really there is "forever"
i agree with u "john" they are pathetic. i think its "only in the philippines" that processing papers at canadian embassy need barrels of patience on the part of the applicants. they are experts of making us WAIT. in our case all we do is wait. i do not understand what is taking them so long just to stamp our passport with visa. when in fact we passed and complied every thing that the cic requested. because of the very long time for processing at the embassy, last year we were obliged to repeat our medical. what a waste of time and money! and were on our fifth month of no response from them. if tehy were only doing their job well. we could have been with my family in canada as early as jan 2015. what a delay!

Manila wait times are pathetic
The CIC embassy In Manila is dysfunctional. My wife applied for a spouse visa in June of 2015. The sponsorship part, of course completed in Canada was done as expected in approximately two months and then passed on to the dysfunctional people at the embassy in Manila.

The people working there are accountable to NOBODY. They do what ever they want and I believe they are very prejudice.

My wife worked in Dubai for a year and she has NEVER returned, so prior to submitting our application we obtained a Police Clearance from the Dubai Embassy in Manila.

This took us 6 months to achieve and it was already expired when we received it.I wrote a lengthy letter explaining this clearly. I was told by an immigration lawyer that it would be accepted as long as she had not returned to Dubai.

Of course as soon as the people in Manila get their hands on it, we get an e mail from them: Please obtain an up to date Police Clearance from Dubai!!

We also got a request to provide more documents to prove her identity!! Again so much stupidity. What MORE do they want!! Her birth certificate, passport copy, drivers license, marriage certificate etc etc.

We provided all the documents, with the help of a lawyer the police clearance was accepted.

To date after 10 months ECAS does not even show her application in process. What a disgrace and an injustice.

This is the way a born Canadian Citizen is treated by a bunch of grunts in Manila after 35 years of paying income tax, property tax, into OHIP etc etc.

Only word to sum up the CIC embassy in Manila is
PATHETIC and an embarrassment to Canada.

Good luck to anybody trying to sponsor a spouse from the Philippines.

getting bored from the loooooooong wait
do not make any arrangemnts on your flight or try to stop from work or school if for example, you just submitted your passport for stamping this month.... you have a long way to go. just a piece of advise... you may want to truly save barrels of patience... u'l surely need it wyl waiting for that passport to be returned. goodluck to us all.

San po ba nila pinoprocess yung Visa stamping sa Passport? Sa Canada mismo or sa Pilipinas? And How long po kaya kami maghihintay for our passport? We submitted it on February. Ano po estimate nyo? Thank you po sa magrereply. Para alam ko lang po kung mag eenroll pa ko for next school year.

omg antagal, very disappointing ang system
i just wonder if other embassies in other countries have same poor system like in pinas. very disappointing. we sent our passport last oct 2015. it had been almost 5 mos and yet all we do is wait. ive read comments here, and realized its a case to case basis. y do we need to suffer... y does the other applicnts wer blessed by receiving their visas for a month wyl others like the poor guy waited for 8 mos already. ano un pasensiya nalang pagka napatungan ung pasport mo s pile of many passport...sori k nlng... mali kc ang systema. may dapat mabago. like in our case. if we wer granted with the visa earlier, my daughter couldnt have been hospitalized. and we were with my family already. is this a a battle of fate?
