Hi everyone,

 

I have applied for a k1 visa for my fiance in Pakistan. Unfortunately, my fiance has developed a "cyst" on his face which is getting bigger as time passes. I am scared it can become inflamed or infected, with the overlying skin that is becoming red, tender, and sore. He has had this for over 6 months but is getting really worse now. The typical treatment for any cyst is removal by surgery and a routine test for cancer. All unusual lumps need to be investigated by a qualified health professional.  Some cysts are cancerous and early treatment is vital. If left untreated, cysts can cause serious complications including infection, the cyst fills with bacteria and pus, and becomes an abscess. If the abscess bursts inside the body, there is a risk of blood poisoning (septicaemia).

The only treatment for this would be a surgical removal. My fiance is 27 years old and has never used Pakistan's medical services. Being a US citizen, I do not trust Pakistan's medical care especially for serious treatments like surgery. We both would rather have this treatment done in America. As for right now, our case is in Administrative processing and has been in AP ever since the interview in August 2018. I am thinking to pay a visit to the Islamabad embassy and show them my fiance needs to seek medical treatment in America and request them to issue the visa as this is a medical emergency. Please advise on what you think

 

Thank you,

Zoya

He's in AP there is nothing you can do until AP is over.  They cannot even give him a visitor visa while he is in AP. 

 

They will also not even consider that a medical emergency because if you weren't in the picture he would see a doctor in his country. You said he's waited already 6 months, makes it kind of hard to say it's an emergency when he's waited that long.

You can ask but the answer is likely to be “no”. Are there any western-managed hospitals there? I lived in China for a year and we would go to the American hospital there. It was more costly but worth it, in our opinion. The US embassy webpage usually lists hospitals with internationally trained employees (Europeans, Americans, Australians, etc).

You can not expedite AP.

 

Medical treatment well there is a B2 Medical, he would need to show a medical reason for needing treatment in the US, documentation from his Specialist and of course the US facility that would be carrying out the operation and of course that he can pay for it.

I think this can be considered a medical emergency and if you and your fiancé can show this information they may grant you the visa because you don’t feel safe to get treated in Pakistan

If I weren’t in the picture, he would applied for a visit visa to seek medical care in America. As I’ve stated he has never used Pakistan’s medial services, no treatments or surguries ever done in Pakistan. Yes he has waited 6 months but like I stated it is now getting worse and getting bigger. It is causing a lot of discomfort.

Yes we can show all of this . This needs urgent medical care and we both would like to get it treated in America where we both are guaranteed the proper care and treatment

While you're trying to expedite his AP, please work on a plan B to get treatment in another country with high quality medical care. Do not delay treatment by limiting your options to American hospitals - urgent is urgent...

AP which is security checks cannot be expedited. Even if it were imagine how you would pay for a $30,000 plus surgery. With it being on his face there would be a plastic surgeon involved and they are not cheap. 

For his safety he should seek medical care and not expect to wait until he gets to the US.

On what do you base this opinion?  Everyone is saying no.  You are the only one saying it would be considered.  Why?  Based on what experience?  Or is this just a wild guess on your part?

... It appears that the beneficiary didn't see a doctor yet, so it would be impossible to support OP's claims. 

 

Without proper diagnosis, who knows how urgent it really is...

On the plus side if he can afford treatment in the US he also can afford it anywhere else.

It doesn't matter if the beneficiary has seen a doctor or not.  The rule is clear - a medical emergency to the beneficiary is not a reason to expedite a case.  A medical emergency to the petitioner could be a reason for an expedite.

There's no expedite for AP... No medical emergency for sure... So as we said, best to seek treatment elsewhere.
