Hello Team,
I have submitted my wife's application for a visitor visa online and had paid the fees immediately. The application submission confirmation was received with the receipt number immediately.

However it is past 2 days and we haven't received the Biometric collection letter. I was expecting it to arrive within 24 hours (it happened to my application last week).

There was an email sub: Your application(Vxxxxxxx) has been updated exactly after 24 hours but there was no change in the online application. No UCI number, no new message in inbox, no letter.

Can someone please help as we are against the clock? And if there is a way to find out what's going on. Esp after that email didn't update anything on the online application.

I have applied for Canada visitor visa on 16 Aug 2019 offline. Today I received my passport having a letter on which it is written that important information has been sent to you by email to the email provided by you in your application.
But, I don't received any email yet.
Guys tell me what I have to do now????
I want to know the reason for my refusal. As both me and my husband applied together on same sponsorship. My husband got 6 months single entry visa, and in my passport there is a letter stating above.
We are worried. How we can know the reason for my refusal, as I have to apply again.
Guys suggest me, now but I have to do to know my application's refusal reason

Hi Everyone,

I want to know which Toronto location is better for first time H1B stamping. If there are any dates available for this month. I need to get my visa done as soon as possible. I was wondering if anyone was in this situation and any suggestions would help.

Hi All,
I submitted an online application to get visitor visa for myself and my wife on Aug 20th. I have not received any communication from the IRCC or the Canadian visa systems other then acknowledging the receipt of the application. Are others also seeing the same thing? I am applying from Pacific Northwest and would assume that the application would go to Los Angeles.

Anyone else seeing similar behavior? Do we know on what is the current SLA?

Hi Guys,

I had my transit visa approved online on July24 and they had requested passport to be stamped. I sent my passport on Aug3rd, till now it is stuck at VFS center and i did not recieve any email update or tracking number yet. Then i sent an email got the tracking number and escalated my case and it is been 5 days no response yet. I have my flight to catch on Sep21st but my passport is still not reached the embassy. This is a total nightmare for a transit visa process, and being without passport for so many days without knowing the whereabouts. Is there anything i can do to expedite this process? I am also thinking if there is option to log official complaint so that it does not happen to others.

Hi guys!
I had applied for my Visitor Visa in the US. I am from Argentina.

This is my timeline:

Application submitted 31July
Biometrics request 13 August
Biometrics done 28 August

Still no news. Someone had the same problem? I sent the web form yesterday, attaching my contract, which started last week. Does it take longer because I am not a US citizen?
