Montreal Interview

For our interview...

Is it only me they will ask questions too or does he need to attend? We have been talking about costs and trying to decide to make a "vacation" out of it. If he does not need to be there I may just go and save 1000$

Thanks

In some countries the USA citizen is highly encouraged to attend, BUT that is NOT the case for Montreal! My wife didnt attend. Yes they did ask and I stated she had to work! many USA citizens do not attend the interview in Canada! Its normally very quick interview, 10 min if ur lucky!. At the top you see REVIEWS: Embassy/USCIS & POE--click on that and in the pull down men--select canada--lot of reviews


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

Thanks for letting me know. Probably wiser for just me to attend then and save the money. I was quite disappointed to learn that I had to travel all the way to Montreal when I am right next door to the Vancouver Embassy (we went there to file for my daughters birth abroad certificate)...
