I've called the USCIS about this several times and I get a different answer every time. :angry: So I'm hoping someone here can help. Since the story is so long, let me bulletpoint it:
-My fiance lives in Russia, I'm a USC with an extremely flexible and remote job
-I'm currently living in Russia with my fiance
-I filed I-129f at the end of May, was notified June 3rd of NOA-1
-On I-129f, I listed my mailing address as here in Russia. The I-129f form has space for the petitioner to write in a different province and country for a mailing address, so I assumed I could receive NOA's at my current mailing address. Apparently this is not true.
-On my cover letter with my I-129f, I included both my current mailing address (in Russia) and my permanent address (in the USA). The person checking my mail at home said I've not received any mail from USCIS.
-I cannot change my address online because there is no way to enter a foreign address.
-I called USCIS to change my address several times and continued to get conflicting information or I got disconnected.
So my questions for you experts:
1.) I've been told that I cannot receive NOA's abroad, but I've read some people have. Is there anyone who has received NOA's abroad?
2.) I can reorder new copies of NOA's - will it affect the process if I cannot get NOA's now?
3.) What's the fastest way to go about changing my mailing address, especially if I'm not sure where the USCIS is mailing my NOA's?
