Exactly, I do not have any hopes that an officer will call me. I might be on a list that they lost. I just want the online booking system to open.I can imagine the anxiety. I hope they start with Surrey tomorrow and call you immediately. This is unbelievable. There can't be that many applicants on Surrey. I say open up the online booking so we can all book
That's bizarre. I just asked to go wherever the earliest appointments were and it was no issue. Throughout the biometrics side of this process, the information you get totally differs depending on the SC agent or IRCC agent you get, the time of day you call, perhaps placement of the sun/moon, the weather in New Zealand...I asked the lady on the phone to book me for the soonest available appointment at any location and she straight out lied to me. She said, and I quote, "Yes, November 17th will be it, there's no other appointments available elsewhere before then". This was at 1 27pm today and now I can see others getting booked at various other locations earlier than my appointment that were called after.
This whole process has highlighted the sheer incompetence of Service Canada and mismanagement of the process by IRCC. That's the last I'll say of it as I try and remain positive and thankful that at least I have a confirmed appointment now.
Here's hoping you all get your calls soon so you can be put out of your misery!
I did. They just told me to wait. They said as your spouse is in India, this might be that reason of delay in calling you but just wait! So tired of waiting!Have you tried calling ircc recently to get an update on biometrics situation? I have tried calling them multiple times but I haven't been able to get through
actually its not too hard to get the test done in 3 days before your flight now. you can go to the drive through testing site and the result is usually available in 1-2 days.How did you manage to get a air ticket and get Covid test done in time. Amazing! I was actually planning the same thing before my call...
I am regretting saying that I didn't work in New West during the week and that location would be more convenient for me than DTgave my biometrics today at new west, it was very quick took only 10 minutes, I did no see anybody else for an appointment while i was there
