Fiance lives in one country, Poland ,that she is not a citizen but works and lives there. Will this effect where she gets her medical exam and interview? Anything else it could effect? She is Vietnamese. Just starting this process so I am a little worried if this will complicate things and what I can expect or what I can do to avoid any pitfalls.

Is she a legal resident of Poland?  And will she still be there when it comes time for her interview?  (6.5-8.5 months from filing).  If so, she can have her medical and her interview there in Poland.

How long has she been living and working in Poland?

She needs proof of working and living in Poland and she will be fine.

And take into consideration what @Jorgedig talked about.

She has been working for few years after college. I think full time since August 2016 at two different banks, So she can do everything in Poland and not have to go to Vietnam? She is not a legal resident yet. She would have to stay another 3 years I think. She went to college there for bachelor and masters. Then 2.5 years of work so far. She will be there till the end of the process.

I believe so.  Does she have documentation of her legal resident status in Poland?  She will need that.  She will also eventually need a police report from Viet Nam.  You will have to check on whether she can obtain that by mail vs in-person.

Ok yes was wondering about that as well. I will have to research the police report. But she is allowed to live in Poland as long as she is employed there. Kind of like a work Visa we have here in states. Once she is there for 10 years then she can get full residency. So not sure if that will affect the process of medical and interview. I was thinking of using some help just to get through this daunting process. I know many have did this on their own but little overwhelmed.

 

Thanks for your help!

Yes if she has "Residency" in Poland the process can be done there.   She will need a police certificate from Poland and Vietnam.

 

Our case was a spousal visa but holds true for K1 also.   I met my wife in Philippines, we married in Hong Kong.   I have Mexican Permanent Residency so she was given that too upon marriage.   We petitioned from Mexico and her interview and medical was there.  She needed the Filipino police report but not the Mexican since she was only there for 5 months.

So My fiance will only need a Vietnam police record not Poland even though she has been there for 7 years or so? I was thinking about getting married somewhere else but then it will be longer till we are together. I just am concerned of the issue of her living in Poland and if she will get her interview and medical in Poland since that is her residence now. She is not a Polish citizen but has legal right to work and live there. She held a job after her masters for 2.5 years.

She will need police certs from any country she's lived in for >6 months after age 16.
