Hello Brian:

Will you be going to the US embassy in Trinidad for an immigrant visa interview? Did you qualify for such visa through a relative?
A visa overstay will be relevant during your interview. You may be requested to file a waiver of inadmissibility based on accrued unlawful presence in the United States.
It is at the consular officer's discretion.
