With the impending adjustment of USCIS’s international footprint, USCIS is revising Form I-130, Petition for Alien Relative, processing roles abroad. This USCIS policy guidance addresses the limited circumstances in which USCIS has delegated authority to DOS to accept and adjudicate the Form I-130 filed abroad at U.S. embassies and consulates. This guidance is effective February 1, 2020, and applies to petitions filed on or after that date. Once effective, this policy will supersede the guidance found in Chapter 21.12 of the Adjudicator’s Field Manual (AFM), related AFM appendices, and related policy memoranda. Comments are due February 13, 2020.
Please see note on the USCIS forms page for I-130:
