Visit from family

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My daughter, her fiance and my grandaughter are planning a 4 week trip to the USA this Spring. Does anyone know if they will have any problems due to the fact she will state that she's over to visit her father? I am here in the middle of AOS and I don't want Border Control thinking they want to live here. My family are coming over from the UK, they will be bringing the usual evidence with them to show ties back home.

I know I'm probably just over reacting, but i have heard some families coming over and staying beyond the days they said. I don't want to think they will get grilled at POE. This will be their first trip to the US and the first time I've seen them in over 2 years.

Thanks

UK nationals coming on VWP? As long as they complete ESTA and get approval for travels they should be fine. As always, return flight tickets, proof of employment and any other ties to UK may be asked for.

You are correct in your assumption: you are overreacting. Unless any of your family members has an US overstay on record, the all will be greeted with "have a great vacation!"


There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all . . . . The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic . . . . There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.
