Thats is strange.. Cos I thought since u r in govt. job that made it fast.. But not really hey.. I think they aasign a number of files to each VO and some are lazy and call in sick and others are really good at their work.. just a guess..
who knows... Atleast I know they didnt ignored the dec and jan like they did with oct applicants.... somehitng positive..
That is true. It largely depends on the VO and his/her mind. I wouldn't call a VO just lazy; he/she may be more keen on security checks and demands additional docs at the last stage while rest probably don't care much. It's again your luck we're talking about.
Going back to my colleague, if we sample out just 2 of us, everything is same. Our religion is same but from different countries. Among the muslim countries, some are like RED ALERT
for mostly US & Canada. Fortunately, Bangladesh (where I'm from) isn't one of them. My university's Int'l Student Centre
has always listed those countries for TRV processing time delay (http://www.uwindsor.ca/isc/trv
) in order to let the Int'l students know what they are dealing with when they apply to extend visas. I don't want to paste them here; instead inserted the link for interested people.
Another thing could be my wife. She is a doctor and considered IMG here in Canada. Since Canada is always open to doctors for immigration, she might have played a role in expediting our processing. Just my wild thought!
