Yup it took me 4 Months only while the normal processing time here in Riyadh is 6 Months. I submitted all requirements with Police Clearance from Saudi Police (translated) and NBI from Philippines (I suggest do not wait for them to request. Submit it and attach it under "Proof Meeting Requirements". I am more than willing to share information.

I'am a Dec. 04, 2013 applicant . i submitted all my documents to CVAC Abu Dhabi personally and they said that the result will be in 4-6moths but till now didn't receive any email/ msg. I tried to track my visa on VFS it said that "Visa application, tracking ID No.20131204AEACWKR----- is being processed at the Canada Visa Office, ABU DHABI... It's my 10 months of waiting without any email/msg from the embassy... I'm very frustrated ...Hope you could help me with your advice ..many thanks

I am not sure how it works... how they categorise applications... if for example care givers takes longer than jobs in the food industry or in engineering/construction... We submitted our applications beginning of April, timeline on the Abu Dhabi website says 4-6 months processing time however, on CIC it says 7 months. We emailed Abu Dhabi to ask for an update as they have exceeded their published timeline of 4-6 months, got a reply saying that there is a back-log so estimated time is now 8-10 months :( apparently most of the applications were sent in between April and August which also doesn't help with the already existing back-log... Anyone on this threat sent in their applications in April?

Hi Teph, which industry are you applying WP for? Did you have an interview with the employer? Please share how you landed your job and your timeline.

Hi Guys,

My friend just recently applied for Visitor Visa through Abu Dhabi office, and I know this trend is for those who applied for Work Permit, but my question is regarding the biometric and its fees.

So she received this email that she needs to pay the fees via a bank draft, but the instruction provided for how to prepare the bank draft is pretty confusing. It says and I quote: "Only bank drafts containing the name and complete address of the Canadian bank will be accepted". How can we get this within UAE ?!

How did you guys prepared your bank draft? Is there anyway else to pay for the biometric?

Thanks
