Hi all, I wanted to know what your thoughts are on me applying for an expedite for my k1 visa due to my damaged lungs. I was born with cerebral palsy and my fiancée won’t let me visit on a plane because of it. I was thinking about requesting an expedite because I am higher risk during the pandemic and I wanted to know what your thoughts on if I would be successful or not?

Have you looked at the guidelines for an expedite request to determine what you fall under? Anyone can apply it doesn't mean you meet the requirement. Being that CP is a lifelong condition (not an immediate life threatening condition) it is questionable how you meet the expedite guidelines. Obesity is a high risk condition for COVID and over 70 million adults in the US fall into this category and I'm going to go out on a limb and assume many petitioners going through immigration process are as well.. doesn't mean its a reason for a fiancé to expedite to the US. Like I said; you are free to send the request.

Montreal approving expedite requests is exceedingly rare, however it does not affect your case if you try and are denied.
