Address: The U.S. Consulate General is located in downtown Montréal, at 1155 rue St-Alexandre, Montreal, Quebec, H3B 3Z1 (between Boulevard René Lévesque and Rue Ste-Catherine).

Please note that all visitors to the U.S. Consulate General in Montréal are screened by U.S. Consulate security prior to entry. Screening includes inspections via a walk-through metal detector, a hand-held metal detector and an x-ray machine for personal items.

The following items are prohibited inside the U.S. Consulate:

¾ Food and beverages;

¾ Weapons or tools;

¾ Briefcases, backpacks, luggage, or large purses;

¾ Electronic or recording equipment of any kind, including, but not limited to: laptop computers, cell phones, PDAs, audio and video players, and pagers;

¾ Oversized strollers;

¾ Nail files and nail polish.

The following persons may accompany a visa applicant during his or her visit to the Consulate:

¾ Interpreter: If you are not fluent in either English or French, a friend or family member may serve as translator.

¾ Special Needs Visitors: If you are elderly, disabled, or if the applicant is a minor child applying for a visa one person may accompany you.

¾ Attorney: Attorneys are not permitted to accompany applicants inside the Consulate.

¾ U.S. Citizens: A U.S. Citizen may accompany you.

After the interview

If your visa application is approved, we will put your visa in your passport and send the completed visa packet and passport to you by Loomis courier at no extra charge.

You must travel to the United States and apply for admission as a permanent resident within the visa’s validity period. If you currently reside in the U.S, on a non-immigrant visa, you may be able to pick up your passport with visa and visa packet in the afternoon of the next business day after your interview. Unless you need your passport for travel, you may return to your address in Canada on the day of your interview.

Do not make any travel arrangements to move to the United States, dispose of property or give up your job until a visa has been issued to you. A consular officer can make a decision regarding your visa application only after your formal application and all documents have been reviewed, and you have been personally interviewed by a consular officer.

Thank you for your cooperation. We look forward to seeing you at your appointment.

Sincerely,

Immigrant Visa Unit

U.S. Consulate General Montréal

My Canadian fiance received the same email, but we were wondering if this is the only way it was sent to him and therefore is what he needs to bring with him to the interview or if a hard copy was mailed (that we didn't seem to receive) that he is actually supposed to bring.

Did you get a hard copy mailed to you or just the email?
