What to do if you have 2 years visa pre pregnancy and you now intend to give birth in us

Check the Contact Us page of the US Embassy of your country to see their email address.

Write a letter to the embassy indicating your new intention to seek medical treatment or give birth in the USA.

A sample of the NOTICE OF CHANGE OF INTENTION is below.

The embassy will typically respond within 7 to 10 working days, stating the need to have sufficient funds and the need to have a confirmation document from the caregiver in the US which is to be presented at the entry point to immigration officers in other to avoid being refused entry to the US.

Make sure you print out the correspondence and response from the Embassy and have it handy at the point of entry. In rare cases, the US Embassy may request a physical interview and may include a comment on the VISA so that it covers medical treatment.

    Hi I have valid ESTA as I am a VWP (visa waiver program) national. Do I need to still apply for a B-2? Whenever I land I always recieved a B1/2 stamp.
