K1 visa moving case from one embassy to another

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey! I got a job offer in Barcelona for a 6 month contract that starts in 2 weeks 
I am French and currently living in France, that’s why I was supposed to get the interview in Paris at first. However, Paris has a crazy backlog regarding the interviews for the K1 visa... so I was thinking since I’ll become a legal resident in Spain to get my file transferred over there for the interview 
Has anybody in this group ever experienced the same situation? Or experienced a file transfer? Thanks a lot

My fiancé is a Venezuelan citizen. She holds a Venezuelan passport.  She lives in Panama and is a legal resident. 

 

We have requested her interview to be in Panamá. 

 

If the beneficiary is in another country as a legal resident, there shouldn’t be a problem, as long as the correct consulate is listed on the I-120 F petition.

Thank you for your answer :) I am sorry but what is the I-120F petition?

If you wish to have your immigrant/fiancée visa file transferred from one Embassy to another U.S. Embassy/Consulate, please contact the appropriate U.S. Embassy/Consulate directly in the country where you wish to apply and follow their instructions for case transfer. Please click here for the full list of all U.S. Embassies and Consulates overseas.

 

The old Embassy will need to receive a formal file transfer request from that U.S. Embassy/Consulate in the country where you wish to apply. Upon receipt of this request, they will immediately forward the file for the New Embassy to process. (Expect up to a 30 day delay)

 

Once you contact your New Embassy you then can discuss the transfer of your fee if you have paid it prior to the decision of transferring your case to your new embassy. Be sure to have your payment receipt available.

 

If your case goes from embassy to embassy then NO you don't get a new case number. The case number will began with original alpha nomenclature ie. AAAXXXXXXXXXX. If her case comes from NVC then you will have a case number starting with the embassy that you will interview in. To make your payment using your old embassy's case number you establish your profile with that case number then you link your payment to your profile.

I would actually like to transfer it from NVC to the new embassy 

I haven’t got NOA2 yet! How long would be the delay from NVC?

My file isn’t at NVC yet, will they accept my request? Or should we wait that our file gets to NVC to inquire?

Also do we need to get the approval for the new embassy before inquiring?

When its at NVC, NVC has jurisdiction as to where it goes. Call to see how they would like to transfer your case.

They don't know anything about you until the file arrives.   Fairly soon after your approval is about when you should make contact
