A Voluntary Departure is referred to the departure of a foreign national from the United States without an order of removal. The departure may or may not have been preceded by a hearing before an immigration judge. A foreign national allowed to voluntarily depart concedes removability but does not have a bar to seeking re-admission at a port-of-entry, at any time. Failure to depart within the time granted results in a fine and a ten-year bar to several other forms of relief from deportation.
