Processing Times Faster for E-1 & E-2 Visas With This Change!
The U.S. Consulate in Toronto, Canada has recently implemented a new, Streamlined E-visa application process for “first time E visa applicants and applicants renewing their E visas”. What is being changed on the visa processing is the following: the Post will be receiving and reviewing E-visa applications before the applicant schedules an in-person interview. The U.S. Consulate is expecting that this will speed up the processing times and assist in providing better customer service for E visas.
1. New E Visa Applications and E Visa Renewals:
First-time applicants and those applying to renew the registration status of their E-visa company are offered a “deferred interview” appointment. According to the post’s website, anyone may apply for an E-visa in Canada – this includes Canadian Citizens, Canadian Residents, and Third Country Nationals (TCNs). First-time E-1/E-2 (Treaty Trader/Investor) visa applicants and those applying to renew the registration status of their E-visa company must apply at the U.S. Consulate in Toronto. Applicants must still first create an appointment profile and pay the required visa application fee online at https://ais.usvisa-info.com. The visa interview will be deferred until the applicants has electronically submitted their application and supporting documents to the U.S. Consulate in Toronto via email@example.com. Once the application has been reviewed, which requires at least 10 business days, the U.S. Consulate will email instructions on how to schedule an appointment for the in-person visa interview. Applicants will be unable to schedule an appointment until then.
2. Employees of Registered Companies and Dependents:
Employees of currently registered E-visa companies and qualifying family members of current E-visa holders, can schedule the next available visa appointments in Calgary, Montreal, Ottawa, Vancouver or Toronto.

I cannot thank VisaPlace enough for their help. I had an issue with my immigration work that I needed professional help with. The team did a stellar job in making my case and I am greatly indebted to them. I worked directly with Alicea. She was extremely professional and responsive! Even after building my case and submitting my application, she was always available to answer any questions or concerns I had for several months after. I highly recommend the team and would come back in future if I have to. Thank you!
Visaplace was able to get myself my Visa, as well as many of my employees. They made my dreams of living in the USA and starting a company come true. Their process is clean, simple, and affordable. Thank you to the whole team for your incredible work!
I just cannot praise this place enough, staff is extremely helpful, very knowledgeable, all my questions were answered elaborately and not once I was confused from the answer. They do their best to get back to you as quick as possible after you have asked a question, I can actually sit down and praise this place all day and still there will be a lot more left to praise about, Richard, Lisa, Alicea, Rania, Caroline, and everybody else, such a great staff! I am finally permanent resident! It was a long journey but patience and hard work with a good Immigration Law Firm is the key from my experience! I would strongly recommend this place, VisaPlace I thank you very much for making my dream come true, every penny spent was completely worth it.
