The wait time for the interview depends on the Embassy or Consulate. Then there is an additional wait time of 10 calendar days for the visa to be sent to you.
Before the pandemic, wait times for an interview are the following:
- Calgary: 9-128 calendar days
- Ottawa: 3-10 calendar days
- Halifax: 1-2 calendar days
- Montreal: 2-30 calendar days
- Quebec: 7 Calendar days
- Toronto: 3-8 calendar days
- Vancouver: 2-5 calendar days
- Winnipeg: Office currently does not handle visa applications.
We will update these wait times when the pandemic is over.
Note: These processing times change daily. You should consult the State Department’s website for the most up-to-date processing times. Some applications will take longer to process.
