I am applying for the Canadian tourist visa from USA. I have already studied and lived in Canada before. Now simply applying as a tourist.

I have my biometrics on the 9th of Dec. Can I also mail my passport to the LA VAC immediately without waiting for passport request form. I reckon this will save me 2 days.

2. TT form – 2 copies

Please let me if I am missing to send any other documents.

Appreciate your responses.

Hi There,

I received a confirmation for sending the passport to nearby VAC in the USA. I sent my passport along with the requested docs, but I included a $19.90 money order instead of $20.40(which is effective from Nov 02, 2019 and I did notice it after sending the documents to VAC). Did anybody face this situation? and what will be the result ?? I appreciate your help in advance. Thanks.

Nov 6th: Application submission
7th: Letter to set up Biometrics appointment
21st: Biometrics submission (didn't have any near me till that date)
27th: Biometrics acceptance letter and few minutes later got refusal letter stating below:

• I am not satisfied that you will leave Canada at the end of your stay as a temporary resident, as stipulated in paragraph 179(b) of the IRPR, based on your immigration status.
• I am not satisfied that you will leave Canada at the end of your stay as a temporary resident, as stipulated in paragraph 179(b) of the IRPR, based on the purpose of your visit.

E-mailed them right away, attaching Employment letter, Mortgage documentation, paystubs and 797.

28th: New application submission with same documentation and additional above in the morning.
Same day by afternoon, received a message asking to send Passport and also that the new application will be discarded.

Will send the Passport and other docs to VFS tomorrow.

Glad to see so many positive experience.

My biometrics is finished with VFS and there is a request to send the passport to VFS LA. I want to understand if the original passport means the latest unexpired passport or do they mean both expired and unexpired passport which we have to send together?

Oct 20: Online application submission (with all the necessary and optional documents sought by Canada.ca website)
Oct 21: submission confirmed by onlineservices-servicesenligne.cic.gc.ca
Oct 21: Biometrics invitation
Nov 04: Biometrics submission at local USCIS center (there were no appointments between Oct 21 through Nov 04 available at my local USCIS office for 10printing)
Nov 06: request to submit passport
Nov 07: passport sent to VFS global office in Los Angeles
Nov 14: got my passport back in my hand

Please remember to send the transmission fees in money order and please send all the documents requested (consent forms -2x, IRCC letter confirmation and return label) and that should really expedite your process.

All of my process took less than 20 business days; bravo IRCC and VFSglobal.

Hi, my parents applied for their canadian tourist visa online. The main applicant received the biometrics letter but there was no letter for the other applicant. Has this happened to anybody before? what are the next steps?
