Montreal interview help - Tuesday

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone I am traveling to Montreal tonight as my interview is at 7:40am tomorrow morning.

I remember there was a post that someone had drawn out a map of where to stand and where to go once inside the building.

For some reason I can find that post.

If someone could link it for me that would be great. I am staying at the Best Western tonight and planning on walking in the morning to my interview.

That would be Saylin's post. http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/359761-montreal-consulate-picturesmaps/

I don't think it's as important to be in the right place now. They seem to assign numbers before you get to the elevator.

Good luck tomorrow. I'll be there too. I've got an 8.30 interview. Maybe see you there.

I'd say Saylin's post still applies, except you don't have to worry about lining up once you get upstairs because you are given a number as soon as you get in the building. The layout upstairs is no longer as her drawing shows, but you don't have to line up and you will be directed where to sit. This post shows the updated layout on the 19th floor: http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/359761-montreal-consulate-picturesmaps/?p=5817669
