Processing Time Exceeded Visitor Visa

Discussion in 'Visitors' started by imakshaye, Jun 30, 2018.

  1. My parents applied for Visitor Visa Online from India for Canada on 18th May 2018 but still have not received any update yet. They want to meet my elder brother who has a study visa and is currently studying there. The average processing time of 28 days is already exceeded. Can someone please tell why there has not been any progress in this regard? My dad and mom both are government employees so why are they hesitating in giving the Visa?
    Whom should I contact for quick redressal of the concern as its already 45 days since the date of applying for Visa?

    Here is the status that I have been seeing everyday with no change at all:

  3. Same message shows in my sister s case
    Applied online May 18
    I think they have lots of applications
    So they are taking time
     
  4. My parents applied for visit visa end of April it too a good 1 month as well for there visa to be issued through NDVO...my father is retired govt employee as well..
    I would blame it on the work load...
     
  5. I don't know what time they are taking. My mom's brother applied for Visa through paper application on 19th May and received it on 7th June. It just seems that they have sidelined our Visa application.
     
  6. Online Applications
    I think
    They are taking time

  7. As the visa office has started reviewing their eligibility, they will most probably get decisions soon. They are lucky that no background checks are being done which could delay decisions.

    You can send a Case Specific Enquiry/IRCC web form to request their local visa office to expedite the decision
     
  8. Well the Visa office has been reviewing the same since 15th June(This was the only time an update was given). Why has no decision been taken since then?
     
  9. Visa decisions can take time. There's no hard and fast rule that applications must be decided by a certain date.... or certain processes will always take X days for all applications
