Consulate Review: Montreal, Canada
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : December 18, 2019
Embassy Review : The interview was scheduled for 7:30am on December 9th 2019 at the new consulate location. It took about 45 minutes of waiting for him to be called for the actual interview and they only asked 4 questions:

1. How did you meet?

2. When did you get married?

3. What state does your wife live in?

4. What has been the longest amount of consecutive time you have spent in the United States?

He was not asked to provide any additional documents and was told the visa could take 2-4 weeks to be issued. We received the notice that his passport was ready to be picked up on Dec. 12th (Thursday) so it only took 3 days total.
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
