Consulate Review: Montreal, Canada
Review Topic: K1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : January 2, 2011
Embassy Review : This went smoothly. One thing I should point out is when you arrive at the Consulate, you will line up outside. Once inside the waiting area, there is no line. The actual line forms when they start letting people go up the elevator to the interview room. Sit as close to the elevator as you can, so you can get a good place in line. The lady who interviewed us was very nice. Everything went great.
Rating : 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
