Hi there,i'm an italian citizen and back on august 2001 i was deported cause i overstayed my visa waiver(i overstayed 176 days).I was caught on a greyhound bus from dallas to las vegas and taken into custody at el paso ins centre.after 2 weeks i was sent back to italy(i did pay myself for my ticket home,i've asked to do it cause i tought it would look good if i wanted to gain reentry to the US).
i do believe i've got a 10 year ban but i'm not really sure about it.Whats the procedure in order to reapply entry right now?or should i just forget it and wait august 2011 that's when the 10 year would expire?
and let's assume i want to go back to the states after august 2011,what are my chances of getting a visitor or tourist visa?I was also looking to invest in a property in the states shortly,would be any chance that make things easier for me once i'm gonna apply for a visa to reentry the states the fact that i'll have a house there?
i've also filed for the FOIA and i've been waiting over a year and half to receive it so i can show a lawyer my file and see what he thinks.
All your advises and suggestions are greatly appreciated
Looking forward to receive a lot of answers
