Immigrant Visa I-130 Petitions

UPDATE: As of March 17, 2020, the United States Embassy in London has suspended all immigrant and fiancé(e) visa and petition processing.

We are therefore unable to accept any petition filing until we return to routine services. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide a specific date at this time.

If you have a visa interview appointment scheduled, the Visa Appointment Service will contact you if your appointment is being postponed.

As of April 1, 2020, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) field office in London has ceased accepting I-130 petitions from U.S. Citizens living or stationed abroad. USCIS has also delegated authority to DOS/U.S. Embassy in London to accept and adjudicate Form I-130 filed by a U.S. citizen petitioner for an immediate relative if the petitioner establishes exceptional circumstances or falls under blanket authorization criteria defined by USCIS.

If you are able to establish exceptional circumstances, please check back once normal consular operations resume for further guidance. Alternatively, please check the USCIS website for other offices accepting the I-130 petitions in the United States
