I had same situation and am My Canada Visitor Visa expired on 25 dec 13, and i am still waiting for my Visa.

All i did was apply for Canada Visa Extension Online... $75 and you will get an Application confirmation Doc, which would keep you in Valid Status for 90days.

I hope our US Visa would be approved with that time period.

Hey Sandeep,even I submitted my passport on Thursday, Jan 2nd like you. I never got clearance email from consulate. The lady at the counter checked and collected my passport when I went in to inquire. Appreciate it you can update me (email id in my profile) when you get your waybill # from Loomis. My case status still shows administrative processing.

Sure, will do.

Do you have any idea why she took the Passport, when status is AP?

So we dont care about online Status, and thats a good sign that they accepted passports.

So now we are waiting for Visa Stamped on passports and send it to Loomis.

Thanks for the update.
