Default Visiting the USA regularly

I know that UK citizens come under the visa waiver setup with a 90 day visit limit under normal circumstances.
Does anyone know if it is possible to use this on a recurring basis, 90 days in the States and 90 days in the UK, 90 days in the States etc....
Staying in an American girl friends private accommodation when in the States, travelling backwards and forwards together. She of course would be staying at the private accommodation in the UK.
Both are over 70 years old, retired and no business connections.
Would this arrangement run into any problems?

Yes. As the number of visits increase, the probability of the drawbridge being raised increases. Nobody can tell you when exactly this will happen, but--if you want my guesstimate--I doubt you'd get away with it for more than a couple of years.

Also, they will open themselves up to tax liability in the other countries.

This is a spot to introduce yourself....better off asking in the immigration forum, well actually searching out threads.

At that age, B2 might be more of a option.

The real issue is medical insurance as travel insurance won't cover that length of stay and it might be near impossible or stupidly expensive to find insurance.

Hi Bob, thanks, I had a look around forums and was seeing, say, 929 pages of stuff to wade through! The problem is matching my search wording to someone elses thread title, bit hit and miss. Actually, a lot hit and miss.

To take you up on your comments on travel insurance. We have a daughter lives in LA. She was very ill in childbirth 2 years ago and my wife and myself went over for 90 days to assist. The basic travel insurance was for 30 days but we were allowed to do 2x30 day extensions at reasonable cost to get cover for the 90 days. It had to be requested from the start though.

There is usually a maximum number of days coverage within a 12 month period though, especially when over 65.

Hi Rosemary, thank you. So much info.... so little time. It will take a while to get around the site to see what is for offer, even before delving into all the threads.

I recommend you take a look at the US Immigration forum. Please post any questions you have in that forum as this forum is for introductions only. Some of the people who post in the US Imm forum have been in similar circumstances and they will help you as much as they can.

Good luck.
