5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So I fell in love with an Egyptian man and we are getting married in Cairo soon. I'm an American citizen and I have no idea about what's the best way to bring my husband to the states. Any help? or can you point me in the right direction?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
