Consulate Review: Montreal, Canada
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : December 2, 2009
Embassy Review : Well my husband and I arrived early 6:15 there was already one woman in line (she too was also a VJ member) a few minutes later people started arriving, so thankyou to everyone on here we had heads-up on the timing.
There's a small coffee shop right at the same corner of the street so some of us went in at differant times to get a coffee and warm up (it was so cold)washrooms are also available next to the coffee shop.
The door for the consulate opened at 7:30 the guard let us in the first glass doorways and gave us a Letter, mine was A, then he directed us to go thru the second set of glass doors, there we were asked to remove our coats and gloves(putting them in a plastic box to be put thru a scanner) it's the same as if you were in an airport)in a second plastic box you put anything like purses wallet etc and that too goes thru the scanner. Then they will ask you to walk thru a scanning device(again it looks just like the airport ones)
After your finished with security they will ask you to walk downstairs to a waiting room with chairs next to an elevator.
We waited there for only minutes while letter's A-E were gathered in a group, then the guard takes that group up the elevator and walk's them to the area waiting room (a breath taking view)
At 8am I was the first to be called to window #9, greeted by a very pleasant man, he asked me to check the information they had with my name and my husband's name to make sure all was correct and to hand in my envelope and (2)passport picture's
This gentleman asked me a couple of questions about "how my husband and I met","what does my husband do for a living" then I was asked to return to the waiting room and I would be called soon.
I was called about 10 minutes later back to window #9, this time for fingerprinting then once again asked to return to the waiting room.
Barely time to sit I was called to window #4, a small booth type room with one chair and glass window, with another very pleasant man sitting behind.
"He asked me where I met my husband",,"How many children do I have",,then he turned to my husband and asked him "Where he was born",,"Where he worked", turned to me and asked when I would like to move to the USA and I said ASAP!!!
He said Welcome to the USA explained to me about the visa coming and details as to how to enter. We were all finished with the process in an hour.
The consulate is very organized and the staff and officer's were all extremely pleasant and kind.

Rating : 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
