We are currently waiting for my husband's visa date to become current. We might have made the mistake of listing his country of nationality rather than the country he lives and works in for the visa interview. We are wondering when is the right time and how to request a change of interview location. Will this delay the process?
A visa applicant may change choice of US Consul when NVC requests documentation for the immigrant visa interview.
Is my answer "BEST ANSWER" and/or "HELPFUL"? If so, please acknowledge and mark it so. Mr. Smith has 25 years of successful U.S. immigration law experience with cases just like yours. Still, his response is general in nature, as all the facts are unknown to him, and cannot be construed as legal advice. Please retain immigration counsel to analyze your particular situation in order to receive specific advice. Specific answers requires knowledge of all the pertinent facts of your case. Any answers offered by Mr. Smith on Avvo are of a general nature only, and does not create an attorney-client relationship.
When your husband's priority date becomes current, NVC will notify you and will request payment of the visa application fees. They will assign a case number that will begin with 3 letters. The 3 letters designate the consulate where the case has been assigned. As soon as you have that case number, you can contact NVC and request a change of consulate. It usually take a couple of weeks to get a new case number for the new consulate.
