  1. Hi everyone. I will visit my Husband by end of this month to finally see him after 7 Months! I find out that spouses and children can travel during the ban. I have a B1/B2 Visa but my daughter only have a ESTA. Can she travel with the ESTA to the US as a child from a US-citizen?
  2. Does anyone have any idea if entry into the U.S. will be allowed on a K1 Visa? The travel ban states that only U.S. permanent residents or immediate family members will be allowed in, and I know a fiance on K1 is technically not an immediate relative yet. However, I have heard a couple cases on WeChat of Chinese fiances being let in at the airport with their K1 Visa in the last few days. We are living in Guangdong together right now, and want to get the hell out, but we don't want to spend all that money, travel all that way, and then have her be denied at the border and sent back to China. Anyone have any insights to share? It would be greatly appreciated.
  3. Does Trump's new order to hold immigration for the next 60 days apply to spouses? If my spouse is waiting for an interview date overseas, will it be held for the next 60 days? Or if his country opens the lockdown and starts interviews, will he be able to immigrate within the 60 days that this is issued? I am confused on this new executive order.
  4. Hi my father was deported to the philippines back in 2006. I was wondering what steps can we take to bring him back to the US. I am a US Citezen.
  5. I'm a US citizen, my wife is a lebanese citizen. We were living in Lebanon (where we were married) and attempted to move back to the US December 2019. We had not filed for the spouse visa since we were only planning on staying in the U.S. for 6 months. My wife was denied entry and returned back to Lebanon. Reasons for denial: she planned on working remotely while in the U.S. She was a freelance editor/translator for a project based in lebanon funded by an American missionary. She did not lie to the officer about anything, and we didn't know at the time this was illegal for her to do. The citation however was not based on the illegality of working, it was based on the fact she didn't "qualify as a tourist" or something like that. She was given a 5 year ban. Many answers on her transcript of questions from the CBP officer were fabricated and had additional information added to make it seem like her intent was to stay indefinitely with me, and that she wanted to work for a US company and even to visit the US company she worked for (she didn't work for a US company, and never said she wanted to visit the company). Her signature was taken at the airport to prove "she gave her statement" and then was applied to the whole transcript affirming that she "has read all answers and confirm that the above information is true and correct". She didn't sign the papers; in fact she was only allowed access to the papers after she left the country. I reached out to multiple lawyers, and met with one in person. One lawyer said the real reason was she intended to work in the US. 3 others said that the real reason wasn't the work, but the fear of her attempting to stay in the U.S. According to the lawyer I met with, the citation given stated she was found to be "indamissable" because she didn't have the right visa upon entry; she needed a different one. All lawyers said best practice is to wait 5 years until the ban is up before reapplying for entry. there are other things however that are confusing us. Here's where my confusion lies: 1. The supervisory CBP officer assigned to her case told her in the airport that she can apply anytime for a Spouse visa to come back. Yet, 2. The judgement says she is prohibited to enter, attempt to enter, or being in the US for 5 years. 2. The lawyers said best practice is to wait 5 years to reapply, 3. The papers with her judgement on it indicate that she must reapply for permission to reapply before the 5 year period is over, and that this must be done "before commencing travel to the US". If it's supposed to be done within the 5 year period AND before commencing travel to the US, how can the 5 year ban be applied? It seems like we are banned for 5 years and also told to apply for permission to reapply and travel back to the US before the 5 year period. So we have the lawyers saying to apply after 5 years, the paper saying apply for permission to reapply before 5 years, and the CBP officer saying she can apply right now for the spouse visa. We. Are. Confused. Can anyone speak into this situation?
