There inbox thread for Montreal. Not sure if u know about it. I wish its common forum thread that way everyone is aware. 

I agree more info should get posted in the forum instead of the 8000+ page inbox thread. Forums are much easier to search for key words and allows everyone to benefit from information.

Pasting from other thread. 

 

Here's a littke recap of my interview:

 

**I received an email last week letting me know that my police clearance was expired and I needed financials for 2019. Was asked to upload these to ceac.**

 

-Had redone my police cert in Nov last year after some people had been denied due to wrong cert (even after NVC had accepted) so I uploaded that  and once my husband finally got his taxes done last week I uploaded tax forms and W2's for 2019.

 

- interview was at 845am, arrived a couple mins early no one else outside. Door was locked but someone came out and asked me for my ID and did covid screening questions...travel, symptoms...the usual. Then let me in.

 

-scan items to make sure no electronics then sent me to floor one and told me to go to one of 3 specific windows once upstairs...pay attention and do exactly that (the security guy up there snapped at some poor man for trying to ask him where to go when he got off the elevator)

 

-once upstairs at window they asked for specific things...passport, original marriage cert, birth cert, police clearance, sealed medical and 1 photo, then took finger prints. Clarified addresses and dates while scanning in papers. Gave me back my chest xray dvd and a pamphlet on abuse then told me to have a seat and they would call me by name and tell me which window to go to.

 

-sat for about 1 hour then got called up to window, did oath, asked if I read the pamphlet then asked me when I met my husband, if it was both of our first marriages, if we had any children together  what his job was, if I'd ever been arrested anywhere and where I wanted green card sent. 

 

-she then checked the date of medical and I told her it was new (obtained Aug 25) so she changed the date on computer and then said my visa would expire with my police clearance (Nov 19) so I had to cross before then.

 

-kept my passport and police cert and handed back everything else along with a welcome to the USA paper with info on paying green card fee. Then thanked me for being so organized and prepared.

 

**they did not ask for financials but I could see there were notes written on  my file that said they had been uploaded.**

 

Overall it was stress free. I took exactly what they asked for on my interview letter and then followed instructions when asked for uploads. No more, no less.

There were only 2 other people upstairs when I got off elevator, one being interviewed and one waiting. 2 other individuals and a family of 4 came while I was waiting.  Everyone was friendly (aside from the 1 security guard) and I was back in my hotel by 1030am.

It's been done before and it never sticks as well as the chat has, feel free to try though. Also, I'd share the thread where I shared the FAQ as a post instead of a doc but apparently it's been deleted.

I think most of the peoole are on inbox thread so its hard to have forum like this active. I didn't know for the longest time that inbox chat existed. I used to gp crazy how not lot of information on Montreal existed. I will also try post some info here from inbox to see if we can get this thread going.
