ESTA to CR1 Quick Question.

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have what I hope is a quick question-  my wife has her CR1 approved and is ready to come home.   She had been here for about 85 days on her ESTA having left mid January (about 45 days ago).

I know that for her to have returned on her ESTA it would be a '90 days out' '90 days in' situation, (Germany).   Will there be a problem with her coming back on her CR1 not having been out a complete cycle?

 

I hope this makes sense...my inclination is that no it won't be because the CR1 is an immigrant visa, but I thought I would put it to the minds here.

 

Thank you in advance!  (also I'm not 100% sure this is the right category, mods please feel free to. move this to the right place!)

as long as the CR1 visa is in her passport she will be using that to enter not ESTA, so she can travel anytime before the visa expires.

Yes, the “cycle” as you refer to it is to show there is no immigrant intent, if she’s entering on an immigrant visa like a CR visa then that isn’t an issue anymore.
