You could ask the embassy to reissue the visa but the reasons are not compelling enough so it will very likely be denied.

Better to plan your trip to the US before it expires.

I see thanks! :)

You may request the consulate to re-issue the visa if you are not able to travel before it expires.  If the consulate agrees, you will be instructed to go through the visa medical again and pay the visa fee.

Hi All,

I got my CR1 visa in Nov 2021 and planning move to states with my partner in May 2022. By the time we flight into US we been married over 2 years. I was wondering would I get 2 years green card or 10 years green card? Thanks in advance!

Yes, that's how it works.  If you've been married 2 years or more when you enter, the status you are granted is IR1.  Be careful to enter before the visa expiration date.   You're cutting in close.

Thats great! On my Visa IV category it said CR1, I was confused if I will be getting 2 year condition green card when I enter USA.

Thank you for your information.

Hi, Mainly is due to the severe pandemic situation in US. Hopeful it will get better in May

If you are vaccinated and not immunocompromised, I wouldn't consider the condition severe. If someone were coming on holiday it'd be different, but coming to live, it's fine as long as you take normal precautions.

When does your visa expire?  

 

Also, be sure to mention to CBP that you have been married more than two years.  Sometimes they or USCIS make mistakes.

Yes.  Your visa is CR1.  Your status when you enter will either be conditional LPR or LPR based on how long you have been married on the date of entry to the US.  If it is after your 2yr anniversary, then you will be a normal LPR and will get a 10yr GC.
