Visa Interview Scheduled - Passport expires a few months after

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I apologize in advance if this is a topic that already been posted.

I'm new here.

I'm a Canadian citizen

My wife is an American citizen

I have my visa interview in the 3rd week of January 2014

My passport expires in March 2014

Should I renew my passport before I go to the interview?

Providing I am issued a visa, is it a stamp based visa on the physical passport?

If it is, this is where I think I should renew my passport.

Has anyone had any similar experiences?

Thank you all in advance.

most guidelines state you must have at least 6 months remaining on yer passport at the time of interview.

Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !
Ya know, you can find the answer to your question with the advanced search tool, when using a PC? Ditch the handphone, come back later on a PC, and try again.

You have to renew. Bring the old passport to the interview as well.

Montreal will want a passport that 6 months or more on the passport at time of interview. I suggest renewing NOW, as it can take up to 6 weeks to get it back (most often takes 3, even through a service Canada location but can take 6.) Beyond this, it's a great deal more expensive to renew when you're in the USA than if you're in Canada. I suggest getting the 10 year passport unless you plan on getting citizenship in the next 3 years. Bring both passports to your interview as apple21 said.
