I am a UK citizen who is in the grace period of my J1 visa. I want to get an ESTA via the VWP for tourism.
From what I understand I can go to Mexico/Canada through the land border and return on an ESTA. However, I'm worried that I might have my request refused, or that I have to wait until the end of my grace period to return.
Also, would I be able to drive my US-registered car back in?
