Could be either nothing, three or five years, depending on the circumstances.

My colleagues are correct, failure to appear is very serious.

Contact an attorney in the US, have a Skype consultation, ask him/her to get a FOIA of the EOIR file.

It depends on whether the Immigration Judge ordered you removed from the US. It could be as much as 10 years.

The immigration judge must have ordered your deportation in abstentia. You are no subject to the 10 year bar.

Normally, in cases like that one of our attorneys appears in client's behalf and requests either:
a. Voluntary Departure, or:
b. Termination of removal proceedings, to avoid removal and the 10 year inadmissibility bar.

Since this was not done in your case, you now have to wait at least 10 years, unless you get married to a USC and file an inadmissibility Waiver. Please speak with an experience US immigration attorney over a Skype consultation.
