Got Interview Date, but cannot register on Montreal Website

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My CC date is Oct 17, 2018 and today I got the interview date - Jan 18, 2019. The email I received from the NVC asked me to go to the Montreal Consulate website and register myself. However, it keeps giving me the error that my appointment is not ready to be scheduled. Does anyone know of this error?

 

I emailed them about the error, but no clue what to do. How do I register for courier service to return my documents?

 

Also, does anyone have a list of documents that I need to take with me? Or point me to a website where this info is available. Not sure what to do. I have already booked my flights.

 

Thanks all.

You have to wait until you CEAC says "ready"  also you just register for courier services.  At no point should you be under any appointment scheduling.

I tried to register as per the link in the first reply to my thread. And that is where the error happened. If I selected the wrong option\, is there a way to correct it?

 

Also, on my CEAC login page, it says that the case is currently at Montreal.

Yes, this website is where the Montreal Consulate PDF document's "REGISTER" link eventually took me to, after I had signed up. And then I selected the option to register my appointment, and it kept giving me the message that the case number is not ready for scheduling. No option to register or to arrange passport courier service ever came up.

Sorry it makes it sound like you are but you' aren't.  select this one. 

 

I have received a Consular interview appointment date from the National Visa Center (NVC) or the Kentucky Consular Center (KCC) and I have been instructed to register my appointment on this site.

That's exactly what I did. I signed up, got a confirmation email that required me to activate my account. I logged back in and selected the exact same option that you have highlighted. And then I filled up all my particulars, and it gave me the error.

 

And then written under the error message, it said that if I kept getting that error, to contact an email address and let them know that I was getting this error and it would take 3-4 business days for someone to look at my email. Also asked me to provide my name, birth date, and send a copy of the NVC email/letter that I received. I sent it right away, but dont know if this would be sufficient or if I need to change something.

 

BTW, what is a DS 260 number? I dont have one, or dont know where to find it. All I had through this process was my NVC case number and the IVSCA number.

 

And how do I register for the passport return?

 

Also, do I need to pay any fee in Montreal? Or can I pay it at the border? I have already paid the application fee and the Affidavit of Support fee during the NVC process.

Finally, it went through. Somehow, the error was related to Montreal not having processed the receipt of my appointment. I successfully registered my appointment and also opted for home delivery by CPC. Thank you all for your inputs.
