Hi How long does it take to get visa? I am travelling in 45 days?

Andrew De Angelis

Dear Officer, My name is Andrew and I am contacting you on behalf of Family Shoemaker. I have been helping them with their 370-days around-the-world trip travel arrangements. They are on the road already and unable to apply for their visa at the Ottawa consulate. Is there any other possible way for them to obtain the entry visa (Tourism proposes)? Looking at their schedule, in April/May, they could apply for the visas, in person, in Tokyo (Apr 03 to Apr 07) Dubai (Apr 08 – Apr 13) or Istanbul (May 22 – May 27) They are planning to enter Egypt on May 27. Your time, answer and guidance is much appreciated, Kind Personal Regards,

I sent a document to be legalized in mid September along with a certified check of $35 but haven't got it back yet! This is the fourth week of the wait! I called many many times but no answer! Of course no chance to leave a voice mail because the automated message says it's full! I need this document badly and I live in London, very far from Ottawa! Can anybody help please? Thank you.

I had been reluctant to book any tours until an e Visa application had been approved. Of, course with the new rules it is now invalid anyways. This is a nightmare for Canadian travelers who have flights booked. Surely common sense can prevail, and this process can be streamlined.


I sent a document to be legalized at this embassy three weeks ago but haven't got it back yet! I called many many times but nobody took my calls. There was no chance to leave a voice mail. I wrote emails many times but never got any reply. Any suggestion please as to what to do next? Thank you.


We don't know how to get a tourist visa under the new rules. Please fix the web site and provide application instructions. Thank you
