  1. Just FYI, folks who are looking for hotels...look for price line express deals..I found very cheap ($70-$90) near by YVR in 3+ star rated hotels,...
  2. HI Swatina, Yes, My wife (F1) & me (H1 extension) received passport on Friday itself, and I directly went to consulate to pick it up in the morning hours (11 AM, where my status got changed to issued at 9:15 AM on same day). Since I have some emergency travel, I was allowed to consulate office (20th flr) and collected our passports. But few people attended on 21st still didn't receive...hoping they would have got some update today..
  3. yes, in Vancouver ..as far as I know people attended on july 21st didn't receive passports yet....but later dates attended ones received....at least good sign... waiting for our turn....
  4. My wife & me attended on July 21st, haven;t received any update from consulate regarding passport return. No updates in summary page and in other ceac site it shows admin processing with interview date as last updated. As far as I know none received passports with visa prints who attended july 21st or later.... I got couple of emails from few folks, who attended in calgary, ottawa, kingston (jamaica), and same issue there too. so far no luck in sending emails also to consulate, as simple reply is passport an be returned without stamping and need to submitted 2 days before go to US. Hoping for the best.... Though it might be resolved this week, it might be delayed little in processing due to pending applications. So folks who are planning to attend NIV interviews at other than home country, think twice and plan well....GLTA....
  5. seems we are stuck guys...technical issue is across the world. Can see in Canadian website too, So folks who are planning next week be prepare for longer stay or postpone rather joining in waiting game... http://canada.usembassy.gov/visas/visas.html The Department of State Bureau of Consular Affairs is currently experiencing technical problems with our passport/visa system. This issue is worldwide and is not specific to any particular country, citizenship document, or visa category. We apologize to applicants who are experiencing delays or are unable to obtain a passport, Consular Report of Birth Abroad, or visa at this time. We are working urgently to correct the problem andexpect our system to be fully operational again soon. Thx,
  6. hi Sriram, Yes, mine is also showing same administrative processing. When I checked in forum usually that is how they update system during application processing. As per forum update in the past it was same for folks who got pp in couple of days. May be system crash is true...tkris131 thx....

Hi Sriram/Raj, Any luck in waybill number ? Mine is still same.... here is my email......***************at the rate gmail... thanks, kris
