Consulate Review: Montreal, Canada
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : February 6, 2008
Embassy Review : I have nothing but amazing things to say about all the staff at the Montreal consulate. They were patient, helpful and very effective at their jobs.

I arrived at the consulate at about 7:30 and was the 7th person for the K-1 process. I was out of the consulate by 9:30am!

The questions were straight forward and the interview lasted only 2.5 minutes.

A few things to note - the fee is $131.00. A lot of people thought it was $100 but they have raised it. They will NOT accept any Canadian cash.

No electronics, big bags or food and drink are allowed inside. They are very very serious about this.

As i said though, everything turned out great and I got approved on the spot!

The consulate in montreal gets a 10 on 5 from me, a great experience!
Rating : Very Good

POE Review: Toronto
Event Description
Entry Date : 2008-02-13
Embassy Review : My entry into the US through the Toronto airport was hassle free. The customs officer joked with us about me wanting to move to Phoenix and about Mark wanting to marry me. He was very friendly and very helpful.
He then sent us to see the immigration officer and this part was even easier. He took my fingerprints to verify who I was, had me fill out an I-94 and then told me to sit and wait a few minutes. I watched him look through all of my papers, stamp a bunch of different things, laugh at how much paperwork he had to look through and then handed my back my passport and sent me on my way.
The whole process probably took at total of 15-20 minutes, with 19 of those minutes just sitting and waiting for him to review the paperwork.

Overall, a very easy and hassle free border crossing!
Harassment Level : Low

*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
