I need information for direct consular filing for my Taiwanese spouse. I am getting conflicting reports. My question is if I can file for dcf at the Bangkok uscis because that is the office that covered our jurisdiction. I want to find that out before I send a $535 check to the lockbox in Chicago and have my case pending for a year, when this option is viable. 

 

Second question is if DCF is available at the AIT in Taipei? I read co flirting stories abt that but I haven’t been able to reach anyone with a valid response. AIT informs me to contact uscis, uscis phone number has an automated recording. Which doesn’t help me answer any questions. ASK EMMA, doesn’t answer my questions either. I emailed both parties but keep being told that they can’t answer because I am in Taiwan and they don’t have jurisdiction.

 

Thank you for your time, and assistance.

There is no DCF in Taiwan. You can look up the USCIS offices abroad. 

 

You might be able to file in Bangkok but you should contact them and ask them if you qualify. You should not just pay and file before contacting them. 

 

You are supposed to contact the consulate, not USCIS in the U.S. Have you sent an email to the consulate in Bangkok?

Thanks for your quick response. 

 

Yes, the conflict I found with the dcf in Taiwan is that if you are a us citizen but have legal residence In Taiwan for 6 months+, than we can do it here. 

 

I can can not find an email for the uscis in Bangkok, will be attempting to call them early Tommorow morning before work since Bangkok is 1 hour ahead.

 

Bangkoks uscis office states that Taiwan is in their jurisdiction, but I need to be a residence of Thailand in order to be able to file for DCF there. That’s why I wanted to see if anyone else had any experiences with this before we go the long route of filing with Chicago lockbox which can take up to a year.
