WHAT TO DO IF THE ICELAND VOLCANO IS DELAYING YOUR DEPARTURE

Rate this Entry

If you're stuck in the US because of the Iceland volcano and it is causing you to overstay your I-94 departure date, you have options. Customs and Border Protection has just posted this notice:

Travel Advisory: Delays Due to Icelandic Volcano Eruption

(04/17/2010) If you or someone you know is stranded in the United States because of the airport closures in Europe due to the Icelandic volcano eruption and is about to exceed their authorized stay as a direct result of these closures, there are two avenues for relief:

If the traveler is at the airport and traveling under the Visa Waiver Program (VWP) and unable to depart timely, as a result of airport closures or flight delays/cancellations, travelers should:

1.    Contact the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) office at the airport or;
2.    Contact the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) office.

Both agencies have provided staff with guidance on the applicable legal authorities under the VWP in circumstances such as these.

If persons are traveling under a visa, they should contact the nearest USCIS office and follow the instructions at the following link: ( USCIS - Extend My Stay )

While this link recommends initiating the process 45 days in advance, USCIS is providing guidance on how to handle these cases over this weekend.
