My newborn daughter and I are USC, and my wife is non-USC. We're living in China. 

 

There is an urgent medical reason which is requiring my family and I to move to the US. I would like to apply for an IR1 visa for my wife, via DCF

 

I have reached out to the consulate in Guangzhou, our local consulate, and they informed me to submit my request via this link: 

https://china.usembassy-china.org.cn/visas/immigrant-visas/contact-us/immigrant-visa-unit-question/

 

In this link I am given 280 characters to explain our situation. 

 

After explaining, I receive the following response:

Quote

Dear Petitioner,

 

Thank you for your inquiry.  If you would like to ask Consulate Guangzhou’s Immigrant Visa Unit to accept an I-130 for direct filing in Guangzhou, please respond with detailed information about your situation and the background of your petition, why you would like to file directly with the Consulate, and why you are unable to file with USCIS in the United States.  A consular officer will evaluate your request and respond. 

 

Sincerely,

 

Immigrant Visa Unit

U.S. Consulate General Guangzhou

I responded to the email, and received an automatic reply telling me not to reply to the above email. The body of the message tells me to respond, but the signature tells me don't respond. 

 

I then messaged the consulate via WeChat, asking them what do I put in lieu of a case number, since I don't have any case created yet. (I am trying to get in contact with a consular official to obtain a case number). 

 

They tell me to just put '0'. 

 

So, using 280 characters, I answer the questions asked in the above email reply. 

 

I just received the following response:

Dear applicant,

 

Thank you for your inquiry.  We need a case number to search our records.  A case number should be a ten-digit number that starts with "GUZ" or "GZO".  Please re-submit your inquiry with the correct case number using the web form at https://china.usembassy-china.org.cn/visas/immigrant-visas/contact-us/immigrant-visa-unit-question/.

 

 

Sincerely,

How do I get in contact with my consulate to make this request? 

 

I called the emergency phone number, and was told that the number is only for US citizens, and they can't help with visas. But our medical situation relates to our newborn daughter who can't be away from her mother. I am really not sure what to do.

How urgent is her medical situation?  DCF is not instant...

 

--

Did you get a US Passport/report her birth to the consulate for your daughter? That's something you can start working on while you are waiting for an answer on the DCF.

B2 medical maybe a better bet.
