No they didn't ask me to wait for medicals. I sent all the asked documents and medicals ..etc by mid march. Haven't heard anything yet. I hope they sen t the reply before feb'04. otherwise...i have to do medicals again
News forms package received for application before Jan 2002
I just got a package from CIC today........ they need new forms etc and details as I am to be assessed under the NEW LAW. I still need 70 points and have 90 days to fill and send it back to them.
I dont understand why they need it as whatever details I had sent them the first time is enough to determine that I get 70 points. Wouldnt it be a better idea to ask for just a revised point table instead?
Maybe its a delaying tactic as they have been flooded with applications.
Pkapur I guess you are in the same boat.
And the saga continues................................
APPLIED AUG 2001
MEDICALS AND LETTER TO WAIT FOR INTERVIEW JULY 2002
Weekly Updates Only (Please don't update more than once in a week)
name--->applied->file number->InitAss(Medi)->interview(y/n)-->MediDate--> PassReq--> LandPapers
If you need to change your address again fax CIC at 716-855-0512. This number was sent with the medical forms etc specifically for address change. My address was entered incorrectly and I faxed them to the above number and the correction was made in a week.
I have not heard anything either. I did my medicals only last month (may 22). RPRF was paid mid May.
I see that some have gotten the passport request in 2 months but others are still waiting.
I also visit the forum by campbell/cohen and they say that after 12 weeks of doing the medical if we still have not heard anything we can contact CIC. That is what I plan to do in Aug as that is when my 3 months comes up.
I am in the same boat as you are, This is insane and i dont know why are they doing this. Could you please tell me wher did your file gets transfered. My file transfered to Detriot in November 2002 since that i have not heared anything.
One more thing have you taken the english IELT test which is i believe Mandaory in new rule
your file has been there at Detroit for a long time... you should contact them, do they have contact information there at Detroit..
that's ridiculous, that's too long... when did you apply?
my file has been transferred also but in LA this May,2003 but I still am waiting for any response. they say that they transferred my file to expedite the process, it's been 1 yr since applied... i don't understand it...
I applied last april,2002... i've been waiting for a long time now...
At last, there seems to be some relief with the immigration process. I received my passport with the visa and IMM5292, Confirmation of Permanent Residence form 2 days ago from Buffalo.
File opened: 8/21/2001
Medical Completed: Feb 2003
No interview required
Received CPR and Single entry immigrant visa: 6/18/2003
Note that it took quite some time for the medical to be complete since my marital status changed and I asked for additional time to take my medicals in India ( lot cheaper). So, I lost a year in processing. Also, the IMM5292 is a new form that replaces IMM1000. No problems the whole way. Love the way CIC works. Good luck to all.
I'm a newbie and I'm interested in finding out more about immigration to Canada.
Any answers to the following questions are greatly appreciated.
1) What is meant by '7.0 Band in IELTS'?
2) Can you suggest a Good Immigration lawyer for processing a PR to Canada? I'm a H1 holder in US.
3) Is it better to have a Immigration lawyer or an Immigration consultant? What are the pros and cons of having one or the other?
4) If I start my PR process now how long does it take with an interview in US to have PR card in my hand? I would qualify under the Skilled labor classification.
