Dear Forum members and moderators,

I Would like to share my Canada visa experience with all forum members to help and support them in their visa applications. That’s why posting such a big content to help everyone who intent to apply Canada TRV Visa. However my Canada business visit visa was also refused in September 2017, I was going to USA for exhibition in 2017 and applied online based visa in 2017 which was refused in 2017. In my covering letter I mentioned about my previous refusal and also attached the photographs of my 2017 USA travel. I had very less hope about it that I will get the visa because of my previous refusal. But I took the chance because I was traveling to USA again with my family to attend some business exhibition so I planned again and took the Chance to apply for the tourist visa so together we will visit both USA and Canada.


Applied as a tourist visa with my family. I was holding UK Valid Visa, Schengen Valid Visa, USA Valid Visa and China Valid Visa.

My family was holding Valid US Visa and had a Schengen Visa on which they traveled to Germany along with me in September 2018.

Depends on which category you applied for ? I believe your case is under process once the decision has been made on your application you will receive biometric validity email from CIC and after that email you will get your passport in next 3-4 days. So wait for that biometric email.
