I am a participant of Work and travel program. One week ago i was fired from my host company. My sponsor said me to leave US before 11 of august. I have plane ticket on 31 of august. I can`t change this ticket, and cannot leave US till this date. After 11 august my sponsor will terminate my SEVIS status, so I`ll be in US illegaly. What aftermathes I`ll have in this case? How it can affect to my opportunity visit US in future? Will i have problems if I`ll use domestic airlines in USA in this period?
You will be out of status after August 11th. Whether you'll have problems will depend on what it is you want to do in the future. Less than 180 days of unlawful presence (which will begin to run after August 11th, in your case) will not cause you to have any bar preventing you from entering the U.S. However, any unlawful presence accumulated will look bad if and when you try to obtain another visa to return here. So, in short, you should have no problems using the airlines to return home after August 11th, and can return home expecting no issues. It is if and when you want to return that you may face some questions as to the unlawful presence you may have accumulated. If you do not plan on returning to the U.S., you should have no issues whatsoever. If you do plan on returning to the U.S., try your best to depart timely (by August 11th) - if this is impossible, consult a good immigration attorney for advice. Good luck.
