Cr-1 visa application in US embassy Singapore

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

May I know if it’s sensible to make a CR-1 visa application here in Singapore than do it in my home land (Philippines) ?

 I’m married to a US citizen for months now. But decided to comeback to work here in Singapore while my husband is back to work in US. I thought it may take awhile to get a visa process in the Philippines so while waiting and start filling a visa application will carry on my work! 

Best regards

Actually I really want to know if we can do the CR-1 visa application here in Singapore instead?  We got married in Philippines though

We’ll be submitting the application say next week. But considering that I’m still working here (Singapore) might as well apply here instead. Is it possible or we have to do the visa application in the Philippines?

If you haven't submitted your petition yet, you won't be "applying" for a CR1 to any country. Your US citizen spouse will first send the petition packet to the lockbox in the US. Then it will be sent to a service center in the US to be processed. AFTER the petition is approved, then it will be sent to the NVC stage (national visa center) when your USC spouse will then submit the I-864 and you will fill out the DS-260. Then, it will be forwarded to the embassy in where you live and you will be contacted for an interview in Singapore at the last stage. Please read the guides on the CR-1 process.


Our CR1 Journey So Far:
 

USCIS Stage:

  • Feb 8 2019: Sent package
  • Feb 14 2019: Delivered
  • Feb 21 2019: NOA1 (PD Feb 14, 2019)
  • Assigned to Nebraska Service Center (yay... 🙄)
  • Waiting for: NOA2

Correct.  If things change in the next year or so, and you are no longer living in Singapore, the case can be transferred to Manila.

 

The term "apply for" get's misused a lot.  Just understand the difference between the petitioner "filing a petition" and what comes later is the beneficiary (foreign spouse, in this case) applying for a visa.  The I-130 is not a visa application.  USCIS doesn't issue visas.

 

The US Citizen is the primary person that needs to learn the process.
