Allegiance and fidelity are different from citizenship. Whether you have a country's citizenship or nationality is decided solely by that country's law, and for many countries, renouncing citizenship ...

The statement from the linked page simply means that green card holders can return to the US across the US-Canada land border. I don't really understand what this has to do with "country (restricted to travel due to COVID-19)" in your title.

Although I'm not familiar with Indian nationality law, I assume that your child will be an Indian citizen at birth. As a minor child of a permanent resident, your child is eligible to apply for F2A immigration visa (just like your wife). According to the Visa Bulletin For May 2020, there doesn't seem to be any backlog of applications, so you can start the ...

USCIS is not usually involved in determination whether a permanent resident can return to the US. It would be the immigration officers at entry, part of the CBP, or the immigration judges in immigration court, that would deal with eligibility for entry. USCIS does deal with whether a permanent resident has enough continuous residence to qualify for ...

If your wife specified on the I-130 a consulate where you will do Consular Processing, and left the part about office where you will do Adjustment of Status blank, USCIS should send the approved petition to NVC after I-130 approval, and not hold onto it to wait for you to file Adjustment of Status. You should not have to file I-824 unless your wife had ...

However: Because your inability to travel to the US is for reasons outside of your control, you can have the visa replaced (paying once again any required fees) before the end of the fiscal year. You should contact the consulate that issued the visa for information about this option. If you've done the above and the ...
