Dear Saud Jamil,
Your IELTS test is not valid for Canadian Immigration now. The validity of IELTS test results for Canadian Immigration is only 1 year.

So you have to re-take IELTS GT

I am a Pakistani National and have applied for Canadian Immigration from Dubai 2 years back through Simplified Application Program. At that time I was living in Dubai. Now Canadian Immigration has contacted me and asking for submission of documents. The Visa Office for Dubai residents is London.

I have left dubai and in Africa these days therefore I would like to know that I should write Visa Office for the processing of application as London or Pakistan?

I am afraid that if I write Pakistan then it’s going to take more. What do you suggest? I can still write London?

Processing time from London is half than Pakistan.
