Consulate Review: Montreal, Canada
Review Topic: K3 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : July 17, 2008
Embassy Review : Got into Montreal around midnight on Sunday night, checked into the Days Inn Centre Ville. Woke up the next morning and walked to the Consulate, which took about 10 minutes. Got there at 6:45am and was first in line, but decided we wanted a cup of coffee from the corner store. Doors opened at about 7:25am, we were out of there by 8:55am. Nothing spectacular to add to anyone else's comments, it went as easy as one could hope. Visa arrived in the mail today (Thursday) so we're good to go!
Rating : Very Good

POE Review: CDN-USA Border
Event Description
Entry Date : 2008-07-18
Embassy Review : Sault Ste Marie, Michigan

We decided to drive over to the Soo and get our K-3 activated to avoid any hassles at Toronto Pearson, since we've had much better experiences at land crossings then airports.

The CBP guards were friendly and had our K-3 processed within 20 minutes. They asked if we had any questions at all about any of the next steps in the process, which we didn't because of VJ.

Besides waiting on the bridge for about 45 minutes due to Friday afternoon traffic, the experience was painless...
Harassment Level : Low

Local US CIS Office Review: Anchorage AK
Review Topic: cis_topic
Event Description
Review Date : April 25, 2009
Embassy Review : Our AOS interview was pretty quick...about 10 minutes max. Maybe it was that fast since we had our 2 year old destroying the office! We didn't bring much evidence in, with the exception of our taxes and some bills...we figured that two kids would be pretty good evidence. I wish we had brought more, but the interviewer seemed satisfied. Got our green card less then 2 weeks after the interview!
Harassment Level : 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
