My child was born outside USA and i want to file for  Birth Abroad of a Citizen of the United States (CRBA). Is there a way to do that from USA due to COVID19 travel restrictions etc?

If the child is overseas then it is applied for by the parent overseas.

Our daughter got her CRBA and US passport when she was 2 months old (she's 14 months now). I'm still awaiting my IR1/CR1 visa, we got documentarily qualified on August 11 but the local embassy hasn't resumed routine visa services yet so the case will remain at NVC for what seems like a long time. My question is: is there a time limit for how long a child with CRBA can remain outside the US without any consequences? I hope my delay in immigrating to the US to join my husband will not affect her US citizenship and any other documentation.

She is born a citizen, CRBA proves that, nothing will change that. She can remain a citizen without ever going to the US.

May I suggest you contact the embassy as being a parent of a USC child actually qualifies you for a national interest exemption, and we have seen some embassies expediting visas for parents of USCs as a result, even for visa types where they have not resumed routine processing yet. At any rate, it won’t hurt to ask.

Thanks for the response SusieQQQ. I guess i could make an inquiry on that. Like you said, it won't hurt to ask. But i'm glad to know that her citizenship won't be affected.
