The State Department will not issue temporary visas to foreigners who come to obtain U.S. citizenship as an unborn child.
U.S. authorities are introducing new visa rules for pregnant women from January 24. This is stated in the official notification of the State Department, posted in the electronic database of the Federal Register. that it is born in the United States, “is an unacceptable basis for issuing a non-immigrant visa of the type “B”.”
Now, if a consulate employee suspects that the applicant will give birth to a child during his stay in the United States, it will be considered that the main purpose of applying for a visa is to obtain American citizenship by his future child.
To refute these suspicions, the visa applicant will have to make a strong case that he is pursuing other purposes.
Exceptions may be made for those who can prove that the United States is their most appropriate place to have a child because of the need for certain medical care due to complications during the pregnancy.
Recall, on January 23, the White House published new rules for obtaining visas aimed at deterring “maternity tourism.”
