  1. my husband had his interview today at the Montreal consulate and was approved! they only asked four basic questions. I hope you all have similar outcomes soon - especially everyone at Nebraska. I can't believe how long they are making you wait
  2. Our lawyer told us we could not schedule the medical appt until we had received an interview date, but this is the third or fourth example I’ve seen recently where medical is scheduled before the interview is assigned, so now I’m worried we’ve wasted the time since we were documentarily qualified. Does anyone know if we are delaying our interview by not booking medical yet? PS, congrats KayMFrench!
  3. I have crossed at both Sarnia and at Windsor/Detroit and would recommend Sarnia for two reasons. 1) rush hour in that area is not as bad as in Detroit so you don't have to worry about your timing quite as much and 2) Sarnia is more of a trucking border point, so the car line is usually shorter, whereas Detroit has more personal vehicles. I have also traveled with a dog across both border points - the key thing you need is an up to date rabies certificate with some description of the dog on it. For example, my dog's certificate lists his weight, color and breed so they can take a look at him and somewhat verify the validity. I can't remember if it needs to be valid for 6 months or a year from the date of crossing, but it definitely can't be about to expire. Also, all dog food you transport across the border is supposed to be sealed, but I have never had anyone actually check that. I've never done the crossing in a U-Haul so I can't speak to that piece of it, but the previous poster's idea of having a list of boxes, etc, seems smart.
  4. It may help you to have at least one more visit before you file, but it's worth noting that part of the reason for interviews being done at a local consulate is that they take into account the local culture's practices. Since your culture often arranges marriages, this will not be the same type of red flag as it might be if you were from a country that does not practice arranged marriages. The important thing here is for you to prove that your husband did not marry you specifically so that he could enter the United States; if he has a decent job, strong ties India, has not dated an American before you, has never been denied or overstayed a visa, and has a clean criminal record, you should be fine.
