I-30 for pregnant wife and timeline

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: Timeline

Hi guys, Heres my case

I am a US born citizen applying for my wife out of Egypt.

I moved to Egypt last year on October 12th 2011. I've been here ever since. I got married June 21, 2012. I have the Marriage certified copy, I have proof we live and rent an apartment together, I have proof my wife is 2 months pregnant. I will send all those documents along with the copy of passport and birth certificate. My question is, How long does it take to basically say okay we are ready to leave to the states and if I lived here in Egypt more then 6 months becoming a resident, does the speed up the process. Is there any way I can speed up the process or get her some other kind of visa while were waiting for the I-30. I don't want her to have the kid here. I rather back home in the states. Please provide any useful info, be very much appreciated. Thank you.

I'm living abroad with my wife (she's US citizen), and we started the whole process on July 18th. We have an interview on November 30th. So we're planing to go to the states on December 11th or so. This will take 5 months total. It could've been 4 months, we had problems with our Affidavit of Support, we missed some information on her form. This little problem added about 14 days on our process plus we missed earlier interview dates.

I would say you can finish the process in 4 months if everything runs smoothly and the consulate has an interview date right away.

Can you spare some help with it, The embassy here is closed due to problems in Egypt. Thanks

No there 's not another visa for you besides the IR1/CR1. Her pregnancy is not a reason for a expedite so it will be a wait. Depending on your service center it cab be at best 5 months worst 9 months than about 1 to 2 months at NVC. The possibility to have yours all done within the next 7 months is hopefully optimistic but not impossible you just have to make sure you have everything ready when its needed. I would suggest read the guides while you wait after you file so you can be ready at the NVC stage. Good luck.

dwheels is correct. I suggest you start looking at options to have the child there (potentially). I had our daughter (I'm a USC)in Ecuador in order to be with my husband throughout the process. There are decent doctors everywhere...you just have to look hard and be prepared to pay...Good luck to you!!!

Also many airlines will not let an extremely pregant woman fly. It varies a little by airline and length of flight but I think you need to check in advance.


This will not be over quickly. You will not enjoy this.

Your wife shouldn't be flying in her final month. Some airlines say only a week before the due date, but often it's a month because most doctors agree that there should be no flying after 36 weeks. That is if she is having a normal, healthy, care free pregnancy. Having a problem like pre-eclampsia or gestational diabetes would change that. So I would get moving on the paperwork and making sure all your ducks are in a row. Beyond that, find the best doctor you can if you indeed cannot make it back to the USA in time and be prepared to file for a birth abroad.
