US Citizen studying abroad, establishing domicile

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

 

I had my CR-1 interview in August and I was put in administrative processing which still continues (not unexpected, I'm Iranian).

Currently my American husband and I both live abroad because he is studying.  His study abroad ends May 2019 and then we have to move to the US  for him to finish the degree in the US.

We have provided proof of his continued domicile in the US, as well as all sorts of letter from school mentioning the exact period he needs to be abroad and when he needs to return to the US. The officer seemed convinced with all that.

 

My question is: Are they gonna issue my visa once it is ready, or are they gonna wait for my husband to actually return to the US to issue my visa? Or maybe they are gonna wait until closer to his return?

 

Thanks.

 

PS. As you know citizens of Iran are subject to an ongoing travel ban. However, due to my unique circumstances and according to the text of the ban I'm an exception. So please kindly try to answer my question focused on the domicile part. Much thanks.

If approved , the visa will be issued based on the acceptance of his intent to restablish US domicile. He must enter before OR with you.. so he can stay with you and you can travel together if that works. Or he can go ahead if that is needed for his school commitments.. it isn’t needed for your visa.

That is the correct answer to the question you actually asked.  Hopefully, you'll have your visa before he returns to the US.

Thanks for your response Lil bear. Good to know it is not needed for the issuance of the visa since we plan to enter together.
