Montreal VS. Vancouver

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi All

I just joined visa jouney today. My husband and I have filed an I-130 and it has been approved. We are now at the next step with he AOS. I am living in Alberta and moving to the US for my husband. I automatically assumed that my interview would be in Vancouver considering it is so much closer to me than Montreal. I realized that my case number starts with MTL which means Montreal. I am so frusturated about this because Vanouver is a 1 hour, cheaper flight. I had already been looking into Vanouver and where I was going to stay and get my medical done. There has now been a curve ball throw into my plans and I will have to take more time off work, fly a full day to montreal and spend approx 1000$ more dollars!!! Does anyone know if it is possible to pick which consulte you want to go to for your interview based on convenience and why would they pick Montreal for someone living in Alberta!!

No, this is not possible. You're applying for an IR-1/CR-1 visa and the only consulate/embassy in Canada that processes those visas is Montreal. Unfortunately, you have no choice but to go to Montreal for your interview.
