My application is with consulate for 9 days now ( counting only Monday - Friday ) from nov 30th n no updates yet :(. I am so stressed, my flight is on 23rd
I have flight on 26 dec. Brampton n winnipeg files are much faster. I am so stressed. I don’t know what they are doing and why they are slow. Generally it took 5-6 days at consulate for visa printing as per previous conversation at the threads. Now god know what is happening.

Hello,
Its been so frustrating dealing with this. I originally had tickets to India booked on the 6th of December. I applied for my Visa via postal to BLS surrey on the 27th October, it reached the office on 31st October. after that it was a whirlwind of calls and emails to get them to open my file. they finally opened my file on the 18th of November. Ever since that its been 'Processing at the consulate'. Does anyone else have a similar situation where it has been at the consulate for over 2 weeks? I am looking to postpone my tickets now but have know idea how long i should postpone it for.
Did you get your visa?

Hi, I am looking for advice on how to deal with the Vancouver Consulate General. Our tourist visa application reached BLS on Nov 02, 2022. The application reached the Consulate General on November 16, 2022. Our son got the visa and his passport is on it's way back. On November 29, 2022 the consulate emailed asking for Form A because we are provincial government employees. We emailed the from the same day. In the email, the consulate indicated that now the processing time will be 90 days. Our tickets are booked for December 13th. There was no mention of this form on the application process. We have attempted to contact the consulate on every available channel but they do not reply. Our only hope is booking a ticket to Vancouver and going to the consulate and asking for help there. Can anyone please advise if this is a good idea? Similarly if someone has any contacts or have tips to deal with the consulate? Thank you in advance! Looking forward to helpful suggestion.
Hi kuwar did you manage to have this sorted?

from my observation so far on the forums, its taking 10 working days in the consulate for almost everyone to get the visa processed. So I was hoping for an update today tbh. I also applied from bls ottawa, I live in Montreal. I will see what they tell me about this tomorrow. I hope you get your visa processed very soon

I wonder how long it will take for them to send application back to consulate . So far , I guess I cant completely relax till passport is in my hands. The bls website still says processing at high commission
