Consulate Review: Montreal, Canada
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : January 4, 2011
Embassy Review : Went early, approx. 6:30am, was first in line. Doors opened at 7:30. Got the letter A from the security guard. Security was similiar to airport security. Waited in a room with an elevator for a guard to take us up. Sat in a huge waiting room for approx. 15 mins. Called to a window, gave the man behind the glass all the original docs he asked for. Sat down for 15 mins, went back and had fingerprints taken, sat back down. In approx. 30 mins was called into another room, took an oath to tell the truth, was questioned on various things (ie where did we meet, what does my husband do for a living, etc). Was given a 221 (g) for additional documents at the end of my interview. Went back home, sent in the required docs, waited approx 10 weeks and finally got approval!
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
