  1. Hi Alix, my husband traveled from the US to France on 10 May. All went fine, except that he was denied boarding a flight with a layover in London and had another flight cancelled at the last minute, all related to COVID uncertainties. Context : we are married, he is a US citizen and I live in France full time. My advice : - have all papers ready (marriage certificate, justificatif de domicile in France, copy of your passport) - book a direct flight from the US to France (any layover might result in him being denied boarding) - forced quarantine is not in place - it is only on a voluntary basis and can happen at home The whole travel was really not bad (remember, this was when lockdown was still in place in France !!) Let me know if you have any more question about it !
  2. Hi all! since were are waiting for UCSIS or NVC to work on our cases (we finally sent all financial and civil documents a few days ago !!) or the embassy to reopen, do you know any interesting blogs/websites created by French people who moved to the US after they got married to an American or a PR? I'd love to gather more impressions of how things went for them... until it's our turn Thanks a lot!
  3. Hi ! Some say "motif familial impérieux" can hardly be questioned, but you never know... My husband wants to come to France from the US - he French embassy in the US said he should travel with a marriage certificate, a copy of my ID, my "certificat de domicile" in France as well as the usual form that describes the reason why he is traveling ("motif familial impérieux"). Maybe you should also bring the proof that you have a place to self-isolate at in the US ? Good luck !!
  4. Trump signed his executive order : " (b) The suspension and limitation on entry pursuant to section 1 of this proclamation shall not apply to: ... (iv) any alien who is the spouse of a United States citizen " https://www.whitehouse.gov/presidential-actions/proclamation-suspending-entry-immigrants-present-risk-u-s-labor-market-economic-recovery-following-covid-19-outbreak/
  5. I do hope so! From what I gathered, NVC is still working (we are still missing the affidavit of support). But with embassies closed until further notice, who knows when they'll start scheduling interviews again... 😟 Have you read anything about that?
  6. Hi ! Sorry you got an RFE!! I have sent my document to NVC last week, so I cannot really help... I sent a "copie intégrale de l'acte de mariage", with all the little stars at the end of each line ***** and a blue colored stamp. It is the form the mairie gave me after I requested a "copie de l'acte de mariage", not the one I received on the day we got married (which was slightly different). Is that what you sent? Good luck with getting another one in these times of covid! Hopefully the mairie will still be able to provide you with another one if you need it... 🤞
  7. Hi all! New to the forum but we've been waiting for a while (I-130 sent on 15 October 2018...). I am really not doing well with the quarantine, feeling really lonely and depressed, and we were thinking my husband could come to France. He is not a permanent resident and does not have a visa for France - he is always coming as a tourist. Has anyone done so in the past days/weeks since the lockdown has been declared? After landing in Paris CDG, would he be able to go to Gare de l'Est and board a train to Strasbourg? Would his travel be considered a "motif familial impérieux" or any other reason indicated on the official form issued by the French government? Any advice would be great! Thanks!
