Hi to everyone,

I just received the email alerting that our 130 was approved... YEAH!!!!

It sounds like we will have to go to Guangzhou for the interview and final part of the process. It seems like Guangzhou has a slightly different process and can be a little difficult at times. Now to the stupid question, can we request our VISA be processed at a different Embassy in China?

Thanks,

The more experienced guys will chime in here I am sure, but my understanding is that Guangzhou is the only embassy processing fiancee and spouse visas. I have heard that other embassies will do this, but they are special cases, and you would know if you are connected enough to be a "special" case. We are all in the Guz boat...sink or swim...you will survive. :thumbs:

Only way you can escape GUZ is DCF, Direct Consular Filing and to do this you need to live in China for a period of time, I think 6 months but could be wrong on that. If you DCF you can file at your closest Consulate office which may in fact still be GUZ unless you are near Beijing.

that is a totally awesome stupid question :thumbs:

try for Canada, :star:

look it can't hurt to ask. I betcha no one has ever had the nerve.

They do what 30,000 a year and maybe they need some other embassies to share the load.

I know, you prefer quicker Beijing dontcha!! (don't we all) ha! yer no fool

all joking aside, they are assigned a region and that is that. If she resides in it, tough bunkies, GUZ is it.

:innocent:

ChinaQuest52 - alas, no. All Spousal Visas are interviewed and processed at GUZ, even the DCF'd I-130's. Even if there was a WAY to request it (which there's not ) there's NO OTHER USConsulate in China handling interview/adjudication. None.

BTW - any word on NVC processing for your petition? Are ya ready? Don't forget to OPT IN for NVC Electronic Processing, you can shave off 60 to 180 days of 'wait time'.

ChinaQuest52 - KUDOS to you, btw, for having 50 days duration at VSC - perhaps the backlog is over? (Or was your casefile transferred to CSC? Have a look at the NOA-2 ).

I just looked at the NOA2 and our petition has indeed been forwarded to the NVC in NH. I will ask about the electronic processing, just like everyone else here I'd love to "shave off" 60 to 180 days. :dance:

Please advise I am USC living 3+ years with chinese wife in CQ China. Go back and forth on B1, Want to get green card for her. Want to DCF if possible t , I guess guongzhou is the only place. I work independent for my self I was doctor in States, She is translator. We spend about 80% our time in humanitarian work for US based Non profit corp. Low pay high rewards, I have L visa which I renew year to year. Most of the year we are in China. Usually 8- 9 months on average. Question, If I go for DCF do i get the opportunity in my situation or do i not meet certain requirements. Sorry i just started looking into immigration for green card. One attorney said dont go K visa just do DCF , IR-1 or Cr-1 what do you or anyone else think?

Thanks again
