Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

Hi Everyone! I wanted to update everyone on my experience on Friday, Nov 15th. - Approved Visa Status

I drove in from Toronto the night before and stayed at the Comfort In Suites. It was a 5-6 minute walk to the embassy and they offered free breakfast. My appointment was for 7:30am and I arrived at 7:15am. Please make sure you dress warm, in case they keep you waiting outside. They let us in 2 by 2 and I got in between 8:15am-8:30am-ish. Just like others have mentioned - you walk in, hand them your passport, they place a sticker at the back and hand it back to you as well as the laminated sheet with a number at the top. I was #8. The order of documents if I recall correctly is:

-Laminated Sheet
-Passport
-Passport Pictures
-Medical Report
-Original Birth Certificate
-Original Marriage Certificate
-AOS (I-846)
-Most recent taxes

They direct you to the first floor, there is a waiting area a... read complete review

Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

While eating my croissant. Here it is.

After months of waiting for IL, we finally got it Oct 15 for a Nov 8 interview. One week prior, we were rescheduled Nov 18 due to the move.

Interview day November 18,2019.
My appointment time is 8:30 am. Left my hotel at 8:20 because I’ve read that they turn you away and wont let you in nor line up outside before the appointment schedule.
Got to the consulate door 8:23 and there were people outside in queue. I asked a few of them if what time is their appointment and they all said 8:30. They let in people 3 at a time then 1 by 1.
I was inside 8:41. Handed my passport to the ladies and they checked my name on their ipad. Gave me back my passport and a laminated sheet with assigned number and instructions on how they want your documents arranged.
Went through security. Left my phone at the hotel to make it easier for me but if you decide to bring, they will keep it for you. Took my coat... read complete review

Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa

Hi everyone,

I had my IR1 interview in Montreal on October 15, 2019, and was told then that it would take two to three weeks before my passport was returned to me with my visa. It has now been well over a month and I've had no news. Calls and emails just result in being told I "just have to wait." I've seen others post here that they have had interviews since mine or on the same day, and have already received their documents.

The ais web site hasn't changed since I registered for my appointment back in mid September. The CEAC site still says that my case is "ready", though yesterday the "case last updated" field was changed to November 13 -- maybe a sign of movement?

I am wondering if a computer issue may be the cause of my delay and would love to know if anyone else has had the same experience.

While I was meeting with the consular officer for my actual interview, the computer they use to match my fingerprint to the oath wasn... read complete review

The experience was great. The interviewer was very nice. Make sure you organize your paperwork well so you provide all their required documents as soon as you get in.

Review Topic: K1 Visa

Walked over to the consulate at around 06:50AM and arrived at the door by 07:00AM for our 07:30AM appointment. We were #7 in the line. Before 07:30AM, the guard came out and spoke to some with backpacks that backpacks are not allowed inside the consulate. So they bolted out of the line but returned later (saw them at the 19th floor room). I have with me all documents in a market-type bag. Heavy!

One by one, they asked us to enter the building. Got our passports ready and the appointment letter out. The lady gave us the laminated paper with the order of documents listed in it after she confirmed our appointment and sticked some info (MTL#, name, etc) at the back of our passports.

Proceed to the security. My Samsung watch and car key fob were left behind. No cellphones with us since it already stated in the P4 that we can't bring cellphones (I have to google the location of the consulate and memorize where to go.)

Asked to g... read complete review
