You can use this link to print your appointment letter -https://www.blsindia-canada.com/appointmentbls/reprint_vac_appointment_letter.phpThanks for the information. When I checked I saw an opening at BLS Toronto. I followed the process and it looked I got an appointment booked, but I did not receive any confirmation email. I'm not sure how to confirm my appointment now.
I am out of the loop with the current process. Is it appointment only or can you walk-in? For walk-in, what is a realistic time to go in the morning? Is it Brampton only or Toronto as well?
How much is the courier service vs. in-person? I called the BLS office but the CSR was not giving a clear answer. It's like he was trying to sell me on the courier option.
So my application was rejected on Dec 3rd, saying that the address in current address section and permanent address section should match with ID. My question to them was "why do you have 2 sections if you want both the addresses to be filled same". they dint have any answer for that.I have sent the Tourist Visa Application to BLS.
Delivered - dec 28
Updated received - Dec 29
Nothing after that... Waiting for an update (dispatched to Consulate)
Did Bls rejected it or consulate ? Which office was it ?So my application was rejected on Dec 3rd, saying that the address in current address section and permanent address section should match with ID. My question to them was "why do you have 2 sections if you want both the addresses to be filled same". they dint have any answer for that.
After wasting 10 days, and courier money, I luckily booked appointment on Dec 5th and did a walk in application today. So, today everything was verified at the BLS Brampton and now the status says " application on the way to consulate". Hoping to get is soon !
because India doesnt apply dual citizenshipJust asking this ,so your born in India come to canada as a PR then obtain Canadian citizenship , you have to give up your Indian passport and if you want to visit India again , Canadian citizens have to apply for a Indian visa to visit , why they just dont have dual citizenship .
did you finally get your visa? and when did you receive your passport?My husband received his tourist visa today (November 29). It was printed and processed last week and then it was out for dispatch this past Friday (November 25). It was held up with Purolator due to weather, and my husband was able to stop it in Vancouver and pick it up directly from the Purolator outlet during a layover in Vancouver (we live in Saskatoon, SK).
My Tourist Visa said it was ready for pickup on Friday. I spoke with BLS yesterday and they said that it only arrived from Consulate on Monday, November 28. They told me there was a shipping delay, because I had not prepaid Purolator (this is incorrect, as I sent a prepaid Purolator return envelope and have the tracking number). They made me pay for another tracking number, so I did to avoid further delay. Today when I looked online at BLS, the tracking number for Purolator was the first one I had provided (even though they said one day earlier that they had never received a prepaid label from me). They say its out for dispatch, but Purolator shows no updates.
When my husband went directly to purolator today on his layover, the taxi driver did not have very good things to say about BLS. At one point the taxi driver said that he was even surprised that my husband got the correct passport.
I am without my passport and have a family emergency and the woman I talked to tonight at BLS kept reciting rehearsed lines and was unable to help me.
I am at the end of my rope.
