Fiance living in country that is not her "home country"

Hello, my fiance and I are planning to get married in the States. I am a citizen of the US and she is an Indonesian national that is currently legally residing and working in Shanghai China.

As we fill out the paper work we are wondering if the documents will be processed and sent to the Beijing visa center or her home country (i.e. background check is done in Indonesia or China, interview in Indonesia or China)?

In the spirit of full disclosure we want to have all of her information as current as possible (i.e. Shanghai address), but were wondering if this may cause a delay or rejection as she is an Indonesian national.

Any advice or experiences would be greatly appreciated. :thumbs:

If she is a legal resident of China at the time of petition approval, her approved petition would be sent to the consulate in China. I do not believe this will cause any delay other than what may exist between different consulates.

My Fiancee is in a country other than her "home country". She only needs a police certificate from her "home country" Other than that there is no problem with being in another country. As Gary and Alla said, as long as she is legal she will be fine. The one thing that we are dealing with now are the translation services. Your fiancee will have to have her paperwork translated into English. Her birth certificate and police report from Indonesia will need to be translated in China to English. Finding an official translator my prove a bit difficult.

Great, thanks everyone. She is a legal resident of China and should be throughout the entire process (China issues year long work permits).

We will actually be heading to Indo for her brothers wedding in September and plan to get all her documentation at that time (and get it translated by the official translator in Jakarta). Hopefully the State Dept in China will accept this documentation.
