Is this the end of K1 visa in the affected countries. A friend is just putting her application together to file for her Fiancée in Nigeria, Infact the fiancée in Nigeria just saw her parents yesterday and will come with his parents to see her parents who are vacationing in Nigeria currently. So what becomes the right of US citizens who find love in these affected countries and wish their partners immigrate to join them.

- Those who (can) overstay their visas have NOT been banned. 
- However, the category that undergo extreme financial and security scrutiny HAVE BEEN BANNED.

Currently the Travel Ban countries have two options to get a visa approved (1) use a non-designated country passport (2) request a waiver after the interview. Option 1 is the best and easiest so far. Option 2 has seen a range of outcomes. I've heard unconfirmed news several additional countries may be added in the future to the Travel ban.


I learned the hard way, I hope YOU don't have to. Advice: learn, learn, learn.

Today, Trump administration just added countries effective Feb.22nd.

 

"Immigrant visas will be suspended for citizens of four countries — Nigeria, the most populous country in Africa, Myanmar (also known as Burma), Eritrea and Kyrgyzstan — while people from Sudan and Tanzania will be barred from the U.S. diversity visa program, which awards green cards to immigrants. The new restrictions won't apply to tourist, business or other non-immigrant travel, according to Homeland Security Department officials who detailed the new updates on Friday."

When during the process for a K1 will the waiver be used? Some places online says that it’s requested during the interview. Or is it submitted with the petition?

Hi Guys,

Does anyone have a clearer explanation of the travel Ban? How would this affect US Citizens who are trying to bring their parent over from one of the countries affected by the ban?

 

 

Ideas are much appreciated

 

Thanks

I’m sorry, I really don’t know. This isn’t my area of expertise at all, I just had seen this so thought I’d share what I read. Try not to panic, I don’t think this is gonna be as big of nightmare as people are thinking. Probably just have a few more steps to take. 
But like I said, I don’t know much about any of this travel ban stuff, I’d encourage you to do your own research 😁

Visas will no longer be issued to citizens of the barred countries, including immigrant visas, unless a USCIS waiver is obtained or an alternative Primary citizenship can be presented. People exempt are those already in the United States, LPRs, and those with issued visas. 

 

This new rule can be changed or modified rapidly depending on US courts and administrative changes, so keep yourself up to date.

To be more specific, the ban is on immigrant visas which leaves tourist visas still available but one can infer they will become much more restrictive. The ban will take effect on Feb 21. If a visa is issued before then, then someone can still immigrate. After that date they wont be allowed
