hello

I stayed in the US for about 80 days on a 90 days ESTA and then crossed the border to Mexico before the 90 days run out. Now I have been in Mexico for about 3 months and planing to go back to the US for few days.
will I have any problems crossing the border to the US?

I didn't have any possibilities to register my leaving from the US as there is no office to give me a stamp, however I kept my bus ticket, which I bought in Mexico on the day of leaving and other receipts while staying in Mexico.

thanks

As usual with almost all Visa questions on this forum you fail to post the single most important piece of information: What's your nationality.

That said, under the Visa Waiver Program time spent in Canada, Mexico, and adjacent islands usually counts towards the maximum of 90 days stay allowed under the program. In other words the 90 days doesn't reset just because you went to Mexico.

Cheers,
Terry

I read that I dont need to have an ESTA when I cross the border to the US by land. What kind of visa will I receive when I cross the border?

I'm no expert, but I think all you have to do is fill out Form I-94 at a land crossing.

I'm sure you've read this: http://germany.usembassy.gov/visa/vwp/

Good luck with your research.

Cheers,
Terry

that's sound good, If I only need the I-94 form.

however, I am not sure, if they will say that, I am over the 90 days limit and cant re-enter.
