NVC screwed up - can I try to contact the Montreal consulate directly?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My situation is this: My daughter and I are both applying for our immigrant visas (separate applications). Daughter is 2 years old. My application took a lot longer for NVC to process than hers, so NVC put her application on courtesy hold so that we could have the same interview date in Montreal. When my application was complete, they forgot about taking hers off courtesy hold, and now I have my interview date (Sept 22) and my daughter does not.

Daughter's application is now off hold and waiting for an available date, which I assume will be AFTER Sept 22 since it was received later. I got instructions from NVC to send an email to NVCexpedite requesting daughter's interview date be the same as mine, and that they would forward that on to the Montreal Consulate.

Two questions:

1) how long does it take NVC to read expedite emails?

2) Can I somehow contact the Montreal Consulate directly, to request her interview date be moved up to my date, as she is only 2 years old?

I don't know how long NVCexpedite is going to take to read the email, and meanwhile I have medical exams to schedule and plane tickets to book, so this is pretty urgent!

As far as has been seen on here, your best way is to contact them through the email address they provided - Sept 22 is a month away. You list yourself as a K3, is your daughter not part of that petition?

Oh, I just updated my timeline. No, like everyone else, K3 didn't work. I am an IR. We had to apply for our daughter on a separate petition.

The thing is, if they set a later date for our daughter and deny the request to move her date up to mine, then I would probably try to move my date back to coincide with her later date, so we can all go to Montreal together. I don't know yet though, and I need time to have my physical exam and to book plane tickets. If this NVCexpedite request process takes, say, 2 weeks, then that is cutting it really close, because I still have to book my physical and also a flight, whose tickets might rise in price considerably if they are on such short notice.

I guess there's nothing more to do then, than wait. If anyone has other ideas, I am all ears!

Good to know that emailing NVCexpedite is the way to go. Do you know how long they will take, and also any guesses on what my chances are of having my 2 year old moved forward up to my date?
