Does anyone have contact number for BLS Surrey that works, I sent postal application on Nov 02 and BLS tracking still says no records found. Tickets booked for travel in 2 weeks, not sure if they will send it in time.

Go there early around 8 am and get the token number, so u can get In same day and ask them to take ur file out and submit at counter same day , then u might be able to get in 2 weeks, that's what I did . I sent my postal application on 21 Oct and I went to bls on 9nov walk in and submitted same day and I got my visa approved yesterday .I am getting tomorrow my passport.

Walk-in application for tourist visa @ surrey on Nov 10th. Still "under processing" at the consulate. I am travelling on Dec 1. I requested for postal return service. I guess I will do a walk-in to collect my passport if I need to get it before my travel date.

My status changed from "under processing" to "granted not printed" and later to "granted and printed" yesterday. The status on BLS is "In Transit from Consulate General to BLS Centre".

Walk-in Winnipeg BLS 8th November
Still "under processing" at the consulate.
My travel date to India is March 2023 although I need my passport back before 3rd week of Dec to travel to US.
I asked for 5 years multiple but anxious to know what I am going to get.

Got our passports from bls surrey although we selected to get it delivered to home.. it was coming ready to dispatch from tuesday and in lineup i saw people whose status was ready to dispatch from last 2 weeks so i would suggest to everyone to go and pick from BLS instead of waiting at home..we waited for 8 hours in line up..its worst experience
