Consulate Review: Montreal, Canada
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : December 7, 2012
Embassy Review : -Appointment times do not hold any precedence. It is essentially first come, first serve.
-Wait time after entering the building for us was about 2hours. In total, we spent 2.5hours at the consulate.
-Our interviewer was pleasant, and fully engaged in conversing with us during the interview. He made us comfortable, and feel at ease with the questioning.
-We noticed most interviews were 20-30min, but ours was barely 10min.
-Important info for Montreal interviewers:
1) Make sure you check in at the window the the L of the elevator once you get upstairs (the arrows are not noticeable, so many people were missing this step).
2) Ensure you have your Loomis reference # with you when going to the consulate... It is required before they will even let you in the building (us, as well as many others around us were turned away for not having it).
Rating : Good

*Notice about estimates: The estimates are based off averages of other members recent experiences
(documented in their timelines) for the same benefit/petition/application at the same filing location.
Individual results may vary as every case is not always 'average'. Past performance does not necessarily
predict future results. The 'as early as date' may change over time based on current reported processing
times from members. There have historically been cases where a benefit/petition/application processing
briefly slows down or stops and this can not be predicted. Use these dates as reference only and do not
rely on them for planning. As always you should check the USCIS processing times to see if your application
is past due.

** Not all cases are transfered
