My Fiance and I were approved at the US Consulate in Montreal. I made travel arrangements to travel to the US over 2 weeks after interview date as I thought that would be ample time for my passport and visa to arrive at the Loomis branch I allocated. It's been 2 weeks, there is still no news of my passport having left the Consulate in Montreal. Has this happened to anyone? I just want to make sure I have successfully registered for Courier Service. When I log onto the CSC Visa website it states my Loomis Branch so I think that's sufficient? Still no WayBill Number though. Any help would be appreciated! Thank youuuu

When was your interview date? Mine was Feb 4th, I got my waybill # Feb 10th, passport was ready Feb 11th. You will probably get an email from Loomis when they pick up your passport. Did they interviewer tell you how long it would take? She told me 1-2 weeks, some people are told a few days, I think it all depends on how busy they are at that moment with processing visas.

Thanks guys, I just saw the responses to this thread. My interview was January 29th. It has now been over 3 weeks since my interview and still no sign of a visa. The CEAC website says my status is "Ready" and that was updated on Feb 13th. It is now a week since then and nothing has changed. I've called Loomis and they don't have it, they said they will call/email when they pick it up. I just don't understand what is taking so long :(

Yes, I was born in Canada. Everything was totally fine at my interview and the lady didn't even ask to see any of our evidence of relationship or anything she said it was all very good and approved me straight away. She said I should have it "next week" and that was a Wednesday :(

Thanks, already did, twice. And my lawyer did once as well. They haven't responded and it's been over a week. I guess this is just a waiting game now. I just don't understand how for some people it takes a few days and for others much longer. Especially since everything on our application was very smooth/ we have had no complications during this whole process. I guess we'll just keep waiting!

Thanks for your help guys and I'll be sure to let you know when I get it. Also, if anyone has any other suggestions please let me know :)

If you were not born in Canada...the wait can be up to 12 months.

Where are you getting this stat from?  We have our interview in December this year, and my spouse was born in a country other than Canada but moved to Canada when she was like 10 (she's a Canadian citizen).

It's been almost 4 years since I posted that...lol...and I haven't been following this site in about that long either.  Where did I come up with that?  Most likely from reading someone else's personal experience on this site, probably someone from a MENA nation who moved to Canada and where immigration didn't make a decision at the interview right away.  My wife has dual citizenship as well with another European country. They never asked anything about her other citizenship in the interview...in fact the interviewer seemed kinda bored and wasn't really paying attention, as if it had been approved before the interview.
