Thanks for your quick response o. God bless you ooooo. You mean I have 30 days to submit my passport to Canadian Embassy?? wow!!!! I didnt know I would have proceed for indian medical visa. No am not staying long in India atall but am concerned is that I have paid India application fees and I was asked to go get something.. hope that application fees I paid will still be valid?? Do you have an idea?

I have read cases where the applicant sent a Case Specific Enquiry + an email on same issue and they asked the applicant to submit the passport to their embassy in the country where the applicant is currently visiting.

So you can do same. Send a Case Specific Enquiry + an email when you are ready.

Hello! I have aquestion, please.
How long the issued tourist visa is valid? I mean how much time one has to travel and use it before expired?
Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by dotcomnamenamee(m): 6:13pm On Aug 08
I have few questions to ask please:

(1) How many months visa or years Canada issue for conference?

(2) As I don't live in Nigeria but I will be in Nigeria soon, so can I apply from Nigeria and can I use some of my Nigerian documents ties?

(3) Can I apply and get a reply within 3 weeks with paper application in Nigeria?

(3) Do they issue paper application conference visa in Nigeria or London?
Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by oriazowan: 7:59pm On Aug 08
Have you tracked it with the new tracking number you were given when you submitted your passport? They wouldn’t send you a message that it is ready like in my case. I only got a counterfoil message from cic stating the validity of the visa.

Yes, I was able to track it today and it showed "still being processed ". How long did your own take? I am yet to receive counterfoil message either. Was it an email or from cic account? I Really need the passport back asap for an urgent trip.

Hello, great men and women in this forum,

I intend traveling to the UK for the first time in the month of October and immediately do a biometric for Canada visa application a day after my arrival. Does it show a sign of desperation?

It is a wise decision to do a biometric in October for a travel plan for April 2020?

Please kindly offer your candid opinion. Thanks.
Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by FYsol: 11:57pm On Aug 08
You are not too early my brother. I applied in March and got passport request in July and if you see my earlier post till now my passport is not yet returned to me. That's almost 6months. Some are lucky though they get decision early. But bottom line is October is not too early.

@bolded After arrival at where? London or back home

author=dotcomnamenamee. I have few questions to ask please:

(1) How many months visa or years Canada issue for conference? It depends on the VO.

(2) As I don't live in Nigeria but I will be in Nigeria soon, so can I apply from Nigeria and can I use some of my Nigerian documents ties? You should apply from where your ties are stronger

(3) Can I apply and get a reply within 3 weeks with paper application in Nigeria? Not sure. However summer is fully loaded and processing times is 64 days when you apply from Nigeria.

(3) Do they issue paper application conference visa in Nigeria or London? Your application may even land in France given the volume of applications this period.

I mean when i return back to Nigeria, my sweet father land.
I was recently issue the UK visa.I want to travel to ghe UK and return on the 17th Oct and have my Canada tourist visa biometric done on the 18th Oct for a possible trip April.

I can't believe it takes a whole five months (March, April, May, Jun, Jul) to determine if they will approved or refuse visa application request. I guess you may taken a full truck load of documents to them and you have lots of travel history.

Anyway, thanks for your valuable suggestion.

I heard from an unreliable source that application from Abuja center is treated/responded to faster than those coming from Lagos.

How true is that claim?

Hello,

I am aware that processing time for TRVs is getting longer in recent times, but does it change the processing times that one was given when applying?

Greetings gurus in the house. I am filling the visitor visa application online form for my wife but confused if I have to fill the two IMM5257 forms.

1 - Application Form: Application for Visitor Visa (Temporary Resident Visa) Made Outside of Canada (IMM5257)
2. Optional Documents
Schedule 1 - Application for a Temporary Resident Visa Made Outside Canada (IMM 5257).

I have read through the thread but did not see any related post. Please advice.

The first is actually imm5257e and the second is imm5257b.

There are background questions in imm5257e that requires you to fill Imm5257b if you answer yes to any of the questions.

Also there's a section that captures travel history in imm5257b.

It took exactly a week to get the passport back. I got update from cic on counterfoil then I tracked my passport and it stated ready for collection at vfs. You can call vfs to find out what is happening.?

Good day guys. I am new here my family

I applied Canadian Visit visa and I did Biometrics on April 24th, 2019 and filled as August 5th as the day of my Visa and it has elapsed. I haven't heard from them yet.

What's the probability of getting this Visa. Please I will appreciate responses.
Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by FYsol: 6:42pm On Aug 12
I have read from this platform people getting passport request even after the event has passed. I am a living example although when I noticed my initial date has passed, I booked another related appointment and I attached it using case specific web form. So if your event is flexible, you can do same. IRCC accesses your admissibility beyond your present trip. Their focus is to be sure there is a higher tie back home that will be taking you out of their country every time you visit. ABOVE IS MY MERE THOUGHT
