      If the visa applicant has Section 222(f), can they get a visa - what are the chances. Also, if the same person has a P-3 visa approval, what happens.

        What would happen if soomeone came to the US under a Visa Waiver and filed an adjustment of status, but he decides to return to his country after the 90 days passed but before any decision of his change of status has been made/declared. can he come back under the visa waiver or would he have to apply for a b2?
