Recommended Posts

Howdy Folks,

I had my visa approval today 05-12-14, wanted to share my experience.

Flew in from NY yesterday, stayed at a friends place in Brampton which is ard 1 hr via train from the embassy.

My appointment is at 9 am, took the train from Bramalea GO Station Rail(Brampton) at 7.12 am, got down at the Union station-> took the subways to the Osgoode station(2n stop from unionstation. I was at the embassy at 8.25 and the rest followed.


The security guy allowed me inside at 8.25, security check completed in less than 5 minutes,

I was then asked to go a guy who verfied the DS-160 and the passport, the verifcation was done, he kept my pp n ds 160 in a blue floder and asked me stand in the line.

Stood in the line for about 5 mins, then i was asked to come over inside and stand in a different line( this is where the DS 160 will be validated if the PIMS verification is complete.

The first sigh of releif was she wrote on the DS -160 PIMS OK, and then the lady asked me to the counter at the end( finger prints), the PIMS verification n finger prints were completed in less than 10 mins. After the finger prints were completed the lady gave me a token and asked me to sit, the time is about 8.55

In less than 2 minutes my token was called, the VO was a young american guys in his early 30's

The entire process took less than 40 mins, from the time I entered the counslate till I left.

I would just suggest to be confident and clear with the response you are giving.


This forum is very useful, I recommend every one to write their exp.
