Hello Everybody!

I have a question about my k3 visa, I hope anyone can help me. I am a k3 visa holder which has a 2 years validity, I arrived in the U.S. on April 2010. After 2months of stay my husband and I found out that I am pregnant with our first child, I can't go to see a doctor because seeing a doctor is real expensive here in the U.S. and I got no health insurance yet. So we decided that i'll just go back home and get my medications for a cheap price. I know I dont have to file for re entry permit as my k3 visa doesn't need to file for Advance Parole, so i can go back to Philippines anytime. Does anyone know if theres any limit of days or months for me to stay outside the U.S. even if I'm not required to file for re entry permit? :help::help::help:

Since you're on K-3 and not in AOS process, it's 2 years - until the expiration date of your visa.

How about if I am currently in AOS process?

While with K-3 you can leave whenever you want, since tyou're apparently awaiting AOS, you'd want to stay for biometrics and possible interview. When you get the green card, you don't want to be outside the US without an advance parole for longer than 6 months.
