There have been lot of questions about the processing time for SPP visa .  There are following scenarios that a visa application have


  • Acceptance
  • Refusal
  • Medical Examination
  • Interview Call

Acceptance & Refusal : Officially it is said that an SPP student visa application takes 5 to 15 working days to process but the reality is bit different. I have seen the visas being processed in as short as 5 days and it has taken as long as 45 days to process. It is always wise to apply for visa well with in time. Late visa submissions results into further delays and hassles. This first response from the embassy can be an visa granted, visa refusal, medical examination, interview call.


Medical Examination : Once you get first response from CHC and you got a medical examination (the guys who have gone through the medical examination in advance wont get such a call)  you will get the call from CHC for submitting your passport again within 10 working days. Once you submit your passport it will take another 3-5 working days to get the result.


Interview Call : Once you get the interview call you have to work out on a date and time for interview and appear for the interview. On the interview day itself CHC will keep your passport and you will get it back in 3-5 working days with the result.

    hi i have recieved my first response on 23 Dec. 2010 and according to what is written in ithe letter itseems that they need a proof and information for what i was doing during the gap of one year between my hsc and graduation. So i have submitted the certificate of a diploma in 3d animation and visual effects which i did during that period and i have also submitted experience letter from my family business that i was working with after my graduation for almost 2 years . Keeping this in mind can i expect my visa confirmed ? and according to u how many more days will it take to no my result

    • admin says:


      Thats good that you have got your diploma certificate in hand. Well if CHC have asked for this thing and you have provided it then i think they should stamp the visa now.

    how are the chances for getting job in my field there in canada?

    • admin says:


      Since fire department in Canada is controlled by government so it will be difficult to get a job in Canada Fire Department without a PR is bit difficult. But you might get job in other related fields.
