WHAT KIND OF PROBLEMS CAN ARISE AT POE

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My friends boyfriend is coming here using the visa waiver program. He is a UK national. She is really worried he may be denied entry. Is this a strong possibility? He will be staying for a little over 4 weeks and will be carrying nearly $1000. Should he bring more or does it matter. And does the fact that he is coming to visit his girlfriend pose a possible problem at his POE?

She is really worried. Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

Being denied entry is always a possibility. Strong ties to the UK will be the key. He needs to show solid proof that he intends to return home at the end of his visit.

Is it her first or 2nd time in the US this year? Can you tell me something about the travel history?

It will be her boyfriends first time coming here. Not much travel history to tell.

He was pre approved through ESTA. He doesn't have a job or a home in his name. Are these things going to pose an issue? Considering it is just a vacation.

I won't worry about it. There are a lot of people who go on a holiday for 4 weeks to the USA. Just say visting friends and a holiday. I doubt there will be any problems. I cross the border multiple times a year for the same reason and I havn't encounterd any problems at all. Questions are always minimal. Ofcourse there is always is a risk your friend CAN get denied. But I'll say that chance is 0.000001%. if it was the 4th time this year for another 4 weeks, then I would be more worried. But useally, even then people still get in lol. But what mostly happends when you come that much is that you get pulled into 2nd inspection. They just want to make sure you (with that I mean your friend :) ) are leaving the US after your visit.

But still there are people who visit they ' boy/girl' friends for 90 days eachtime or so (1-2 times a year). And they usually(There are exeptions of course, but then something really weird needs to happen) get in. On other forums, I have met some people who visit their loved once 2-3 times each year for 2-3 weeks each time and they haven't got any problems. They just state state the POE they visting a boy/girlfriend. No worries for your friend! People make a bigger problem about it then it really is. I am one of those, I can get borderline paranoid about it!

If it makes him feel comfortable, bring some proof. Like a letter from his boss or a college pass. And always a return ticket ofcourse :innocent:

I doubt there will be any problems at all.

Anyway, I have never ever heard a story of someone being denied in a situation like your friends boyfriend, even not in my situation :innocent: And if they get denied, then there must be something wrong (Like packing for 3 months when you are coming for 2 weeks for example, or something else that is suspicious) because CBP are usually pretty good in what they do. Getting the bad guys out.

It's a good possibility they will. Those are two key things that CBP will look at upon entry. No one knows for sure until they try.
