    CAIRO VISA OFFICE

    Hi there, many different aspects are taken into account regarding the application itself, to the circumstances and possible red flags (as well as if all fees were paid at once)when trying to figure out processing times. There are no real rules and seem to be exceptions to any that are in place...

    CAIRO VISA OFFICE

    When our application was sent in it jumped from 16 months to 19. They apparently have reorganized things to catch up on back log. Ours took 6 months from start to finish. We talked to people on here that had been waiting MUCH longer and my husband even landed before some had heard back. It's...

    CAIRO VISA OFFICE

    To be honest, it's pretty sexist. If your a man and marry a younger woman is more likely to be accepted. In our case I'm older by ten years and it did take some work to jump that hurdle in both our application and the interview. Every case is different, yes it could be looked at negatively...

    CAIRO VISA OFFICE

    Even after being told he approved they did not take my husbands passport either, I wouldn't be worried in that respect.

    For adding new born baby with sponsorship application (during process)

    Hello, congrats on the new baby! If one parent is a Canadian citizen already then the baby will automatically be Canadian as well. You can notify the visa office of the birth but you will not need to add him or her to the application. You will need to apply for a birth certificate and Canadian...

    QUESTION AFTER LANDING

    No, I know all I need it the number, I have not had the card itself since 2004 or somewhere in that time frame. Just never bothered to replace it as I had/have the number memorized...anyhoo..Guess it all boils down to money as you stated. However they do (or did as the case may be) charge for...
