Hello everyone;

I petitioned for my wife (I-130) at the U.S embassy in Djibouti. It was actually a new petition due to the war that happened in yemen my family escaped to Djibouti and the USCiC gave the embassy a lot of authorities to process cases and accept new petitions for the families of u.s citizen, who were in yemen, without going through USCIC or NVC. I received package 4 on the same day i petitioned and also paid the fee and my case was approved so all is remaining is the DS 260 and final interview. She was scheduled for an interview on July 2 2015 but we were having a difficulty with DS 260 before the interview. I am able to log in but there is actually no form to fill out it only says "no data found". I contacted the embassy and they told me to contact NVC. I called NVC and they said the case is not coming up on their system because I did not file through USCIC and there is nothing they can do.I called the embassy and told them what they NVC said and they told me to keep calling them (like they have no idea how much long distance calls cost). We went to the interview on July 2nd and were simply told to go home because she cant be interviewed unless the DS 260 i tried to explain but they were not very understanding. And now a month has passed since the interview and still the same error and same problem dont know what to do because i am stuck here with my wife and 3 kids (my kids have american passports already). Any help or suggestions on what to do would be appreciated. I attached a photo of the error i am getting it seems to be a weird one.

Thanks for ur reply.. Yes i did call visa center recently and spoke with a supervisor and this is what they told me

"They said they have no access to my case right now since the petition wasnt filed with them."

"They also said the technical issues have been solved on their end and if theres any issues now it should be on the consulates end"

Called the embassy and told them all this and they said everything is ok on their side ???!!! So my case is stuck somewhere And no one can figure it out and btw my brother petitioned for his wife at the same day i did and had no problem with ds 260.. She already got her visa the whole process from submitting the petition until she got her visa only took a month

Since you filed directly with the embassy, don't you need DS-230 instead of DS-260 ? NVC is right they can't do anything because application is not going through them

Here's the guide for direct filing

Hey lufyz.. This is what i have thinking about lately and found it weird that they requested ds 260 instead of ds 230 but as i mentioned earlier my brother was in the same situation as me. He filed directly with the embassy and they also required him to fill out the ds 260 not ds 230 and it worked. I asked people with similar cases like mine and they said they filled out ds 260 and no issues (a lot of people are filing here because of the war situation) . Should i get a lawyer to do something about it and file ds 230 instead? This country is very hot, expensive and my kids cant stop crying and getting sick all the time. It is reaching 115 F these days and it is not fun. I am getting too frusterated
