Recommended Posts

in 2005 I have violated F1 visa, overstayed more than one year, I have been removed from states with 10 yeas bar. I have spend 12 years outside of us. I applied for visa from consulate  twice, second time I have been granted for 10 years B1/B2 visa.

since 2017 I have made 4 short visits to us. 18 days, 12 days, 5 days.


My last visit 2019, I spend 5.5 monty in US and left to Turkey, but I did not exceed visa term I94, which was 6 months. I came back to US after 45 days. at the port of entry I have been ordered expedite of removal, because last time I stay too long. so officer might though I would violate visa term etc they didn’t satisfy to qualify me admit in US. They cancelled my B1/B2 visa and they ordered me to expedite removal with 212(a)(7)(i)(I) ……. under section 211(a) of the act.


i file I130 petition and  approved.


I am trying to file I 212 waiver or consent to reapply …


under  part 2 in from I-212


Removal as an Arriving Alien (INA Section 212(a)(9)(A)(i))


  • 1.b.  I have only been removed once, and my last removal was less than five years ago.
  • 1.c.  I have been removed at least two or more times, and my last removal was less than 20 years ago.



which one should I mark, I have been ordered 2005 and I served my 10 years bar. that should bee erased. or that should be counted as second removal , then I should chose 1.c.


if anybody passed through such circumstances before.  thank you very much for any help


note:  criminal history, no fraud or misrepresentation.

Previous post for history:


Based upon that thread, it sounds like you had a voluntary departure (VD) on your first exit. A VD is not a removal, although it does not bypass the 3/10 year bars for overstay either.

Then you got an expedited removal during an attempt to visit the country.

So that's 1 removal only by my count.
