Being that is site is about travel stories and information, I have brought my immigration question and response for which someone in same position can learn from, about applying for USA ESTA after overstaying my previous visa in the USA.
It happens that I am a dual national (UK and POLAND) and would like to travel to the US.
I previously have two US visas (both J-1), and I overstayed the second one, this was long ago, it was 6 years ago now.
At that time I held only one nationality (POLAND) and I travelled on a different passport from the one I have now.
Fast forward to now, I now hold a UK passport and a new Poland one.
So my question is, what are my chances if I apply for an ESTA?
I don’t have any criminal record anywhere in the world, and my previous I-94 never expire as it was marked as D/S (duration of stay).
Never had any deportation proceedings, nor received any communication from USCIS telling me to leave, etc.
Does anyone know what databases they check against or has anyone been in a similar situation?
This is my question?
I will appreciate your response to my question.
