Consulate Review: Montreal, Canada
Review Topic:
Event Description
Review Date : September 25, 2005
Embassy Review : Second review after more consul contact:

Let me add that they told us repeatedly to "send in the passport" and we will issue the visa. We called them back to say "Are you sure??" because my fi only had 5 months and 3 weeks left on his current passport (one wek short of the 6 month minimum required)

Their response "Don't send us the passport"

Had to get a renewed one. Of course this is our mistake, not theirs for telling us to send it in repeatedly.


Rating : Moderate

Local US CIS Office Review: Tampa FL
Review Topic: cis_topic
Event Description
Review Date : April 15, 2007
Embassy Review : Infopass appointment :

Officer was very rude, took longer to park than to get kicked out of the office after being told there is nothing they can do (FBI namecheck still pending). We felt we had given them plenty of time prior to "bugging" them. We had made this interview over a year after we filed our AOS. We were not treated very well at all.
Harassment Level : Very Poor

*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
