Hubby still be spending his birthday tomorrow in isolation. I'll make him a chocolate birthday cake and see what's in the freezer for a special dinner.
That is good news for the two of you. Stay safe and well and I hope your freezer yields a suitable dinner

I looked at that page for US citizens and reading between the lines, it more or less says, “We aren’t working now. You’re on your own.”

Hello

We finally received our IR1 visa last week, It expires on the the 10th of September.

Husband is the USC (me). My wife is the UKC

The uphill battle we have now is the travel ban and the immigration ban. Our plan is to enter the US in Dallas and get the visa stamped and receive my wife’s LPR. I have searched all through these forums and found some very helpful information. So my question is, once the travel ban is lifted and IF the immigration ban is extended will we be able to travel and be admitted to the US under IR1?

Are you sure it applies to them?

Also:

"Some exceptions include, but are not limited to: foreign diplomats traveling to the United States on A or G visas and certain family members of U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents including; spouses"

Thanks for your reply. I have seen this same information in the link you provided. Much appreciated, we have tried to contact the embassy but are not having much luck,

I just wish there was a simple and easy to follow chart to say which visa allow travel during both bans. So confusing.
