How do I prove to authorities that I am an immediate relative of a US Resident??

Hello,
So I'm going to book a flight on 31 May to the US through Frankfurt. How do I prove to the guys over at frankfurt airport that my mom is a U.S. Resident if she doesn't come with me? I have an immigrant visa. Do I photocopy her passport and her green card, and get a birth certificate with me? That's what I'm thinking of doing.

I'm asking cause they probably don't have the immigration data that the US authorities have, so they can't know whether my mom is a U.S. Resident.

I’m confused-  why do you need this?

 

also- I don’t believe you can travel to the US via the Schengen area yet.

He can if he is an immediate relative to a USC or a GC holder, which he is

It is according to the type of immigrant visa you have. If you are an immediate relative to a USC/GC holder (spouse visas for example) then yes you can board the plane. You do not have to prove anything, your visa is the proof ;)

My visa type is an F4 visa but my mom and brother went to the US already, which means they are residents. So my visa by itself isn't proof. I changed flights to hopefully transiting through Qatar anyway, so case closed ig.

You are in Lebanon right? When is the flight through Qatar? Is it in June 5th?

Show them your birth certificate and a copy of her passport?

I'm going to do that eitherway, but I'm most probably going to go through Qatar now.

The F4 visa is part of a category of U.S immigrant visas called the Family Preference Visas. These visas allow U.S Lawful Permanent Residents to reunite with their family members. This includes brothers and sisters and if applicable, their spouses and minor unmarried children.Feb 19, 2020

If your visa category is F4 that means you are under the "Brothers and Sisters of Adult US Citizens" pretty sure this category is not exempt from the ban... (Unless you are under 21 & unmarried . What is your age?)

In general terms, is useless to show documents needed for a country in another country  they not necessarily know foreign laws  so i think you won´t need any. Commonly in the airports there is a transit area. You will neither enter into the country nor they will stamp your passport.  they will address you to a hall where you can wait for your next flight. In any case ii think the best advice is to call  Germany´s Embassy to obtain proper information because elsewise they will not allow you even to take the plane to Frankfurt
