Consulate Review: Montreal, Canada
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : January 15, 2009
Embassy Review : We arrived just before 8:00 am and took no time to get through security smoothly. We were prepared for security and carried only necessities with us. Once inside, we were given simple straight-forward written instructions as to what was needed in what order. As we went throught he various steps in the process, there was never any confusion and all of the staff was friendly and courteous. Each interview was non-confrontational and took less than 10 minutes. Each person was given a number and there was never any confusion about where you were to go next, and which documents were needed, at each step of the process. We were finished by 11:00 am.

*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
