Walked to the Consulate from my Airbnb. (12 mins) Arrived at 7:55 appt at 8:30. After security screen, took elevator up to 19th floor. I sat at a desk and organized the paperwork according to the order they give you on the laminated card with your number. I was 16. I got called up to the intake window at 9:30. Gave the super nice lady all my documents that were asked for, got fingerprinted and went to sit down again. My number wasn’t called until 11:30. The interview itself was fast, only got asked my husband’s full name, where he was living, why had changed embassies. He commented that my file was very well put together (because I was originally at Juarez, all my documents were submitted in paper form, so my file was about 6 inches thick! Most people there have submitted their paperwork through CEAC). He said “well I have no more questions, so welcome to the USA!! That was it. Most of the time was spent sitting and stewing over nothing. Just relax.

The interview was scheduled for 12/05/18 @ 7:30 am (Wednesday) originally but was rescheduled for 12/07/18 @ 8:00 am by the consulate due to the 5th suddenly becoming a federal holiday. Emails advising of the change were received Monday evening (12/03/18). Luckily the hotel (Le Square Phillips) was able to change our reservations and we drove to Montreal from Toronto.

We left the hotel at 7:30 and walked (maybe 5 minutes) to the consulate, which was just down the street a bit. The entrance is on the side of the building (to the right). We waited in line and both got out our passports and the interview confirmation email. We’re were let in a few people at a time. My fiancé handed his passport and confirmation letter to a woman at a podium to the right, then she gave him his number and the laminated document list. She also put an interview sticker on the back of his passport and gave it back. I handed her my passport and she asked if I was the petitioner (yes) and th... read complete review

Well my interview was initially booked for December 5th at 7:30 AM. Because of President Bush's funeral, Trump declared all federal buildings to close on the 5th. So I was sitting in my hotel room and got an email at 9 PM on Monday - the same email that you get when you book your appointment and pay your visa fee that has your date on it. Well I looked at it and it said December 6th at 7:30 AM. So I was confused and was just going to go to the consulate on Wednesday like I was originally booked to do so. Then at 10:30 PM I get another email that says that my appointment was cancelled and moved, and "sorry for the inconvenience". While I had my return flight to Saskatchewan booked for Thursday at 9 AM. My appointment is now Thursday at 7:30 AM. So I had to fight with Air Canada to get a different fight and several emotional breakdowns later I get a new flight. I was unsure as how long the process was going to take as they were fitting half the people scheduled on Wednesday in with all t... read complete review

Arrived at the consulate at approximately 7:05 am for my 7:30 am appointment. There were already 5 people ahead of me. At 7:25 am, the lights to the entrance of the consulate turned on. At 7:30 am a security guard came outside and started letting people in two at a time. Once inside you hand your passport and appointment letter to the person at the door, who then sticks a sticker with your name on the back of your passport. This person also hands you a sheet with a number on it and a list of the documents you need in the order they want. After this, you are instructed to go through security where you take off your coat, take everything out of your pockets, and go through a metal detector. After, you are instructed to go downstairs and wait.

My number was #6, and when downstairs I had more than enough time to arrange my documents. Then a security guard comes, and instructs everyone to get in the elevator and he sends you up to the 19th floor. On the 19th floor you sit an... read complete review

K-1 visa

Our Appointment time: 7:30 am
Our arrival time: 6:45 am.

The doors did not open until 7:30 am. By then, there were about 10-12 groups of people waiting outside. I want to emphasize that the consulate basically takes people in on a first come first serve basis (based off of appointment time like previous reviews stated) and people were let inside one at a time.

Overall our experience was similar to all the other reviews regarding what to expect. Some of the guards were a little impatient but otherwise everything went smoothly.


NOTE: The interviewer told me that the Canada Post strike is over, very good news.
