Can someone help me with NIE for my wife’s mother? We suffered a huge loss this week, had a stillborn baby at almost end of the pregnancy. There is no family around us and my wife needs her mother physically and mentally. She is showing signs of postpartum depression. I did apply for an NIE on humanitarian grounds and it got rejected. Had attached the doctors note too requesting travel for her mother. I am not sure if we should apply again through her email. Can someone share some information

So sorry for your loss. You can anyways try again to see if it works (better than not trying at all).

God are you kidding me? How can they reject such a request! Have you tried to make a lawyer review your request? Some places they offer 30-40 consulting call and they are great in general. On another note, have you tried to look into making her mom flying in those countries where you are allowed to enter? For instance I know most of the people that want come in but they are from the Schengen area they go to Mexico for 10 days or Croatia and then are allowed to come in

So sorry for your loss. Wishing you and your wife all my love. Perhaps try working with an attorney for your next NIE application (maybe see if your job can offer a consultation with one of their immigration attorneys , if they have one). I do think it’ll really be worth having a family member with you guys at this time

Fist of all, you should know that a refusal to approve a visa application does not mean dead end. I have been able to obtain an approval after two rejections in a span of 13 months. The third time I contacted a lawyer to understand “why”. Every one’s situation and circumstance is different. I suggest you don’t go it alone.

I don't have an answer to your question, but I remember my mother going through a similar thing when I was young. May you and your wife have the strength to get through this. I hope she feels better soon and I am sorry for your loss.

Very sorry for your loss. I’m happy to refer an attorney who would give you a discount on building a NIE case.
