I need your help!! Please. My husband and I got married on March 30, 2012 and his tourist visa expires today. He was unable to renew as the trip to Belize and Canada do not count. What should we do now? Does this mean he is here illegally after today? What if he leaves for the UK (his homeland) a week from today? Will be allowed to re-enter the US on a tourist visa until his permanent visa is approved as my spouse? Please help.

A tourist visa is NOT to be used to 'wait for a green card in the US'...best if he returns to the UK, you file the necessary papers, he goes to our embassy on London and gets his immigrant visa...other options might backfire....

He needs to leave and go back to the UK today. He cannot over stay the visa.

Entering US with tourist visa with intent to marry and stay is immigration fraud.

If you have already filed for his visa, he needs to return home and wait there until his visa is approved.

Returning to UK and US would not grant him another 6 months on tourist visa any tourist is only allowed upto 180 days in US for a calendar year.

No, he wont be allowed back. His situation is like a person that attended a party and after the party he decides to stay back which means he has to face the consequency that may happen after the party. The best thing for him to do is to leave today. Goodluck.

If he overstays, will he be allowed back on a tourist visa.

Not likely, overstaying is a violation of the terms of the visa. Overstaying can cause bans from the USA.

If he's a UK citizen he shouldn't need a visa. Is he on a tourist visa or here on the visa waiver program?

Either way, overstaying his visa will now make him ineligible for future travel on the VPW and an almost certain denial of a future tourist visa.

The good news is, overstay of less than 180 days is generally forgiven for spouses of US citizens, so getting his green card through marriage to you in the future most likely won't be a problem.

You could also try to have him adjust status while he's here. If it wasn't intended from the get go it's fully legal to do. He then wouldn't have to leave. In fact, he absolutely should not leave for about 3 - 6 months. He also can't work for about 3 months.

No offense but why exactly did he not leave in the first place? You guys knew his visa was temporary..

The VWP amongst other things requires a return/onward ticket.
