Hey everyone,

 

I cannot see a more recent thread that discusses IR1 visa experiences and travel through Schengen. Our trip will originate in Serbia, Belgrade and while there was a possibility to take direct flight to NYC - we could not find free seats until October that did not cost arm and a leg.

 

So we (myself on IR1 visa and my husband USC) will be travelling straight to Virginia - IAD with a layover in Germany. All my research says that as US Citizen + spouse and with a copy of marriage cert, we should have no problem making our connection. Am I missing something?

Your research is correct.  You are exempt from the travel restriction.
