
In general it is allowed to volunteer in the US when you are there on a B1 or B2 visa, or on visa waiver program, and for most other visas that do not permit paid employment. However there are some restrictions, and it is best to check them out.
The most significant restriction is that you can only volunteer to do things that are normally done on a ...
My second ESTA application was denied as well. I did not state it here before but I've been to Iran in 2014 for a week. I just found out that anyone who has been in Iran, Somalia, Yemen etc. after 2001 or 2011 has to apply for a Tourist visa from the embassy.
I just checked the processing times for a US passport application at a few embassies:
London, approximately four weeks (faster service at consulates general)
Warsaw, five to ten business days
Prague, eight to ten business days
Rome, approximately three weeks
I just checked the appointment offerings in London as an example, and they have 38 spots open ...
Update: the Customs and Border Protection website now says:
You may also have a third party, such as a relative or travel agent, pay the associated fees for each application. CBP is not responsible for third party fees. Your application will not be submitted for processing until all payment information is received.
Apparently they currently have no ...
You are not eligible for ESTA because you did overstay, there's no ambiguity about that. I see no need to call CBP, they are not there to help you and many times you will get wrong information anyway. The only course open is to apply for a visa. If you apply for ESTA you could get approved, but you will certainly be denied entry at the airport and deported ...
No. It's a domestic flight. There's no immigration control. Only passengers arriving from international destinations are sent to the immigration hall. When you check in for the flight, you'll need your passport, but only for the purpose of identification (actually, there are several other documents that can be used for identification, but most ESTA ...
There are two things to consider:
The regular (pre-COVID) rules for entry into the US still apply. To enter the US (actually to even be allowed to board), you need to either:
be a US citizen
be a US permanent resident (green card holder)
have a valid US visa
or have a valid ESTA
There are no rules which allow you to automatically enter the US because you ...
You did not acquire either a three year or a ten year ban because you overstayed by less than 180 days, but you are barred from using the ESTA again because any overstay prevents you from using it again. You can apply for a visa. Be ready to show why you are unlikely to overstay again.
Further to @Hilmar’s answer, and after update from OP confirming duration of stay per i-94 is 90 days, IMHO the answer to the question is ‘yes, you should take this landing interview seriously’.
A requirement of US law means they start temporary visitor admission decisions from a presumption of immigrant intent. Although your Norwegian citizenship means you ...
If you're sure he left within a 30-day grace period (i.e. it didn't expire), then e-mail the CBP at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com, explaining the situation in clear detail and attaching ALL supporting documentation, including his passport. Politely request that they revoke your father's VWP ineligibility on the basis that he was given satisfactory ...
A simplified version of the question would be:
Have you ever been issued a passport by any other country?
This should be easier to answer. It sounds like in your case, where you are French citizens and have only ever been French citizens, the answer would be no. (If your husband was issued a French passport in Australia, that would not count as a ...
What Is the US Visa Waiver Program?
The US Visa Waiver Program (VWP) allows travellers of certain nationalities to visit the US for tourism or business purposes without the need for a visa, for a maximum of 90 days. This is a bilateral agreement, meaning that all countries participating in the VWP must allow US citizens to visit for tourism or business ...
No, the only official ESTA form is https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov. When talking about the US, you should be wary of official-looking sites that don't end in .gov.
As far as I understand it, the business model of those sites is just to rip you off (charging you 60€ instead of ~$15). I wouldn't be tooo concerned about them abusing your information.
