DCF in Jakarta

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So I sent The Immigrant Visa (IV) unit of the US Embassy Jakarta this email, hoping to get some help with my DCF...

Hello, My name is Jeff and I am an American citizen currently living and working in Indonesia.  I'm going to be marrying an Indonesian woman and we plan to return to the United States in June.  I'd like to know first of all if this embassy accepts direct consular filing, and if it does, what should my first step be for filing?

...so, anybody else been through this already? I'd love to hear any advice/stories about it. You can either reply to this thread, or just toss me a message. Greatly appreciated, thanks!

According to the US Embassy Jakarta's page on Filing Immigrant Visa Petitions as long as you have been residing there for a continuous 6 months or more, then yes, you are eligible for DCF: http://jakarta.usembassy.gov/consular/IVPETITIONS.html

For steps on filing the petition see: http://jakarta.usembassy.gov/consular/IVIMMEDIATE.html

And I did a search in this forum for you and found this: http://www.visajourney.com/forums/index.ph...&hl=jakarta

I just wanted to say thanks to the both of you, I appreciate it.

For anyone that was curious, this was the reply that I got:

Mr. ------,

U.S. citizen petitioners who have been resident in Indonesia or Timor Leste continuously for the past six months and have had permission to do so (KIMS or KITAS holder) are eligible to file an I-130 petition for an immediate relative at the U.S. Embassy in Jakarta. Please note that the Consulate General in Surabaya does not accept I-130 petitions, nor do they conduct immigrant visa processing or interviews. Individuals who are in Indonesia or Timor Leste on a temporary status, such as student or tourist, do not meet the residency standard. The U.S. citizen petitioner must make a personal appearance at the Embassy to file a petition in Indonesia.

To file the I-130 petition, you can come to the Immigrant Visa Unit, Monday – Friday from 0730-1100. No appointment is necessary. Please bring the completed form and document to file the petition;

1. I-130 petition

2. G-325A (completed one set with your information and the other set with your spouse information)

3. Passport (you and your wife; original and copy)

4. Birth Certificate (you and your wife; original and copy)

5. Marriage Certificate (original and copy)

6. Divorce Decree (if applicable – you and your wife; original and copy)

7. Fee of USD355.00 (payable in USD or Rupiah cash)

8. One photo of each
