How long is it taking to get an interview in Montreal?

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I've been searching on here for some timelines as far as how long its taking between getting your NOA2 and getting an interview scheduled in Montreal for a K-1 visa but I'm getting a bit confused... I'm seeing anywhere from a month to 4+ months... what is the average scheduling time right now for an interview in Montreal? Does it matter if you are doing a K-1 or a K-3 interview or are they both the same time frame?

Thanks!

Its taking something like 6 months to have an interview in Montreal. K-1 and K-3 are about the same. The only way you can speed that up, is if the petitioner is in the military and has orders to be deployed.

:wacko: I'm not sure where you're seeing one month, though I think last year it was at about 2 months. :mellow: But it's 4.5-6 months since January and maybe even a bit earlier! Lots of us are still waiting!

You guys are lucky that they are at least responding to your emails. My hubby had his interview in February and they wanted a "different" version of a document that all other steps in the process had accepted (we waited more than five months for the interview too.)

So I submitted the supplemental evidence (which took four more months to get from the far reaches of my hubby's birth country) and now they have had it for more than a month and will not give me a status update! They refuse to answer emails.

I am now convinced that Senator assistance, which I've heard from others is the ONLY way to communicate with Montreal, will be necessary :(

You can both try the Canadian Forum....Montreal timeline to Interview. Liz has done up a doc, that lists the actual timelines clearly.

Emt, we've all be calling. Maybe try that.
