I do not know if you can marry someone at the Canadian embassy. I doubt it. Why would you want to? Why would you need to? A marriage that is legally performed anywhere in the United States is considered a legal marriage by the Canadian government and courts. Therefore, there is no reason to marry at the embassy. For information on how you get permanent resident status, you should consult the website of Citizenship and Immigration Canada: Unless of course if you are gay and lesbian and live somewhere in the US other than Massachusetts....

For how long can a Canadian Permanent Resident stay in Fiji?

A permanent resident of any other country whose still carrying a Fiji Passport can enter Fiji and stay in Fiji for as long as they want since "it" is still a Fijian citizen. Permanent Residents whose holding other countries password can stay in Fiji for a period of 3months and can be extended at any Immigration Office in Suva, or Lautoka.

Failure to show a "Permanent Residence Card" will have the traveller removed and isolated for questionning. The American Embassy is always noted on such matter as Fiji dont have a Canadian Embassy.

The best thing even if it not necessary is to get your marriage license validated, that is a seal (stamp) from the Canadian Embassy/Consulate in Nigeria. Anyway a valid marriage license will be enough, then the Canadian resident should be able to sponsor his/her spouse to get a permanent resident visa to live in Canada.

By renouncing your citizenship before a US embassy/ US consulate official.
