Does spouse petitioner need to be in the US before spouse beneficiary goes through POE?

Hello, sorry if I have posted in the wrong place. My situation is this, my husband and I had planned to travel to USA together after he got his cr1 approval. Now due to medical reasons I cannot fly until a few months later. My question is will it be a problem if the petitioner doesn't fly with the beneficiary or meet him in the USA? Will the border agents even ask? I want my husband to travel before any immigration-related changes happen after January 20th (even though he has his visa already).

Thanks in advance.

You need to be in the USA before or at the same time as the beneficiary.  You could travel with him and then return to Pakistan for a visit to get your medical check up, but you do need to travel with him.


There are no changes to immigration policy scheduled for January 20th; only the via expiry will govern his getting to the USA.
