dispatched passport

  1. "Your processed passport has been dispatched from the Canada Visa Office and sent to VAC"

    Hi guys. Does this message usually means approval or rejection? Any ideas?
  2. Because of the word "processed" I am thinking approved, but maybe not! The lingo here is sometimes hard to decipher. But it means that there was a decision made on your application, so if you want to know for sure maybe you can call CIC directly or the VAC?
  3. Neither CIC nor VAC would be able to tell anything more than the "dispatched passport" status.

    There's no way of knowing if the application was approved until the processed passport is received
  4. Hey Bryanna!

    I think I'll be in the same boat in a few weeks and would like some clarification on that if you don't mind! We applied for a TRV at a VAC here in Guatemala and handed in our application in person with original passport. They told us they would call us once they receive our passport back from the Embassy but could not tell us if we were approved or not, which I found odd. So if I understand correctly, we will know when we pick up our passport? If approved, there will be a stamp or something? And if denied, a letter of explanation?
    There has to be a way to know before actually picking up our passport, no?

    Thank you!! :)
  5. Hi CaroM8,

    I do not know how it works in Guatemala.... otherwise it is possible to get email updates when a decision is made.... or when the processed passport is dispatched to the VAC..... or for a small fee, the processed passport can be couriered to your residence. It seems like you'll be waiting by the phone for the VAC to let you know if they have received your processed passport :)

    The VAC is only a collection center acting on behalf of the Canadian visa office. They do not influence the decision process in any way.

    True for all questions

    It's a guessing game until one actually gets the processed passport :)

    Hope you get the TRV soon :)

  8. Hey guys!

    I just received the same message! "Your processed passport has been dispatched...etc". We applied last Friday (March 13) and got this message today (March 19), so quick! But no clue if it was approved or not, thoughts??? Until we can go to the city to pick up the passport I guess we won't know for sure..
