Consulate Review: Montreal, Canada
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : August 25, 2017
Embassy Review : Piece of cake all the way!

Everyone from security to the interviewer were all very friendly, smiling, and comfortable people. It was all very casual. The total time spent at the consulate was just over an hour. You will be in a room with other people who are all experiencing the same thing! We had a great time chatting about our experiences, where we were going, and how we met our fiances. The staff made sure we were at ease.

They did not follow their own documentation, but as long as you bring what appears on Packet 4 you will be perfectly fine!
Rating : Very 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
