Changing Country?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all :D So.. I'm moving from Trinidad to Germany before I receive my NOA2. Hopefully (which I think there is) there is a way to change my beneficiary address. Has anyone ever done something like this before? Can anyone tell me the procedure to changing countries/embassies?

P.s. Yes, I am a duel citizen, so no worries (I get that question every time I mention it).

It seems like there has been loads of threads on this with no real answers! The best answer I could find was this http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/347815-changing-beneficiary-address-after-i-129-sent-possible-or-not/but essentially it seems that before NOA2 you phone USCIS to make this change and after NOA2 then NVC might be able to do this for you.

Best of luck!

I don't know where you are in the process, but you should send in an email request to NVC and state your request to have your receipt # case sent to a different embassy and explain the situation. Then you should call NVC and follow up immediately when it is received by them to assure it is going to be sent to the other embassy. I have completed this process (my fiance is living in one country but going to an embassy in another country).
