Sad news for all those (including me) who have applied for Immigration to Canada through LONDON VISA OFFICE.

The Foreign Service Officers in London Visa office (Immigration dept) have gone on strike until further notice :(

Hi Roch Khan

I feel so sorry to hear this news. I saw your posts and know you have been waiting for more than 4 years.

Hopefully after the strike, the officers will work faster than before!

Hello, I have heard from a retired immigration officer that although they're on strike, they are still turning up for work but working to rule. At least this is a bit of good news. :)

A long long time... My application was received by London nearly two and a half years ago and I haven't heard a thing since :(

Less than 5 applications per year, so processing times are not posted.
