B2 Overstay / 212 D 3 Waiver

22 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

 

I've made a mistake 4 years ago for overstaying my B2 visa. I've made a choice due to family matters. Taking care of my grandmother.

I'm on a 10years barred from entering coz it's more than a year. I departed voluntarily and no removal proceedings and I have no criminal record.

 

I am a Canadian PR for 2 years now, I would like apply for a b2 visa again and the 212 d 3 waiver, I would like to get some info on the procedure of this.

or any suggestions. I just want to travel again through border on a long weekend and or visit family there.

 

Thank you very much

I suppose you could try, but with a 10 year bar for a >1 year overstay, and with reason to do that again (family in US), I think your chances are nil.

Like I said, you can try.  All you have to lose is the application fee.

You apply for a B, if the CO would otherwise give you one but for the ban they will recommend you for a D3 waiver.

Unless you have close family ties in schengen like you do in the US, it’s not a valid comparison. 

“2 regular jobs” doesn’t sound like a permanent employment contract?

 

You can try...but be prepared for disappointment. There are lots of forum posts of Canadians in similar situations to you who have had to wait out bans. I can’t remember the number now but there is a surprisingly high number of Canadians who overstay so having done it once just makes it hard to come back ...

Being resident in Canada no doubt helped with Schenegen.
