DCF PERU from other countries

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have an important question. I have been reading this site for quite a while.........and now I am starting the process for myself and so I decided it is time I joined to contribute to others. I was reading a post by Chilegringa a few weeks ago Link to her post. In the post she talked about how she wants to DCF in Chile. Someone said no you cant. Chile doesnt have a USCIS Field office which is true.

I find myself in the same situation. I am about to be married this coming month to my wonderful fiance. I have been living in Argentina for almost 2 years now. When we first started our visa process we were let down by the long processing times of the K-series visa. So we tried to get a tourist visa( she had to come back to Argentina for a family thing anyways) and the idea was that she travels to the US with me, we apply for the K1 while shes there and then she comes back and waits until it is approved. Well we went to Buenos Aries and the tourist visa was rejected for lack of ties to Argentia. Bummer.

Fast forward 3 months and we have a new approach. As we will be married we can now apply for the CR1 visa. We still do not want to wait and so we want to do it as quickly and effciently as possible. DCF. The question I have that no one seems to talk about is if you can file for DCF in another country. The offical page of the USCIS field office in Peru says the following.......

"The Lima Field Office has jurisdiction over immigration benefits and services in the following countries: Peru, Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay, and Uruguay."

If that is the case. Can people in situations similar.......ALL THE PEOPLE IN ARGENTINA BOLIVA BRAZIL PARAGUAY AND URUGUAY.....Can we DCF in Peru? I sure hope so. I called the other day to see.......but I have to call back at another time. The woman told me it shouldnt be a problems as we are citizens of a Country that is below the jurisdiction of the Peru Field office. Can anyone confirm this..........Thanks a lot. Hopefully this will be of use to others.

Sorry my friend but you can't file DCF in Peru for your spouse. It's not available in Argentina either. I was living with my spouse in Buenos Aires for 10 months and I just came back home at the end of March. We filed our petition on January 13 and are still waiting on approval. The only suggestion I have for fast approval is that if your going to file while in Argentina, use the Argentina address not your U.S address. Since January, petitioner who filed from abroad and used their aboard address got approved in as little as seven days. If you do more research on the website you can see the trend. I didn't get so lucky since I used my U.S address because I came to Argentina as a tourist and had no visa

What are they trying to say then when they say........The Lima Field Office has jurisdiction over immigration benefits and services in the following countries: Peru, Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay, and Uruguay. Thats what I dont understand. If they have jurisdiction why can I not go there and do it! I really cannot wait anymore to go back to the US. I have a visa to live here.....and residency If I want through my wife...but we are ready to go. I could only hope it would be 7 days!

You do not reside in a country with a public counter presence. So you would file through the Chicago lockbox. http://travel.state.gov/visa/immigrants/immigrants_5254.html

I'm not sure but I went to the U.S EMBASSY in Argentina and they told me that you can only file DFC in Argentina if there is an emergency which has to be approved by them first. But you do have to send you petition to the chicago lockbox from argentina but when you make sure to use your Argentina address on the form not your U.S adress. Once they see that you are living abroad with you spouse, the approval process will be faster trust me.. Many people who filed from overseas and used the overseas adress got approved in less than 30 days..I didn't use my overseas adress since I had no visa or residency in Argentina..
