I would like to ask a question: I am italian, living in Italy, but in 2002 I worked as music teacher in Usa for some months under the condition of VWP (because I had a boyfried there, so I was trying to collect money to pay a lawyer to try to get a h1 visa so that I could work legally), but unfortunatly during my last travel I was questioned to SF airport and to make things shorter I did confess I was working even though I figuered in Usa a a tourist (with the visa waiver program -90 days max to stay)..Of course I tried to explain as better as I could, but with a load of shame and embarass I really felt bad Before getting deported back to Europe the same day, the policewoman told me that I lost the possibility to come back to Usa with the VWP but I could only after getting a regular visa from Usa embassy in Italy or if I knew anyone who could sponsor me. They took fingerprints, photos etc. and they printed into my passport a sentence like "you must obtain a new visa to enter this country again" and I didnt hear anything about banning or something like that.
The matter is: will I have to get a visa anyway till the day I'll be dead if I want to come back to Usa? If yes, will it be hard to ask a touristic visa for example to the embassy due to prior problems? Did I lose forever the possibility to come to Usa with the VWP?
Sorry for so many questions!! Thanks for answering, ciao!
