Newborns born abroad to Lawful Permanent Residents (LPRs) or U.S. citizens no need visa

Updated: Nov 24, 2023

In situations where an LPR or U.S. national mother gives birth during a temporary visit abroad, the child can return with the mother without the need for a visa. However, there are specific criteria that must be met to facilitate this smooth process:

  1. Age Limit: The child should be under two years old.

  2. First Return: It must be the first return of the accompanying parent to the United States after the birth of the child.

  3. Admissibility: The accompanying parent must be found admissible to the United States.

Understanding these conditions can significantly ease the process of bringing your newborn home without the complexities of obtaining a visa. If you have any further inquiries or require clarification on this matter, please feel free to schedule your consultation with our attorney.
