Does USC have to accompany Beneficiary to States?

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

Wanted to ask a question to sort of plan ahead. I am a USC living in Spain with my Spanish husband. Our i-130 has been approved and we are moving onto the NVC level of the process. Later my husband will have his interview at the Madrid Consulate and hopefully will be approved and be able to move to the States.

Over 6 months ago we purchased airline tickets to go visit my family for a month in the summer. This is before we decided to start with the i-130 process. Turns out we cannot cancel/change/postpone the tickets but it doesn't look like we will be out of NVC and finished with the interview before the flight date. Since they were so pricey we were thinking that I would take the original flight and after my husband is approved, he would buy a ticket and come over on his own, with me waiting at the airport anxiously of course. Is that possible? Entering with a CR1 visa, can he enter alone or does the USC need to accompany him at the POE? Or when I arrive to the airport, do I need to inform Customs or someone that I have arrived to pick him up?

Thank you in advance,

No the USC does not need to go with the immigrant. They can fly alone.

No, of course not. Your spouse is not a child.

“The minute I heard my first love story I started looking for you, not knowing how blind that was.
Lovers don't finally meet somewhere.
They're in each other all along.”

Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !
