I am an Indian National and have applied to Canada visitor Visa online.
I received a letter to submit my passport within a week of application submission.
However, I never received a letter for biometrics. My husband who applied at the same time (Indian), has received a letter to submit his biometrics.
I have tried contacting IRCC and Los Angeles VAC several times, however never received a response.
Has anyone faced a similar situation?

I ve applied study visa online on 13th may, gave biometrics on 21 may, confirmed next day itself. Since then background verification is pending. 18th august my classes starts and I ve been waiting since 2 months havent got any revert. However the processing time is 4 weeks officially but here its been 9-10 weeks. Filled the webform but no response. Such a disappointment. Can someone help what needs to be done?

Submitted online? 07/17/19
Biometrics required: 07/18/19
Biometrict submited: 07/19/19 (Walk in in Oakland CA)

It already shows my biometrics on my application but I still did not get the letter for passport.

I have to travel in two weeks. Very concerned about it. I will update here soon.

Hi All

Please find my timeline below

Jul 11, 2019 - Biometrics Request for me and my wife
Jul 12, 2019 morning - Biometrics completed at USCIS location
Jul 12, 2019 afternoon - Biometrics information updated in both the applications

Since then the application status is shown as Submitted and no more communication has happened.
What will be the next step?
When can I expect the next step to happen?

My program starts on August 28. Can I make it?

Hi All,

Please find my timelines below.

June 25th - Applied online.
June 26th - request for Biometrics
Biometrics - completed on 7/12
passport request letter on 7/16.

My visa application filed by my company attorney. Could you please help me to know the process for visa stamping and answers to below questions.

1) To pay visa stamping fee, do I need to register online or can I pay directly or need to send money order.
2) My daughter is a USA citizen and 6 months old. I don't have a passport request letter for her from IRCC. Is there any different process for minor USA citizen.

Hi all,

This is my first time applying for a TRV from Canada. I hold a valid F1 visa (US) and wasn’t expecting it to take so long, since the online processing time was 14 days when I applied, and I thought my case was so easy to process, since I was just invited to attend a conference there.

Here’s my timeline:
July 2nd: Submitted online
July 3rd: biometrics requested and done the same day
No update since then...

I’m so confused. In my account, it still says “we are checking your eligibility, etc.” Even “we do not need your fingerprints...” Would that ever change as they process the application? I’ve noticed a “profile updated” status around July 10th, but then it changed back to “submitted”. Are they actually looking at it? Or they just opened it and forgot about it???

I tried to call them through any number I could possibly find, but it seems that they automatically recognize and block the US numbers. I also submitted webforms and got zero response.

I had my flight booked already (July 31st—August 8th). So I’m getting really anxious now. Is there any chance I could get my visa on time? Has anyone who applied early July received their passport request yet?
