Hello,

 

I just received instruction from USCIS that our case has been moved to NVC, and been sent all the login details from the Department of State.

 

The issue now is that I live in the UK at the moment and would like to transfer our case to the US embassy in London, but I don't know how to go about it. I would appreciate it if anybody knew how to transfer from one embassy to another at the NVC stage. Thank you so much in anticipation.

Will you be in the UK for the next 6+ months?

 

If so, then email NVC and ask them to change the embassy. I believe nowadays it starts with an inquiry form.

You just fill in the DS-260 with your current UK residence address.  In addition, you can email them.

Yes, I live and work in the UK now until I move to the US with my husband.

 

I read somewhere about the enquiry form, but I couldn't find it anywhere. Anyways, thank you so much for your response; it is appreciated.

Instructions can be found here:

https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/immigrate/national-visa-center/immigrant-visas-processing-general-faqs.html#ivp13

  • If your petition is being processed at the National Visa Center (NVC), contact the NVC to request the transfer.  NVC will transfer cases to another IV processing post if parties provide a written request along with the address in the requested country and the proof of eligibility (citizenship/legal residency in the requested country or other documentation). This can be provided at https://nvc.state.gov/inquiry.  In limited circumstances, NVC may need to contact you for additional eligibility requirements.  Note that transferring your case might not result in immediate processing as cases are processed in order based on the date the case became documentarily qualified. 

Make sure you provide PROOF you reside in the UK. Proof of address, residency card (if the UK has them), stamps in passport etc...
