Following a visit to the US in 1993 on a B1 six month visa, I remained until my return to the UK in 1999.

I have since married a US citizen, and would like to know if I am still likely to be affected by the ten year inadmissibility restriction.

In short, can I obtain an entry visa for the US?

Why would you think you were not subject to the 10 year ban would be a more
apropos question.

Sure, after your 10 year ban expires (AFAICS).

You are subject to the ban. Your US citizen spouse may be able to file a waiver for
this, however, if he/she can show enough hardship and reasons why the citizen could
not instead live in the UK. Alvena

You would need a waiver for an immigration visa. This has to be based on "extreme
hardship" to the US citizen and should, IMHO, be prepared by a competent immigration
attorney. As far as I know, there is no waiver available for a non-immigrant visa
(and, presumably, the definition of extreme hardship would be difficult to achieve if
you are talking about the US citizen going home for a vacation without you).
