Is this a problem?

I've been teaching in South Korea for the last 5 years. I'm a South African citizen that met my future husband in South Korea. I can go through the process at the US Embassy South Korea whilst still living here right? I don't have to go back to South Africa for this do I?

This may be a silly question, but better safe than sorry :) I appreciate any assistance :) Thank you!

You file from the country where you live, unless you are "undocumented" which in your case I doubt.


There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all . . . . The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic . . . . There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.

Filing an I-129F for K-1 visa ?

Yup - just make sure your local address is shown on the G-325A and the I-129F.

There's a spot on the form, as well for 'which country/embassy'.

No need to return to South Africa, just remember that you'll need police clearance certificate from there, also any other country you've lived more than 6 months.

Good Luck !


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !
Ya know, you can find the answer to your question with the advanced search tool, when using a PC? Ditch the handphone, come back later on a PC, and try again.

Yep, everyone here is spot on. My fiance is from SA and we met in Uganda, then we traveled to Malawi and that is where we have been dealing with the embassy and our petition is being sent. The hard part for us has been getting the Police report from SA, no one answers the phones numbers at the Police Station in Pretoria. We had a friend send it in for us and they are trying to help but, so far not so good. Especially since we sent it during the World Cup. So, I would definately send tht in as early as possible. They say 21 days till you get it back but we are way past that now and nothing heard. Don't know if you have been back to SA lately but, supposedly its getting pretty bad there as far as the race thing. That's what we've heard anyway and Brenda hasn't been back there for a year now. So, good luck and hope this helps!

Thanks! It does. I used an agent in South Africa that can get it approved within two weeks so I have my PCC. I'm most freaked out about this petition. My fiance is in the States and terrible with paperwork...So I'm trying to do most of it and then send it to him in a more complete state. I've been reading some scary posts about people

that got denied :(

If you guys need my agents contact details let me know? Good luck to you too!
