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?

Visitor Visa with invitation letter from elder sibling residing in Canada.

Application and bio-metrics submitted: 16 September 2019
Temporarily got back back passport: 24 October 2019
Received message to submit passport: 27 October 2019
Re-submitted passport back to VFS: 27 October 2019

Inquired application status from IRCC webform with a reply "our office has not yet received the necessary clearance."

Have valid US visa, traveled in the past to US, Belgium, Spain, Hungary, Australia, UAE, Bahrain, South Korea.

Such a long delay in processing made my trip just stressful instead of any excitement.

passportproblems     10/21/2019 17:48 PM

I planned a vacation to Canada, leaving on November. I applied for a tourist visa some time ago, with the timeline as follows:

Application Submitted: Oct 1
Biometrics Submission at NYC office: Oct 4

After I submitted my biometrics I still haven't received any kind of decision, it's now Oct 21 and my trip is coming up. Apparently even if it's approved I still have to submit my physical passport for processing, which might take up to 10 business days. I'm really worried and I don't know what I can do because the customer service is super unhelpful plus the website help portal is basically useless.

Has anyone tried visiting the NY VAC office in person? Does it help?

Had planned a vacation to Canada with my parents. Applied for tourist visa mid september, hoping it is enough to get processing done considering advertised processing time.

Application submitted: Sep 16
After multiple emails,
Biometric request letter: Oct 11
Biometric submission: Oct 11
Passport request: Oct 15
Passport mailed: Oct 16
Passport reached IRCC: Oct 17

Our flight is tonight, Oct 21 - there is no response yet. I flew down to Los Angeles VFS center to collect passport in person just in case IRCC dispatches our passport. But there is no response yet at 12:30pm. Really not happy with the slow processing of the visa. It upsets plans and also causes so much anxiety for travel. You start wondering why did you even pick Canada as a destination.

Still waiting at the VFS center today. Please apply atleast 45-60days in advance.
