Its been three days i still see my status as Administrative processing, i dont know when they will update my status. Does anyone know how much time they take to send the passport / change the status to visa issued.

No Aditya not yet... Still waiting on the update from consulate. Not really sure why they are taking so much time and they have not yet reached out to my client or company or anyone, confused a bit.

Hi Hareesh,


Everything will be fine, i guess you had all the docs in place so it should not be an issue. I am also planning to go for stamping next month, could you share your email ID, i have few questions to clarify.

Hi! All,


They called me back to consulate and gave my passport back just incase if i needed it and they said processing is taking longer time and they asked all my old client and employer details, I129, LCA for present and previous petitions.


They almost re interviewed me when i went to drop the documents they asked me.


As of now I have my passport with me and hopefully they will confirm with my client manager and let me know about the status. Except waiting for them to give me the update i don't have anything to do. Hoping for the best.

Hi! All,


At last I have got my visa issued after a month time. On April 22 I sent an email to Ottawa Consulate asking my status and they mentioned they sent some emails to my client manager but she never received any emails from consulate and I asked them if i can ask my manager to send consulate an email and they said it fine. I asked my manager to send an email and once she sent it. They asked me to come to consulate and after 45 minutes talk between me and consular officer they issued visa. They had some questions and I answered it on April 24th. Today my visa status changed to issued just waiting on my passport to pick up.


Thanks all
