My parents are planning to visit Canada to see Toronto during August 2011. In the past, we appeared in person at the Buffalo Consulate and submitted the visitor visa application and we received the approval on the same day. Since we are flying from Florida and I am in the process of booking airline tickets to Buffalo, I want to make sure that timeline is sufficient. Does anyone know that the Buffalo office can process the visa applications during walk-in hours on the same day? I have emailed Buffalo, Detroit, LA, NY, Seattle and noone is polite and some office does not even respond back. I am not sure what is going on.
