Hi, this is Rizwan. I have applied my application in Aug 2004 and file has been transferred to cic London on 30 June 2010, now cic London required me all documents including my IELTS original result sheet within the 3 months time limit. Although I have already submitted original copy of IELTS in March 2008. Therefore, I need to know that should I provide my fresh IELTS result or CIC London will accept my previous one. Kindly guide me what should I do for this issue. Thanks

Comrade said...

You should submit a fresh result of IELTS in order to keep away from any annoyance in future

I would encourage everyone to join this group and discuss all your matters there, and then we should make a plan to approach top Government officials and news channels and start complaining about the stupid system...

Pakistani applicant waits from some 2004 and all 2005
One important news share, embassies staff very capable and well trained, Government of Canada issue order all applicant process with two months they will process.
Canadian economy depends on America. American economy is down so that indirect impact on immigration process.

My husband has sponsored for my visa. the visa process started on 23rd june 2010. till last year the website stated 9 months for processing. this website is recently updated and now the time is given 21 months. i want to know if this current time is for the cases that they started to get this year i.e 2011 or will it apply to previous cases as well. please let me know this!!

Anonymous said...

I applied in 2008, which means i should simply sleep over it or i should start exploring new avenues since this canadian immigration thing doesnt seem to work. It is insane to give such long dates. How do they expect one to plan his or her career?. I hope they hire more people to go through the files and get on with their decisions. Accepted or rejected, doesn't matter but al least they should reply timely. Does any one know when my turn will come? plyz mail if u have any info. thanks..

Hi
I contact different consultant on telephonically for backlog 2005 cases, they have not satisfy answer, and every consultant have different opinion.
Some Indian applicant’s thought, CIC make plan 2005 to above applicant’s fee return with application.
Some said B-046 serious process and upper backlog applicant return.
Some says CIC policy clear next month July 2011 for backlog.
New information, CHC London has quota 2500 for one year Skilled Class applicants.
+++++++++++++++++++++++

Any Pakistani 2005 applicant draw Capisnotes please share information,
I draw capisnotes March 2010, only award age number.

After that I received an online update that my application was transfered to London Office on September 25, 2010. After that I have received no response. Can you kindly indicate the timelines in which i could be hearing about my case.

Hi Guys,

It is only game of their need in particular job category. I have an example of myself comparing with one of my friend.
I applied in 2009 and in 2010 i got the news that your applications has been transfered to UK. Till then it is saying its under process.

Now on the other hand one of my friend applied in Feb 2011 and now he is through with his medical and all stuff only waiting for the visa process.

My category is related to telecommunication/IT.
And my friend has applied in the category of dentist as a doctor.
So it simply clears the picture that due to their back log they have screwed up things. because the time when a person applies for a particualr field and they have not been able to process it in timely manner, NEED for that particular profession dies and new things arrises. Its not only we, the ppl from all over the world are applying.
Also their govt system observes that what actual need is and what is better for their country. keeping such views in front they have also put a CAP for all the professions which are now in place. And before that CAP thingiii they squeze the categories as well according to their need.

Regarding IELTS, the required band is Listening 7.5, reading 6.5, speaking 6.5, writing 6.5, its not about overall band, it must be scored individualy. But if your spouse has bachelor degree then there is a little bit relaxation in IELTS score... This is for general IELTS Only

Anonymous said...

Can some one suggest me if I am qualified to apply. My spouse is graduate from university and my IELTS score is below:

Listening :  4.5 bands = I point
Reading :   3.5 bands = 1 point
Writing :    4.5 bands = 1 point
Speaking:  6.0 bands = 2 points 
Overall band score: 4.5

Total = 5 points.

Dear Sir Comrade,
I had applied in July, 2006 as Federal Skilled Worker Category through CHC (Islamabad). To date 65 months have been lapsed and still waiting. I got my file number in August, 2006 with the time mentioned (Min:36 Months and Max: 42 Months). Sir, what you suggest, how long it will take more? I want to update my family status, you also suggest where i have to update my family status and to submit the fees? Whether at CHC (London) or somewhere else?

Thanks and Regards,

Warraich
