Hello House,

Please I just obtained my study permit and I want my husband and son to come visit me in Canada for say one month for emotional support and all.

Please can you assist with the proof of funds needed and necessary documentation.

Your response is highly appreciated.

Hi Maziude,

Did you send your mum's passport via UPS or DHL to VFS Lagos? I sent my mum's own via UPS to VFS Lagos on the 12th and it showed that it was delivered to VFS on the 15th of this month. I have no way of knowing if VFS has sent it out. I am worried cos the 30 days timeline given by the request letter is fast approaching. How many days from when you submitted through courier (if you used one) till when you saw the update on the IRCC account? Thanks.


maziude:
Update:

We sent mumsy PP last week Friday to Lagos VFS.

It got there 2 days ago.

Today we got an email that it arrived at VFS Abuja and another email that it was being sent to IRCC. 1 hour later we got an email that the passport is with IRCC and under processing.

I guess, Lagos is backed up, hence the need for Abuja.


UpDate: I just checked gckey now, there is a document number and expiry date. I guess passport is stamped.

When we sent to VFS using UPS on a Friday. It got there on Monday. VFS sent us a mail with a tracking number that they received it that same Monday and are processing it for dispatch.
On Wednesday, I tracked it and found that it was sent to VFS Abuja. Those guys received it on Friday and sent to Embassy that same Friday.

I checked her cic account that Friday, her account updated with the visa number and shows approved.

So it took a week from when we sent to VFS Lagos for the approval to show on her account.

My mum just received her passport back today ( UPS laziness to locate her address for 1 week, lol).


Go to VFS website and click on the chat button. It is faster and they respond sharply.

Hello,

I want to apply for TRV for my mum. Will she be able to go for biometrics immediately or VAC are not attending to TRV applicants? Pre-COVID, I know you can actually go for biometrics two or three days after AOR.

I'm not in a hurry to bring her in but just want to throw in her application until IRCC gets back to their normal self
Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by Anndav: 7:34am On Mar 23
Yes , but she has to book an appointment using VFS website for biometric

Who exactly asked you to pay such an amount? Canadian biometrics is $85 CAD.(less than N40,0000.)

PS: All those booking/traveling agents are just scammers looking for who to exploit.

Hi,

Does anyone have an idea of how long it takes from when VFS Lagos sends you a notification that your passport has been dispatched to the IRCC office to when you actually get an update on your GCKey account please? So, basically, time from VFS dispatch till IRCC gets your passport. Mine was sent on Tuesday, tracking still shows in transit.

Thank you.

It depends on which office it was sent to. My mum’s passport was sent from VFS Lagos to VFS Abuja then to IRCC. It took roughly 5-7 days for it to get to IRCC Abuja. The same morning it got there was when her cic account was updated as approved. Also the passport was dispatched back to VFS that same day.
Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by Newmum0615: 3:09pm On Mar 26
Thank you.

On Tuesday I got this email: Your application, tracking ID No. xxxxxxxx is in transit and has been dispatched to the IRCC Office through the Canada Visa Application Centre, Lagos Office, on 3/23/2021 2:26:10 PM for processing

After no update on my account, I sent a mail on Thursday, I got this response this morning: Your application, tracking ID No. xxxxxx has been received at the Canada Visa Application Centre, Abuja OC on 3/26/2021 10:46:57 AM and is in transit to the IRCC Office in Abuja OC for processing.

So I was confused on what both mails meant. Does it mean, they sent the passport from Lagos VFS to Abuja VFS after the initial mail said it has already been sent to IRCC Lagos? I chatted with an agent and the agent said the passport was sent to the Abuja embassy. I don't know which information to go with now. Is Canada Visa Application Centre, Abuja OC the same as IRCC Office in Abuja? There is no update on the GCKey account yet. Is this the type of mail you got?

There won’t be any update until IRCC receives it. Visa application centre is same as VFS.

When it gets to VFS Abuja, they would send it to IRCC. You should see update on gckey account next week.


And don’t worry about the deadline, like I said earlier it automatically renews for another 30/60/90 days due to covid.

Chillax.
