3 reasons why birth tourism in the USA is a bad idea

If a child is born in the USA to foreign parents
According to the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution, if a child is born in the USA to foreign parents, he/she receives citizenship automatically, getting the right to live, study, and work in the country. What is more, at the age of 21, such child can apply for family reunification to help his/her immediate relatives get Green Cards. No wonder that birth tourism in the USA is thriving! Every year, thousands of pregnant women fly out to the foreign land to give their baby a chance to be born in one of the countries with the highest standards of living. Companies across the world offer all-inclusive USA birth tourism packages. They focus on highlighting the benefits of having a baby abroad while keeping quiet about the many difficulties a mother-to-be can face.
Citizenship for a baby born in the US

The horrifying cost of childbirth in the USA

It is no secret that applying for an American visa is a long and torturous process. You are looking at a ton of paperwork and numerous visits to the embassy to meet with strict interviewers who will meticulously try to find a reason to reject your application. If they so much as even suspect that you are planning a baby delivery in the USA to get citizenship, you can forget about ever setting foot in America. What is worse, if your deception comes out after you give birth, you will be deported without a right to ever come back. And a child born in the USA to foreign parents who broke the law or visa requirements in any way can be easily taken away from them! According to the statistics, more than 150,000 immigrant families were separated from their children in the last 20 years. Think about that before you decide to give birth in the U.S.

Can you keep up with the stress?

As we already mentioned, applying for a U.S. visa is hardly hassle-free. Add to this delivery planning, a long flight, settling in a strange city, adapting to the new climate and food, finding a doctor – and you will get a recipe for a stressful pregnancy that can harm the health of the mother-to-be as well as the child. Is citizenship for the baby born in the U.S. really worth it? We think not.

The prices are steep

Miami, Los Angeles, and New York are the three most popular destinations for birth tourism in North America. The average price for a baby delivery package here is $35,000. This includes processing documents, transfer, accommodation for 3-4 months, medical care before, during, and after the birth for both mom and the newborn. Should anything go wrong, this price will fly even higher. And if you fail to pay all the hospital bills, you will be deported and blacklisted forever. So how much does it cost to give birth in the USA? Nobody can tell you for sure, but one thing is definite: U.S. hospitals can take everything down to the last penny from anyone who is not covered by insurance.
