Have you gotten a case number? if so email Montreal and ask them. They do not take phone calls.

You will be waiting quite a while with Montreal, they are slow and the only place that does Spousal Visas in Canada.

I have heard nothing, no case number, no nothing.

If you have no case number i'm not sure how you could contact them since they wouldn't know what to look up..

At that I could only suggest going to the consul that you dropped your papers to and asking in person W T F? and see what they say.

Ok, the Dept of State has no record of our I-130 application which either means Toronto never bothered to send it or Montreal never bothered to enter it. I'm guessing the latter because it sounds like Montreal is having problems above and beyond even their usual ones for the past month or two.

Sigh.

I'm assuming you are DCF'ing. You could email Toronto and and Montreal, more than likely they may know nothing, but doesnt hurt to try! Quite often you have to email them numerous time to get a reply. Can also check out the DCF forum on VJ--maybe they have better ideas


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

I guess your payment wasn't cashed? or well I hope it hasn't been.

Have you tried this number?

Consulate General of the United States of America

360 University Avenue, Toronto, Ontario M5G 1S4 Canada

Tel: 416.595.1700 Fax: 416.595.1090

edit to add this =

Visa Inquiries: 8:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

Maybe thats why you cant get through on your 900 number?

Not sure if you can use that one.

Toronto has responded to my email... it went out to Montreal the same day we submitted it. The issue is definitely with Montreal and is definitely extraordinary. I am not looking forward to the process of getting through to Montreal.

Yes other Americans have! And some have had success while others not. All 1 can do is try. It should be a very easy call for a congress person to make to get some answers. Squeeky wheel gets the grease!! Try putting something catchy in ur email heading to Montreal! make it very obvious to what you want and keep emailing
