DCF I-130 - Embassy address?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Some background:

My wife is a USC, and I'm a UKC - we're planning to move back to the US, at least semi-permanently,after being married and in the UK for five years.

I believe that as we're both currently outside the UK, we should file via DCF (before the deadline of August 15th), and as such we've got all of the paperwork (I-130, G235a's, et al) completed.

However, I was wondering exactly where to send it. Presumably to <Somewhere> in the London US embassy, but is there a specific department to send DCF applications to?

The mailing address I picked up for the Embassy is:

24 Grosvenor Square

London, W1A 1AE

United Kingdom

but I don't know whom to send it to at that address.

I suspect this is spectacularly obvious, but any help is, of course, gratefully received.

Can't help witht he exact address, but I assume you meant to say you are both outside the USA, not outside the UK? In any case, as the UK has a USCIS field office, you will be able to file DCF even after the 15th: http://www.uscis.gov/portal/site/uscis/menuitem.eb1d4c2a3e5b9ac89243c6a7543f6d1a/?vgnextoid=1ac900c262197210VgnVCM100000082ca60aRCRD&vgnextchannel=1ac900c262197210VgnVCM100000082ca60aRCRD

Here's the checklist for filing, if you haven't seen it: http://photos.state.gov/libraries/unitedkingdom/164203/dhs/i130-checklist_for_spouse.pdf It gives the link to the page with addresses. http://london.usembassy.gov/dhs/uscis/ You will probably use this address:

USCIS Field Office

American Embassy (DHS/USCIS)

Post Office Box 2444

London W1A 5WT

The correct address for filing with the US Embassy in London is:

Immigrant Visa Unit

Embassy of the United States

5 Upper Grosvenor Street

London W1A 2JB
