  1. Hi All,

    I have applied Canada Temporary Visitor Visa of my mother in law from cic online account on 13 March. We haven't received any update after acknowledge receipt on 14th March and application is in below status-

    We tried to reach out to IRCC but received below update from CPC-CTD-Ottawa. Can you please help me to understand where my mother in law's application status.

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    Your file is currently under review and requires additional verifications. As a result, the assessment period will be outside of our posted processing times.

    Unfortunately at this time we are not able to determine when your application will be finalized, but our office will contact you as soon as all verifications are completed, or if any additional information or documents are required.

    For those who are in possession of their passports and have an urgent need to travel outside of Canada:

    Please note that should your application be approved while you are abroad, you will be provided with instructions on how to submit your passport to the nearest Canadian visa office serving the country you are visiting.

    Do not submit your passport until you have received correspondence from IRCC that your application has been approved and you are requested to submit your passport.

    We thank you for your patience. In order to efficiently process requests, we will not reply to duplicate emails.
