I don't believe they hold a list of who's taking the NCLEX and send home people on the list, I am sure they have other stuff to look out for. As long as you have a valid visa to vist the US you should be OK but bear in mind it all depends on the admitting officer. Do not tell lies to them but only answer what you have been asked. They are probably more attentive now as they are clamping down on illegal immigrants and aware that the exam can be taken in other countries. Show plenty of proof that you are planning on leaving and returning back to the Phillipines. If you are 5 months pregnant now and planning on going August/September then you may be pushing flying anyway as many airlines have a limit on how many months you are pregnant and allowed to fly.

I would worry more about being pregnant. The immigration officer might be suspicious that you have an intention to deliver your baby in US and they might just give you a week or two to stay.......not good isn't it.

Anna's right. As long as you have valid B1/B2 and you didn't overstay on your previous US trips or did anything incriminating like working on a tourist visa, etc., you should be fine.

But, it's not just the NCLEX issue. I'm worried about how you'll endure the flight even in the first class if you'll be like 7-8 months. Where is your destination? The East Coast will take more or less 20 hours of travelling. PAL/NW have restrictions from 35-36 wks onwards. Have your OB certificate at hand. PAL has a form you can fill up for expectant passengers.

How long do you plan to stay? Immigration officers might get suspicious that you plan to deliver your baby there to get the citizenship if you will go at 8 months AOG since many Filipinos did this already in the past.

I have some good stories about friends who have flown to the u.s. just to have their babies born here, and even to take their nclex. IT's possible, but you do need to have a valid visa. It's going to be a matter of luck if you don't have one.

now im worried more of me being prego than taking the exam! australia is one of my options though..

Hi! another thing is that, where do you plan to deliver your baby? private or public facility? I think be very cautious on your decisions, I did flew when I was 7 months pregnant and delivered my baby there, I have a tourist visa, currently, I'm in PI and awaiting for my interview.... It's giving me scary thoughts like, would they ask me about delivering my baby...and my lawyer said that they definitely would.... :uhoh3:
