Hello VJ member,

I have a one question for my friend, He was on a student visa in Norway but was not detained or arrested for that matter and left Norway voluntarily but got 5 year ban to enter into Norway.He is banned because he worked more than 20 hours in a week.

He came to US through K1 in 2016 and successfully got GC in 2017, Now his ROC paperwork in process  and  he has not disclosed that information to USCIS since he was not detained or arrested and left Norway voluntarily. Do you guys think he will have an issue later when he apply for Naturalization or in process of I751?

Your case is not like the link I shared, but you need to do more research on your case.

Thank you for reply but his case is completely different, no arrest, no jail time, no detained whatsoever and  voluntarily left country with no charge except for 5 years ban and I'm wondering if working more than 20 hours as a student would consider as a crime or not?

If it was not a criminal matter (most immigration violations are not), then I don't see an issue. I don't see a misrep here.

Does committing immigration violation acts as a crime especially in his case , he worked more than 20 hours as a student and then got 5 years ban in Norway?

That's a specific question with regards to how Norway treats unauthorized work (which I do not claim to know). The violation itself and the resulting ban are not an issue here, only if it resulted in an actual offense for which he was cited, detained, arrested, etc.
