Am I eligible for a tourist visa?

Hayward, CA |

I lived in the U.S, I entered with a humanitory visa when I was 5 yrs old and stayed there for 23yrs. I studied, worked, and had a daughter. I've been out of the U.S for 2 yrs and now I want to go visit, so I want to apply for a visa. Do I have any chances?

  1. Best answer

    You say you want to apply for a visa. To visit? Or to live here? What were the conditions of the humanitarian visa. If you were unlawfully present for more than 180 days, you will need a waiver before you can reenter.

    I strongly suggest you consult with an experienced immigration attorney to flesh out the issues and render appropriate advice.

  2. It all depends on your immigration and criminal histories. Did you spend any time out of status?
