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 evisacanada@state.gov. 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.
