This is not an emotional analysis but I throughly go through all the threads and
Concluded with all my open observation that LVO is very biased, prejudice and very critic towards Pakistani applicants. Specially if you see
Applicants from India , Philpinos
and Bangalies then you will find
Out that their processing is much faster , rejection ratio is much lesser and issuance of visas are very higher . There are many factors but my
Personal opinion is this that due to our internal situation we are
Under red flag.
Pl. don't consider me wrong but I don't see any point in making such analysis because even if that is true what can we do to change somebody's opinion except for changing our own conduct to make them think otherwise. I hope you understand what I mean.
Dear adanibaba, I do not agree with your analysis. LVO is not at all biased, in fact they are very helpful to all candidates without considering their religion or nationality or colour. One incident will give you the inside of their work-style.
One of my Pakistani friends had applied under 0213 NOC in April 2010 thru CIO NS and then he moved to other country. He didn't look at his file curiously and didn't hear from CIO or London VO at all for next 9 months. In June 2011, he got an email from CIO that his fee would be refund as he didn't submit his entire set of docs to LVO in allotted 120 days. I remember, when he got his fee back he was very much upset and he contacted many of Canadian solicitors for legal help. All of them informed him that file is CLOSED and it can't be opened again. Only one lawyer had asked him that he will charge CAD$6,000 to pursue his case to Federal Court. This was too much amount & my friend lost hope. His last sentence was that, “Allah had written down like that fate for me and I am going to accept it.”
I advised him to escalate this to LVO Program Manager and request them to reconsider his case. After exchange of few emails, even with First Secretary at LVO....., he realized that nothing will happen. When he finally wrote to London Program Manager, one fine evening after 6 months of getting fee refund, in Jan 2012 LVO has reopened his closed file.
This true incident will tell you that LVO staff is not at all biased towards Pakistanis or Muslims or their situation. They look at your docs professionally and that's all!
