I was there for 2 1/2 hours last week but I was last in line, and they forgot about me after my interview. :lol: (Got sent to window 2 to await instructions for picking up the visa... and waited... and waited.) The lady was mortified when she realized I was there and ran off to get the visa so I wouldn't have to come back.

To echo what others have said: Vancouver's great! :luv: Everyone was very friendly, from the guards, to the lady who puts the documents in order, to the consular officer who does the interviews.

Good luck!

Vancouver is, as everyone has said, GREAT! Ophilia is the name of the lady taking your paperwork - she is stern, but if you are organized (which anyone on VJ is) she will love you! I was there for a total of 2.5 hours but i chatted with the others who were getting interviewed. I was interviewed last. The interviewer is really nice and it is nothing more than a chat. Really cool people there! Have fun! :thumbs:
