Consulate Review: Montreal, Canada
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : June 11, 2010
Embassy Review : A lot of waiting. We got to the embassy at 7am (interview at 8am) stood in line with others. proceeded through security. from there went down stairs. then waited for a guard to bring us up. once up in the embassy, we got in line to receive a number. then sat and waited till that number was called. Finally ours was. when we got to the booth to get our papers reviewed before the interview, we were asked if we had paid the fees, no I hadn't, but no one had said anything till that point. he informed me that last week the Visa Fee jumped to $350 not $131 (which is what my letter had said). I left my poor fiance in the embassy, ran to find an ATM. Locked my account- too high withdrawal. Ran to the hotel where my dad was staying .....drove around to find a bank, got the money. went back to the embassy (it\\\'s been an hour). go through security and run to find my fiance. Paid the fees and went back to continue review of our papers. after that we sat back down in the waiting room then to be called into our interview. it lasted about 15 mins and we were approved. he asked us the following after swearing before some oath?:
how we met
when we saw each other
if i had gone to see my fiance in IA before
did a finger print thing
asked my fiance about where he worked and the geographical location of where we live etc and that was about it! :D

by 12:30pm we got out of the embassy and were starving hungry but ohhhh SO HAPPY :D

*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
