    VFS New York Processing Delays

    You are not alone. There is a bunch of us here who are endlessly waiting to hear back. I have tried to reach out to IRCC NY (Canadian Consulate) and they said (from what I understood from their reply) that they are waiting for CPC Ottawa to finalize the processing. I have sent a Web Form to CPC...

    NY VAC - Processing Timeline/Delays

    True. I’m afraid that upcoming Memorial Day holiday will cause further ripple effects causing more delays. @jenpie any updates from you side today?

    NY VAC - Processing Timeline/Delays

    True and honestly, it is quite unacceptable that they keep the original passports in their possession for around a month. My passport reached them on 28th April. No updates since then.

    NY VAC - Processing Timeline/Delays

    From what I understand, RFV email is “ready to finalize/approve”. Once we get the counterfoil then only our application is marked approved.

    NY VAC - Processing Timeline/Delays

    Canadian Consulate in New York finally replied to my email today. They said that the application is still under processing with CPC Ottawa. I think that until CPC Ottawa finalizes the application, IRCC NY does not start processing the passports with a counterfoil stamp. This is testing my...

    NY VAC - Processing Timeline/Delays

    Nothing from my side as well. I called IRCC NY today and they said that they only help Canadian Citizens over phone, and asked me to submit a web form. Here we go, full circle again!

    NY VAC - Processing Timeline/Delays

    Try sending an email to CPC Ottawa (the email ID you got in your PPR email), it may help? I tried it, they auto-replied saying we have a huge volume of applications so we may not reply your email. They gave a link to check current processing times for IRCC New York but that link ends up in a...

    NY VAC - Processing Timeline/Delays

    Nothing yet. I called them on the phone number but learned that we need to send a Web Form. I sent a Web Form for now. The automated reply asked to wait for 28 business days to hear back from them. At this time, I am tired of doing all this. I’m just going to wait another week and see how it...

    Confusion about how to send PPR documents to New York VO

    Agreed. It just feels abnormally late. When I applied for a Temporary Resident Visa last year, it just took 1 day for IRCC LA to issue a counterfoil. Let’s see, I will continue to wait and post here once I hear back from IRCC.

    Confusion about how to send PPR documents to New York VO

    Folks who got their COPR and counterfoil stamped in the passport - how much time does it take for IRCC NY to stamp the passport? My passport reached IRCC NY more than two weeks ago and I have not received any updates on it since then. I am getting a little anxious about it now.

    Confusion about how to send PPR documents to New York VO

    Unfortunately, I do not know because I never had this situation. But, you will find several threads on this forum talking about tracking for applications for primary applicants and their dependents. If not, you can talk to the VAC via their Chat option. It’s the fastest option to get hold of a...

    Confusion about how to send PPR documents to New York VO

    You also receive another update from IRCC (Consulate) once they scan your package, saying something like “Your application, tracking ID NUMBER has been received and is under process at the IRCC Office on DATE” It looks like IRCC NY office is super busy and taking a couple of weeks to finalize...

    Confusion about how to send PPR documents to New York VO

    Answering your questions below: 1. I think that you do not need to waste a photo. You can write the details on both photos. I did too and VFS VAC accepted both photos without any issues. 2. Details about SMS service is on the Additional Services page. I’m not sure if you need to send the money...

    Confusion about how to send PPR documents to New York VO

    Congratulations! My passport is also with IRCC NY for more than a week now and was wondering what is happening, freaking out a little bit. Thanks for sharing your timeline. Looks like they are taking their own sweet time.

    NY VAC - Processing Timeline/Delays

    Thank you all. I tried the chat service and they asked me send an email to escalations.canny@vfsglobal.com. However, I received an email from VFS before I could send the escalation email asking me to send missing documents. I had proactively sent the documents in a separate FedEx package a day...
