Resident visas in other countries

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking about taking out a resident visa here in Chile so that I can stay here without having to leave and come back every 3 months. Do you think that will make it more difficult for me to say that I have a U.S. domicile if I'm a Chilean resident? My domicile there is just my dad's house, so I don't have anything in my name. I'm just interested to know if my residency here would make it more difficult for me during the visa process.


01/26/2008: Married.

02/06/2008: U.S. Embassy in Santiago informs me that they are not much for dumb rules and I CAN direct file!

03/06/2008: Applied for Chilean resident visa, which will allow me to direct file.

04/17/2008: Chilean visa approved.

06/04/2008: Applied for husband's visa at U.S. Embassy.

06/13/2008: Final interview date set for July!

07/01/2008: Medical exam.

07/09/2008: Final interview and approval of visa!

It might.

You will want to review the I-864 instructions - bottom of page 5 and page 6.

Thanks a lot for the link!

I accepted an American university's offer to study there in August, so I'm sure that will be enough to prove that I will have U.S. domicile by the time my husband gets his visa.
