Health insurance and visa approval/denial

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My wife is a UK citizen, we married on June 11th in Nevada, I'd like to bring her over to live with me in the U.S.

My main question is will she need health insurance before being issued her visa because according to this site, if she doesn't have health insurance she could be denied her CR1 or K-3 visa http://www.emigrationexpert.co.uk/healthcare-us.html

Will she need health insurance? And if so, whereabouts in the immigration process do we do this?

She dos not need health insurance before she moves.

There have been a few rare cases where the beneficiary (the foreigner) has a serious medical issue, and the consul at interview asked for proof that there would be health insurance- either through an employer or private- when the person moved over, but never before.
