Hey guys!

I'm not being able to schedule my interview even though its been over 3 weeks since I received packet 4. As the email said I went to this address > http://canada.usvisa-info.com/ < and tried to book it. It says currently no appointment available every time I try! Is that normal? My location would be the Montreal consulate. I haven't booked a medical appointment yet because I thought I need my interview date to book a medical appointment. Is that right? Please help. Thank you

You have to pay the fee first, then it allows you to pick dates from a calendar. It should register that you received p4. Then it will allow you to book interview, if this doesn't work, there is a number you can call to book on the phone and pay fee.

The phone number is 438-793-1947 press 1 then 3

Hope this helps

yes i have the same question for Montreal, we paid and it still won't allow to schedule an interview. Does it take a few business days to recognize the payment ? We got packet 4 today. tried calling the number to and the lady said nothing was available .

Hi! Thank you for replying. I tried to pay the fee and it says there are no appointments available. I'll call them and try to do it over the phone. Just wondering if you know usually how long does it take to get an appointment if they're unavailable. Is it common for them to be this busy? I'm just curious.

That's really weird right after I paid it took me to the next step to pick an appt date.....maybe they ran out of appt spots or something. When I booked for oct 30, the next appt date after that was nearing the end of November. I wish I had more advice but to keep calling them bc you should have been able to book right away, my credit card processed right away.

When did you book for OCT 30th? how long after receving packet 4 did you pay/book ?

We have paid and there is nothing and the people on the phonw are as usless as can be when giving us info.

I got packet 4 October 7th, and booked appointment that same day for oct 30th, the calendar showed no other appt times after oct 30th until the end of November.

I paid the fees for the kids and I it have us a receipt and then it said to click here to book appointment date and time. I had no clue what I was doing the computer was promoting me. Wish I was more help if calling doesn't wirk I'm not sure. Also I was planning on adding my fisnce to come to appt.....I added him and his passport, it wouldn't let me book with him added, so I removed his name....and then magically I could book the date and time. Not sure if it's that or not

One more thought...did you select a Loomis location? I had to select that first before I could get an appt, did you get a receipt for fees paid the $265?? Just trying to figure out why you can't book unless they are fully booked through December which I highly doubt

HI All,

Re: booking an appointment - Where is the page that asks me to pay? I'm on the page where there is no green CONTINUE button (an indication that there are no appointments available).

Thanks for all your help.
