Wait period between interview & Visa (Canada, Montreal)

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

I was wondering what the average wait time was between a successful interview and the receipt of your visa. The page for the Montreal Embassy on VJ says:

Montreal now uses DHL to send your passport and visa back. No need to get the Xpresspost envelope that was previously required. When packet 3 arrives you will be instructed to register for DHL. You will pick the nearest location to you from a drop down menu. The waiting period varies.

Knowing that it varies, would anyone be able to give me some insight as to an average, or a likely maximum? Any data at all is really helpful.

Thank you!

It's been 5 weeks since I was approved at my interview and the consulate still has my passport. I've seen people on VJ wait 12 weeks or more after a successful interview, while others have their passports back within 10 days. I hope you get yours back quickly after your interview, but save yourself any potential headaches by not making any plans to move before you actually have your visa in hand. Good luck!
