I have applied for a visitor visa online, uploaded the ridiculous amounts of documents required, carefully scrutinized each and everyone of them and I can confirm my visa appllication is 100% correct / complete to the last letter.
NO APPLICATION NUMBER IN CIC Online Dashboard
So after uploading my docs I paid the $100 via credit card and the transaction went through instantly, with me receiving a confirmation email at the same time. (Quick to take money slow to respond to queries...)
Email was an automated standardized email reading as follow:
MY PROBLEM / CONCERN / WORRY
When I logon to the online visa application tracker, on the CIC website (Canada Imigration And Citizenship)
My dashboard looks as follows for my submitted online application .
Notice how there is NO application number showing...? Is this normal?
I would have thought that just like the automated payment email generated an auto payment receipt number, so to would an application number automatically get assigned to your application (as the primary key) you know so you can provide this for inquiries and what not.
- Has anyone ever experienced something similar, or gone through the online application process? If yes can you be so kind to provide me with some info?
- Is it normal NOT to have an application number after 4-days?
- I have submitted the online application last Friday, 18 Aug 17. Does anyone know if weekends count towards "the number of application / processing days?" Currently the estimated processing time is 24-days for visitor visa from my country?
- Should I be worried and try to intervene by cancelling and re-applying or something similar?
Any Tips much appreciated! A DESPERATE PLEA FOR HELP!
My nationality is South African thus I require no bio-metrics or health reports.
