K1 visa interview Montreal

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Would someone please tell me how long is the wait from the time the packet 3 forms are in the computer at the NVC Montreal for the interview date? I sent my Packet three in August and I rec'd an email from Operator to say that my documents are on file.

I am waiting for my interview and anxious and if any Canadians who would reply what type of questions they ask would be great! I am going to Cali to marry a US Citizen.

Thank you waiting for a reply.

Hi Chululu: I've done an analysis of all of the K1 MTL time lines and have found that as of the middle of July, there have been no interviews booked, except for one in which that letter was lost. Based on the fact that over the last two years, there seem to be a lot fewer interviews in September than usual, I've come to the conclusion that any P3s returned after the middle of July will probably have an October interview date. It looks like what usually happens is that letters are sent out mid month for interviews in the next month. So normally, if you sent your p3 back early August you should have gotten an interview in September, but like a number of us, you probably missed the cutoff for August interviews.

BTW, if you fill out your time line, it might help us get a better handle on when you might see the letter.

As well keep in mind only a SMALL fraction of visa applicants know about VJ!!


Canadians Visiting the USA while undergoing the visa process, my free advice:

1) Always tell the TRUTH. never lie to the POE officer

2) Be confident in ur replies

3) keep ur response short and to the point, don't tell ur life story!!

4) look the POE officer in the eye when speaking to them. They are looking for people lieing and have been trained to find them!

5) Pack light! No job resumes with you

6) Bring ties to Canada (letter from employer when ur expected back at work, lease, etc etc)

7) Always be polite, being rude isn't going to get ya anywhere, and could make things worse!!

8) Have a plan in case u do get denied (be polite) It wont harm ur visa application if ur denied,that is if ur polite and didn't lie! Refer to #1
