Change of address for beneficiary?

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Sorry guys, one more question. I need to change the address for my beneficiary. When I called to do so I was told to simply send in an email and write our receipt number, his old address, and his new address. However, I can't find an email at VSC to send that too as the only email I see is for follow up for service requests and I see a form AR-11 or something on the website... But he never mentioned that to me and it doesn't seem to apply when I look at the form as it has spots to write in things like 'port of entry'?

Yeah, AR-11 appears to only be for residing aliens in the US. Being that you are the one with a case pending, your fiance is not really in the picture yet. I suppose you could contact USCIS to note this, but I'm not sure how reliable this would be down the line. The important thing would be to contact the embassy once you know the petition is on its way. The beneficiary will be receiving correspondence once the petition leaves NVC. I've read about others being successful at this approach. I suppose the case number, beneficiary name, former address, and current address would suffice in making the corrections needed.

Thank you for the response. The guy on the phone said to email it to uscis but I see no address. It's weird.... I'm so afraid he will miss some important information. I'd like to make sure they have the right address before the stuff starts getting sent all over, but yeah, it's confusing. At least I know ar-11 is definetly wrong now.

Call back and ask again. Then when they say to email, ask for the preferred email address. I also wouldn't count on them getting it right but you have other ways for him to be informed of his London process.

After approval, call NVC to find out the new LND case number and when the file left for the embassy.

The letter he should get from the embassy is not important. The instructions and forms are on the London website. A copy of the letter is posted in this helpful London thread http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/350185-london-2012-k1s-from-noa2-to-interview-thread/

Calling the Dept of State can confirm London has the file or if they have mailed a letter. It's a US number and is not charged per minute like calling London embassy. Embassy charges for answering the phone. Once you know London has the file or sent the instruction letter (formerly called packet 3) then its safe to send the forms to London without actually getting their letter.

I have the same problem, my fiancee moved back to her sisters home. From what I have found through reading posts after doing a search it seems what most have done is have NVC change the address before it is sent to the embassy. You have to call until you can get your case number and then once you have this you can have the address changed.

So can anyone comfirm this approach? Thanks

Yes, that should work. NVC can pull up your case from your USCIS number. But you need to be diligent about timing. I realize some cases now are held up at NVC, but ideally they should pass through there in about 3 days, so important to make the change within that period. You have a different consulate, so I don't know if receiving your instruction letter from the consulate matters. For London you don't really need it. They can submit the new beneficiary address on the visa application forms and all will be well.
