    Answered . three years plus as long as the US consulate officials will then find in themselves to issue you a nonimmigrant visa. From now on, you will need a visa. You have just voted yourself out of the VWP.

    Answered . Amigo, if you overstayed more than 6 months, but less than 1 year as you have reported here, you will then be barred from returning for 3 years (from the date you left. If your overstay would have been for one year or more, you would then be barred from readmission to the US for 10 years.
