Can one go to the fiance visa interview in another country?

Asked 8 months ago - Houston, TX

My friend is residing in Canada, but she is a Brazilian citizen. Can she go to the interview in Canada? If yes, does this mean that she has to live in Canada legally in order to do so? Thanks!

    Answered . Your fiancé can apply for the K-1 visa in the Montréal only if she's a "landed immigrant"in Canada, i.e. has the legal right to reside in Canada or is there in any valid non-immigrant status, except tourist. Otherwise she will need to have that interview at the US Consulate in Brazil.
