Hello,

 

I am in the same boat as a lot of you people here.

My interview was on the 25th of September at the Toronto Consulate. I am an F1 student on OPT.

The VO asked me some things about my research, asked me about my funding situation, resume.

And then he gave me the yellow slip, with a batch number and told me it could take up to a month, maybe more.

It didn't appear he was interested in what I had to say and had made up his mind about 221G.

 

Since then, I've been checking the CEAC website. Similar to others on the list, the CEAC site showed that my case status got updated on the 16th, but there's not change in the language.

I've sent them 2-3 emails and they've said that there's nothing they can do, as some of you have said on this list.

 

I just hope after this wait they don't want to do 'additional processing'.

 

Thanks for sharing your experiences, knowing that there are others in the same boat and ~ same timeline as I am doesn't help alleviate the worry, but there is at least the knowledge that I am not alone in my situation.

I am also in the same boat. I have seen that my status dates are changing more frequently. My case was created on 30th September (my interview date) then on october 10th and now i have seen october 16th. Does it mean, it is under the microscope of FBI database? As far as I know, everything is resolved by DHS. Thanks for updates, sharing with us...

 

I think, maintaining a status in USA is painful....

exactly...i just dont understand why people have to wait so long to get a background check done...I was checking in checkee, and a lot of people in the Chinese embassies seem to be getting their visas in 35 days...i just dont understand why us being in Canada have to wait longer. Anyway, there is nothing we can do other than wait..let us know when you get an update. Did you email the embassy again since you 2 updates and then nothing happened..

Doesn't one need a Canadian work visa to work in Canada? Even if you are working for a US company and being paid in the US in USD?

I was told that for remote employment, I would need a Canadian work visa and if that takes too long, I might need to go to India before the 90 day OPT period lapses.

Not sure whether the processing in DC is taking long time or the processing here in toronto is taking more time. Im thinking the consulate in toronto is rather slow in this process ?
