You should take any document that demonstrates your need to leave the US when your visit is over... a letter from your employer with a specific date that you are expected to return, a copy of your lease or mortgage, and the like.

You would need lots of info to prove you have no reason to stay in USA. This could include mortgage details, bank accounts, proof of income and wage slips to prove you have a job etc...

So now i need a wavier to go with the B1/B2 visa as advised by CBP in Rome; my question is this:-what documents do i need to take with me at the interview.
I live in spain and would be going back to the embassy in Madrid. I am also a UK passport holder.
Did you overstay a visa, or the VWP? Did you get voluntary departure, or a VWP Removal?

Unless it was a VWP Removal, I don't see why you would need a waiver for a 2 week overstay and a VD. You likely only need to convince them that you are a visitor and will not violate the rules again.

I overstayed a visa last july and i had to go see an immigration judge(bloomington, mn) after spending 2 weeks in a detention center. I was given a VD with a $500 bond(has never been returned) and of course i left well within the time given.
I´m not eligible for the VWP or ESTA. I was told by CBP in Rome that i needed an annotated wavier and all the research leads me to this.

Can I just ask the people that have actually received their visas about the issue dates on them.
If you have waiting for 20+ weeks for the visa to come, is the visa issued from the date of your interview or from when they made the decision to give you one?
Thanks

From the date they approve the visa....could be the date of your interview, could be a later date.

Hey guys!

Stumbled on this site looking for info on the Visa Waiver Of Ineligibility as I had an interview last Friday and was recommended for one and have read through the 10 pages, but still have some questions.

1. Am I correct in thinking that if you have 20-22 weeks it will take that amount of time and no earlier?

2. I havent got a reference number how do I get hold of one

3. Will they email me or write to me. The letter and consulate lady told me write to me in the post.

Many Thanks

I believe they will e-mail you if you provided details ( or at least that is what I was told by the consulate officer ) I was originally advised there would be a 16 week delay and am now into week 21, I did not recieve a reference number and I believe that is intentional so that they do not have everyone constantly phoning to chase the process up, it will happen when it happens and not a minute earlier...

My US attourney has a contact within the Waiver department and has been calling on a monthly basis the responce is alway "we have a large backlog, your case has not yet been adjudicated"

Any timescale you are given is a guideline and most likely an optomistic one.

As I suggested before don't make any plans till you have your visa in your hands otherwise you will probably be dissapointed..

It could potentially be earlier but probably won't be we were told 14 to 16 weeks and it took 25, they will not respond to any email or give you a reference until you have at least waited the length of time you have been told. You will be contacted by email, again we were told they would phone or write but they won't. The method of communication is email.
Good luck though

Sorry, I wasn't asking why you needed the visa, but why you needed the waiver. Were you arrested for or do you have a conviction for a CIMT offense?

Ah ok. Sorry. It was an arrest and charge and due to a conviction including Moral Turpitude...
