Can anybody tell me what this means?

Hi all,

I applied for a family reunification visa. A month ago immigration made a decision to request additional documentation via consular post, which i sent through. Today i have received further decision but i am unsure if this is a positive indication or not?

Can somebody please help me by telling me what this may mean?

Décision:    Octroi du visa sur production de pièces complémentaires.
Date de la décision:    Jun 18 2015
extra info1:    Le poste diplomatique/consulaire compétent communiquera quelles pièces doivent être produites.
extra info2:    La décision est en principe envoyée le jour où elle est prise. Un délai de quelques jours peut cependant s'écouler avant sa réception effective par le poste diplomatique ou consulaire.

Hello ChloeWard

Its french, you can try google translate here :


Decision: Granting visa upon production of additional evidence.
Decision Date: Jun 18 2015
Extra info1: Diplomatic / Consular Office will communicate what parts to be produced.
Extra info2: The decision is normally sent on the day it is taken. A delay of a few days, however, can pass before it is actually received by the diplomatic or consular post.


This will mean in reality that the consulate will send you a letter telling you that they are lacking one or the other paper. And they will take a decision when the file is complete ...

Hi ,
I have the same status for my wife's Visa.  What documents are required in such case? and how to approach them ?

Hello, when did this status start to appear in DOFI website when you search for your application ?

The process is DOFI will send the decision to consulate. Consulate will communicate the decision officially (this is normally by electronic means)

The consulate where you lodged your application, will contact you via VFS with this information and demand for extra documentation as per feedback from DOFI.

HOpe this helps

Since we also have the same status, we called DOFI and they didnt mentiona botu any missing documents. What do you think this can mean? The only thing I can think of is the passport of my husband since he withdrew it.

Indeed. DOFI does not communicate with the applicant directly. DOFI communicates to the consular post from where the application was forwarded to them. consulate (via VFS (or the office where he made the application)) will be relaying this communication to the applicant (him). He can follow their instructions (basically must physically go there with the original passport and documents if any additional is asked by VFS).

That‘s what i receive before, it means that your visa is approve you just need to submit something (mine I submitted a flight ticket)
