Sorry you've had no news yet. It's tough trying to stay patient with all your plans on hold. Hope something comes through for you soon.

Hi guys,

I'm hoping to travel to New York for a week for with my girlfriend next December. I'm eligible for the VWP, however, my girlfriend has 2 minor theft convictions from 2010 (no jail time, just small fines).

As this counts as a CIMT, I'm guessing she would have a visa application rejected & need to apply for a visa ineligibility waiver. Does anybody know if she would be granted this? Or should we just drop the idea?

Thanks
Craig

Convictions in 2010 may be too soon for the waiver to be approved. The person needs a significant period of time where she is off probation or similar in order to show that she has been rehabilitated. Unless there is no other place to visit, I'd wait a few more years.

I know that if she never applies for the visa, she'll never find out whether or not she can get a waiver. Other than time/money, there's almost nothing to lose by trying.

Hello everyone
Just joined this forum in the hope to understand this Visa process we have to go through if you need a waiver of ineligibility. I had absolutely no idea it would take this long and have learnt a lesson never to take things for granted and not to have any expectations as it only leads to frustration.

I'm currently applying for a H1b visa and now into week 26 after being told it would take weeks not months when I had the interview back in the beginning of May. Although on the paper it told me 20-22 weeks.
The frustrating thing is, I already had a year left on my L1 blanket Visa and only came back to upgrade after living there for 2 years I was never told of my permanent inadmissibility originally when I applied! And so foolishly moved over there kitchen sink and all.
The expectation to think it would be a quick stamp and go was wrong. I still have a car,apartment, bills, still coming out and now a very disgruntled company wondering what the hell is going on as I can't come back to the states without a visa.
Looking at all the posts has given me some hope as I know I'm not on my own and is another lesson to get yourself well informed before you apply.
