Domodedovo Terror Attack: Expedite for Russia?

Filed: AOS (pnd) Country: Philippines

Yesterday, January 24, there was a devastating terror attack in Domodedovo Airport in Moscow. 35 people were killed and dozens more wounded. The terrorist group responsible for this is still at large.

I do not want my bride to live in a country where there is an active terrorist group on the loose that made a mass strike in an airport she uses all of the time.

So since fiances from a country where you might get cholera all get expedites, why shouldn't fiances who are in danger of being blown up by terrorists get them too?

Let's hear from other VJ members with Russian fiances. How do we make this happen?

Then should they offer them to people from the UK, Spain, Ireland who have all been victims of attacks in the recent past?

There was also a bus explosion in the Philippines yesterday, so awful.

I honestly don't think there would be any harm in asking.

The only way to find out is to ask. Good luck Al.

Expedite requires hardship/emergency on the side of the USC not the Alien Fiancé(e)/Spouse.

This. :thumbs:

Allowing your fiancee to obtain a visa to come to the US is a courtesy to the US citizen - not the foreign fiancee. They will consider an extreme hardship or emergent situation for the US citizen, but not for the foreign beneficiary. If you want them to consider an emergency for the foreign beneficiary then she should apply for asylum, refugee, or other humanitarian based visa to the US.

What you say here is a mockery of the US Govt. for attempting to use this tragic event of others and seeminly selfish of you to even think this is a way to get YOUR BRIDE here any earlier then the rest who wait patiently!

But the Haitians can use the earthquake to get expedites for themselves. What is the difference? Why is one country's tragedy a valid vehicle for expedites, but another country's tragedy is not. This is the point I was trying to make. I guess it was lost on a lot of people.

I have been and still am totally against the TPS program and any other form of large scale expedites for Haiti and any other country as well.

As for our service men and women, they should get an expedite because they earned it. But an expedite simply because you or your fiance live in a country that sustained a tragedy, no matter how large, is just plain wrong.

I think you need to re consider your plans.

I can not see how you could consider the US a safe country for her to move to.

Presumably she would be flying to the US, going through a Russian airport, not a good option.
