Any reason I couldn't fly within Canada right after the interview?

Husband and I would both like to attend the interview. Is it safe to book a flight out the same day of the interview? Would there be any reason we would have to stay behind?

Edit: Interview in Montreal, Canada

It usually takes 2-3 weeks to get the passport with visa back.

That is assuming a straight approval: there could easily be other delays.

In my State it varies by County but is nothing like that much.

YMMV

Nthing the people who are saying you won't have the visa yet.

Had my interview on the 6th of May. Just got my Loomis tracking number last night and it looks like I should have my visa in hand by Tuesday or so. Which will be a full week, or close to.

2011/2012: Decided we were a couple sometime in, but no possibility of being together due to being same sex couple.

Hi

I had my interview done in Montreal and got my passport back only 2 weeks later. I went back to the States with my nexus card during the waiting process. I don't think it's a good idea to book plane ticket for right after the interview

Oh my, I should have worded this better. My husband lives in Alberta. We meant would we be able to fly back to Alberta the same day of the interview. I did not realize they kept your passport. Will he be able to travel back to Alberta without it?

Ah yes, you should be able to fly within Canada the same day, assuming he has some sort of identification- drivers license or ID etc.

I think we should edit the title or main post to reflect "fly back to home within Canada, not leave the USA."
