Thanks dear. This means that JFK is way better tha. Houston or Atlanta airport. She is a first timer to the U.s. she will have the receipt for her doctors deposit fee and also accomodation paid and hopefully hold a substantial amount of money .
God will see us through..

It's so painful we have to take all these pains cos of unstable health care... so painful

I fly in and out of Houston almost on a weekly basis, it’s a breeze if you’re honest. God will not see anyone through if they have obtained a visa through fraudulent means or are willfully choosing to abuse their visa.

Has anyone sent the change of intent letter recently.
I applied for vacation in November last year 2018 with hubby and my LO. the Vo actually asked us if we were going to use the us for medical assistance and we said we would if we got pregnant.
She advised us against taking insurance and granted us visa.
Now, I got pregnant the following month.
I'm due to travel. Soon alone with my LO.
My husband will join us later
My poe is Atlanta.
Any advice for us

The change of intent letter is a Nigerian contraption. It’s not read or attached to your application. Since you did truthfully indicate your intent to have your child in the US during your interview, you should be fine. Make sure you have enough funds to show at your Poe (location does not matter), evidence of a doctor/hospital you intend to use and stay away from cheap “discount” birthing hospitals. Good luck!

Unstable health care lol. Millions birth in Nigeria daily. Just say you want the passport.

My last pregnancy, if I were abroad what happened wouldn’t have happened (in a government hospital and so called best private hospital) so for that reason alone I will never stay in Nigeria for birthing once I’m advancing I move straight. So For some people it has to do with the health care

lol!...Are you minding the covered-up excuse?

If really Nigerians were desperately giving birth abroad just for the healthcare and not mainly for the US or Canadian Passport then they would have tried to give birth in other advanced countries like the UK, France or even Spain.

But as we all already know that those European countries do not give citizenship by just soil.

Healthcare is more expensive in the US than the UK...and this goes for people paying out of pocket.

People who didn't mind not getting the UK passport but gave birth in the UK paid way cheaper then they would have paid in the US.

So all those people jumping the bandwagon to get discounted child birth health care in the US will meet their fate with the US visa officers when it's time to renew.

On which authority is this ? I was resident in the Uk so I know that if you don’t have NHS or insurance you cover you’re cutting your throat to pay and you’re paying up to £20k, before I resorted to Canada by first option was the UK , I won’t do this argument with you because you obviously don’t know what you’re talking about , healthcare being expensive is relative you cannot say healthcare in the Uk is cheaper than the USA when you can go to the USA and birth with 5500 dollars and return

the people I know are with Total and it’s two weeks here two weeks there , sometimes they even do Lagos to Newcastle, so I believe it’s possible for him to say he flies almost every week, almost every week can be bi-monthly.

Lagos to Newcastle is good sis. That’s about 7 hits give or take. LOS - IAH is around 13-14 hours. Why?

Birthing is just as expensive in the US. The $5500 costs quoted here are heavily subsidized, which is why the VOs are now cracking down.

Hi guys, please i need a response please

pookie007:
Hi everyone,

Been reading through the thread and i think i found some answers but i just want to be sure

i just found out that i'm pregnant and i'm thinking of going to have my baby in the US or Canada

I schooled in the US (F1) and after 6 years i moved back home, i applied for B1/B2 visa with my family in 2016 but didnt get to travel till December 2017, spent two weeks and came back. I did dropbox for my sister and i last year November (2018) and i got my B1/B2 VISA but i was still single. Now i'm married and pregnant, can i still use this same visa to go have my baby? or i have to apply for a medical visa?

If i dont have to apply for another visa, what is the likelihood of being sent back at the POE?

BTW my due date is sometime in December 2019.

Thank You

My personal advise is that, with a due date of Dec, just fill in another DS160 and reapply even though you already have a valid visa.

Your new application will be specifically for medical...take your doctor and hospital correspondences and bank statements showing ability to pay...try and get a hospital where the charges are at least 10 to 15k dollars.

I believe reapplying gives you credibility that you're not trying to sneak in...even though B1/B2 is for multiple uses. I did this in Dec 2017 even though I had a visa that was still valid till Apr 2019 then. I was given. I again reapplied this year (just to be in sync with my family members who were reapplying) and got a renewal just this May...thank God......in the midst of many denials.

Some others may say just go...sebi you already have a visa...just tell them at POE...that is their view.

All the very best.

Re: Give Birth In USA: Cost And Procedures Part 6 by OmoBendel24: 11:32am On May 16
Seems there's a new development now, namely; wait time (between one B1/B2 visa refusal and application for another of same category) adjustment from 6 to 12 months in the offing maybe, and a dichotomy in the dates allocated to applicants for renewal and those for normal applications. Dunno exactly, just speculating on what/where the attached image may just be headed....

N.B// This is for Abuja as of about now

@Gingerzinger Congrats and thanks for sharing this is very helpful.

Please can you share the new hospital and doctor details you plan to use, as my case looks very similar to yours. Really appreciate.
