    New Instructions from IRCC for applications before 7th Sep 2021

    I heard same! Although my sister has sent her passport to the Lagos VAC today (Saturday), her flight is exactly two weeks from today. Hopefully I won’t have to extend it. Has your mother-in-law submitted hers? Please let me know how her timeline goes this week :)

    Hi! Has anyone submitted their passport to VFS recently in Nigeria (Lagos or Abuja)? How long exactly did it take from when you sent it to the time you received it back in your hands?

    38 business days? That’s so unfair. Like what was the point of telling applicans 14-30 business days when you know you’re gonna be taking your sweet time. And is the last part of your message so? Was that from an official source? I’ve never heard that one before that the more they delay your...

    I think you should submit a webform to address that, no point or need to apply a third time.
