  1. I had thought about that and there are too many variables for there to be a clear cut answer, from an underwriting perspective my concern would be that the major aspect of proving medical cover assumes anything of consequence you would be looking at repatriation asap, and in the current circumstances that would be more challenging. So you could be stuck paying for somebody in a US Hospital rather than a ride home and that would be the end of it. More a rating factor. There is also the issue with older Insureds where you might not want to underwrite long term stays.
  2. Need GC for 5 years before you can buy into Medicare. I have very limited knowledge of Russian Insurance norms, I would expect that once you are no longer travelling it would cease.
  3. Seems what they are doing is that the flights are to individual regions so if you come from Moscow area you need to be on that flight.
  4. K is effectively an Immigrant Visa.
  5. https://www.cnn.com/2020/04/09/politics/joe-biden-vp-vice-president-pick/index.html 10. Michelle Lujan Grisham: The New Mexico governor isn't well-known nationally -- despite serving three terms in the House before being elected to her current job in 2018. She's on the list because she's one of the highest-ranking Latina elected officials in the country -- and she represents an area of the country (the Southwest) that is growing like crazy. (Previous ranking: 10) Stacey Abrams 9. Stacey Abrams: If political Twitter picked the VP nominee, Abrams, who nearly won the Georgia governorship in 2018, would be the overwhelming No. 1 choice. Her 2018 race made her a star and her work on voting rights issues since then has kept her in the national spotlight. The biggest problem for Abrams? Experience. The highest office she has ever held is the state House. And Biden has repeatedly said that experience matters a huge amount to him; "You've got to be able to turn and say to your vice president, 'This is your responsibility.' Because the job is too big anymore for any one man or woman," said the former VP last August. (Previous ranking: 7) Florida Rep. Val Demings 8. Val Demings: The Florida House member barely missed my original Top 10 but the more I thought about her, the more I thought Demings deserved a spot on the list. Here's why: Prior to coming to Congress, Demings was the first female police chief in Orlando, Florida. In her relatively brief time in the House -- she was first elected to the 10th District in 2016 -- she has rapidly become a rising star. Demings was one of seven House Democrats chosen by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) to serve as managers during the Senate impeachment trial of Trump. (Previous ranking: Unranked) Wisconsin Sen. Tammy Baldwin 7. Tammy Baldwin: If you believe that Wisconsin is the Midwestern state that Trump must win in order to claim a second term, well then picking a popular senator from the state makes a lot of sense for Biden. (Baldwin won reelection with 55% in 2018.) Plus, Baldwin would be a historic pick: The first gay vice presidential nominee for either major party. (Previous ranking: 😎 Illinois Sen. Tammy Duckworth 6. Tammy Duckworth: Duckworth is my dark horse candidate to make Biden's eventual final three. Why? She's from the Midwest (Illinois). She would be an historic pick as the first Asian American to appear on a national ticket for a major party. And her personal story -- the Blackhawk helicopter she was piloting during the Iraq war was hit by a rocket-propelled grenade and Duckworth lost both legs and the full use of her right arm in the incident -- is incredible. (Previous ranking: 6) Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren 5. Elizabeth Warren: The Massachusetts senator drops two spots this week because she doesn't fit two of Biden's stated criteria for his second-in-command. One, at 70, Warren is younger than Biden but not exactly of a different generation. Second, Biden said in New Hampshire last month that he wanted a VP with "some correlation between their views and mine," specifically mentioning support for "Medicare for All" as a non-starter. While Warren waffled somewhat in her support for Medicare for All, she was definitely a vocal supporter of a government-run program for much of her presidential bid. (Previous ranking: 3) Nevada Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto 4. Catherine Cortez Masto: The Nevada senator isn't getting nearly as much buzz as some of the three people ranked above her on this list, but that may wind up being a good thing since early buzz isn't always an indicator of future success. (Remember vice presidential nominee Julián Castro in 2016?) And Cortez Masto has a very powerful advocate in former Senate Majority Leader (and Biden longtime colleague) Harry Reid. According to Mediaite, Reid recently told Biden that Cortez Masto is his pick for VP and Biden responded that she was in his top three. (Previous ranking: 5) Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar 3. Amy Klobuchar: Klobuchar has been in the news a lot of late -- for reasons she'd rather not be: Her husband was diagnosed with coronavirus. Thankfully he returned home from the hospital late last month and the Minnesota senator has spoken about her husband's battle the virus. Depending on how dominant coronavirus is an issue in November, that sort of personal experience might matter to voters (and hence to Biden). Klobuchar also still has her Midwestern roots, record of winning easily in a swing-ish state and centrist politics working in her favor. (Previous ranking: 2) Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer 2. Gretchen Whitmer: It was lost on absolutely no one that the Michigan governor was one of the first guests on Biden's new podcast -- and that on it he praised her as an "outstanding governor" and "one of the most talented people in the country in my view." Whitmer's pragmatic politics are a nice fit with Biden's and her age -- she's 48 -- would make a clear generational bridge for Biden. Plus, Whitmer's profile has soared of late as she battles coronavirus in her state, and attacks from Trump on the job she is doing. (Previous ranking: 4) California Sen. Kamala Harris 1. Kamala Harris: At a virtual fundraiser Wednesday, Biden praised the California senator for running a "helluva race" for president and adding: "I'm so lucky to have you be a part of this partnership going forward. Working together, we can make a great deal of progress. ... I'm coming for you, kid." Eyebrows raised! Harris checks all the boxes for Biden -- an African American and Indian American woman from a huge Democratic (and donor) state who proved herself to be an able debater during her own run for president. (Previous ranking: 1) Kamala No 1, really?
  6. I would ask the Lawyer handling the case, I have seen people be able to obtain TN visa's recently and that surprised me as I thought they would not be in the permitted category. As has been mentioned a Canada situation only as others would not be able to interview. Sent to USCIS for further adjudication is new to me, have not come across that before.
  7. EAD would be June/July under normal circumstances.
  8. Under normal situations the process can take a year or so, current is not normal so anything would be a guess. Obviously Consulates need to reopen for interviews first.
