Beneficiary Travelling while pending I-130

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I was wondering whether my husband can travel (he has a valid 10yrs visa which he has used multiple times) to visit me even though we have a pending petition?

Has anyone done so and what was the result?

Please help I'm missing my husband and just to see him even if its for a month would be amazing.

thanks

Moved from Progress Reports to Process & Procedures.

Yes he can travel, however, it will be up to CBP whether or not he is ultimately admitted to the US, he should carry proof of ties to his country in case a CBP officer asks to see them

forget about it unless you can afford to loose the travel fees. it's a joke I know.... your best bet is to live in the foriegn country while it being approved... it's a loop hole but cuts the time down in half or less.
