I applied walk-in at BLS Brampton on 11th Nov for an entry VISA, and the update I see on the consulate site is that VISA was granted but not printed. Anyone knows how long does it take to print? Is there a way to pick up the visa from CGI Toronto?

It took 2 days for me...when I asked the customer care it takes 7-10 days to reach finally... whereas postal cannot be picked from centre

Was planning on it but they take walk-ins only via appointments (from 16th Nov) and that is hard to book.
Try for daily walk-in appointment..if it's tough to get,and if you don't have time,postal s better..but postal is based on luck 2.5 weeks to 1 month.. my nov10 walk-in has been granted and printed waiting for transit to BLS and to home .
Whereas my postal nov12 is still in application generated situation,expecting for consulate atleast by tmrw r Monday..

Am on the same boat...I don't understand what they are trying to say..when I called the customer care,he dint give me proper answer that I could understand..he was saying we can pick up postal applications becos the centre is different from walk-in..I told him my postal app went to BLS Brampton where they accept walk ins also..he said no u cant pick up..lemme know ..I want to pick up my walk in passport..and if my postal gets processed and printed before my travel,I want to pick up asap

No!!!! the status now on BLS is - "In Transit from Consulate General to BLS Centre".
God knows why it takes more than 4 frckin days to send the passport from one place to another in the same damn city. I'm just in praying mode right now!! Fingers crossed!
When did your passport came after status changed to ‘processed and printed’?
