Embassy interview place

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, everyone,

My fiancee is Chinese citizen, but she is studying in Canada as foreign student. She has the legal study

visa till 2007. I am going to apply the K-1 visa for her. Can she interview in Canada? or she must go back to China and complete the interview? Anything I need to do when I submit the I-129F to request the interview in Canada? If she can interview in Canada, which embassy in Canada she should attend? She lives in Alberta. I hope anyone can give me the answer.

Thank you

As far as I'm concerned, the interview ALWAYS takes place in the country where the beneficiary is native from! So, she would have to come back to China to have her interview...

Hi, I am a bulgarian citizen currently residing in Ireland, working since 2003 with work permit and I am going to have my interview here in Ireland- I was told from my attorney my interview should be where I currently reside, i am not sure about students but i think it would be possible for your fiancee to have her interview in Canada. Take an advice from an attorney, but try a few and see the different opinions.

Oh, sorry, just to add, I know for sure that for B2 visitor visa the interview must be in her native country, of course she could try somewhere else also but the chances opf getting the visa are much smaller. Again- this is for B2, I am not sure about the K1 if she is only for short period in Canada on a student visa, but still my opinion is- most likely, yes, she could have the interview in Canada. Only opinion, I may be wrong.

As long as she has legal status in Canada, she can have her interview in Canada...

The consulate will ask for proof of her legal status before they will issue packet 3.

As per the I-129F......it uses the word 'resident'.........not native of. Ones country of residence is not necessarily ones native country.

My fiance and I are in the same situation, as he is an Albanian citizen in Italy as a student. On our petition, we requested to have the interview in Tirana, Albania, but the National Visa Center changed it on us and sent all his documentation to Naples. I called twice and e-mailed about this and everyone tells me the location of the interview is determined by the place where the person is currently living. So... your fiancee will likely have to do her interview in Canada, even if you request to have it in China.

Good luck!

Yes, I know about the diference... I just thought that it was obligatory to the beneficiary to have the interview in the country where he was born, but thanks God I can see now I was wrong! :yes:

Good luck, Alameda! :luv:
