@Paki786: Well, as you can see from my timeline, my sponsorship (step 1) was approved in July 2011 and CIC had asked to submit the Immigration App and all supporting documents to CHC-ISB as step 2 in the process. I did that back in Sep 2011 but no word from CHC-ISB yet. I sent them an email asking for AOR but they did not reply to my email either. Online e-cas shows decision made under sponsorship but no information available on immigration application status.

It took them 4 years to approve my sponsorship at CPC-Mississauga, and with current timeline of 44 months at CHC-ISB, it is highly unlikely I would be hearing from them anytime soon. It literally sends chills down my spine when I see total processing time of 2000+ days for some ppl on this tracker. Can't leave parents for that long on their own, so either have to get them here on Super Visa or I might move back to Pak until their Immigration is finalized.

Hi wujood,
I can understand ur frustration.I was in the same senario and ws getting so upset but be patient as i think so Islamabad embassy wont take tht long now.
They are speeding up the processes now.Hope so they wont take 2000 days now on wards.
Super visa is a nice option and u will have them with u for long time.I had my mother with me in last 5 yrs three times to visit me.Its really hard without ur family for such a long time.
In my opinion wait for another 6 months and i think so u will get some good news inshallah!

Yes i agree with Paki786.

Wajood wait for six month because CIC already Stop taking new applications for this category and prioritize previous months.

Well, I don't trust CIC, looking at ISB timeline of 44 months, I may go for Super Visa and get them over here soon while the case is processed in Pak. It's a shame that they don't give normal 5/10 years multiple visa for parents only without going through long list of items required for Super Visa.

Hi All,

I have couple of questions regarding the latest correspondence from CHC-ISB. The first is regarding Family tree. Does anybody know why they are requesting it when we have already provided Additional Family Info form with Immigration App? Does this form needs to be filled out by both of my parents or just principal applicant, my father?

Secondly, the letter also mentions submitting the RPRF (landing fee) as soon as possible to CPC-Mississauga. Regarding that, should I write the Client ID and Address of my father in the receipt as payer or does that need to be my information? And where does this receipt need to go, to CHC-Islamabad or CPC-Mississauga, if I wam submitting the fees on the cic website, online services? If this has to go to CPC-M, should I also send a copy of that receipt to CHC-ISB?

Thanks.

Hi wajood, family tree is for the principle applicant only and it is required documents for all new applicants. And those who didnt provide earlier need to provide it now. For RPRF you need to fill your (sponsor info) and send the via fax or by mail to CPC mississauga the print out of online fee reciept.

In my case CIC Isb recently asked to provide Back ground Schedule A and addional family form again, which I believe already sent earlier with Step 2 application.

@swisscom: Thanks for the info, I think I will call CIC again to confirm if the family tree needs to be completed by both parents.

Hey wujood, my timelines are pretty much the same as urs. did u hear anything from the CIC Islamabad?

It seems from the recent posts on this form that the process at Islamabad is quite fast and its taking only 15 to 20 months from file transfer to getting a call for passport.

Hello kkf/lucky/manu,

Happy New Year to all and sorry for the late reply. Its been almost one year since I received AOR from ISB that requested Family Tree and RPRF. I have not received any correspondence from ISB after that. Meanwhile, I was able to get the Super Visa approved for my parents which took 10 months. However, they only gave 2 years multiple instead of 10 years as promised in the policy. I tell you what, this Immigration thingy is a real game of patience. Anyway, I hope that the PR application will be finalized during next couple of years and I could bring my parents with me here.

Looking at the timelines, I am hoping to hear something early this year, perhaps around Feb or March regarding Medicals. I will update my tracker if there is any progress.

Thanks.

Guys,

I have some very concerning updates for you. It is my understanding from observing recents patters in processing is that CIC is choosing "younger" parents versus those who would more likely require medical. They absolutely do not give a fuck about whether you applied five or six years ago. I recently got updates from a few friends who applied in 2008, 2009 and 2010 recently receive medical requests from ISB for their parents. The pattern is very disturbing as it does not follow First In First Out policy as advertised by CIC, instead it is in reverse order that is Last In First Out. I have other friends who are in the same time line as these other friends cases but they have not received any correspondence from CIC and no updates are provided. The only reason I could think of is that their parents and inlcuding mine are not so young. It appears that the applicants that are being chosen by CIC and whose applications are being processed quickly are the ones who are still employed (58, 59 years old) compared to 70 years old folks.

I called CIC call centre the other day and demanded to speak with Customer Relations Officer as the front line agents have no information. The officer acknowledged that there have been some irregularities and apologized for the resulting agony caused as a result. He further advised me to contact the Federal MP of my region if I have grave concerns.

Folks, we ought to do something about it. Please call CIC and lodge your protest with Customer Relations Officer, and also visit the federal MP in your area to escalate this issue. We are being unfairly treated and to me it appears that CIC is choosing to discriminate against older parents in favour of young ones, which is the most dirtiest of policies.

Hi Wujood

I follow some other forums and it never occured to me that taey are hand picking the younger parents.Your frustration is absolutely right that your application is not moving forward as it should be by following FIFO.I know you are waiting for first medical request and people like talsh and manukhan and others are waiting for remeds.Though many newly transferred cases are getting meds requests.Actually recently almost a year ago they did a major change .Even in Mississauga they treated application based on the region and number of members of family.It wouldn't be wrong to say they are doing this stuff systematically.I guess there are many systems working side by side and it all depends which path your application would be in.
Right now they are sending medicals to the applications mostly approved last year.Your timeline is close too ,I guess you will be getting medical request soon.
Two months ago onceI tried to talk about the processing times in ISB and lady told me she can't do anything I should be contacting to ISB.Then other LVO's were getting meds except ISB.But now hope is there ,they are started sending medicals ,and I pray that all the people who are waiting get there request especially the oldest cases.

Hi lucky,

Yes, your understanding is correct. However, CIC aggressively advertises its "fair" policy of FIFO (First In First Out) queue but is currently not following that official policy. My understanding is that they need to show the congress/parliament that they have processed x number of parents in a given year, however, it seems that they have issued an unwritten policy internally to their staff across the board to cherry pick parents who are least likely to be a burden on Canadian Healthcare System, hence the term "younger" parents. This way they could show the world that they have admitted parents in large numbers and at the same time "delay" applications for parents who they deem to be imperfect and burden on society. It sends chills down my spine that they have decided to take a leaf out of history where a crazy guy in europe went about "culling" helpless and imperfect humans in order to create a perfect human race!!!

Alas, we live in ruthless and unfair world of broken rules and promises.

Don't worry Wujood.I know how it feels and I understand your frustration ,but I would suggest to be relax,patient and soon it wil be your turn.InshaAllah.Soon this wait will be end you will be reunited with their parents.Good thing is CHC is really working on applications and it will be a matter of weeks/months.Look at Chan 1973 just got visa and talsh is still waiting to hear a news.But I sincerely hope that they end the backlog before new application process system and we all united with our parents .InshaAllah

When my dad got accident last month,I was thinking why did I call him here to get both legs broken, he was better far from me then being in such a pain.
But every thing is decided by our Allah almighty,I am still thanking him for keeping me alive.
So be patient and always pray for ur parent

All,

Thanks for your supporting comments. The fact remains that CIC has cheated us out by lying about the FIFO queue. I just had a very long conversation with an immigration consultant and according to him not only the current policy is that of selecting "younger" parents but also those who are currently employed in their respective professions. For example, the three friends who got meds from ISB were shocked to get them so soon (within 3 years of applying in CPC Mississauga). Their parents have well paying established jobs in Management positions/University Professors and as businessmen and are all under 60 years of age. I have been told that CIC intends to select these "young, fit and qualified" parents so they could spend a few years in the workforce here contributing to CPP, EI and healthcare and may not be a burden on healthcare right after landing. It appears that they are indeed cherry picking the parents based on younger age and "potential" ability to contribute economically to Canadian economy. If true, this development is a very dirty practice and should be deplored. I intend to visit my federal MP in coming days to protest against CIC's discriminatory policies and request an official inquiry into the unfair process underway. We all know quite well about rampant corruption in fast tracking of applications (read about the corrupt immigration officer taking bribes for fast tracking applications http://cnews.canoe.ca/CNEWS/Crime/2012/06/22/19908526.html) but this current processing strategy just takes it to another level of bias and unfairness!!!

Good luck and all the best to everyone waiting...

I was sure they are nt following the FIFO policy since the cases which require prolonged background and security checks are put aside to be viewed later and such cases take around 7-8 years to get finalizzed. SO that's for sure that they are lying about their FIFO Policy, that's just not the case. I was not about the CHerryPicking of younger parets though.. That is so unfair..They just think of the ways how there economy is going to benefit and they don't want the older parents to be burden onn their healthcare system, here they forgt that the citizen's are contributing to their economy by paying taxes , so they have the right to call their parent's as soon as possible.. Only canada take soo much time, otherwise the US Citizen's can call their parents within an year!

Anyways , i wish you best of luck.. In shaa ALLAH ur case will get finalized this year. My good wishes are with u :)..

Hi, I requested the CAIPs notes and the due date for medical, and other assessments was mentioned to be march of 2013. exectly after one year of the date of recieveing my AOR.

Is the due date a true representation of when the processing of the application starts.... if ture, wujood your AOR date is Jan 2012 and you should be receiving the medical call pretty soon....

Comments appriciated...

@kkf80

Absolutely dead silence from CHC Islamabad. No medical requests for my parents yet and my friends who applied one year after me for sponsorship already have already got the medicals done for their parents. I inquired ISB and after two months they replied to my email that the case is in process, there are no guarantees about timelines even as posted online. They asked to continue to wait PATIENTLY but failed to provide the reason why QUEUE jumping is being allowed and files not being processed in First Come First Served basis anymore. My hypothesis is that they are selectively cherry picking younger and fitter parents whom they could somehow eke out few taxes before allowing them to have health benefits, on the other hand allowing natural culling of older and vulnerable parents by indefinitely delaying applications citing backlog. It makes almost perfect sense given the dire economic conditions we are facing/about to face in Canada. I so wish things weren't so bad in Pakistan safety wise and I would not hesitate moving back.

Looking at timelines posted here, I was expecting to hear something last December or Jan 2013 about medicals but that time has now passed. I have absolutely lost faith in CHC ISB's ability to process my case with fairness and may have to contact my federal MP or Minister's office directly to find out what the heck is going on.

@lucky786

I already did, it took them 10 months and they only gave Super Visa for 2 years multiple instead of 10 years as promised, the reason being that the passport were expiring in two years. This is the first time I have ever heard of such reason as most countries give you multiple visa for 5-10 years regardless of passport expiry date. As long as you keep the expired passport attached to a valid/new one, the visa also stays valid. So, I was totally disappointed by the lack of honesty displayed by CIC. The amount of money, time and effort spent was not worth it, and for that reason I STRONGLY advise everyone to stay away from super visa scam and only apply for regular multiple visit visa.

wujood.... Did you request for the CAIPS notes. may be check if something is missing in your application. it seems that they are running two streams of applications, one - the old applications which were submitted to ISB directly by the applicants. second strem is the ones with the applications that were approved in Canada and the applications were submitted by CIC to ISB. the second stream (with out the preference to younger parents, as it was my assumption) is in process very quickly. our applications that are in the first stream may be on hold until, the date of bring forward for our each case arrives and they will open and start working on it.

Keep us updated....
Posted by lucky786
06 Mar 2013 #34
Exactly
I think there are more then two streams.To me looks like at least 4. .One category is which got remeds very soon after the first one expired and then got PPR.

@kkf, @lucky

No updates yet, none. I did not order CAIPS notes but I did call the CIC call centre and spoke to the Customer Relations Officer to lodge a complain. He said that even he cannot see a BFD on my file because there is none. What does that mean, cold case?

As I have explained before, this all seems deliberate. I think that CIC is deliberately delaying the old applications (>5+ years in queue) and will allow those parents to die of natural causes while waiting in queue. This would eliminate huge burden on them of supporting healthcare of these older parents. At the same time they could show the public that they are admitting parents faster than ever, without telling the public about the whole story, that they are allowing only fitter and younger parents in. You will see over time that even the applicants whose files are in fast lane will not get fair treatment among them, those with really old parents will probably get delayed forever. If you think from cost/benefit analysis this makes perfect sense. Couple of people I know who filed in 2009 and have their cases almost finalized have parents who are in 50s and the third person whose parents are much older and even though he applied at the same time as others has heard nothing.

To give you an anology, consider this....you are at a retail store and their is only one counter/cash register open. You are patiently waiting in line along with other folks to pay your stuff. This counter is also responsible for taking returns, applying for retailers store credit card as well as resolving any customer disputes. To make matters worse, the attendent goes for lunch break. All the while the line behind you is getting bigger, but the store has assured that everyone will be served in the order they are in queue. When some customers start making noise, the store manager opens an extra counter and yells "NEXT IN LINE PLEASE COME TO COUNTER TWO". So, they take half the folks out from your queue and start cashing them

(continued from above)

out from the other counter. The benefit that other queue has is that the other counter is only meant for cashing out stuff, no returns no credit cards being applied at this other counter. Meanwhile, your attendent has not returned from lunch yet. Now you are watching the other line disappearing fast while you are being made to look like a fool. After a while the attendent comes back but immediately goes back for a bathroom break, because he over rate during the lunch. By the time he comes back its already time to close the store and you are being told to put the stuff back on shelves and leave the store (comparing with natural expiration of a human life).

Obviously, the above allegory would not work in real world as the business would soon be out of business. However, CIC being a non-private entity and being run on tax payers dollars can afford to be careless, lethargic and irresponsible. I used to believe that government offices are slow and inefficient, but now I can safely add the term UNFAIR to that list. I have lost all faith in CIC to process cases farily. They make and change rules every day now. The fair thing would have been if they found a way to process all applications in equal time, not by finalizing some apps in 3 years and other in 8.

I could go on for ever, but nothing will change. These public institutions are made to serve the public, not the other way around. They give absolutely no respect when replying to your emails or inquiries.

When I applied in 2007, the in-Canada processing time was 24 months and CHC ISB 18 months. By the time my sponsorship app was approved it took 48 months, double the original time. During this time the ISB timeline increased from 18 to 44 months. Now its sitting at 48 months. How is that possible? They stopped taking new applications for parents, the time should be coming down not going up. On top of that they threw FIFO queue concept out the window. This is certainly not acceptable.

I am initiating an official complaint with my MP regarding the delayed start of processing. But i am still waiting for any communication from Isl that reflects any movement on the case with respect to the bring forward date.

Wujood may be its a good idea to request CAIPS notes. Atleast you would have some clarification if the delay is due to some other reasons.

Wujood, how are you launching a complaint for delay to your application. I find out that my case in the same queue as urs and they haven’t even started the initial assessment of the case and in our case they are estimating the timeline to be 46 to 48 additional months (which is insane). The MP office can’t do much in my case and I am thinking to contact Jason Kenny office. Have you done so. Do you know any other people who are in the same category as us.

@kkf,

Sorry, I had been busy lately and have not had a chance to come here. I have sent several emails to CHC ISB but no response received to my satisfaction. They reply two months after your email and always their reply is one liner that says that everything is in order and no additional information is required at this time, please continue to wait patiently.

Last time I spoke to Customer Relations Officer, he said processing time in ISB is 26 months, I am confused too because it says 48 months on the website. The worst thing is that every month it goes up by one more month, so it is a never ending time frame. As I said before, they have found this sinister way to allow our parents cases to linger on forever until...

I intent to contact MP and Minister office both, as well as keep trying to get hold of CIC. I did CAIPS a while back, but can you please send me the instructions for doing so once again? Is is CAIPS or Canada FOSS file?

Hey Wujood, good to hear from u. I think they used to call it Canada FOSS file and now changed it to CAIPS & GCMS notes. the following is the link

the instruction are on the website. I did contact the minister offcie but no satisfactory awnser, as expected.... i am planning to request the CAIPS notes again but it seems that our files are amoung few of the cases that are stuck in the old processing system and may take longer waiting time.

