    Can a French citizen who has proof of covid 19 test done That is negative visit the States in the upcoming weeks? He already has his visa from February that is good for 2 years.

    what is the position on the #LoveIsNotTourism campaign

  5. Sara & Ben says:

    Why can’t the K-1 visas be done over video?

    When will the embassy be reopened with proper safety accommodations so we can get married?

    Why can’t fiancés be classified as spouses so they can travel here JUST LIKE SPOUSES (who still pose a threat) are doing currently?

    When the medical documents for the K-1 expire, will we have to pay for another visit even though it’s obviously not our fault?

    Why is there such mixed language when it comes to the proclamation and who it pertains to? K-1 visas do not affect labor! Please clarify this!

    Dear Sir/Madame.

    My name is Migena Hana and I am DV2020 winner.
    I have already an issued visa before 23 April that is ixpired nowvisa . I have already issued a visa before 23 of April 2020. But it is expired now and we could not flight because of COVID-19 restrictions border.
    Some embassies and USA gov websites notice regarding visa re-issuance process this type of expired visa.

    But we can not find any information about visa re-issuance from albanian embassy website or any social network because they are closed.
    They send us alwyas the same response that will resume the proces when they will be open.
    What if the time of DV2020 on 30 September finishes and we will not have a re-issuance visa?
    Will the albanian embassy for visa operations in this case will be open?
    What should we have to do?

    I would like to thank you in advance and please I am waiting for your instructions as soon as possible.

    Yours faithfully.

    I think that one very important topic that the US has not addressed is allowing binational couples not exempt from travel restrictions. Regardless of Marital status, couples should be allowed to be together no Matter what, no matter the circumstances. Why has the US not spoken about this issue? Shouldn’t this be a right that you cannot deny? You want to take care of the American people, “Americans first” but with that means taking Care of their lives and our partners are apart of our lives, there is a huge portion of Americans who feel like America is not putting their needs first. And it is disgraceful that the DHS granted exemptions to pro athletes. What a slap in our faces.

    Why are we not pulling our industry out of China? Because we definitely should be.

  11. I want to know when the Embassy in Ghana will open. My husband interview date has been cancelled twice. First was April 30th and then 27th August.

    Hello! I am a participant in the DV-2020 Diversity Lottery. Because of the pandemic in the world of Covid-19 and the proclamation of President Trump, a ban on the issuance of migration visas has been established. We understand that this is an exceptional circumstance, force majeure, but will it also apply to lottery participants? It would be fair and reasonable, for these reasons, to increase the period for consideration of documents and the terms for issuing visas, for all applicants of the Diversity Lottery., by the total terms of prohibitions on proclamations by President Trump. After all, the fact that consulates do not work, state institutions do not work in full, and a ban is established is not our fault. We have legally entered the migration process and we hope that all circumstances will be taken into account and that our situation will be treated deliberately, reasonably and fairly.
    What can you tell about this?

  13. Werner, L. says:

    Love is not tourism! Something you might have come across in the past days. Love is essential for the world. For politicians, for you, for me for anybody. Some of us are sitting home missing their significant other for over 140 days. This uncertainty is nerve-wrecking and leaves us desperate, not knowing when we will see our fiancés, our baby daddy’s and boyfriends again!
    Our love is not worth less just because we don’t have a marriage certificate. We have just the same right to be with our beloved ones. At this point we’re appealing to your common sense. Please, from the bottom of our hearts, please help us see our loves again. Help us lift the travel ban!!!!

  14. Jacob Angelo says:

    Why are the embassies not processing K1 visas when fiancés are classed as immediate relatives on the DS160 form?

    • Brittany says:

      I would like to know the same thing. Especially for those of us who have applied for fiance visas and have longstanding in-person relationships. My fiance and I have been together for 5 years, and spent the first 4 together in person. He is family to me. :(

    I am an Egyptian citizen who applied for a B1-B2 visa from Cairo, Egypt.
    My appointment in Cairo consulate is August 16th at 09:00 AM 2020.
    Is my appointment is suspended?
    If yes, what to reschedule my appointment?

  16. Kelly and Patrick says:

    Have K1 visa applicants, who have been engrossed in this tedious, heart-wrenching, time consuming, expensive visa process, slipped through the cracks for exemption from presidential travel bans and mission critical/essential visa processing?

    Can we please make K1 visa processing a top priority- especially for fiancés coming from places with extraordinarily lower Covid 19 related cases and deaths compared to the United States?

    Spouses of U.S. citizens are exempt from the suspension of visa processing. Considering the purpose of the K1 visa- to make our fiancés our spouses, isn’t it only fair to resume K1 visa processing?

    On our K1 visa applications, we must identify our fiancé as immediate family, yet our fiancé is not awarded the same respect in regards to the suspension of visa processing. Can we afford our K1 visa applicant fiancés the same exemptions as spouses and children of U.S. citizens?

  17. Martha says:

    1. Does the K1 visa affected by Trumps proclamation?

    2. Which type of visa will be priority once consulate open ?
