Hello everyone, my fiancée 129F petition have been approved but I realized I put a wrong consulate location on my petition. I put the information of my fiancée home country consulate on my petition but that consulate doesn't process immigrant visa or fiancée visa at that location, instead they are process at a neighboring country's consulate. Do any of you VJ members have the same issues or any advice as what to do to rectify this without any major delay.

If the consulate you put doesn't process K-1 visas then NVC will route it to nearest consulate that does…you can always call NVC to make sure what embassy they are sending your package to

Thanks you all, that's what I thought too. I send an email to NVC telling them I put in a wrong consulate location and also email both consulate trying to see where the package is shipped to. I will follow up with a call tomorrow and see what they say.

I was in the same situation and I did contact NVC, but once they receive your case they quickly send out to the listed embassy. Sometimes they don't catch mistakes and send it to a wrong place. If that happens e-mail the correct embassy to have them transfer your file. They say it takes 4 weeks. They will requst file for you. Good luck.
