Hey There,

We did DCF in Toronto for IR-1/CR-1 and are waiting to receive approval and packet 3 from Montreal. I was hoping to find some others to wait and share/swap info and experiences with.

I'm going for an IR-1, DCF through Toronto. We are at the last steps of our journey, interview scheduled for July 12. I would have to say that I'm a little bit disappointed in the whole DCF process so far, thought it would be MUCH faster than the 11 months from submitting the 130 to interview date. By the time you add in getting our passports back and doing our POE, it will probably be over a year! I know it's Montreal, other consulates have gone much faster with DCF.

Hopefully you will go much faster than I have! I was delayed slightly when I sent in my packet 3. They claim they didn't get my checklist, but I know I sent it! That put me behind a few weeks but still shouldn't have taken this long. :wacko:

I think we might be the only ones right now!!! You could try calling the DOS and see if you can schedule your interview appt now, that's what I did (but the letter then showed up in the mail 2 days later anyway, LOL). I can't remember the number but if you use the search function within the boards, it will be there somewhere. The sooner the better because I think they are already in September for interviews now.
