How do I apply?

Applicants who would like to pick up their passports outside of the regular pick up times following the first day their passport has been made available for release can do so.

If an interview is required, these will be scheduled in advance at a time convenient to applicants so they will no longer stand in line outside the High Commission or Consulate General.

Applications submitted by mail take a minimum of two weeks from the time an application is received in our office to process.

Please note that processing times vary from case to case, often due to reasons beyond our control. Some cases will take longer than the times indicated above.

Note: VFS is responsible only for accepting applications and providing advice and guidance where necessary. All visa applications will continue to be assessed by visa officers at the Canadian High Commission in New Delhi or at the Canadian Consulate General in Chandigarh.
