K1 Updating Address, Case at Montreal

Posted (edited)

Hey guys, so I had to move and my petition is already at the Montreal consulate. The CEAC website changed to a "ready" status this morning. I'm the beneficiary, and I have been a bit confused as to whether it is me or my fiance (petitioner) who is meant to be receiving the Packet 3. I was originally thinking he would get the Packet 3, then we would fill in the DS-160 and update my address there, and then they would send me the next instruction after that.

 

Do I just try and call the embassy to update the address or is there a different way I'm supposed to do it? We had some issues getting through to NVC over the phone, so I tried emailing Ask NVC before my fiance found out that it was already on its way to the embassy (my fiance missed the email notification). He didn't think to ask about updating the address at that time.

You do the packet 3 not your fiance.  You do the DS-160.  It's your visa application.  Change your address there.  Contacting Montreal isnt necessary.

Packet 3 is available for download.  Dont wait for it.

As far as I know once your petition ends up at Montreal embassy, everything has to be directed to them to make any changes. NVC is just a processing center.

Yes you're correct, I was just hoping to intercept at NVC before it was sent off but it was too late already.

Yeah I figured it would be me that needs to complete the packet 3 but I wasn't sure how it would be delivered. I began the DS-160 but I want to be absolutely sure I have the most up to date Packet 3 before I send anything in to them.

As an update my fiance did end up phoning this morning and they only accept emails now, so I will probably just try and complete the next steps. I have mail forwarding on my old address for the next month so hoping it'll be ok.

I changed my address when my case arrived in Montreal. Just email them. You may get a form response back that says nothing about changing your address (this happened to me) and if it does, reply again and say something to the effect of no, I did not send you my P3 early; I am trying to change my address. Should not be an issue at all.

Thank you, we sent along an email. Will likely be a while before we hear anything back but hopefully it'll be done in time
