Re: London B1/B2 in Administrative Processing for 7 months

Do you know if any of your colleagues had their ESTA revoked? If so, you've found the common thread and it would still point to your employer.

Re: E2 Business plan.

Agree that your immigration attorney should be providing you guidance on what this needs to include.

I would strongly recommend writing at least the bones of it yourself - you'll need to be able...

Re: London B1/B2 in Administrative Processing for 7 months

I wonder if it's something to do with your employer. We haven't seen a marked uptick in AP on this forum really, and I think we would if it was something happening to everyone. Sounds a bit...

Re: USCIS Fee Increase

It's interesting that the most maligned visa in the press, the H1-B, is the one most lightly hit. Implies this is basically not political and just in line with their costs.

Re: Advice - Stupid Mistake

Well you need a lawyer on side to start with, that's prepared to assemble an argument against the concept of misrepresentation from your answers to the ESTA questions. That should be fairly easy as...

Re: Advice - Stupid Mistake

I think this is possible to overcome. Depends how you described the situation to your current immigration attorney - if you went in saying you screwed up your ESTA then that's the position they'll...

Re: Esta - and non existent/existent criminal record.

And why did he need a B-2? Presumably not exactly the same situation as yourself, so it's unlikely you'd have the same restrictions.

Re: Convicted of driving offense whilst under the influence of Marijuana

What is his actual conviction? Has he admitted to driving under the influence of marijuana? There may be leeway here and a single DUI doesn't necessarily preclude you from receiving a visa.

Re: E2 Visa to Green Card

The treaty trader visa is the E-1. The E-2 that is bashed is because the investing individual cannot sponsor themselves, so there isn't a direct route to a greencard unless their investment reaches...

Re: E2 Visa to Green Card

It can be done. I would guess it's a little more straightforward for L-2s as they more commonly possess the things that greencards demand. Coming over as an essential employee on an E-2 has pretty...

Re: E2 Visa (The mine field have you been here before)

The "idea" so to speak isn't really the formative basis of the business plan - the way you are being vague about what you actually want to do makes me concerned that you think you've come up with an...

Re: E2 Visa (The mine field have you been here before)

$80k is not "very low". Very low would be $40k. A safe amount is $100k. I know people that have got 5 year E-2s on $50k - it's all in the business plan being realistic.

Re: Leaving US on L1 and coming back on ETSA

There is a 60 day grace period to allow you to tie up your affairs. Whilst I think you'd be fine, you can avoiding flying out and back in if you're doing this solely to not overstay.

When you say...

Re: Visiting my girlfriend in the US with a UK criminal record.

You may get a really mean consular officer who suspects willful misrep and then you're screwed. You may not.

A good attorney will address this in your K-1 application. You've not gone to none from...

Re: Visiting my girlfriend in the US with a UK criminal record.

Yes, I understand what you've said previously about this attorney. As has been mentioned, the change in the wording of the ESTA questions does not mean you are not ineligible according to the...

Re: Visiting my girlfriend in the US with a UK criminal record.

You might be up shit creek here. Your two common assault offences are not an issue but the theft thing definitely is one:



The problem now is that USICS has a credible argument that you...

Re: London B1/B2 in Administrative Processing for 7 months

I see your point and agree with it, but it's not really what I'm saying, particularly given he's had his ESTA revoked....

Re: London B1/B2 in Administrative Processing for 7 months

Re: London B1/B2 in Administrative Processing for 7 months

You're right about the 2 year thing but I was just wondering how sure you were that you were in date.

It's a bit late now but I definitely would have tried to re-apply for an ESTA at the point you...

Re: London B1/B2 in Administrative Processing for 7 months

When you say "thinking it had at least a year of validity" - are you sure about that? There's no possibility that you tried to fly after it expired? I'm curious what you were told at the check-in...

Re: London B1/B2 in Administrative Processing for 7 months

I don't think anything is really "normal" when administrative processing is involved because we, as outside observers, have no real idea of how the processing works and of course no idea what the...

Sorry to hear that. Give it a few years and I'm sure you'll get it next time.

Re: Nonimmigrant Visa Waiver of Ineligibility Application

Sorry, my bad. Thought you were talking about the CEAC status tracker.

It's not that uncommon for Belfast cases to proceed slightly in and out of order.
