Canada visitor visa - Processing time?


Recommended Posts

hi All


I am planning to go Canada visa, can anyone please let me know the process of how to obtain the Canada visa from especially LA office.


I am planning to walk in  and appear for the Visa. But I am hearing the rumors that CANADA visa offices are not accepting the walkins. Can you guys please share your experience and guide me.

I too have received request for passport. I read in other posts , few guys sent there passport to LA consulate and there passport was unstamped when they received it. So, where should we send our passport to, LA or NY consulate ?


Also, are there any extra documents required to be send other than passport, request letter and self addressed express mail ? In other forums, I read they also request for VAC fees ?


From previous post why Cashier's check is required ?


What are the extra documents we shloud send along with original cahsier's check to Utah ?


Any help is appreciated.
