I have a friend who is pregnant not a citizen but married. She wants her hubby to be there for the birth of her baby so her OB/GYN gave her a letter to send to the Embassy. So she wanted to know how she can start the process HELP PLEASE!!!!!!

The pregnant woman is a green card holder then?

The husband applies for the tourist visa. He must show strong ties to his home country. Reasons that he will return. Having a wife and baby (soon) in the US may hurt his chances of approval but it certainly doesn't hurt to try. He can bring the letter issued by the ob-gyne as additional documentation.

Good luck!

How long till the birth? It may be easier (and cheaper!) for her to travel to his country and give birth there.

He applies for tourist visa not something she needs to be involved in.

What is his nationality.

No harm trying.

My fiancee wasn't able to be here for the birth of our baby. We didn't even try for a tourist visa because we knew he didn't have strong enough ties to his country.

So we skyped at prenatal visits so he could be a part of everything. My OB would speak to him on Skype at the appointments. He would see the ultrasounds on Skype.

Before my due date I called the hospital to makes sure I could use Skype in the delivery room. They said yes but we weren't allowed to video record in L&D. I checked out their wifi to make sure it was going to work for video calls.

So my fiancee was able to be there for us via Skype in the delivery room. Not ideal but we are grateful he was able to be present in any capacity.

Good luck to your friend!

I think she's due in november her belly is too big they won't let her travel

She can fly without issues until week 36 though some airlines have slightly different rules if the flight goes mainly over water but she should be perfectly fine flying unless it's a high risk pregnancy.

The pregnant friend might prefer giving birth to the baby here for the benefit of been a natural born citizen...
