Visa Wait Times on web, vancouver vs montreal

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

The Visa wait times (typical wait for Visa Interview) posted on the Dept of State website, are those just inaccurate?

It shows Montreal as 34 days and Vancouver as 45 days

I thought it was more like 3-4 months for Montreal? and shorter for Vancouver.... :huh:

I believe those dates are for non-immigrant visas only. Like school visas and such.

Yeah I was looking at those too awhile ago and thinking they couldn't be right. And i finally figured out that they aren't. I guess when they say non immigrant they are referring to student or tourist visas. Even though K-3 visas are TECHNICALLY non immigrant they are not included by this time chart. As far as i know there is nowhere to check on embassy interview wait time frames for us. If somebody knows of where you can look please speak up!!!!!!! :)

They are refering to cases that are processed by non-immigrant visa units. Since K visas are processed by Immigrant visa units, those timelines would be inapplicable for K visas.
