Visa has been printed, but not mailed.

Today makes 2 weeks since Mathew has his interview in Montreal. He still hasn't received his visa. I called DOS just now to see if there had been any other updates other than the visa being printed(which I called and found out last week), and they lady I spoke to said that was all she was seeing but that usually there will be at least one additional update saying that the visa has been mailed back to the applicant.

So now I'm like :angry: because Mathew gets out of school in 2 weeks and will be going to visit his parents after that until he moves down on May 14th.

I hope that this is all just because of the Easter holiday, but I would have thought that since they printed the visa over a week ago(when I called last week the lady said it had been printed a few days prior) that they would have mailed it by now.

Grrr...guess I'll have to email Montreal and hope for a reply. :crying: :crying: :crying:

Ahhh that's annoying! You're probably right, the Easter weekend really slowed things down mail wise. Hopefully they'll send it out sometime today!

Easter weekend is 4 solid days of no mail in Canada...unlike here in the US.

I'm sure by the time school finishes and his travel roles around he'll have it in hand, but just in case, he sould have someone reliable checking the mail or have it forwarded.

I hope so because he's only got 2 more weeks in his apartment and then he'll be going to visit his parents in Rouyn-Noranda. He'll stay there until it's time to move to me. So basically if he doesn't get it in two weeks it's going to be a whole other battle trying to get it sent to his parents address and then worrying that it wont arrive!

This would be so much easier if they allowed those who live in or near Montreal to pick up their visas the next day. That way they could save on postage and have less of a backlog in mailing out the visas. But that would be in a perfect world. -_-

That's the problem. The child has lived in Montreal for almost 6 years and knows NO ONE that he would trust to do that. He hasn't made friends there. He basically goes to school, comes home, goes to work, comes home.

I think he may actually be moving out of his apartment when he goes to his parents house. He's talked about it, but if he doesn't get his visa in time he wont be able to.

Hang in there Kayla - you'll get good news soon I'm sure!

I remember back in December my fiancee was approved on 12/15/09 at the HCMC Vietnam consulate and we were told to return on 12/22/09 to pick up the visa. When we returned we were given a 221g!!! Imagine our dismay. We returned every week to the consulate as they sorted out an error on thier end. We were told we were approved in the system and they were trying to get it fixed.

Next week - no news :unsure:

Next week - no news :wacko:

Next week - finally - the girl told me she had great news and the visa was printed

I jumped for joy - then asked - well can we have it!

Nope - please come back in one week - we have to assemble her packet and she needs to come in for instructions!! :bonk:

Fiinally on January 11th we went to the consulate and received her passport and visa.

Entered the US on 1/16/2010!

I feel your pain - but look at the bright side - its printed and Mathew will have it soon.

Hang in there and Best Wishes!!!!!

Hey Kayla*Matthew, I just got off the phone with DOS! Turns out, my visa was printed on the 31st but they are not sure whether it has been mailed out yet or not either!

KnR aka slider100

Well maybe they are just having a slow time getting the visas mailed out.

I've emailed them. Everybody cross your fingers that I get a reply. If they tell me anything useful, I'll report back.

I just hate playing this waiting game. But it's my life now, might as well accept it. :P

The visa still hasn't come. I had quite a scare yesterday when I called DoS and the girl told me she wasn't seeing that it was printed, and that it was still in process. And of course this was all 10 minutes until closing so each time I called back I would get her.

But I called again this morning and the lady I spoke to this time(I remember this ones voice and she's great) told me that the girl yesterday must have never hit the right button because on one screen it would always show pending, but that pending was for Adjustment of Status or something like that. She said that girl must not have known it was a fiance visa, but that it surely had been printed out and had been since the 24th.

So basically it's been printed and sitting there for two weeks. Montreal STILL hasn't written me back, although I've heard it can take up to 4 days. But should I write them again just in case it got lost in cyberspace??

Wow, I feel for you!

Yeah, I would write again, because I would be going crazy too!

About him having to move and not being able to pick up his mail: you can get it forwarded to another adress. Canada Post offers that service and you can tell them for how long you need any mail forwarded...

But you probably knew that, sorry if I'm rambling!

Good luck, keep us posted!!!
