Hey everyone,

I was just wondering what Montreal will want us to bring to interview? I know they will send us a letter, but I am wanting

to have everything ready ahead of time, and I am so wanting to have my hubby back. I just hope everything goes well for us.

I needed 2 passport pictures (2x2 - now not everyone needed this, some got to use their ones submitted to NVC but certainly bring them), my expresspost envelope, an updated police check (mine was 9 months old and took one just in case they needed it, which they did - again not everyone needed one), my husbands recent pay stubs (again, not everyone needed this - I guess my adjudicator was having a bad day but depending on when you submitted your tax stuff to NVC, you may need updated 2009 tax info).

We also brought additional evidence of a relationship which was not needed but we went prepared just in case. Now, Cr-1 visas will not get a 'packet 3' in the mail like K visas so you should not expect one. Posting here to know what to bring was a good idea

Good luck :thumbs:
