Administrative processing can not be expedited or waived.  Technically, it could take weeks, months, or in some cases, years......In Montreal, it more likely to be only a couple weeks.....but could be more, imo.

Read the myriad of threads in these fora about folks being in AP and how long will it last, and can I (basically) make it go away.

 

AP, or Administrative Processing (I think that there is another definition also) is basically whatever any of these bureaucratic entities associated with process, USICS, DOS, CBP,  want or need it to be. Extra time to finish checking on anything, waiting for results of anything, printing,....anything.:idea: It will last as long as they want, or need it to be. Sure, you can try to expedite your case, but that may result in something akin to pyrrhic victory. You win the battle, but lose the war. Are you ahead? 🤔They may just sit on your file longer, or put it at the bottom of the pile, or they may just reject you outright. Are you ahead? 🤔

 

All of us know that these processes can be maddening, we have all been there, done that, read the book, seen the movie, been in the same situation. All you can do is exercise some patience. You would do well to consider this entire process as an extended, continual exercise in patience.:yes:

 

Good luck on your immigration journey.

I was in the same boat. Do not worry, it is not a bad sign. I was afraid too. But it is normal. I've received my passport with K1 visa in about 1,5 months. My friend had the same situation, but her AP lasted 2 weeks only. I send you luck! Do not worry

Another recent VJer Indian National applying through MTL was in AP for about 30 days, if that helps. But every case is different. It's very normal for Montreal so don't worry. All you can do is wait.

Because resealing the envelope is an administrative process


YMMV
