Newbie here, but on the long journey. MTL K1

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello!

I'm a Canadian from London, Ontario and I have begun this long journey with my fiancee from Louisville, KY in Febuary of this year. We met online as friends in '03/'04, met in Sept '11 in real life, got engaged October '13. We went through a lawyer to help with the beginning and some of the further along information that is required. Fast forward to November, I received and filed my Packet 3, a week later I received my Packet 4 email. I'm currently stressing out as the planned wedding date is March 13, 2015, and since Montreal is the closest consulate, trying to schedule an appointment through CSC is highest of my priorities. Which is where my problem lies, Montreal seems to be really backed up, as I have not seen any new appointment openings in order to pay/set up my Loomis mailing info and all that fun stuff. I've checked Vancouver's consulate and they constantly have openings, but the trip to there would be monstrously more costly than the 8 hour (car) to 12 hour (bus) trip to Montreal.

Further info, received the Packet 4 on Nov 20th. At this point I'm wondering if this is normal, should I be worried about my time constraints with the preplanned (and mostly paid for) wedding, and how long of a wait was it for you other fun K1 visas to get a Montreal schedule?

Thanks for any/all help.

I did the spousal visa so I'm not up to date on wait times at Montreal. I know that it is based on geography so going to Vancouver is not an option. You'll really want to post this in the Canada regional forum for best answers

good luck

Hi Jamm,

I am exactly in the same position than you. I received the Packet 4 on November 19th and since I am trying to schedule an interview with the US consulate of Montreal...

I already sent them an email to ask them when might new appointment availabilities show up but basically they just told me that: "The calendar is reviewed several times per month, and additional appointment slots may be added as available visa numbers change. If there are no appointments available, applicants are requested to re-try regularly, as it is likely additional appointment slots will be opened." and that was last week but still nothing... :(

Also I am a little bit anxious cause we planned to get married by the beginning of April with my Fiancée but before that we planned to go to France by the beginning of March to visit my family (I am living here in Canada but come from France)...

That is so unfair when you know that Vancouver has plenty of availabilities...

Anyway as Jimm asked it; does anyone know how long it might take to get your interview starting the moment you actually try to schedule one here in Montreal?

Thanks a lot everyone! :)
