There is this little-known list of countries for which a ban is run and operated by the immigration department of the United States. People from those countries who are already residing in the U.S. may return to these countries, but it may be nearly impossible to come back after they visit their homelands. If you really need to return to your native country for a visit, but your country is on the list of banned nations for immigration, you are going to need some major legal assistance from an immigration attorney. Here is how this is typically going to work.
Find out If Your Home Country Is on the Banned List
The banned country list changes from week to week, and month to month. What is a banned country today may not be banned next month. An immigration lawyer knows the website for checking the list of banned countries. He or she can check the list to see if your native country is on it, or if the U.S. government is currently considering placing your native country on the banned list anytime soon. If your country is on the list, or will be on the list in the next month, it is advisable that you fill out forms that will allow you to return to the U.S. after you visit family in your country of origin.
Emergency Family Visit and Short Duration Emigration/Immigration Forms
The U.S. has very strict rules regarding the banned countries. Anyone may go there, but unless you are a naturalized or native-born U.S. citizen, you are going to find it very difficult to return to the U.S. There are special circumstances for which you may return to your native country for very short visits. This typically involves family emergencies and funerals or the settlement of estates in a foreign country. You will have to file some very special legal forms to make the request to return and re-enter the U.S. after your visit to a banned country. The immigration lawyer can help you file these forms.
DO NOT Lose These Documents!
When your immigration lawyer files these forms, and the U.S. government approves of your visit, the government will send either you or your lawyer documents that you will need to carry with you at all times. When you come back to the U.S. in a few days, you must present these documents at the customs gate at the airport. Otherwise you will be detained and not be allowed to re-enter the United States.
Hello and welcome, I'm Winfred Paulo. I have a passion for civil court cases of all kinds. Some time back, I ended up in the thick of a civil case after a lengthy dispute with my neighbor. The dispute went on for years and ended badly with an incident that landed us both in court. We had to prove our side of the case in an effort to obtain a positive outcome and recoup our losses. Unfortunately, I lost the case due to a lack of evidence. Since then, I've maintain a strong interest in civil cases and their proceedings. I will share information about civil cases on this site to help others understand these proceedings better. I may talk about legal terms, and expected outcomes for each case type. I hope you visit often to learn more. Thanks for stopping by my website.
