Consulate Review: Montreal, Canada
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : June 4, 2008
Embassy Review : It was like having a job interview except there was only one person asking questions at a time.

The security guards are a tad tense, but I suppose they may need to be at times. Once upstairs, everyone was nice and polite. The gentleman who did the interview was very nice. Questioned both my daughter and I about a variety of things. He did his best to give me approval for both but due to the "reasonable access" part in the agreement, he couldn't approve my daughter's without her father's consent, which I didn't get.
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
