What if My K-1 Visa Expires Before the Travel Ban is Lifted?

Transcript of the above video:

As the title of this video suggests, we are discussing the K-1 Fiance Visa. We are specifically discussing this in the context of Visa expiration amidst the COVID-19 travel ban to the United States. 

So, depending on the country one hails from and depending on the circumstances and I think it is pretty safe to say that there is pretty much a broad ban of people getting into the United States. There are exceptions to this but for this region and various regions including China, the United States is not letting folks basically into the country or if they are letting someone of a certain nationality or coming from a certain country in, the logistics of travel may be such that it might be impossible to get in to the United States. 

So, what happens in the event that you are looking at your K-1 Visa for example, expire before the travel ban is lifted? Well contact a legal professional is the first thing because depending on the circumstances it may be possible to remedy this circumstance depending on the facts of your given case. It may be possible for example, to get another Visa issued with a new expiration date. There are various ways in which this may be remedied. There may be folks who unfortunately due to the factual circumstances of their case, it is impossible to remedy and things need to be undertaken in order to get another Visa issued. Again, it is going to be highly circumstantially dependent. 

For those who are watching this video who are very concerned about this, my heart goes out to you. I would urge you to contact a legal professional to try to get some insight as soon as possible into how to rectify a situation such as this.
