Comments : We had to wait for more than an hour after being sent to the great "aluminum" room. Many people went ahead of us. The guards asked a lot of questions about my husband's motives for immigrating to Canada (many years ago) and about his visits to Pakistan, but in the end were very nice and told him "Welcome to the United States!"

Consulate Review: Montreal, Canada
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : February 20, 2007
Embassy Review : I arrived at Consulate 1 hour after my husband (the Canadian citizen) and the security guard had no problem letting me in with just my U.S. Passport. The staff was friendly, but seemed suspicious, not sure if it had a lot to do with my husband being Pakistani as well, or maybe I'm just a worry wart.
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
