Yeah ... the problem is that they don't have to prove you overstayed.
You have to prove you didn't if they take it into your head that you
did!

fleming77 is an unknown quantity at this point
Default overstaying B1/B2 visas!

I am curious to find out what would happen to me if i overstayed my b1/b2 visa. I have read that it depends on the amount of time you overstay but how do they really know when you go to the airport. Its my understanding that when you go through for your flight there are no immigration checks...or am i just dilusional. I seem to remember this from last time i left US.
And i am also curious to find out if they have a computer system with a database of when i arrived.
can anyone fill me in...

many thanks in advance!

I don't know much about B1 visa's, my only advice would be to do everything properly and by the book. You know what, INS probably would never figure out (or care) if you didnt leave and as far as my 7 outward trips i was never asked about my I-94's, BUT if y overstay and then come back and want to work legally again, or meet a girl it can become a *****ing nightmare and i regret nothing more than overstaying like i did. I'm now trying to adjust status after marrying my girl and it sucks. INS really arent that smart, but for the sake of flying back, renewing a visa, or coming in with a waiver, it realy isnt worth it.
Just my 2 cents worth, just do what you got to.

Hey,
It depends on the time you overstayed, they know if You overstayed because
when You leave US You have to give the I-94 card back (to airline attendant)
then they send it to INS.

Once the immigration officer sent me to the second one, and they knew
everything
about me, when I arrived/left US each time, they even knew that I have US
driver license (they said I shouldn't have it)
(I'm no USC or permanent resident), I was on regular B visa.
It was before 9/11.
