Immigrant Visa I-130 Petitions

UPDATE: Beginning July 27, 2020, the United States Embassy in London is slowly increasing capacity for immigrant visa petition processing.

We have a limited capacity to accept petitions until we return to routine services. Processing may take longer than usual.

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 stopped accepting new I-130s.

Individuals who were previously assisted by USCIS London must follow the new filing instructions listed on the USCIS website. All public inquiries should be directed to the USCIS contact center.

Form I-130 Filing Instructions and Appointment Scheduling

You may file your petition by mail with the USCIS Dallas Lockbox or online using the USCIS website. You can find additional filing information on the Form I-130 webpage.

If you are a U.S. citizen, the Department of State may accept a petition from you if you are filing for your immediate relative (spouse, unmarried child under the age of 21, or parent (if you are 21 years of age or older)) at a U.S. embassy or consulate in certain limited circumstances, as described in the USCIS Policy Manual, Volume 6, Part B, Chapter 3.

U.S. military members stationed in the UK, may file for their immediate relative(s) without the need to
establish exceptional circumstances. Please complete and submit this contact form for consideration.

If you have reviewed the exceptional circumstances and believe you qualify, please complete and submit this contact form for consideration. If a consular officer at the U.S. Embassy concurs with your request for exceptional circumstance processing in accordance with USCIS guidelines, you will be contacted to advise you further
