  1. Who has recently tried to visit the US successfully or unsuccessfully? Which visa are you petitioning for? Date that you flew in or was denied? Country you flew in or was denied from? Airline and airport used to fly in or got denied at?
  2. I've been reading articles and cant seem to find any solid information on flights into the US from Canada. I thought they were restricted because of the border being closed but the more research I do it seems only land crossing is affected. Is anyone able to confirm that flights will be denied if my fiance wants to come visit for a week? If so can anyone recommend a site to keep an eye on for when flights become available again? Here's the most in depth information I've been able to find and it seems like travel into the US from Canada is allowed. https://www.aircanada.com/us/en/aco/home/book/travel-news-and-updates/2020/new-entry-requirements.html?fbclid=IwAR1kumh6f65y22BI8XtTE0G78uXUMYaVrU5jxQdglJVfmYVwzX4po1VuYAI#/usa-7
  3. Would I want to let the landlord know at least that she will be coming eventually or just let them know when she gets here? What are the chances they would deny her because shes an immigrant? Is there a specific type of apartment I should be looking for?
  4. I'm planning on moving into an apartment and I have a pending K1 petition awaiting my NOA2. Would I want to add my foreign fiance to my lease or just get the lease in my name 100% and then add my fiance when she finally gets here? I wouldn't want her to come here and then get denied and not have anywhere to stay but I also don't know if its even possible to get her on the lease or accepted before she even gets here. Any advice would be appreciated. =]
  5. They actually said they will review non-immigrant visas in 30 days, which is not exactly hypothetical. I'd really like to be with my loved ones during all of this. Also coming here to stay on a visa is less exposure then having to visit every couple months because there's an immigration pause.
  6. Even though the EO doesnt appear to include Non-Immigrant and family visas currently, they said in 30 days they would include restrictions to non-immigrant visas. Petitions slowed down rapidly after the EO came out and its important that we keep fighting this. It would be much easier to keep non-immigrant/family visas safe from a ban if we take action before it even happens because convincing them to change things after the fact could be much harder and cause unnecessary delays. https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/change-immigration-suspension-executive-order-add-exception-immediate-family-members-us-citizens-0
  7. It says in the VJ guide to send your I-129f petition to the Dallas lockbox. Where does the California service center come into play exactly? Just curious because i sent mine to the Dallas one and I'm wondering if I sent it to the wrong spot.
  8. President Donald Trump said Monday that he is temporarily suspending immigration to the United States in response to the coronavirus pandemic and the "need to protect jobs." In a tweet Monday night (April 20th), the president attributed the suspension to an "attack from the Invisible Enemy" and the "need to protect the jobs of our GREAT American Citizens." Highlights (updated as of 4/21 28am PT, 2020) President Donald Trump said he will sign an executive order temporarily suspending immigration into the United States. It could come as early as Tuesday. The order will include exemptions for migrant farmworkers and immigrant healthcare workers, particularly those treating coronavirus patients, The Wall Street Journal reported. Immigration into the US has already ground to a near-halt due to the coronavirus pandemic, and it's unclear what immediate effects Trump's order would have. Anybody have any other news or opinions on this? Do you think it would have an effect on K1 fiance or spouse visas? https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/donald-trump/trump-says-he-suspending-immigration-over-coronavirus-need-protect-jobs-n1188416 https://www.foxnews.com/politics/trump-suspend-immigration-executive-order-coronavirus https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-52363852 https://www.businessinsider.com/trump-immigration-order-to-include-farm-healthcare-exceptions-2020-4
  9. Hey! My fiance is in Canada and we're in the petition stage of a K1 visa. She works at a pharmacy/grocery store right by the hospital and it's a pretty risky environment. We're wondering if she goes on unemployment for a while would she be considered a potential public charge when the interview process comes?
  10. I'm curious if there's a time limit on getting the interview after your petition gets approved. There is no way for us to get interviews or flights to the US but they're still processing petitions/applications it seems.
  11. Definitely! According to what I've seen so far it seems the embassies aren't doing interviews right now and also the borders are shut off to most countries. I would love to continue with the process.
  12. I hope they aren't processing anything until things open back up. If ours got approved then we wouldn't be able to do the medical or go in for an interview or even go across the border right now.
  13. We just sent in our petition for a k1 fiance visa about a month ago and are waiting on an approval or our first RFE. I'm wondering if they're holding off on processing till everything clears up because if we get approved we won't even be able to get the medical or do an interview. Also she works at a high risk area and we're concerned that if she catches it and actually survives then would the US even let her in to visit me when the border opens up again? Or even worse would that prevent her from being able to immigrate here?
  14. That's a relief to know! =] I'll just put Temporary Seasonal Unemployment and when I return to work. I tried looking into some temporary work but nothing payed more then I'm already getting on unemployment insurance. I'm just taking this time to work on a business I'm starting up.
  15. I'm using my grandmother as a co-sponsor. I'm just trying to figure out what I need to put on the i129-f. I dont want to just put unemployed because I'm actually still employed just in a seasonal layoff and don't want the officer to get the wrong idea and deny us.
