I bought a Delta airline ticket for a friend from Bulgaria to come to Cancun, Mexico. On her way back , a week later, according to the ticket issued, she changes planes(of the same company-Delta) in Atlanta, USA . Her layover time there is 3 hrs. and then she departs for Amsterdam, Holland and from there back to Bulgaria. She is a bulgarian national with only a bulgarian passport. Is this going to present a problem for her layover stay in Atlanta, USA and if so what needs to be done?

Judith, My Colombian boyfriend wants to visit Europe next February. We saw a cheap tic

Hi Judith,My Colombian boyfriend wants to visit Europe next February. We saw a cheap ticket, but it has a transfer in Miami. The website says we shouldn't buy the ticket before having the C-1 visa, but you probably know how fast prices change. So my question is: is it common that they refuse a C-1 visa to Colombian people? And what are the reason for which they could refuse the visa?Thanks in advance,Rosalie

I am now a German citizen who lived in the US from

Hi,I am now a German citizen who lived in the US from october1989 until august 1990. I had only a transit visa ( 30 days ) at that time , and had a south-American passport at that time . I entered the US legally (in New York, with the transit visa) and lived in New York. I worked also illegally in that time ( kind of job no Americans would do ). I had no troubles whatsoever with the law or immigration.My questions are:1) Can I travel to the US now without having problems with the fact that I stayed illegally in that time ? I left the US without problems, there were no controls just the flying company ( PAN AM at that time ) took a piece of paper that was attached to my passport.2) I know I can enter the US with a waiver visa, but will I get problems when entering again ?3) When filling up the web form application for the waiver visa , there is the question "(8) Have you ever stayed in the United States longer than the admission period granted to you by the U.S. government? " - what should I answer here ?And how should I answer the question "Are you currently seeking employment in the United States or were you previously employed in the United States without prior permission from the U.S. government" ?( I don't know if this information could be relevant, but I worked in Germany for the US Army ( legally, under German Law) helping training soldiers before they went to war , inside an american military base in bavaria - not employed directly by the US-Army, but by a german company that offered services to the US Army )ThanksR B.

Guillermo, I thought of another question relating to what

Hi Guillermo, I thought of another question relating to what we discussed this weekend. I was going over my friend's resume and found that he has over 15 years experience, but most of that experience is on ships with corporate headquarters in the UnitedStates. They do have foreign offices, the ships are registered outside the US, and his experiences were in Europe, Asia, Tahiti, and South America. Will this be a problem for the requirement for experience outside the United States?
