Help!! How to extend a IR-1/CR-1 visa - Casablanca Consulate

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi!

My husband needs to extend his IR-1 /CR -1 Visa. He needs to extend his visa because he works for the Moroccan Ministry of the Interior as a fire fighter and they will not issue his dismission which he requested more than 2 months ago - nor will they give him the papers authorizing his travel outside of Morocco.

My questions are -

How can my husband get into the Casablanca Consulate to request a visa extension??? when they only take appointments for everything BUT immigrant visa services or questions.

What procedures or paperwork is involved in a visa extension?

Thank you - Ally & Omar

Maybe you should get an info-pass and ask if they can arrange an appt

for him in Morocco, or get your senator to call that embassy...but the US

cannot compel them to issue a exit permission since that's his country

Can he get them to allow him to go on vacation outside of Morocco? All he has to do is enter the US to activate the CR-1 visa which becomes a GC and he could return to Morocco, but it would be best if he re-enters the US within 6 months.

no. no no and no.

USCIS (infopass) and DoS do not help each other in the manner you are hoping.

NO !

a Congressional Inquiry will be useful into the IV Unit at Casablanca to get the dates reset, but usually for a visa to be re-validated, the dates are checked on the police clearance certificates and medical exam. if over a thresh-hold duration of time, must get new ones.


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !
