Immigrant Visa Montreal Canada

As of August 31, 2022, we are delighted to share a positive development for clients awaiting their immigrant visa interviews based on employment at the US Consulate in Montreal, Canada. Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, employment-based immigrant visa interviews have been temporarily halted, causing delays and cancellations.

Recent reports indicate that interview notices are now being issued, signaling the resumption of these crucial immigration proceedings. The cancellation of previously scheduled interviews due to COVID-19 is being addressed, and the US Consulate in Montreal is actively clearing out long-pending cases.

For individuals eager to track the processing times for the National Visa Center (NVC) and the Montreal Consulate, here’s how:
