No updates so far on the old app. I submitted priority processing using web form to NY and LA.. and NY request has been forwarded to Delhi office. so may be it’s processing in India . Not sure.. it’s confusing.. I just got a standard response from Delhi office acknowledging the enquiry..We are in the same dilemma. The old forms did mention if we are applying from another country than the country of residence. As per US laws the country of residence doesn't change unless we stay in the US till 180 days so considering that they are still Indian residents hence the country of residence should be India and so their residential address shouldn't change. Now the only option on the portal is mailing address but there is nothing else I see which would highlight their presence in the US. Also, with the old GCKey we had to provide a letter of explanation why they are not applying from India, how to fill that requirement or whether we have to?
Any updates on your end?
I mentioned detailed explanation of why there are in US. Also gave I-94 as proof. They now submitted for US stay extension since they are still waiting for the Canada visa..
May be I will wait till they complete 180 days stay and then re-submit with US address..
