Canadian Fiance(s)

What does the typical timeline look like for a Canadian fiance(e)? We are just about to send our I-129F in and was wondering how long we have to wait. I've read that typically, on average, it takes 6-9 months for everyone. I was just wondering if maybe Canadian cases go a little faster?

Anyone care to share? It would be much appreciated =)

Depends on where you're filing. and everyone is different.

Somehow, homeland security thinks that we canadians are a potential threat and give us the same attention as those from unfriendly countries.

I'd say that for Canadians, the process depends a lot more on which Center in the U.S. your application is going through; which is to say, it has more to do with where the U.S. citizen lives. The process of getting your NOA2 varies drastically based on that.

After your NOA2 is processed, your application gets sent to the National Visa Center, and then to one of the two American consulates in Canada; that part of the process is more consistent for all Canadian cases. You can see the latest stats on that here: http://www.visajourney.com/timeline/stats.php

I dont think its really your nationality that speeds up your process, but i do think they have a bit more leniency towards us. It's easier for us to visit our fiance(e)'s, to call them, its easier for us to prove we have a relationship since we are just next door. Also, depends on your case, if its simple or not. Anyway, before i start rambling, good luck on your journey! lol :thumbs:

Luckily, CSC seems to be speeding up, but based on current stats, I'd say you've got about a 3 month wait in California, then another 72 days (or 2.5 months) before the interview and the visa being granted. That's assuming no requests for evidence or administrative reviews. But that's purely speculation on my part. The stats change over time.

Good luck in the process!

Well

I think the time is the same to Canadians, or Brazilians, or whatever.

It does not depend the nationality of your fiance, and if it depends, sorry but it is a big #$@# because everybody here wants the same thing and are going through the same problems...

But if you look at the processing time, you'll see vermont looks like the faster process and california the slowest.

Well. i wish you good luck with your canadian fiance, and i hope you process goes fast and fast!!!

We filed in mid august and I got my visa at the end of January. We went through the Texas centre (very slow) and the Vancouver consulate (great). Good luck with all.

5 months or so.. not bad. I think CSC has slowed down though.. so I am expecting 6-7 months (assuming that all goes well).. ah well, what can you do.
