Thread: re: annotations

  1. #1
    I arrived in the U.S on the 16th of july 2007 via one
    of the international airports. The immigration officer
    noticed from my passport that i stayed in the U.S in
    2004 for a period of seven months when all i had was a
    B2 visa. i explained to her that i applied to i.n.s
    for extension of my stay and that the extension was
    approved and that besides i had travelled to the u.s
    in 2005.

    She then passed my passport to another immigration
    officer who interrogated me at length and checked
    their records to see if my application for extension
    of my stay in the u.s was actually approved by the
    i.n.s.

    After about 45 minutes of checking he gave me back my
    passport and said "you are free to go. you can only
    remain in this country till the end of august and no
    more extensions."

    I checked my 1-94 and my passport and i discovered
    that he had written on both the words: No AOS, No COS,
    No EOS.

    My question now is what are my chances of getting
    another B2 visa or any kind of visa for that matter
    with those kind of annotations on my passport from the
    American embassy in my country of residence?

    Also is there any way i can change my status in the
    U.S with those kind of annotations on my passport and
    is there any medium for appealing the immigration
    officer`s decision?

    I am looking forward to your reply.

    sincerely,
    sandra

    NO Adjustment, Change, Extension of Status are reffering to this trip and would (should) not affect future issuance of any kind of visa - as long as you play by the terms given.
    IO suspected that you had an intent other than just visiting, and warned you against misusing tourist visa to enter the USA in order to stay.

    Since it is a warning and recommendation, you can't appeal.

    Are you thinking about changing the status after the explicit no COS? Think twice... I am not saying it can't be done, but you would have to have realy good arguments (something extreme has happened since you entered the USA that prevents you to go back).

    Nobody can answer such question, other than telling you that:

    1. As long as you don't violate the terms of your visa/INA you will remain eligible to apply for a visa in future.

    2. Issuance of visa is discretionary.
    What impact those stamps will have? That will be determined when you apply for a visa in future.

    If you can and are willing to pay very large amount of money and retain a team of three to five highly qualified immigration attorneys ready to take it all the way to Federal Appeals Court, then try and see what happens (prospects are not good anyway, it doesn't appear that POE Officers abused their power in any way or did anything contrary to what allowed under the law).

    Simplest and wisest course of action: confirm to terms of your visa/annotations stamped and life will be so much easier for you.

    Good luck

    of course, that illiterate a$$wipe mike-2007 must be the expert on all immigration matters....if so, why isn't he the head of the Dept of Homeland Security? Because they don't need another stable cleaner. Jagoffs like him who claim that our border officials are '****s' don't understand our laws - they forget (assuming he could ever have remembered) that entering the US is a privilege for those from other countries, I 751 or not.
    Obviously you have been using your tourist visa for purposes other than tourism and you are about to lose the visa....good...that's what happens to visa cheats.
