Am I eligible for a tourist visa?

Asked over 2 years ago - 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?

    Answered . 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.
