Hi Misslhrfsd,
I wanted to know what documents were requested from CHC- Islamabad? was it just the medicals or anything else too? also do u have any dependants in your application, like your siblings? thanks:)

The only document they requested was the family tree earlier on around couple of months or so after submitting docs to Islamabad. Since then its just medicals requested; the application is for just my mother.

misslhrfsd, one thing is surprising me though.... your file was transferred to Islamabad visa office on 21 DEC 2010 based on the information you have provided. it means that they processed the case in just one and a half year?? that is really good! other wise the time mentioned in 43 months! r u sure the timeline you posted is correct?

hi misslhrfsd, First of all congratulations for getting the call for ur parents Passports. It seems that few other people also got the whole process from submission of application in Islamabad and getting the Passport call completed in 1.5 to 2 years. This is good news. This could also be due to the reason that CIC increased the number of visas for parents by 60% for 2012. Current quota for 2012 is 1500 while there are more than 2200 applications in queue, so hopefully the short processing time will sustain for next year as well. Keeping my figures crossed.

Hi misslhrfsd
Congratulations.
Thank God someone got the request.That's great.
The above source in kkf80 's post is cic.gc itself.I guess it is from a quarterly report.
Would you like to tell why they ask for second medical?
Very happy for you.

Thanks lucky. Second medical included some additional tests + reports from specialists which covered possible areas that could be impacted by existing medical history. I am not very comfortable discussing specifics. I am thankful that all the new test results and consultation with specialists came back with an OK report.

Submitted in 3rd week of July, I think it takes anywhere from 6-10 weeks minimum so, just waiting patiently at the moment.

On CIC website status changed to "Decision Made". I think the status on website always lags the actual processing; just keeping fingers crossed. Praying for a favorable outcome.
