Hi guys, I filled for CR1 visa to bring over my husband who is a HIV foreigner.

we are at the NVC stage. Do we need to to apply for a waiver!

whats a waiver(if someone could just help me understand)?

will it affect our case?

i was planning to add him on my health care once here but with the new proclamation looks like he should come covers?! What do you all think?

The new proclamation says he and you should have a plan to get him health insurance within 30 days of him coming over OR have enough money that healthcare is not an issue for you. There is not more specific guidance so I guess  (and anybody’s guess) is that one thing you can do is to contact your insurance and get them to write a letter that list your coverage and that you are eligible to add your husband and you contacted them and they’re ready to do so when he comes over. That’s all I can think of.

What do you all think?

What I think is this thing gonna get so many lawsuits coming at it that a federal judge is gonna throw an injunction on it and it’ll be tied up in courts for years, probably until Mr. Trump finishes his term as President...
