Administrative Processing in Montreal

14 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, 

 

I had my interview in Montreal on August 1st. And they requested additional documents which have been sent within 24 hours. Case status then changed to AP on August 2nd. It is already over 60 days and no updates since then. Anyone else in the same boat?

Thats fairly uncommon for Montreal to be in AP that long, though it can certainly happen. Are you a Canadian citizen or permanent resident? What was the 221 for?

:time:

what Visa type?

are you a PR or citizen?

are you or any of your family previously from a high fraud country?

is domicile an issue?

AP frequently lasts at least 2+ months for Montreal if you had to send in evidence post interview.

@debbiedoo @NikLR  I'm a permanent residence in Canada. The 221g asked for my CV and master's transcript. They have not checked the domicile docs. Every time when my fiance sent an email query, they just replied with a fixed template.

Where are you originally from? What is your degree/ career?

China is known to be a high fraud country and I can see computer science being looked at by the DOHS.  

What's the Visa type?

K1 visa. I was quite surprised when the VO asked me to provide my master's transcript and CV during the interview because none of them were required documents in the checklist of K1 visa.

I'm not.  The US is a hot mess right now.  If it had been like this when I immigrated I would have said no way.  Sigh.

AP for almost four months now. I really want to get my passport back since it is an endless waiting. Does anyone have the experience of requesting passport from the consulate of Montreal during Administrative Processing?

One person did and it literally took them the entire AP process to get it.  But you can try. 

Im sorry it's taken so long.
