I’m Belgian, my bf active duty US military, our daughter have dual citizenship, Belgian birth certificate, Birth abroad certificate, US and Belgian passport.
I would travel on ESTA, I need to reapply for it since it expired in April.
To be short we qualify in the exceptions from the White House proclamation of travel ban.
“Sec. 2. Scope of Suspension and Limitation on Entry.
(a) Section 1 of this proclamation shall not apply to:
(iii) any alien who is the parent or legal guardian of a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident, provided that the U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident is unmarried and under the age of 21;”
I can’t travel to US from Belgium, government forbid travel to USA unless it’s for funerals or caring for a dying family member.
As I wanna take the less risks, I would like to fly from Paris CDG, France to Dallas, Fort Worth, USA, American Airlines have a straight flight.
American Airlines, United Airlines both told me that since I qualify with the White House proclamation exemptions, I would be able to board, if I bring the birth certificate, my bf passport as well as my daughter passport.
CBP confirmed on the phone that I could go to USA straight.
I called Paris Airport, the French Border Police told me that I would have no issue to board if I qualify, problem the Police officer I got on the line didn’t want to send me an email as proof of what he was saying… He didn’t want to give me the PAF email either…
I’m stuck here between, booking for 2.100 € of train and plane tickets and get to the airport with my 2 years and 9 months old and not booking a regret it.
I’m so scared to be denied boarding and have to crush my daughter’s hope of seeing her dad, she is getting excited everytime she see a plane, saying she will go see her dad soon, she is getting excited everytime I pack a small bag, thinking she is going to see her dad.
I really need to find a real answer, does anybody have PAF email address ? Is there any way I can be sure to board that plane ?
Thanks you to anyone who will even read that long ass post.
