Chicago, IL asked in Immigration Law for Illinois

Q: What happens when you file i129f and the beneficiary move to another country, can we transfer the case?

I filed for K1 visa august 2021 and since USCIS processing times keep increasing , my fiance is planning to go to Canada on a student visa so it will be easy for us to meet each other often. What happens to our i129f process when he move to Canada? He is originally from Sri Lanka.

A: Your husband may want to return to Sri Lanka for consular processing. It is challenging to transfer consular processing to Canada once the I-129F petition is filed and approved. The time frame for such transfers can prove frustrating to applicants.
