Hello, Thank you, yes we kind of celebrated in Montreal, but the real celebration will be when my husband comes to USA.
Our experience was different than others from this consulate, due to some circumstances.
First of all we reached at the consulate around 8.30 AM, appointment was at 9.30 AM. We checked in at the reception and the lady from there gave us a sheet which had a number at top and list of documents. After that we went through security check, they kept our cell phones there but we were able to take everything else including my purse with us. They told us to take elevator to 19th floor ( they did not have any other floor options in the elevator ). We took a seat in waiting are once we got to 19th floor. They were calling people to submit original documents at windows 1-4, interviews were taking place at window 7,8 -- I noticed that they were calling everybody for interview to window 8 in numerical order. Only the ones who had a red flags on their files were called to window 7. My husband was called to window 7 -- They interviewed him for about 5-7 minutes and asked him to take a seat because they need to review his file again and they will call him again. He was called again after 15-20 minutes. They asked him pretty much the same questions again and said that your visa is approved and he will get his passport back in 2 weeks-- he got his passport back on 3rd day after interview.
They asked him if he had any issues with law enforcement, any debts, if he has any property in Canada, with who he lives in Canada, what does he do in Canada, how much money he makes in a month... there were a lot more questions.
They did not see any pictures, call details, did not ask for any proofs when I went to visit him in Canada. It was a stressful morning.. we were there from around 8.30 to 11sh.
Good luck to your interview.
