Hi,

I just received my NOA1 text message notification last week (my fiance lives in Russia) and on the 1-129F I put that she would have her interview in St. Petersburg. But when reading through the embassy/consul ratings I learned that only the Moscow Embassy handles immigration in Russia. So I need to change my 1-129F to state that she will have the interview in Moscow. How can I do this? What do you think will happen?

Thanks for any advice you can give

As far as I have read here, people who have made mistakes about the embassy on their I-129F had it corrected once the petition was approved and sent to NVC. I believe it will be automatically directed to the correct embassy.

The U.S. consulates in St. Petersburg and Ekaterinburg do not handle K-1 interviews (how I wish they did!). They are handled only in Moscow and Vladivostok.

So I can't see anybody trying to schedule an interview for your fiance in St. Petersburg. Surely they will set it in Moscow instead.

We did the same thing, NVC will correct the mistake and it shouldn't slow down your peititon

We put 'toronto' instead of Montreal and NVC made the appropriate corrections

Good luck

NVC will change it to Moscow. No action needed on your part.

Best wishes!

I sure hope they don't schedule her for Vladivostok :o

B-)

I just looked at the website for the Consulate in Vladivostok, they don't process K1's. I also looked at the immigrant visa section on the Embassy in Moscow website and it contained K1 information. I can say with 99% certainty that your fiancee's interview will take place in Moscow.

It will be assigned there automatically.

They know where to send it. Not a problem. I'd suggest you hang out in the RUB regional forum where there are tons of folks who are/have gone through Moscow and can lend exact information as you two go through the process.

Doesn't matter where you live in Russia, the K-1 interview will always take place in Moscow. When I applied for the K-1 petition in May 2010, I also put St. Petersburg–my wife's home city–and Moscow was eventually set as the interview location.

Also, pass this site on to your fiancee: zaokeanom.com/forum

Lots of info here for those immigrating from Russia to USA. What to expect, form examples, interview scenarios, and on and on.

If you have any questions, please, ask away. Per my timeline you can see I recently went through what you are now going through.

Best

Ben

just here to confirm, because i've been looking everywhere, that only Moscow handles fiancee and immigrant visas.

all consulates handle everything else.
