Overstay then work visa

Postby Bazzer » Thu Sep 14, 2017 5:09 pm

Hi, I'm coming to the end of my tourist visa limit (I got 90 days on last entry as said I had flight at end September but will have spent almost 7 months here this year) and am still seeking work. Only been looking properly for last month and have a couple of interviews coming up but no chance of getting paperwork done in time. I thought a friend with a company could help me out if stuck but doesn't look likely now.

If I overstayed and then got work would I have a problem getting the visa?

If overstaying is a bad idea, what would people advise for a border hop to plead for extra time? I've heard Tacna might be better than Ecuador border.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Can you sing and play a guitar? Preferably country music.

Then I know a place where you can make a buck or two.
They aren't fussy about visas and stuff.
I always see gringos playing in that joint.

I'm afraid not but this is really about the visa element rather than finding work!

If you overstay then you'll be denied any type of visa. Unless you can prove that if you return to your home country you'll be a victim of persecution because for example you are muslim or gay. Or your home country is too dangerous to return too due to an ongoing war.

Another way to get a visa is if you get married to a Peruvian. Then you will get the right to work.
