UNIVSION Story on difficulties with re-entry

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We just our greencard and have three trips coming.  The first is to go home to see our family, the second two are Europe for anniversary and then in fall Asia as a tourist.  Has anyone ran into any problems with re-entry with a greencard with multiple trips?  Each trip is about a week in length so definitely under the six month rule.  Univison made a statement yesterday on a broadcast that people are reporting that they are having more of a hastle with re-entry.  I don't know if that would be for travelers for visas or those with greencards.

 

Thanks for the info.

[Moderator hat off]

It might be for those with visas or (less likely) Advance Parole.  Uni is a Mexican network, so it might be a situation peculiar to legal Mexican travelers.


06-04-2007 = TSC stamps postal return-receipt for I-129f.

06-11-2007 = NOA1 date (unknown to me).

07-20-2007 = Phoned Immigration Officer; got WAC#; where's NOA1?

09-25-2007 = Touch (first-ever).

09-28-2007 = NOA1, 23 days after their 45-day promise to send it (grrrr).

10-20 & 11-14-2007 = Phoned ImmOffs; "still pending."

12-11-2007 = 180 days; file is "between workstations, may be early Jan."; touches 12/11 & 12/12.

12-19-2007 = NOA2 by e-mail & web, dated 12-18-07 (187 days; 201 per VJ); in mail 12/24/07.

01-09-2008 = File from USCIS to NVC, 1-4-08; NVC creates file, 1/15/08; to consulate 1/16/08.

01-23-2008 = Consulate gets file; outdated Packet 4 mailed to fiancee 1/27/08; rec'd 3/3/08.

04-29-2008 = Fiancee's 4-min. consular interview, 8:30 a.m.; much evidence brought but not allowed to be presented (consul: "More proof! Second interview! Bring your fiance!").

05-05-2008 = Infuriating $12 call to non-English-speaking consulate appointment-setter.

05-06-2008 = Better $12 call to English-speaker; "joint" interview date 6/30/08 (my selection).

06-30-2008 = Stokes Interrogations w/Ecuadorian (not USC); "wait 2 weeks; we'll mail her."

07-2008 = Daily calls to DOS: "currently processing"; 8/05 = Phoned consulate, got Section Chief; wrote him.

08-07-08 = E-mail from consulate, promising to issue visa "as soon as we get her passport" (on 8/12, per DHL).

Can you please update us on how the re-entry went after your travels?

Returned from Colombia through Dallas in January and got a "welcome home" from the immigration officer on the way through.  Same thing happened returning from Paris through Dallas.  Absolutely no delays or problems.  We will be filing for our visas to China next month and expect no problems with this trip either.  Everything has been very, very smooth.
