How can I bring my husband to Argentina in September?

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My husband has been in the US during the whole covid situation and we were thinking that the borders were going to open in September, I've been reading and apparently it is not a sure thing. I know Argentinians can enter the US because they don't have restrictions, but to enter Argentina you need to be a citizen or have permanent or temporary residency in Argentina. How can I prove his temporary residency here and what would be the process to follow so he can enter Argentina to be together?

 

Sounds like a terrible idea, but, is it a good idea to go visit him to the US on a B1 until I have my interview here for the CR-1 and then go back to the US on the CR-1? (I'm just waiting for the interview date, I was DQd on July)

Yes

Then you can travel to the US as long as you don’t go through a banned country. It is up to the CO to grant you entry to the US but there is no restriction on b1s vistiting.

My USC husband got his residency while living in Argentina in 2018, in person, so I don't know if it can be done from the US. 

But on the "migraciones" website I found that they've began processing residency cases online: http://www.migraciones.gov.ar/radex/index.html

But again, don't know if it'll apply if he's in the US.

 

I know you'll be traveling alone, but as a positive anecdote: I traveled (not alone, I went along with my US citizen husband) to the US with a B1/B2 tourist visa in September of 2019 and I had no problems whatsoever. I was scared they'll turn me away so I brought along with me a lot of evidence of my ties to Argentina (pay stubs from my job, a copy of my apartment lease, etc). But nothing was requested. We entered through JFK airport.

Thanks for the info, I checked and he needs to be here to start the residency process :( 

And I'm super scared to go to the US with the B1 visa, and tbh I don't know if it's worth it being so close to finishing the whole thing. I wish they would hurry up with the interviews haha

I understand that fear very well :(

 

You're so close to getting an interview though, I would wait if I were you! 

So you're not rushing back in case you do get an interview soon, and also don't end up stranded over there and can't make it back in time, etc!

 

I'm hopeful we'll have an interview in September or October.

 

(But I understand the pain of being apart in the middle of a pandemic. It happened/is happening to us as well.)

Hi!!! We traveled last year waiting our IR1/IR2. I entered the USA with ESTA (my European passport) and the kids entered with their argentinian passports and the B2 visas. I brought copies of our NOA2 just in case but we were only asked at the border how long were we staying and how much money we carried. 
I entered the US in july, left in August, had my interview in September and finally moved in late September. 
Be prepared to always explain the situation.
