  • Tourist Visa expired "entrance permit"?

    Hi,
    I have a friend you has entered the country with a Tourist visa, but she says that her "entrance permit" ( I know that is not the correct name) has expired. What can she do to get another permit. I beleive that she told me that she gets this permit at the airport, upon arrival

    Thanks in Advance!

      There is nothing she can do to stay unless she gets married to a USC. This is risky

        It's possible for her to file for an Extension of Status application BEFORE the expiration date.

        www.ins.gov for more info

          She is now out of status and would be bar from coming back for 3/10 years.

            While your friend is out of status. He or She will only trigger the 3/10 year bars if the overstay is beyond 180 days for the 3 year bar and one year for the ten year. Therefore, if he or she hasn't triggered the bar, he or she should voluntarily leave. Unfortunately since out of status can not extend status in US.

                Is the entrance permit the actual visa that is printed on her passport? If that is expired you can not enter the country. Since she is already here, it is no longer relavant. There is usually a time limit she can stay with a tourist visa. It varies for different countries. I may appear on her I-94 but I am not sure. She needs to find out about that time limit. She may not be out of status yet.

                  Hi Smeagol,

                  A spammer resurrected this 2002 post.

                  The OP probably isn't around anymore to give details.
