Visa Waiver and me being an idiot :/

How was in Nov deciding to stay for the holodays not intentional ? Had you left then you would have been fine. There was nothing stopping you from leaving other than your desire to be in the US longer


This will not be over quickly. You will not enjoy this.

Right so after all you kind replies, advice and comments. I am 100% aware that what I did was wrong with the overstay. I understand I cannot go back on a Visa waiver. I understand that to go back again I need a B2 tourist visa. So at the interview I imagine I will need to explain the overstay. Which I will. I will bring documented evidence to back up that it was most definitely not intentional. They will want me to provide proof of solid ties to the UK. I can have mountains of evidence of that. So.... after meeting all their requirements, why, would it still be" unlikely" that it would be granted?? The overstay? But hang on.... isnt the point of applying for B2 becuase I cant use the VWP? BECAUSE OF THE OVERSTAY?? Im not trying to be funny by putting this.... but what really be the point of the London US Embassy website, and customer service adviser advising me to get a B2, if theyre just going to decline it? For my money? That genuinley baffles me????? :/

Yes, for the overstay. Put yourself in their shoes. You've already abused one visa, why should you be trusted with another one?

So its pointless then? Not worth my time effort and money! Anyone know when or if I can ever apply? Or is this for life now????

Not pointless, but I wouldn't go in with high hopes, especially this soon after your overstay. Look at it this way, you overstayed almost the 180 days, that would have caused an automatic 3 year ban, that might be a good rule of thumb of how long you may have to wait until you get another visa. But no one can say for sure, you will never now unless you try.

I don't know what your honest chances are at a visitor visa. It up to the officer of the day.

This does NOT ruin your chances of ever entering the USA again if you plan to move to the USA. You don't have a ban. If you and your husband wanted to move to the US, this won't bar your from immigrating to the US on a spouse visa. But you'll need a visitor's visa for the rest of your life if you want to visit. If you get refused a visitor's visa, I would think about living in the USA (immigrating) and getting your US citizenship so that you won't have to deal with the issue anymore. But I don't know what your family plans are long-term.

I would be telling all those people who told you it would be fine to enter what we've told you--as you can see, there are very serious consequences and they probably wouldn't have the luxury that you do of being able to immigrate to the US based on your marriage.

We don't want to live in the USA. It's not something we would ever even consider. It was never even a 'possible'. So now I gotta wait for the time difference an tell my mother in law she won't be meeting her grand daughter. I'm such a fool. Grrrrrr

Don't most all UK workers get a minimum of 3 weeks of vacation time? He could take your daughter to meet his mother. Maybe not this year if he's already use it up, but perhaps next year.

I would still try for the visitor's visa; you might get approved and then at least you'll know.

This is sad, but you should of left in November when your Visa Waver was ending. I know that was so close to Christmas, but those rules are very serious, I guess you are seeing that now... I'm not sure if you knew what you were getting into when you decided to stay past November. My husband and I were very careful about our visits on the WVP. The longest he would ever stay was 88 days, just so there was an extra day just in case flights got delayed for whatever reason and he ended up staying longer in the U.S. because of that.

Are you still going to try to get the B2 visa? I think you should at least give that try. I do hope you get it! Good luck!
