Member Reviews:

Consulate Review: Montreal, Canada
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : June 22, 2009
Embassy Review : Arrived early and was second in line.
No problems at security - just like any airport these days.
Entered elevator - remember to face the back as they open from there.
Sat for a bit and visited with others.
Called to first of two interviews - paperwork clarified, with slight changes, fingerprints taken, and Xpresspost envelope given.
Returned to lobby to await second interview. Sworn in. He asked how we met(playing cards on internet), when did you meet face to face 2001, when were you married - July 2008, oh a long courtship - yes. What does your husband do? Works for IRS - small joke about not wanting to be audited. Well, based on the information provided you are granted a conditional visa ( or something to that effect.) Your visa will come in approximately 2 weeks.
Congratulations!
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
