Hello Everyone, Last time we called IRCC regarding our application, they mentioned that submission of webforms will only delay the progress of our application as the officer working on the case will take around 5 days to see if it is a new update and keep any action he intended to take before the form on hold. On reviewing he will again have to get back to the file and that could take time too.

Did anyone else get a similar response or experienced the delay due to webform?

New hotel quarantine rules are just a joke. Failed policies and processes. Just complete failure. Height of peak immaturity. Clowns.
I agree!
This is another way of the government to make money off the travellers. I heard it’s failing. People who are under quarantine rules are not getting food on time. No drinking water bottles except with the food.
I was reading other posts earlier in which they state that VFS is taking around 3-4 weeks to get the passport back and the government has only given 30 days to arrive in Canada.
Moreover, there is no set timeline for processing. I’ve seen files being processed from July 2020 and August 2020.
My file was received on May 25,2020. Medical and biometrics done in November 2020.
Still under process, nothing since Nov27, 2020.

Really? They are taking 3-4 weeks to dispatch pp back from embassy and 30 days to arrive? Isn’t this a shameful thing to do. Normally whatever the circumstances are it takes max week for them to send it back. Everything they pretend is just super fake corrupt and really torturing everyone. This country has no solid industry left. Salaries are declining. Everything is so immature. It’s failing overall.

Obviously no proof. Because they are not only corrupt but very secretive. But can you imagine if govt doesn’t get a cut when these noobs put a price for 1 person of a 77$ a night hotel to almost 400$ and saying it includes 3 meals. How can you justify $300 a meal per day for 1 person (giving bread and butter). There something fishy about it. What are you eating. Gold plated jewelry?? They tried to copy Newzeland model but failed. Newzeland was very fair with their pricing

Agree, bad implementation. But explain to me - how do you reckon government is making money off this?
In this new rules of quarantine at a hotel in 4 major cities you’re paying more than $400 per person for a room and if you’re family of 4 in a same room it’s 4x400=1600 per night and on top of that if you get your results negative for COVID-19 in 72 hrs or less you still have to pay for full 3 days even if you check out earlier. I understand the government is taking precautions that no one should travel outside of Canada but if you’re coming into the country you’ve to get a negative test 72 hrs prior and then again you’ll be tested at the airport. However, you pay taxes on the hotel rooms 13%-15% depending on the province and that is how government is making money on a regular room which cost somewhere between $150-$250 per night and accommodate 4 ppl easily.

The government has not set the price. I guess after seeing the demand hotel owners saw this as an opportunity and started charging more. Though government can set the price (based on the level of the hotel) to be fixed but so far there is no indication that they plan to do so.

Laughable that the government would go to all that trouble to collect GST on some hotel rooms. If the goal was just to collect more GST, remove the travel restrictions entirely, fill those hotels _and all the other ones_ and get even more money.

It's absurd. Not remotely credible.

Taxes are paid on all the rooms not only those under quarantine rules. I am not going to argue here about how government collects money. I just said it in general. Also there is a link I shared above in which local news wrote an article regarding the quarantine issues.

That's my point - the argument that government would impose quarantine rules in hotels just to collect GST is laughably silly.

I'm not defending the cost or the implementation. It seems badly, badly done.

But claiming it's just being done for the government to collect tax money is not remotely credible.