Request the CAIPS notes and keep us updated whats the status of ur file.

Hello Everyone as i am having an analyse about Canadian Immigration : I think the 2013 visa issuance process is ended up, But in second week of January 2014 their new process will start for all waiting cases which's ( A : Background/Security Check is Done. B : Interview is Done. C : Medical Test is Done. D : Passports Request is received & Passports have already sent to Embassy for Issuance of Visa ) ...
Important Note also : There are many number of people waiting for their ongoing visa process for Canada, so we a few number of people in this Track IT Community hope to get done with it in this coming 2014 year, as we know we are all tired of waiting & give up with it .
Tell me as feedback do you agree with my analyse ?
Thank you & Best of Luck for all of you .

Passport request received this week for both of my parents when I had nearly lost all hope. It appears that a few other people also got ppt requests this new year, so whoever is closer to getting done, just hand in there your wait will soon be over too!!

Looking forward to receiving my parents and providing them with care and comfort for the rest of their lives.

Sorry guys, I don't know whats up with this site, upon refreshing the page it post backs the same message multiple times.

@nabeel: There were no dependents in my case, the timeline is as indicated in case above. It took nearly 6.5 years of end to end processing with 4 years in CPC-M for sponsorship approval and 2.5 years in ISB for immigration approval. I suggest that you contact your federal MP and have his/her secretary contact ISB to provide you with latest updates.

All the best for those waiting to get their cases finalized in 2014!

Yes, Alhamdulillah I am very happy and still having hard time believing CIC approved the case. I had thought all along that CIC has decided to prolong these old cases indefinitely such that our parents would never make it. Anyways, its better late than never.

Congrats wujood .... big time. Seems that your case got active last year in June after the medial request. Didn’t you initiate MP's inquiry before that which did not give you much information? I am very close to your case based on the submitting date. Hopefully my case will open as well. I'm planning to request CAIPS notes.

Congrats again......

Hi KKF,

Yes, between medicals and ppr it took six months and I am glad its not close to medicals being expired. MP office did help a little bit in making sure the file is not lost in cold store and CIC has forgotten about it. By making inquiries every 3 months through my MP office at least someone at CIC kept looking for updates on file but you are right they cannot tell 100% when it will be done. I hope you get your ppr soon too.

They just received email last week, I will update the timeline for passports being returned but I would imagine it would be 2-3 weeks max.

Its been one month since passports sent, not returned yet. The ECAS shows In-Process but I wouldn't worry about that too much as it is updated on quarterly basis. Called courier service, they said it could take anywhere between 15 days to 4 months for passports to be returned.

45 days have passed, passport not returned yet. Email sent, no reply. Inquired MP office, says the file is in the final review process, may take another one to two weeks. Fingers crossed!

Hey Wujood, Bro so i was thinking of doing the MP inquiry if time crosses 45 days. Since, you got this reply, i guess same goes for my parents passports too. Okay so we just wait.
Posted by wujood
06 Mar 2014 #75
I think you should go ahead, they should know that 45-60 days is too much time for issuing visa when everything is ready and esp when medical expiry could be an issue, they should not sit on their @**es. more inquiries from respective MP offices the better.

Alhamdullilah, Passports returned today after 55 days, Visa stamped along with COPR letters for my parents. Not sure if my call to MP office to follow up two weeks ago had any effect on ISB. Anyways, after 6 years 8 month and 25 days, my parents have finally received immigration. Now they just need to land before June 2014.

I wish all the best to those who are also waiting for PP to be returned and those who are still waiting for PPR.

best regards,

Wujood

Passports were sent from FedEx Drop Box alongwith return Envelope. They sent back passports via TCS with FedEx envelope unused inside the courier brought it to home we didn't have to go either FedEx or TCS. Not sure if they did it for security reasons.

Wujood, just a quick question. was your file processed in Islamabad? I got an e-mail from Islamabad that my parents file is transferred to London and the process will not happen in London. Secondly the receiving date of the file will be considered from the date it was moved to London, not the date of Islamabad and teh processing time in London is 65 months....... Brutal.
