      You have a tracking number. Check if it is active; your passport is on the way. All things being equal, you should get it before the end of the week.

    I submitted my application today to the Nigerian High Commission office because when I applied for the Tourist Visa it directed me to the Nigerian government portal website and not this new service. Will this effect my application? I just saw the changes for the Visa application after I submitted all my application documents online and by mail via Canada xpressport.

      No, Stephanie, It will not affect your application.

    I had submitted my visa application right before the announcement of the shutdown. Will my application and passport be physically forwarded to the VFS application center by your office seeing as I already mailed it to the embassy before this announcement. Thank you

    Hello Abu Susan, I sent my visa application documents and confirmed by Canada Post that it has arrived at the NHC April 12th. Today marks the 7 business days for processing, I was wondering if I could get an update of the status of my application. I have tried to contact VFS but they do not have answers for me. Please, kindly let me know it was received and if processing is on schedule. Thank you

      Unfortunately, Visa is under the purview of VFS now. However, I will check to see if it came into the Mission. If so, the officer will send it to VFS.

    As a follow-up to my initial question, 2 different addresses found on NHC ( 294 Albert St #505, Ottawa, ON, K1P 6E6, Canada) and VFS ( 2211 Riverside Dr. Unit 403, K1H7X5, Ottawa, ON, Canada), please which one of the 2 addresses am i expected to send my application to?

    1. Abu SusanSays

      3 years ago

      Abiola, I wonder where you got the second address from? What is on the website is the Albert address. Please, send your application to the first one.

      1. Abiola AdeolaSays

        3 years ago

        Thanks for your response, however, i got the address from VFS site ''The Nigerian Visa Application center will be operational on appointment basis only on Tuesday and Thursday. However due to the current situation, only mail-in applications would be accepted. Applicants can send their applications via mail to 2211 Riverside Dr. Unit 403, K1H7X5, Ottawa, ON, Canada. click here to know more about mail-in application process''. which is different from the address on the NHC site.
