  • Illegal.. Want to return home

    I'm out of status for last 5 years and would like to return back to India. I have few questions.

    1) Since I don't have vaild USA visa, most of the european countries require that I must have a transit visa in order to change planes even though I won't be leaving the airport. But the problem is that since I'm out of status none of these european consulates will issue me transit visa. Does anyone know of a country which doesn't require a transit visa?

    2) Will there be problem at the airport when I leave USA? I'll have to leave from JFK (NewYork) and I was told that there are immigration checks at the Airport while leaving. Is that correct?

    3) How long will I be barred from reentering USA?

    Please give me any other advice or tip that you might think will help me get to INDIA asap.

    Thanks for the help in advance.

          You will be subject to INS inspection at JFK due to the new Exit registration system implemented recently. At that time, they'd find out you've overstayed and a record is sure to be entered. You'll be barred for 10 years before you can even apply for a visa.

            if Europe is a problem then try the Transpacific route through asia. Try going from JFK to hongkong then hongkong or any other asian countries. I'm not sure about INS at exit. I usually use LAX and all what was needed was to check it with the airline and then straight to the boarding gate.

              I heard things have changed since January as INS now tracks everyone entering and LEAVING the country. You may want to go to JFK and check it out.

                I too want to return home. But if they arrest illegal aliens ( even at the airport because of the newly-implemented Exit Registration system), then how can I go home? In other words, I am not going to the airport just to be arrested and jailed. If I will go to the airport it is because I am sick and tired of being illegal and the prospect of being treated like a criminal, so I would prefer to go back home. So what is my solution?

                    How hard is it to understand...You broke the immigration law by overstaying. I can relate to your scenario but you need to realize that you can be arrested and jailed anywhere you are in soil of the U.S., You are basically not authorized to be here any longer therefore you are an illegal alien. Whethere its the airport or not, you will be arrested once you are found to be illegal.

                      so, if we leave we will be arrested, if we stay we will be arrested.
                      What is third option?

                        There will be no problem at the Airport when you will be leaving. They donot arrest people, who are leaving for good. You might be barred for 10 years to reenter the United States. You can start Suspension of Deportation proceedings before the Immigration Judge and in front of the Judge you can ask for permission for Voluntary Deportation and within the time allowed by the Judge, you can leave the country. Thereafter you can reapply for Visa from your country.
                        Good luck.

                              1. If a illegal ( over stayed visa ) apply for Suspension of Deportation before an Immigration Judge and ask for Voluntary Deportation, what documents do they need to file? After the permission is granted, will that person be jailed till he/she actually departs USA? Could someone please explain how it works.


                              2. What if someone do not have a I-94, illegal ( over stayed visa) leaves USA for good ?

                              Thanks.
