Hi, Does anyone know in the new IRCC Portal, if the counterfoil information will be available after stamping?

We sent my mother’s passport for TRV stamping a week ago, the status on IRCC Portal just updated to approved. But I don’t see any counterfoil record in IRCC Portal.

I remember that in GC Key we can see counterfoil info once status is updated to approved.

Hi! Has anyone submitted their passport to VFS recently in Nigeria (Lagos or Abuja)? How long exactly did it take from when you sent it to the time you received it back in your hands?

I heard Abuja VAC is faster than Lagos.
I heard same! Although my sister has sent her passport to the Lagos VAC today (Saturday), her flight is exactly two weeks from today. Hopefully I won’t have to extend it.

Has your mother-in-law submitted hers? Please let me know how her timeline goes this week :)

Hi All,
This morning I noticed that biometrics disappeared automatically from both gc key applications. It was showing information till last week.
Did anyone notice this in their application? Could you please check and suggest?

Did you contact IRCC Canada or India?
I called IRCC Canada and they mentioned thatyour application is being processed in India so they do not have any visibility.

All my applications were cancelled and I got a message that you have been assigned new application number to correct an administrative error.
Nothing else has changed and your application is still in progress. I linked new application to my IRCC account, biometrics are reflecting. Eligibility review went back to not started yet.
Did anyone come across similar situation?
Below are my timelines.
Application from India.
First Application: February 15,2021 on GC Key
Biometrics: August9, 2021
Second Application: September 18, 2021 on GC Key
Third Application: November 4, 2021 on IRCC Portal

All these three applications were canceled on November 29, 2021.

Please suggest
