I'm Peruvian, and all the appointments for a US visitor visa in the embassy here in Peru have been taken, and I heard there are no more available dates until mid-2024.

Is it possible that I can apply in another country? Because of the situation in the country, I don't think they will open more slots for this year and I was wondering if I could get an interview outside of Peru.

I've never applied before for a USA visitor visa, I can wait, but if I manage to get an appointment for the next year I don't know what they will expect from me after a year in the interview.

Yes, you can apply outside of your country of residence. See the text below from the US State Dept. :

You should schedule an appointment for your visa interview at the U.S. Embassy or Consulate in the country where you live. You may schedule your interview at another U.S. Embassy or Consulate, but be aware that it may be more difficult to qualify for a visa outside of the country where you live.
