Hi All Forum Members,

I would like to share my timeline here:-

Daughters's TRV Applied: 11th July
Submission Confirmation: 11th July
Application Approved: 14th July
Original Passport Request: 14th July

Location : India ONLINE
Travel History : US (Short Stay) and China
Previous refusal : None

Mine:
TRV Applied: 11th July
Submission Confirmation: 11th July
Review of eligibility: We are reviewing whether you meet the eligibility requirement
Current Status: Your application is in progress. We will send you a message once the final decision has been made.
Location : India ONLINE
Travel History : US (Long Stay) and China
Previous refusal : Yes in TRV in the year 2003

As you can see from above, mine application is stuck , my daughters approval was granted in 3 working days!


The other thing to be noted is that I created 2 different online accounts on cic.gc.ca (GCKEY), one for myself and one for my daughter(she is 18), now I am thinking that I should have applied under 1 application, for example added her as a family member.

Regardless, our travel dates are same for next month third week of August 2018 for the duration of 1 week.Its interesting to see how to 2 family members are treated differently given their past travel history.

I hope the above information helps the members.

Lastly, I would like to ask fellow members, would it help me if I raise the web enquiry to let VO know that TRV Application for my daughter has already been approved?

Not submitted my Daughter passport yet as we have 30 days to submit as per passport request letter.

Kindly Advise
Thank you all for reading

When did your spouse give his biometrics?

No, ASC won't lose the biometrics. Yes, it is forwarded to the visa office

@Bryanna need your help..I was forgot to add email id in application form.. this can cause any issue? Online application
Yes, it can. Although all notifications/communication from IRCC will be through your online account, an email address is required.

You must send a web form to your local visa office for your email address

We both gave biometrics same day! Actually spouse went in first (like 10 mnts before me)
I know it's my fault that we created different accounts. After we submitted the applications, I realized we could have uploaded all documents under one account.
Let's hope his account will be updated soon.
It says on the biometric request letter that it's valid for just 30 days, after that the application will be closed!
One more thing, his status shows they are checking elegibility, background check, documents....etc, it is my understanding that they only start processing after receiving biometrics! Does it mean they received biometrics but the account doesn't show it?
Thank you Bryanna. I see you help lot of people here.

You could send an email to your local visa office to confirm they have received your spouse's biometrics. The processing status indicates biometrics have been received but may have not been updated

Thank you. I'll wait few more days. If nothing happens I will send an email.
I've read so many people saying they sent emails but never got any reply!
