  1. My fiance just received the 2 doses of the pfizer vaccine in Zagreb Coatia, they are allowing tourist to be vaccinated there. Going home tomorrow to Russia as I have a 3 year multi entry visa to Russia. Very smooth and process and many Russians going there! FYI

  2. Can anyone please tell me where one can get the J&J vaccination in Mexico, preferable close to the Tijuana airport?
  3. I would love to see this confirmed, as we are in the same boat. I've been searching everywhere and can't find a definitive answer.
  4. Thank you very much. As soon as she gets her new passport (any day now) we will be implementing this plan. I will be picking her up at the border crossing and we will drive back to Portland. Is there anything other than her passport with the visa, her new passport, and the packet they gave her after the interview that she may need to show at the border crossing? I'm anxious, as it has been such a long process with a few deadlines we barely made.
  5. My petition to bring my Russian fiancee to the US was approved and her k1 visa expires on Dec 23rd. The embassy in Moscow placed her visa on the last page of her passport, and as a result she had to get a new passport before she could actually travel. We are expecting her new passport to arrive any day, and she is ready to come as soon as it arrives. Since there are no approved vaccines available in Russia, she cannot fly into the US. Our plan is that she will fly to Frankfurt, as she has a valid US visa, I don't think she needs a visa to transit through Frankfurt. Is this correct? From Frankfurt, she will fly to Mexico City and then to Tijuana. My understanding is that she won't need a visa to enter Mexico as she has the valid US visa. Can anyone tell me if this is correct? She will then enter the US at the Tijuana/San Diego point of entry, where I will meet her and then we will drive home to Oregon. Can anyone tell me if this is a workable scenario? What can she expect at the border crossing? She has her packet from the interview which I assume contains her medical test results. Is there anything else that she should bring, besides the passport with the K1 visa and the new passport? Would it be a good idea for me to meet her in Tijuana and enter the US with her, or should I just wait? This has been a long journey with many ups and downs, and now that the end is in sight, I don't want to risk anything going wrong and having to start it all over.
  6. Thank you so much! With only a month and a half before her visa expires, things were looking rather bleak, but thanks to you, I think I see a ray of sunshine breaking through the clouds.
  7. Might be doable, providing I can find a flight from St Petersburg to Mexico that doesn't transit through the US.
  8. Would this apply to the K-1 visa as well, or just immigrant visas?
  9. No, it didn't provide any solace, and I still think the CDC is trying to simultaneously count and not count the Russian vaccines, but I appreciate the even-handed reply.
  10. Probably it is another backhanded poke at the bear.
  11. I especially like how they spun it as something positive, as in "Lifting the Travel Ban". They lifted nothing, they simply shifted the burden onto someone else.
  12. From the CDC website: Categories of noncitizen nonimmigrants that meet the criteria for an exception under the Proclamation and CDC’s Order include: Persons with valid visas [excluding B-1 (business) or B-2 (tourism) visas] who are citizens of a foreign country with limited COVID-19 vaccine availability So, how is it that Russia has not made the list of limited availability despite having NO approved vaccines? It can't be because they have over 10% of Russians vaccinated, because I don't believe that 10% of Russians traveled to get an approved vaccine. In my opinion Fauci is cooking the books.
  13. Probably this is less than helpful, but if the Moscow embassy reopens you might be able to have the visa re-issued. You would have to pay the mrv fee and redo the medical though.
