A Florida mom, who adopted two youngsters in Bulgaria, is stranded after the State Department denied a visa software for her son. 

Amy Dobrikova joined “Fox & Friends First” expressing her frustration over the matter, saying this is not the “American way” because the Biden administration makes worldwide journey for the unvaccinated more difficult. 


According to Dobrikova, her household has pursued spiritual exemptions from the vaccine mandate, and has exemption standing for her youngsters, regardless of her son’s visa software denial. 

“My husband and I arrived in Sofia, Bulgaria, to come pick up our new 10 and 12-year-old adopted children, and our agency was just informed that this new Biden policy required two doses of the Pfizer COVID vaccination with a one-month interval before a visa can be issued,” she defined. 

“My family has religious exemption for all of our children, and we do not want this.”

Despite the roadblock, Dobrikova emphasised the significance of giving her youngsters the power to attain the American dream. 

“It’s very sad. My husband is actually originally from Bulgaria and came to America for the great American opportunity, and we want to give this for these kids and right now I can’t even get a visa,” mentioned Dobrikova. 

“I’m a U.S. citizen. My husband’s a U.S. citizen. These children are officially ours. We have a court decree. They have a passport and a birth certificate with our last name, and I can’t get them in the country and this is wrong.”

The Biden administration introduced new vaccine requirements on Monday, tightening restrictions for the unvaccinated who journey internationally. 

The United States would require anybody who is just not an American citizen to be totally vaccinated and present proof of vaccination standing upon entry starting on November 8. 

“We need rapid approval of our I-601[A] granting our waiver for religious exemption and honoring this,” Dobrikova pleaded. 

“There was no grace period given for this policy that went into effect. They did not consider adoptive families that are in country, and I think in the future, if they’re going to do policy, [they should] give a grace period so people can plan.”
