Notifying Foreign Resident of Visa Processing at Consulate

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My wife is a naturalized US citizen, and we're filing an I-130 for her mother in Vietnam to start the process for her to receive a green card. The guide for parents indicates after the I-130 is approved, her mother "will be notified to go to the local U.S. consulate to complete [her] visa processing." My wife is concerned that the mail service in her village (Tam Phuoc, Chau Thanh, Ben Tre) may fail to deliver this notice in time for her mother to attend any appointment, assuming they in fact do it by appointment.

So here's my question: Do we have any options to ensure that her mother receives the notification? Is it possible for her or us to find out this information over the phone from the US consulate in Ho Chi Minh City? Is there anything we can file with USCIS to address this concern? Any other ideas?

Call the DoS # regularly to see if any correspondence has been sent to her mother.. then if it has been sent and not received in a long time, more than a few weeks, then mom needs to go to the consulate to get a copy of that letter

If you provide them with email addresses for the petitioner and the beneficiary at the appropriate time, then all notifications will be received by way of email. You wont have to depend on the regular mail for anything.
