  1. Just checking, as per OP you can track SSN with USCIS SAVE?
  2. Get a new PCC, you don’t have to wait for them for that one. Interestingly, DOS considers PCC good for two years (regardless of actual expiry) but if I’m remembering correctly MTL sometimes still asks for a fresh one anyway, at least that’s what I’ve seen in the past.
  3. Sending documents to the embassy goes through third party security sorting, and it can take a few weeks for it to finally land on a CO’s desk If your CEAC status doesn’t change to Issued by the date your medical expires, you will be requested to get another one, as the medical expiry is the same as the validity of the visa (6 months from medical).
  4. Check out this info for 221g for DV 2022, it should have the same patterns as other IV at Montreal except in this case there is a maximum (DV cannot be issued past Sept 30 of the relevant fiscal year). 221(g) Statistics for Diversity Visa Applicants.pdf
  5. Before crossing, be sure to pay your immigrant visa fee. Your visa packet should have instructions on how to do this. In your DS260 you would have indicated an address to send your green card. Once you cross, the green card will be sent to that address. It can take 1-6 months, I got mine in less than a month. You would have also indicated in your DS260 if you would like an SSN produced. If you chose yes, like the green card it will be sent to that address. It comes quite fast, 1-2 weeks.
  6. You only declare what you’re crossing with at the time. Generally, if you are absent from the US: < 6 months you can preserve continuous residence for naturalization > 6 months you break continuous residence for naturalization > 12 months you risk abandonment of LPR status YMMV
  7. I walked across the rainbow bridge, entered the US, then walked back. In and out in less than 20 minutes.
  8. That‘s an unusual request. I wonder if they have concerns about your travel history, was that a point of discussion at your interview? As a general rule, Montreal moves in slow motion, and the simplest things take at least 6-8 weeks to resolve.
  9. https://trellis.law/doc/16177560/judgment-to-court-proposed Has been succesfully sued for malpractice
  10. 1. Yes https://www.cdc.gov/immigrantrefugeehealth/panel-physicians/vaccinations.html#covid-19-vaccination https://extranet.who.int/pqweb/vaccines/vaccinescovid-19-vaccine-eul-issued 2. No You can also contact the panel physician where the medical will take place to confirm.
  11. 1. No, it’s part of routine background checks 2. Yes 3. No
  12. Casablanca is up and running, that’s a super outdated auto reply. They’ve issued almost 3000 DV visas this year so far, outperforming every African embassy apart from Algiers. There’s definitely no issue with routine visa services.
  13. Nice! Yeah, couldn’t recommend him enough. Yes, 99% of their emails are templates. Very rarely do they say anything different. Sometimes they paste the response, changing a word here or there, or rearrange a sentence 🫠 Wish you the best
