Incomplete Conversion

Question:
Is a mal velo Tavel [one who circumcised but did not immerse in a ritual mikva to complete the conversion] obligated to complete the geirut or may he regret and marry a Goya [non Jew]?

As long as the conversion was not completed, he remains a non Jew and may still decide to remain a non Jew. In that case he could marry a non Jew as any other non Jew could.
