Is it possible to go to Haiti to get your visa if you already live in the US? 3 Answers as of March 11, 2011

Wouldn’t it be a problem if you go to Haiti to answer to an appointment for your visa by the immigration? Is there a law to protect you from staying in Haiti for five years before you return back to the US?

If you are in the USA illegally, and you are required to meet in Port-au-Prince for your consular appointment, you could, in a weird turn of the law, be automatically barred from coming back for at least 5 or 10 years. You would then need, before you go, to get a waiver through what is called advance parole, to allow you to re-enter without the 10-year bar. If you need assistance, feel free to call or e-mail for an appointment for a consultation.

If you have been requested to travel to Haiti to pick up your visa, then you could be triggering either a 3/10 year bar, once you leave the U.S. Contact my office for a free consultation.
