Need help about CR1 visa expiry

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi!

 

My husband was issued a CR1 visa and it will be expired on February but he still need to stay here until next year due to some family and work issues. What will happen if visa expires and you haven't went to the US? Can we ask for extension?

 

 

Thank you!

When a visa expires, you will have to apply for a new one. That means going through the entire process again.

Yes, but officially he will have to fulfill his residency requirements, or he loses is green card status.

I can see travelling for family issues, but work? He will be moving to the USA and needs to be thinking of his future not worried about work there.  I assume you were living together in PI due to the location of this thread.  

Unless you want to start over, he has 6 months from the medical to activate the visa.  Then he must spend more time in the USA than out of it.  Remember as a CR1 you will need to remove conditions so that requires more evidence of a marital relationship showing co-mingling of finances and living together.

He needs to make a quick trip to the US, or be prepared to start all over again.
