Washington, DC asked in Immigration Law for New Jersey

Q: If a person meets all the requirements for AVR, travels to country it applies to, can they be denied re-entry to US?

If a person meets all the requirements for Automatic Visa Re-validation and travels to a country it applies to, is it 100% guaranteed that they will be able to re-enter the US? I know immigration is a tough/sticky topic right now. CBP can detain anyone they seem suspicious right? I want to travel outside the US, like to Puerto Rico or Caribbean with my fiancé. He is on F-1 status in university, everything is valid, (I-94, etc) but his visa is expired. And if there is a issue at the airport how would we go about it?

A: There are no 100% guarantees in law of anything else. Well, except that life ends in death.

A: If the person is otherwise ineligible to reenter the US, then s/he could be barred from doing so, even under the AVR program. If you have any concerns at all, we recommend you speak with an immigration attorney.
