How long is too long for packet 4, K1 Vancouver

Could anyone give an average wait time between faxing in the checklist and that biographical sheet (or whatever it's called), and receiving your interview date? I think we are still in a reasonable time frame since there was no mail Friday, Saturday, or Monday... but I'm just curious how long it generally takes in Vancouver.

The only info I'm finding is on Montreal, from searches. The only reason I wonder, is just because of the fact that it was faxed, and maybe it didn't make it. (Paranoid? Yes.)

We only faxed in on 3.25.10 so like I said, I don't think it's time to worry yet. But then for all I know, maybe it takes a month! I just saw on the K1 flowchart, one week. Thats what I was going by.

Also, it seems like, just from looking at timelines that interviews are like 4-6 weeks-ish from packet 4? Does that seem right? We put that our hopeful wedding was 7.22, and POE 6.1 (random answer, which I am sure is too early).

Our requested interview was the first available thursday (preferred), or the first available late wednesday.

Again, all I can find is talk of Montreal.

If I am missing a way to check these things for myself, please let me know and I'll do it.

Ours only took a week to get, and we got the date we asked for as well. Vancouver is pretty flexible for your interview date, so if you needed to change anything you can just email them. You should hear something soon, probably just delayed with the holiday. Good luck!

Remember you do have 6 months to use the visa, so I don't see what's so bad about getting it now then just not using it until you need to.

If you look at my timeline you'll see it's not very long at all. You can e-mail them to ask; they're really helpful and respond generally pretty quick.

Thanks everyone. I guess if we don't hear by Wednesday or Thursday we'll send off an email.

And there is nothing bad about getting it now! The sooner the better! :)

I called DOS two days after faxing back the checklist to Vancouver and DOS was able to confirm my interview date. It took almost two weeks to get the actual letter in the mail though.

And there is nothing wrong with wanting to get the interview squared away sooner than later! Always plan for the worst but hope for the best. It gives you a little bit of leeway especially if you have a wedding date planned and I was scared of AP. I waited about 4 months to POE after I got the visa for wedding date & professional reasons.

Totally understand the paranoia about them not receiving fax. After I faxed in my packet 3 checklist I emailed them to ask them for confirmation that they had received my faxes. Not only did I get the confirmation that they had received the faxes but they also told me my interview date and that I should expect a letter confirming the interview date in a week! My interview date is in May so about 5 weeks after sending in my packet 3 checklist.

Good luck!

Ours took nearly a month -- I know it was around Christmas holidays and the mail is slow but dang! The letter from the NVC took well over a month to get here from NH. Terrible!

I faxed in my check list to Vancouver on March 30th and just received my packet 4 (interview date) in the mail today and I live in BC (lower mainland). Hope this helps. Oops! Didn't read your post above. Congrats on your interview date!
