    Default Visiting the U.S. After 17 Year Exclusion

    Hi - I served 18 months in a US federal prison for a drug charge and when released and deported (excluded) in 1995, I was told that I could not apply for re-entry for 17 years. Does this mean than I have a 17-year ban? If I did attempt to cross the border before the 17 years is up (my name is changed through marriage), what would the consequences be? After the 17 years? I really only need to pass through the US on my way to Mexico.

    Thank you!

    Yes.

    You would be detained and deported, and possibly given a lifetime ban.

    After the 17 years?
    Upon proper application, you may be allowed entry.
