do embassies, generally speaking, ask a person applying for a visa their PR of the country in which they're currently applying for a visa (i.e the country where the embassy is based) or an eventual other visa for the country in which they're currently, in order to verify their legal presence there?

Example: My name is A, I'm an Egyptian citizen living in France. Once I go to a US istitution there in order to apply for a visa (I assume my passport is totally empty) and once I showed that I have enough funds to sustain and provide for myself there, would they ask a french PR in order for myself to be eventually issued a visa or do they simply bother about their related country entry conditions?

EDIT: The question does not pertain this current coronavirus hysteria and if the question's too broad or general, restrict your answer to the US or UK embassies cases.

    Not possible to answer in general since it varies by country. Are you asking specifically about the USA?

  • The question's general, but for the sake of example, I might assume that I am.
