  1. Help please!!!

    I am a Canadian Citizen, my friends mom applied for the Visitor visa for him, she lives in the United States, and he lives in South Africa.

    He has been in both the u.s. and Canada before, and the Application was submitted February. 18/2018

    For a LONGGG time now already his application says

    - we are processing your application
    - we are reviewing whether you meet the eligibility requirements
    - no biometrics needed
    - no interview needed
    - and it is not under security or background checks

    We have been waiting 12 weeks now, so 3 months and there has been no change in his application.

    Anybody have any advice for us? If this is looking like it could be good or bad news? We are so worried for bad news and it's getting very hard and disheartening to wait this long. It's hard to not give up hope.
     
  2. If he had traveled to Canada in the last 10 years and/or has a valid US visa, he should have requested for CAN+ (expedited processing). Unfortunately, it's too late for it now.


    Your friend's mom may want to send a Case Specific Enquiry/ IRCC web form to request for an early decision:
    http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/contacts/web-form.asp

    As well as an email to the Pretoria visa office (even though it's an online application):
    Pretoria-im-enquiry@international.gc.ca
     
  3. Okay, thank you so much for your advice, i really appreciate it! The waiting period is the worst part, the fear of the unknown... I hope we can get some good news soon!
     
  4. How to apply under CAN+ , I also applied online n there was no option to chose it, i attached our usa visas and entry stamps in Travel history.
     
  5. Sent a CSE yesterday, I hope this helps us get an answer soon
     
  6. How did you send the CSE? By email or by web form?
     
  7. Through web forum
