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?

Dear Community Members,

I had applied for tourist visa with my parents from USA. Following are the timeline:

Application submitted: 6th Aug 19
Biometrics Collection Letter: 7th Aug 19
Biometrics Completed: 21st Aug 19

For both of my parents its showing below when I goes to: Check full application status > View submitted application or upload documents.
Family Members

You have told us that additional people will come to Canada with you. Please attach their documents below.

Now I am confused for below reasons:

1) I had already uploaded the mentioned document when I submitted the application.
2) On my parents' dashboard table its still showing "We do not need additional documents" under "Review of additional documents"

So my question is what to do, do they need additional documents or not. If yes, then how to submit since there is no option to upload it as I had already uploaded the asked document with original submission.

Thanks a lot for helping hand.

Aug 11 - I applied for myself and my wife
Aug 12 - Got request for Biometrics on Aug 12 (both)
Aug 13 - Provided Biometrics (both)
Aug 13 - Received Biometrics (both)
Aug 15 - Passport request for mine, still waiting for my wife's

I think I will wait for her application approval as well and then send our passports in one envelope.

Can I send only one return shipping label? They should mail our processed passports together.

Aug 1st- Request for Passport
Aug 5th- Passport Shipped overnight
Aug 6th- Reached VAC
Aug 9th- Processed enveloped dispatched from IRCC
Aug 12th- Processed envelope has been received and is ready for pickup by UPS.

The passport has not been shipped yet and no updates on the UPS tracking number too. Checking with the VAC on chat they mention that they are facing some high volumes and it should be shipped soon.
Anyone got their passport shipped in this week?
