Embassy question

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi. I am the future beneficiary of K1 visa. I will be flying to Japan on January on a work visa to start my new job. I was told that the interview at the US embassy has to be conducted in my country of residence. Does this mean the country where I legally reside, or country where I have permanent residence? I know those are two different things, and I ask because I won't have permanent residence in Japan. I am just trying to be aware of all the nuances so that we can be on the safe side. Thank you for your help, and sorry if it seems like a silly question.​

I had US Embassy Manila as my assigned consulate in the beginning of the process since I thought I have to indicate my country of birth during filing as my residence but eventually asked for transfer to Singapore Embassy since I work here and have a valid working visa. I sent it as proof to move the process here. So if you have valid work visa then put Japan as your residence.All the best!
