My elder brother also applied in the same process as you have described. He got a student visa in Canada within two weeks.
How long does it take to get a decision after SDS file submission
I am an aspirant of higher studies in Canada and have submitted my VISA under SDS category. I have paid my first year tuition fees and 1 year GIC. I did upfront medical and submitted my application to Canada High commission Chennai along with bio-metrics. After one day of my file submission, I saw my CIC profile got updated and below is my status. 1. Medical Passed 2. Bio Metrics updated. 3. You do not need any interview. We will inform if required. 4. Review in progress. My question is. Within how many days I could expect my decision from the Canada mission? Thanks, Anonymous.
Thanks a ton @Rupa for your reply. I have applied my visa for Jan intake. Applied on 1st November 2019. In CIC website it has been written 21 days for processing time. Hopefully i should get my VISA after 2 weeks.
