    Hello, I am US citizen a teacher in California, I would like to go abroad teach in ME, however I am just worried about my husband not being able to join me because he in not a US citizen,he does not hold a USA passport. He is currently living in Pakistan and holds Pakistani passport. We are legally married. Has anyone been in similar situation where their partner was able to join them? How long can it take and what are my options? Please share experience.

    Do you mean your husband join you overseas or in the US? I can't speak for ME but I'm in the US with my American husband and currently going through the immigration process to get a green card. We applied in october 2017 and are expecting the process to take at least a year.

    Is ME the Middle East? I don't think someone with a Pakistan passport would have a problem getting into most Middle eastern countries. Probably easier than getting into the USA!
