  • Voluntary Departure

    Is there ever a chance that my Thai friend can reenter the USA
    after a voluntary departure? What about fiance(e) visa? Marriage?
    He was an overstay of 1 year 7 months. Other than the overstay, committed
    no crime. I have my rose colored glasses on....don't I?? Thanks for any
    and all opinions, comments and feelings on this matter.

    I believe he'd be able to return after the 10 year ban expires.

        Hi there

        Your
        friend's fiancee (if he has one) can apply for K1 or K3 but he will need
        a waiver (I-601) at the time of the interview. An immigration attorney
        to file his I-601 is needed.
        As for the K1 & K3 he and his fiance could
        apply for it.

            If you are deported from the US you have a ten year ban from entering
            the US. A VR is pretty simple there is no ban from entering the US. It
            is not the same as a formal deportation,

            You might not have to file an
            I 601 waiver either. Your friend should stand a decent chance at getting
            that type of visa.

                If we he "asked" to voluntrary depart, wouldn't it still count against him
                when they filed the petition (early in the morning, not all the neurons
                firing yet). If I'm not mistaken, there is no ban, but it "looks bad" when
                you apply/go for the interview at teh end of the process.

                    I don't believe being asked to voluntarily depart removes any sort of
                    liability for the crime you committed. IOW I think the ban it still
                    there. The difference is that with voluntary departure you are asked to
                    leave and expected to do so by a certain date (as opposed to being
                    physically thrown out of the country pronto).

                        When I was denied entry on October 2002, It was classified as "Voluntary
                        departure" Vs "Removal proceedings" since I was denied under the VWP.
                        If
                        he gets a waiver for the overstay by the time he goes for his
                        interview.. he should be fine, shouldn't he?
                        He wasn't under removal
                        proceedings since his was a voluntary departure.
                        Correct me someone I am
                        wrong..
