Peru - DCF

5 posts in this topic

Filed: Timeline

I am a US citizen. My wife is Peruvian.

I legally live and work in Peru.

From what I understand, a DCF (direct consular filing) is an option for obtaining spousal visas...however not every consulate offers them.

Anyone know about the US Consulate in Peru?

ok Stupid question, is DCF when you go in person to the embassy and turn in all yor paperwork there, or something like that? anyways...i think that this is the route taken by Scott&DrSara in Peru, talk to them. They turned in everything like in January and in a matter of like 2 or less than 3 months they had visa in hand :thumbs:
