Any movement at Winnipeg visa office?
Nothing for me after ADR submitted. I submitted documents on January 4, it was uploaded immediately and I got the email " we are reviewing your documents". Since then no update. I thought it was a good sign that my documents were uploaded immediately but looks like I have to go back to the waiting game. Very frustrating
