    Experience Letter - Drivers Licence - Ontario - Greater Toronto Area - DL

    My wife is from Uganda and I inquired from MTO and they stated that all my wife needs is her driver's license (from Uganda even if it's expired) along with an additional supporting government (Canada) ID and a letter of authentication (from the country's embassy/consulate in Canada) Once...

    Anyone with experience how we can get the US transit visa for my wife? Apparently, flying through the US with only a 2hr layover, she will need to pay $160 for it. Also, apparently, they will check to see if she has the visa with her before she boards. Has anyone come across this before?

    Update.....the visa they give you to land depends on your medical! My wife's medical is expiring on the 28th of August and they have given us a visa expiry of 28th of August with NO EXCEPTION and NO EXTENSION, even if we redo the medical, we will have to resubmit everything! So the visa shows...

    Make sure when you send your passport in, call back within 2 weeks. Mine was sent in on 4th of August and today (19th) I called in and they confirmed that it is available for pickup. All the best folks!

    I don't think you should worry about where it is sent. To my experience and others, it seems like transferring to the VO in TZ has been positive. It's a new office which means that they have split the workload in half between Tanzania and Kenya. That's my opinion

    Yup, sent it in last Thursday and they said in 14 days (not sure business days or just days in general) Hoping by end of the month! Anyone know if I'm able to track my passport? I was given a tracking ID but the VFSGlobal website is for providing application tracking, not passports

    Seriously you have to pay for a visa EVEN if it's a 2 hr layover? Does anyone know if going through Egypt for 18hr layover will require us (Canadians AND Ugandan) to pay for a visa?

    VSF is the best and you can track it also. Costs about $80? Hopefully those of you who are waiting will also get yours very soon! All the best!

    From what I know, our medical does expire on Aug.28 but our constituency believes that IRCC must have extended it a bit so in case there would be delays in submitting the passport. He (constituency) knows that once the passport is sent back to us, it does not depend on the expiry of the medical...

    For those who were approved and booked their tickets, did you book from a specific site on discounted fares? I have found Orbitz and flighthub.com. Do you guys know anymore?

    Medical Expiring of Spouse

    My wife applied for her PR in December 2015 and received good news that it is almost complete (July 29, 2016) but only requires us to submit her passport. Her medical expires August 29, 2016. I don't think the passport will take more than a month to arrive at the Visa Office for the stamp but my...

    Thanks all! I hope this has encouraged you all as it seems that it does not take THAT long, at least for us it was the same amount of time as waiting for our first born to leave the mother's womb ;D 9 MONTHS! Ok, so I heard from my consultant and another immigration lawyer that even if her...

    No news about what they will say but my wife's medical expires end of August when they need the passport BY end of August. I'll be sending through VFS and I think that's probably the best thing to do right now as those are the instructions given to me through the letter. Guess what, THERE IS...
