hm, that did not really answer my question..
I spent 67 days on Hawaii in December and January, but only 18 of them were in 2013.
I then spent 84 days on Hawaii from the end of February till middle of May and am planning to go back in about 3 months but only for 3 weeks, then I have to leave again for work and would be going back to Hawaii 3 or 4 weeks later and hopefully have some time off to spend another 2 months there.
I want to figure out if I will be allowed to do that.
I am professional kiteboarder and am paid via sponsorship contracts, so I travel for fun but also for training, and Hawaii has some of the best conditions in the world...
o.k., let me put it in different words:
would I be illegally staying in the US if I stay more than 180 days in the USA within one calendar year if none of the stays is longer than 90 days and I am allowed into the country?
thanks a lot,
