Hi - my husband recieved his Waiver of Ineligibilty in November which was granted for one year. We sent off his passport and recieved it back with what looked like a Visa inside.

We booked our trip to Orlando and I added a surprise flight onto the end of our holiday to LA for a week as under 'entries' on his Visa - it states M (multiple?)

We travel next month and I am going into panic mode. I have tried to contact the Embassy but am being sent round in circles trying to speak to an operator.

Can someone please aanswer the two questions I have :

1. Does M under entries on the Visa actually mean multiple and does this mean that he will be able to enter in both Orlando and LA?

2. Does he need to take anything with him besides his Passport / Visa? Should he have a letter or anything from the letter re. the waiver or is the waiver literally what has been printed in his passport?

My husband keeps telling me not to worry but I'm a panicker!

Has anyone travelled using a Waiver of Ineligibility who knows the answers? HELP!!

A flight from Orlando to LA is internal, you're not entering a second time.

Quoting Andyf

A flight from Orlando to LA is internal, you're not entering a second time.

I thought that but read on other threads that it is classed as re entering but I guess with multiple entries on the Visa (M) it should be fine anyway right?

Ditto Andy. An internal flight is immaterial. Stop worrying.

Cheers,
Terry

The M (multiple) indication on the visa means that you would be allowed to leave the country (for example, take a week during the year you visit the US) to go to Mexico or Canada) and then re-enter without a problem (perform multiple entries).

But as Andy and Terry already posted above, when you fly from Orlando to LA (as long as you aren't making a stop somewhere outside the US during this route) is an internal trip--and there will be no US customs or immigration officers at either end that you will need to talk to.
