  • Report to US Embassy

    Someone posed this query and I'm passing it to you for an anwer.

    The guy self-deported meaning he left the US by departing from the airport. He had a deportation order but took a while to leave without the immigration people physically removing him. He's now in his home country. He's barred from re-entry...not sure if it's 5 or 10 years. But the guy wants to return to the US someday even for a brief visit. Other than becoming out of status, he had a clean record in the US. Question: Should he report to the US Embassy or Consulate in his country informing them that he has already left the US? Because since he self-deported, the CIS has no idea if he's still in the US or not. What benefit does is it to report to the US Embassy and what if he does not?

      Depending on why the deportation order was given, it may be difficult to reenter. Basically, he has to wait until the ban period is up. He can however file for the waiver at the consulate/embassy.

      Without any detailed information, this is my best educated guess.

        Thanks Hudson. I don't know the detail myself. I just know that he overstayed in the US for 10 years and fought his case up but lost. He could have hidden and remained in the US but decided to leave on his own which is referred to as "self-deport". Waiver is a step to re-enter; but the question was more on whether or not he should inform the US Embassy in his country that he has left the US. Let's separate the issue of waiver and reporting to the US Embassy. Again, the question is should he tell the embassy that he has left the US?

          The embassy will know anyway when he applies. His name is added to a database that is both shared by USCIS and the Foreign Service. He will be asked and eventually denied. Anyway, he needs to wait and withdraw the application to visit the US, even if its womething to be required.

            Hudson, a lawyer just informed that the guy must report to the US Embassy closest to his home and tell them that he has left the US. This is for proper recording. Otherwise, the CIS doesn't know that he has left the US and his bar would not commence until they know. This also benefits the guy who has plans of returning to US.

              Reporting to the embassy will take care of a few loose ends and he will probably sign a couple of statements to the effect that he may be banned for entering the US, acceptance of the deportation, and probably a signed affadivit gicing the details of when he left, when he arrived, etc. Wish him the best of luck.
