If a person gets a voluntary departure, how long must they wait before applying to come back?
2 attorney answers
I would add that it is important to ive additional information sch as the length you overstayed and the type of visa because this impacts both the time limit on your return and the potential waivers you can receive. For instance, students who overstay visas are often eligible for waivers that allow them to reenter long before the 3 or 10 year time bars.
Typically, most folks who have to take Voluntary Departure, are also out of status, and thus, likley have either a 3 or 10 year bar on returning to the U.S. So, without know how long you may have been in the US illegaly, or out of status, or what visa you may have entered on, the basic answer is you are not coming back for at least 3-10 years. Please provide additional information about your status and cause of removal so that I can give you a specfic answer.
