Well, for Bangladeshis, it is not valid an option anymore. The SGVO strongly recommends to use VFS. If in person, it might take more than 2 weeks and in that case (if you dont have strong logic and reasons documented) you are to stay back Singapore for those days. If you dont have relatives its expensive there. If they are not convinced enough, they will not accept the passports over the counter and will suggest to go back n use VFS. You can not be assured that they will return you in 2 weeks. Again they might decline accepting the emergency. So things are bit tricky here. According my understanding:
01. If anyone is visiting Singapore for any other issues, can take a chance requesting them to process it, backed with ur reasons, emergency etc.
02. If only for Canada visa purpose, it's better to use VFS as they might decline to accept the application.
fully agreed

Thanks for your post regarding this issue. I think we have to prepare our selves accordingly.

Just one last thing to remind you all:
Unfortunately my visa issuance took long 3 month 10 days and they have not given any reasons, what so ever. (Usual trend is 24-30 days with transit time).
I asked and they said, many external bodies n 3rd parties are involved to clear and check my information provided.
I had police clearance from Thailand and UK Scotland yard along with Bangladesh. My intuition is, they took time for rechecking my backgrounds.
Somebody else might have different views tough. This might be a reason to avoid us in person visa collection.
Cheers and Maley bari.................................. ;D

Usually 24-28 days. They won't tell you that the visa is been issued. They will say passports is been released from SGVO rather, and will take 2-3 days for transit. if the PP is at VFS you can check using the VFS tracking number which says passports ready for collection. While your E-cas states Decision made, usually and your address is changed to Toronto, ON Canada. I hope you get your passport within this weekends. they should also send you sms in your mobile, when you are to collect the PP from VFS.
Cheers and maley Bari.

It doesn't stand for anything, it's a name for a company, which processes visa for different countries around the world. Actually it's VFS Global. For Canada they process for Bangladeshi passports. Regs

Dear shumon bhai,

Congrats! I am really very happy to learn about your PR visa.
You have always been a great support to all the forum members.
Why don't we arrange a get together/ post Eid party this Friday at Bengal Gallery or somewhere nearby?
Would like to meet up before leaving for Canada.

Awaiting your feedback. Thanks!
