Requesting another consultate on form 1289F

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I submitted this in the embassy discussion, but didn't hear back so i thought i would see if anyone here had any experience....Has any tried to request going through another embassy other than the one that is located in your fiance's home country?

My fiance will be working abroad in Canada and i don't know if it's possible to list the embassy in Canada or the Consulate General in Quebec as the place where he would have his interview. It would obviously be more convenient for him to be able to go through the embassy in Canada than to fly back to France for an intervew. I know there's still a long time before we should be thinking about an interview, but i'm just curious

In the I-129F form in Part B question #20, it seems like you can list another embassy outside of the country of citizenship for the fiance. It's up to the post to decide if they'll accept the application. Has anyone tried this? Is it worth asking to change or will they most likely make my fiance go through his previous country of residence France (country of citizenship) for the interview?

Thanks for any ideas,

-Sara

If he is a legal resident of Canada for at least 6 months, he should be able to use the Consulate located in Montreal.;


I finally got rid of the never ending money drain. I called the plumber, and got the problem fixed. I wish her the best.

For certain he must be a legal resident (not sure if 6 mos. is correct but just might be) and possibly Montreal or Vancouver consulate will accept


YMMV

What did you find out? Or did you just put down the other Consulate on the application. I don't know for sure, but I'd think the 6 month rule would apply for residency, and that would allow him to have the interview in Canada. Depending on where he'd be in Canada, the interview would either be at Vancouver (for west of Ontario residency) or Montreal (Ontario and east). It would be nice if you could get up there at that time for the interview as well!
