No, when you filled out the visa waiver form on the back, you agreed to not being able to adjust your status as a part of the visa waiver program.

No, not for the Visa Waiver participant nations. It has to be done from outside the US.

First of all, the term "waiver" comes up in Immigration law more than once and, in more than one case the term is related to a visa. Most commonly, "visa waiver" and "waiver of inadmissibility." There is a difference between a visa waiver and a waiver of inadmissibility. A visa waiver applies when a qualifying alien comes to the United States without formally applying for a waiver at a US consulate.

To change the visa status from E9 to E7 in Korea, simply visit the immigration offices.

This was not advisable course of action in my opinion. However, he should be able to adjust status by filing the I-485 and I-130 (and I-765 if needed). It's advisable not to leave the country until he receives his green card (even if advance parole is granted). http://www.dixonimmigration.com/index.php?pid=2

Yes, but it must be spontaneous, not planned at the time you entered. And a genuine marriage, but if you are a visa waiver overstay (meaning you over staid the 90 day period of authorized stay that the visa waiver permits), then you can't. Unless you hold a 245i (an act that was in affect--now closed-- in 2001), which allowed anyone to apply for status while being in the country regardless of any status (undocumented, visa overstays, etc).If you going to do it with a visa waiver, you do have to prove the marriage is real because it is very suspicious that in 90 days you fall in love and are about to get married--immigration will put you under a microscope. If you have been in a relationship with someone in US for couple of months (either long distance or with sporadic visits to US), the best way to do this then is by petitioning a finance visa. This petitions should be done while you are outside the country. The visa is given pretty fast. Once you get to the US, you have like 60 days to get married. (usually 45 to 60 days after filing).

Yes, you can change your status. You should go to the INS and apply for change of status before your current visa expires.

Filing for a U.S. visa can take anywhere from a few weeks to years, depending on the type of visa you want, your status in relation to the United States, and how successfully you complete the paperwork. Though no applicant can be guaranteed a visa,

What do you mean green card changed for a visa? A visa to do what? Why would you want to change a permanent lawful residence status for a visa?

Your have to be invited by a legitimate US based company to work there; This means that they are going to sponsor your work visa. Then you have to take their job offer to the nearest US embassy or consulate general near where you live and apply for a work visa. If you are in the US with a different category of visa, you should go to the Immigration and Naturalization Service (the INS). *People who travel to the US under Visa Waiver Program cannot change their status while in the US.

Shockingly no- Greece is a Visa Waiver Country

User Avatar

A visa is not required, as the UK is a member country of the visa waiver program.

You have to apply for a waiver/pardon since you have a deportation record. If you are accepted that waiver/pardon, then you can apply for a visa. However, being approved for a waiver/pardon does not guarantee the visa approval and, similarly, having a visa in your passport does not guarantee your entry into that country.

The penalties are that you are subject to arrest and deportation at any time. Your visa would be cancelled (if caught) and it will be difficult to get another visa/overstay waiver. Finally, unless you marry a US citizen, you cannot adjust your status while you are an overstay.

You can extend your stay in US by applying with Form I-539 for visa extension.Application To Extend/Change Non-immigrant Status, Form I-539 should be submitted with proof for current status for most of the US visas.The filing fee is $290.

No, a visa is not necessary, as Japan is in the visa waiver program, but that would require an ESTA from you.
