  • Overstay

    Please help if possible...I came to US many years ago on F-1 but am now out of status for few years.
    My question is if I leave US, and come back with a passport of a different coutry, will INS know? I have dual citizenship of two countries, one in the visa wavier program and the other not. The name is the same in both passports.

        Are you kidding? You are trying to manipulate the US government after overstaying your visa and then bamboozle the DOS and INS to return.

        I usually do not get on the cases of illegals even though I am opposed to it, but that is foul and illegal.

        I do not know if you will get caught, but with that kind of thinking, hopefully the INS will notice that you are same person.

        Please try to solve your problems legally especially after you have broken our laws.

        Like try a lawyer.

          I would just say to be very careful if you do it... make sure you don't leave from the same airport you enter from, leave a large tiem period before re-entering. If you are out of status and they catch you you will be eligible for the 3/10 bar (if I am not mistaken).

          If they do catch you be as honest and as charming as you can be....

          good luck and let us know if it works... (I at least am curious - intellectually)

            Sally, if your name is spelled the same way, your birthday is the same, your country of birth is the same on both passports, INS will be able to figure out that it's *you*

              I don't think thats wise. You will more than likely get caught and deported to your original country

                    Yes, they will probably catch you, matching name/birth date/birth country.
                    Maybe not on your first/second ... entry, but eventually, they will.
                    Even if one of your passports is from a VWP country, you can no longer travel to the USA under the VWP once you have overstayed even one day.
                    This is stated on the web page of the US embassy in Sweden:
                    NOTE: ANY PERSON WHO HAS STAYED IN THE UNITED STATES LONGER THAN 90 DAYS DURING A PREVIOUS VISIT ON VWP IS INELIGIBLE TO USE THIS PROGRAM AND MUST OBTAIN A VISA.

                      I too am have overstayed my B-2 visa and have two passports. However, due to a processing mistake the two passports have different countries of birth.

                      Could the INS figure out the me form one country is the same as the other me from another?

                        Who knows if they can figure you out at this point really. But the question is - is it really worth the risk?

                          You have to realise that they will ask you if you have ever been to the US before. What are you going to do? Lie?

                          How are you going to come back anyways? On what visa?

                            Just reading this board it is obvious that it encourages lies deceit and it's way out of line. You're all looking for some way to wiggle out of something you've done wrong. When and where does it end? When do you start telling the truth? When a criminal robs a bank, he tries to avoid the police. He also gets his story lined up just in case he is stopped and questioned. This is plain wrong and there's no way to make it right, and it's a dishonest way to live. I have to admit you people are pro's!

                              For the last poster:

                              You're wrong...we all haven't done something wrong. I haven't and I know I'm not the only one.

                              My post was not meant to encourage lying. On the contrary..they are probably going to find out if you lie.
