FLEITAS, PLLC può aiutarti ad estendere la tua permanenza attraverso il Visa Waiver Program, se hai comprovate e gravi esigenze.

Il Visa Waiver Program o ESTA (Sistema elettronico per l’autorizzazione del viaggio) è un programma che consente ai cittadini di determinati paesi (38 paesi per la precisione) di richiedere l’ammissione negli Stati Uniti utilizzando una procedura semplificata. Il richiedente può utilizzare un’interfaccia Web per rispondere a determinate domande e può ottenere all’esito dello scrutinio positivo l’ESTA online. Ciò a differenza di altri paesi dove gli utenti, non avendo lo stesso beneficio, devono recarsi presso un consolato degli Stati Uniti e richiedere un visto di tipo B1/B2. Il soggiorno attraverso l’ESTA puo’ essere concesso per un massimo di 90 giorni.

Di recente, soprattutto a causa dell’epidemia di Coronavirus (Covid-19) e dei divieti di viaggio attualmente imposti dagli USA su gran parte dell’Europa, i visitatori che si trovano negli Stati Uniti in questo momento potrebbero essere nell’impossibilità di lasciare il paese prima della scadenza dei 90 giorni. Pertanto, il governo degli Stati Uniti potrebbe garantire un periodo di permanenza extra attraverso la procedura chiamata – Satisfactory Departure – non superiore a 30 giorni. Questa procedura, che normalmente va presentata presso gli uffici USCIS, a causa della chiusura degli stessi, può essere presenta presso i principali scali aerei americani come Miami, Boston, New York, New Jersey, Chicago e altri, recandosi ai Deferred Inspection Sites, che fanno parte del CBP – Custom and Border Protection (https://www.cbp.gov/contact/ports/deferred-inspection-sites).

As COVID-19 continues to disrupt everyone’s daily life, many foreign nationals currently in the United States find themselves unable to depart the United States before their periods of admission expire. As borders continue to close and airplanes are grounded, foreign nationals, whether admitted into the United States through the Visa Waiver Program (“VWP”)—which allows foreign nationals of certain countries to travel to the United States for tourism or business and stay for up to 90 days without obtaining a visa—or through different kinds of visas, are left wondering what they can do to avoid overstaying their authorized stays.

One’s inability to leave the United States, does not suspend U.S. Immigration laws. Accordingly, anyone currently visiting the United States, whether with a visa or through the VWP, must ensure that they comply with their authorized periods of stay. Some individuals may be able to apply for an extension of their current status, or change their current status to a different status, in order to avoid accruing unlawful presence in the United States. However, those traveling under the VWP, are ineligible to change or extend their status and can only request a period of Satisfactory Departure, that if granted, provides additional time (up-to 30 additional days) to depart the United States without overstaying an authorized stay and accruing unlawful presence.

If the COVID-19 emergency is preventing you, or anyone you know, from departing the United States in a timely manner, please know that the attorneys at FLEITAS, PLLC are able to assist you. For more information and/or assistance, please e-mail Lorenzo Arca, Esq., at: larca@fleitaslaw.com or Avv. Alessandro Conte, at: aconte@fleitaslaw.com.

Florida residents who are apprehensive about purchasing a home may be pleased to discover that doing so may be more affordable than they think. This is despite the increases in mortgage interest rates and home prices and the stiff competition from other buyers. Reports show it is less expensive to purchase a home than rent one in 66 percent of the counties in the United States. “The monthly rent amounts of three-bedroom apartments were compared to monthly house payments. The study showed that it was actually more affordable to purchase a home and have lower payments than when paying rent.” Says attorney Roberto Fleitas III. However, the affordability of getting a home may not last as interest rates are expected to continue to increase. If mortgage rates follow suit, it may become more affordable to rent a home than to buy one. You deserve an attorney who is going to give your case the personal touch and the attention it deserves. The Law Offices of Fleitas PLLC, takes care of their most important asset, YOU.
