Consulate Review: Montreal, Canada
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : August 8, 2018
Embassy Review : Here's how it all went down..
I first went next to the food court in Eaton Centre to leave the stuff I couldn't bring in a locker there, which cost $1. Then walked to the location where my interview was schedule. My interview was scheduled for 7:30 AM, which I arrived around 7:15 AM but seemed like it was first come first serve as a few people was already there lining up. The security officer then walk by all of us to make sure we didn't have anything that was prohibited and for the one that did, such as having a backpack (even if it was containing their baby stuff) was advised that it was prohibited. They then made us go 2 by 2 inside and another security lady made sure I guess, of our names on a list and gave us a plastified paper with a number and a list to follow on how to place our documents in order. I had #7. We then all organized our documents and waited for another security agent to let us go to the 19th floor which we had to wait for our number to be called. Once my number called out, I went to the window where the agent was with my daughter which we went through the documents together (I had more documents then required but I guess better safe then sorry). A very nice lady by the way, she then took our finger prints and sent us back to the seated area where we had to wait for our number to be called again. I remember seeing people coming out from their interview a smile and really hoped for it to happen to me too. They then called my number and another lady made us swear and asked general questions such as, "How did you meet?", How many times have you met in person?", "What does he do for a living?", "What are your plans once in America?", etc. Interview lasted about 5-10 mins. She then handle us a pink paper that said "Welcome to America" and said our VISAS were approved and there was our smiles!! Hahaha
Overall, I was way too nervous for my own good!! Everyone was very nice and professional!! I'm just so HAPPY and so ready 😁
Rating : Very Poor

*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
