I came crying yesterday i couldnt get PTA. i had just 1k with me. I called travel agent to change my flight till Thursday hoping to get PTA. I couldnt risk it at POE. at 6pm, my brother who was expecting called if i had checked in. I said i was sorry i had delayed the flight. He was furious and ask me to leave the house immediately. Flight was 9.30. see race. we drove like Shumacher to the airport. Thank God i was quickly attended to cos of my belle. But my heart was still racing... Just 1k to show at the POE.

I can recall @omodadi telling me i will find favour just like @leakytribe yesterday. Lo and behold, POE went thus:

IO: why are you here
Me: On vacation and have my baby
IO: Just tell me you are here to have your baby. Dont lie. People are sent back because they lie
Me: I got the VISA before i was pregnant for vacation purpose so i waited so i could use it for two things
IO: I insist you are just here to have a baby. whenever we see you women with bumps we know its to birth. Nothing you say matters. we deport the cos they dont wanna tell the truth.
Me: I smiled
IO: so how much do you have
Me: 1k
IO: how do you want to pay.
Me: I have my cards here
IO: what do you do
Me:........
IO: husband coming to join you
Me: He should later
IO: why this houston
Me: cos my brother is here.
stamped for 6 months
no single document was checked. Not even the money bank statement, doctors blabla. No agriculture disturbance blabla. i didnt even spend 30 min at all from the time we arrived and when i was picked.

Good morning all,
This is my first time writing on this page, I need your help, I am due to deliver my baby in July, now I am not Nigerian, I am Tunisian (i.e. arab national) im so scared that if I say I am here for childbirth that they will send me back due to present political issues, should I just say im here for vacation? and hide my bump?
I have a 10 years b1/b2 visa that I got before I get pregnant and I used it for tourism of 20 days last year, now im going same period of last year and will be accompanied by my 3 years daughter and mother in law who has a visa also, im thinking of saying that im here only for vacation for 15 days, and at that time I will be 33 weeks, will they ask me how many weeks I am and will they ask for doctor fit to fly report, will they check my ticket that will have a return date after 2 month sad
I hope you give me your insight and help me decide what to do. many thanks

Hello dear and welcome to our thread. We know where Tunisia is. grin the world cup was held there once I believe. I believe u have been reading this thread so u know what we always preach here. 100% honesty.
In case that dosent sway u, lemme highlight a few points.
1. It is not illegal to birth in the US. No matter what the political issues are. What they want to know is that u are capable of paying and won't be a burden.
2. If u lie at a point of entry, that is misrepresentation. U know that right? Good. That means even if u gain entry, ur visa can be cancelled at anytime. Secondly, a suspecting cbp officer may decide to stamp u in for just 15 days. Again, u realise if u birth in the US and your child is automatically a citizen and u commit a crime, that child can be taken away from u? All these can be avoided.
4. U also realise u really can't 'hide a bump'? A simple xray can show that u are pregnant

*Just write a letter of intent
*say say the truth
* be prepared with doctor's correspondence and have proof that u can pay all your bills.
We look forward to hearing from u WHEN u have entered into the us legally

Simply being honest will save you years of trouble with US immigration.

There is absolutely no need to be dishonest, as long as you can afford it you got nothing to worry about

Jollybaby, many people have used and planning to use Oakbend and there have been reviews in pages backwards. You either use the search here or just read back. Also, oakbend has a website where you can get more info about them, u can use Google for that.
People's final bills are different from one mother's or baby's situation to another. So you can't just go by one persons bill as it's will just be an approximate.
And while reading, you can also get other hospitals that are even more affordable than Oakbend. Cheers!
Re: Give Birth In USA: Cost And Procedures Part 3 by inedevorfa: 11:56am On Mar 31, 2016
LadyGuinivere:

1. You can ENTER the US up until the last day of its validity.
2. You may be stamped in for a period not exceeding 6 months (usually) at the cbp's discretion.
3. U are allowed to stay in the US Depending on the tenure stamped in so if ur visa expires in December and the VO stamps u in for 6 months , technically ur visa has been extended for that long.
4. However if the vo is not minded to do that and decides to stamp u in for the validity of ur visa , you then have issues.
So finally, there are your options. Its now for u to decide of u wanna renew or hope to stamped in longer.
For me. I never take chances and I'd rather have a long term valid visa before travelling

Thank you very much @LadyGuinivere your response was very helpful. I think I might just renew as you said, will give the feedback in due time. Have a great day
