Re: VWP Back to Back

No guarantee, but in my opinion the chances of being admitted on back-to-back VWP visits aren't too bad the first time you do it. This is from personal experience, and that of friends, back in...

Re: Can I use the VWP twice a year?

I had a period where I was doing a similar pattern. Three months in, two weeks out, another six weeks in, two months out, two months in etc.

Re: Repeated visits to US on the Visa Waiver Program

I wouldn't try this more than once without a lengthy stay out of the US, but it can be done.

Re: Trusted Travelers: Global Entry VIP

OK thanks

I thought a visa stamped duration of status, which basically means you are in the US indefinitely as long as your status does not change, might apply. Obviously not.

Re: My Life As An Undocumented Immigrant

That sounds like something approaching a solution, albeit with flaws. Once news that this was going to be passed was made public, many people would want to get in before the six month deadline, and I...

Re: Trusted Travelers: Global Entry VIP

It says that "Global Entry is open to U.S. citizens, lawful permanent residents, Dutch citizens, and Mexican nationals". But it was not quite clear to me. Does this mean no visa holders, even if they...

Re: NYC affordable on this transfer?

I dunno what it's like in Hell's Kitchen, but at my local supermarket on the Upper East Side a dozen eggs is $1.79 and a quart of orange juice is $2. A quart of milk is $1.19. In the local pub a pint...

Re: NYC affordable on this transfer?

East Harlem varies block by block. I was thinking of the area between 98th and 103rd, near Lex, east of the Metro North line. There are projects further east, but this area is all walk ups, and has...

Re: My Life As An Undocumented Immigrant

He almost certainly won't be deported, as his is not a priority case. But there remains no legal way for him to adjust his status while remaining in the country.

Re: safest way to try and visit US for 6 months without running into problems

I've done two back-to-back 90 day stays (with a week out of the country), and I know plenty of others who have. But you do hear about people being turned back. It's always a risk.

The Met, MOMA and the Gugenheim all have free coatrooms. They accept small bags. You can actually store your stuff in the Met before you pay to go in.

Re: DC or Baltimore?

If you are working near the center of DC and live 15 mins or less from Baltimore Penn station then it may be worth it. The fast train takes just 30 mins to the centre of DC from Bimo.

You can normally get a burger for 5 or 6 bucks, plus tip. Don't forget to add tips into the equation BTW. And yes, car trouble is always a possibility.

Re: Living in the US without working

Scathing sarcasm can be quite funny, but not when it's directed at someone who makes occasional grammar or spelling errors. None of us have perfect grammar.
