Just looking for advice for the following situation.
I was a student at the University of South Carolina for 4 and half years. For one of these years I did not attend school but then returned to school after. I know this broke the terms of my visa and I should have left. When I did leave in Dec 2006 for Christmas then went back in January 2007 I was refused entry. The following was written in my passport:
(On the F-1 visa itself)
and also on a seperate page:
212(a)(7)(A)(i)(I) App. withdrawn
Now what does this mean for my chances of getting a tourist visa to the USA? I am well settled back in my home country (UK) have a long term girlfriend and I am a professional poker player. I would like to go to Las Vegas for the World Series of Poker.
One other thing to mention is that I have been arrested for theft in the UK but was cautioned and did not go to court or prison.
Any advice would be most welcomed. Thank you for your time and effort.
