Switching consulates Montreal -> Vancouver

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: K-1 Visa Country: Canada

We were just issued our NOA2 and are at the NVC stage in our application. I realized it would be much more preferable to have our documents sent to Vancouver over Montreal. I have sent an email to NVC, as well as the Vancouver and Montreal consulates. Outside of the I-824 (6months) is there an easy way to get this switched over?

I live in Ontario and wanted to have our interview in Vancouver. We were told we live too far away. You need a mailing address within a certain area of the Vancouver Consulate.

I would have loved to have my interview in Vancouver, 1) they're faster and 2) I have 2 children living there, but as the others stated I live in Ontario and am out of their zone. Maybe I should have moved to Winnipeg during this process :blush:

If you have a friend or relative that lives in western Canada, you can use their address and have your case moved to Vancouver. It is not the 'proper' way to go about it but people have done it. I tried doing this but by the time they got around to answering my e-mail my interview had been scheduled.
