U.S. Consulate General in Toronto to Require E Visa Applicants to E-Mail Applications

Effective March 1, 2014, the U.S. Consulate General in Toronto will move to an electronic filing of E visa comprehensive packages in advance of an interview.  The post announced the change on February 10, 2014 and requests that the visa packages arrive at least 2 weeks in advance of the interview appointment date.  The submissions are to be in .pdf format and no longer than 35 double sided or 70 single sided pages.  The Consulate already uses an online appointment service for treaty trader (E-1) and treaty investor (E-2) visa applicants and these enhancements are part of the post’s efforts at greater convenience and efficiency for E visa applicants.
