    I was initially going to fly Krasnodar-Istanbul-Toronto with Turkish Airlines. A one-way flight in economy was around 800 CAD. But by the time I got my passport and COPR back, prices rocketed to like $1500 if I wanted to fly before mid-January. Christmas holidays and all... Regarding the time...

    So I was looking at all sorts of flights from Moscow to Toronto and decided to check Austrian Airlines. On their website you can buy flights for practically all Star Alliance member airlines. I selected return flights, because they were cheaper than a single flight! And as I was looking though...

    It was Ramin F, who said their case was unique :) Ours was as common and typical as the come: no kids, no medical/legal/criminal complications, no divorces, nothing. Maybe the age difference (husband sponsor is 8-9 years older than me), but other than that - typical case. I think my case just...

    At last. I was expecting another daily nagging call with VFS today, but I just got a call from the courier, who said he was coming in about 20 minutes to drop off the docs. Honestly, after all the ways VFS disappointed me, I was half expecting to receive "someone else's documents" haha. But no...

    I noticed that tooo! And what's more, I found flights with Lufthansa where it's actually convenient to fly business class, because it includes 2 suitcases and business lounge with free food and drinks :cool: with economy, I will be paying extra for a second suitcase, and loads for meals and...

    Oh boy! Long story short (a very long story filled with rage lol): it was at VFS for like 2 weeks already... When I found that out from contacting the consulate, I sent a looooong passive aggressive email to VFS asking them to organise themselves and sort their stuff out. They called me the next...

    Thanks :) I contacted the embassy too, and they asked me for my VFS tracking number. It's 5pm now, so I doubt they'll respond before tomorrow. I don't know ALL the options haha. I got PPR by GCKey only. It's good to list the different options so that the next "generation" of applicants can find...

    Thanks! I did earlier today, but all they said was that the time required for the visa stamping and stuff depends on the consulate/embassy, so they can't consult me on that. And when I asked if their support team can check internally on the whereabouts of my docs, they said that I have to...

    Still nothing on my end! Last thing VFS emailed me on my Friday saying they've transferred my payment details to the appropriate department. But no information regarding the whereabouts of my passport. Sigh. I emailed them back last night, asking about the status of my documents because they're...

    Handed my passport at VFS in Moscow on November 14, but I have yet to receive an update on the VFS tracker lol and they told me to wait until the tracker tells me the docs are ready for pickup. Since I had to fly back home today, I just paid for the courier service and I'll have them send it to...

    From what I know, you get it along with your passport when you send it in for the PPR thing. I should be getting my passport in the next few days, so I'll get back to you on that if no one else knows :p

    There's no guarantee, but they might keep it in Mississauga VO. Lots of indian applicants get sent to Mississauga VO, even if the spouse is in another country. And I see that Mississauga is relatively fast, so fingers crossed that your app stays there and gets processed soon!!

    Hey guys, I got PPR today! I'm going to submit my passport at VFS on Thursday. I know a sponsor from Quebec who applied in December 2018. They got AOR1, SA in early February, then CSQ around a month later. I'm not sure why it took so long for you. Maybe they were overwhelmed with the number of...
