We are filling out I130/I130A forms. The beneficiary is Italian, recently moved to Switzerland (current place of work), and still don't have a definitive address (using Airbnb for now). Can we use the beneficiary's work address for the process and change to the home address when finally move

I think the main question is: can we use the work address as physical address to file the forms or should we wait until have the home address?

Work address is fine, as long as it's not a PO box (double check, but I recall something about that a PO box is not accepted, but that might be for AOS lol)

 

His/her address gets important once the file gets sent over to the embassy, so if you change it before then you should be good

I agree, but I would use the space on the last page to write a quick explanation that you've used the work address and why.  There will be another opportunity to provide a current address at the NVC stage.  No need to worry about it until then.

I have a new question regarding the physical address. On I130A, Part 1 we have to list the 5-years address history. While I was living in Brazil, I had many trips to Italy and the USA in these last 5 years staying some months on each, but only 6 months I was registered in Italy.  Just as an example, let's say:

  1. March/04/1994 - June/03/2016: Brazil
  2. June/04/2016 – December/06/2016 – Italy
  3. December/06/2016 – present: Brazil

From March/2017 to September/2018 I was traveling back and forth, several times, to the US for pleasure and business staying there for 5 to 6 months each (never overstayed) but my residency was Brazil. Finally, in March I’m moving to Switzerland (still with no fixed address).

 The questions are:

Should I list just the temporary Swiss address (the one I’m applying from), then the 3 Brazilian/Italian listed above (in the descendant order); or should I list every place I was staying (even for vacation/business), including last February (entire month) I spent with my spouse un the US?

Do I need to send the Police Clearance for all these places with my application or I will need these documents only for the interview in the consulate?
