Consulate Review: Montreal, Canada

Event Description
Review Date : April 17, 2013
Embassy Review : Had my interview yesterday morning. Arrived at 6:50am. Two other couples were ahead of me. We were let in at 7:30am. Security was similar to the airport. The security staff were efficient. Every thing went as described in previous reviews, smooth and efficient. Was out within an hour. 50 minutes of waiting and 10 minutes of interaction. I'm pleased to have come to the end of my journey but I'm still dumb founded when I think about how vague the whole process was and the amount of time it's taken. After 10 months I finally get to move into a home that I've owned for 10 months and never seen. I get to wake up with my family next to me. All the best to everyone at VJ. The sight gave me sanity when I thought I was losing my mind.
Rating : Very Good

*Notice about estimates: The estimates are based off averages of other members recent experiences
(documented in their timelines) for the same benefit/petition/application at the same filing location.
Individual results may vary as every case is not always 'average'. Past performance does not necessarily
predict future results. The 'as early as date' may change over time based on current reported processing
times from members. There have historically been cases where a benefit/petition/application processing
briefly slows down or stops and this can not be predicted. Use these dates as reference only and do not
rely on them for planning. As always you should check the USCIS processing times to see if your application
is past due.

** Not all cases are transfered
