Montreal Update

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello there. My fiancee called Montreal and the woman was very helpful. She said they're booking interviews for December and those people are July/August. Needless to say, we don't have an interview date yet :crying: and don't know when. This stinks because we were hoping for the December wedding date. She'll call again next week because that's when my vacation requests are due for the following year. It's hard to even think about that now. :bonk:

Hang loose jg. The government has always been predictable in their unpredictability. And people here have gotten tons of conflicting information from the misinformation lines. Just let go of any definite dates for a wedding. Get married when you can!

Thanks jerseygirl for the encouragement. We've decided to all but give up our wedding date and we would be happy with any date at this point. We're going to call and ask if they can guesstimate with the emphasis on having to have my vacation requests for next year in at the end of the week. Again, we don't care about when at this point, we would just like any date.

Boboroad has a CR-1/IR-1 visa. Are appointments issued based on what kind of visa you apply for?

Montreal doesnt schedule the cr-1, NVC does. Mtl doesnt even know you exist (cr-1/ir-1) until NVC schedules the interview, so I assume MTL sets aside a certain # of Cr-1/ir-1 slot each month.


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
