    Default Visiting Us with a 10 Year Bar - Non-Immigrant Waiver Needed

    Hi there!

    I was wondering if anyone here could please help with information about how to apply for a non-immigrant waiver to enter the US from Canada to VISIT. I am currently a Canadian Citizen who lives in Canada with a clean record from both countries.

    My family moved to America and overstayed our visitor visa (my parents fault) I was only 9 years old at the time so i had nothing to do with it consciously. We got asked to voluntarily leave the country and we did (without letting them know we officially left) a little past our due date and got stuck with a 10 year bar a couple years later after I tried to clear things up.

    I have visited the US on a waiver in my US Visa while I was still a permanent resident of Canada but that waiver has expired and I am a citizen of Canada now. I read that the rules have changed when you are a citizen with a 10 year bar as opposed to a permanent resident. I don't need a Visa anymore to enter just a non-immigrant waiver... right?

    Help!

    You voluntarily left when you were how old? If you were below the age of 18, the overstay shouldn't have triggered ineligibility.

    I was 3 weeks past 18 when my family and I left to Canada. I then officially claimed my departure 2 years after that due to lack of information. I am now trying to figure out how to get me in the US to visit my old friends with my Canadian Citizenship.
