Hi good to see you on this forum. Do you mind in telling what Documents were requested ? Do you have dependents in your application.

I guess that a generic template request they send to every one. In the request they asked to submit police clearance, landing fee ........ in a nut shell all the forms that most of us already submitted here in Canada.
**The only tricky one is the family tree which has to be completed by the sponsored person in my case my father and mother.
In that form they go up to your grand grand father their name DOB..

Thanks for the quick reply. I am waiting for AOR as well therefore was inquiring and, if possible to get ready in advance. Is the family tree was requested only for principal applicant ? Also was there any family tree form attached with the request ? Which items that they requested takes the most time to produce?

If you already submitted the Police Clearance Certificate than this form will will take most of your time to complete because its really difficult to collect ancestors information

hello shahsmi.. We did our medicals on 28th January but my mother was requested to do the sputuum test aswell.. Sputuum results take 8 weeks.. So that's the reason we suffered additional waiting time.. Our ecas started showing medical received on 15th april.. But it still show's application received :(.. I dont know why are they taking so long for us now :S.. Anyways u should get the ppr soon in sha Allah :).. Did ur status change to "In Process"? or still shows "Application received"?

Its still showing Application received, Do you think its better to do some follow-up instead of just sitting?
Posted by hira
26 Apr 2013 #12
There are just 2 ways to do follow-up.. One is sending them an email,to which they give a very generic reply that your case is under process and no action is required.. Secondly , GCMS notes can be ordered to see at what stage our case is.. But i think it's too early to do any followup.. We should atleast wait for another 2 months and see if they contact us or not.. I hope they send the ppr request within few days in sha Allah or max a month.. The day the ecas start's showing in process, then the ppr is defintly a few days away.. So at the moment we can just pray! Best of luck to us :)..

I had send a follow-up email too but as you said deep deep or may be I can add one more deep sleep (:
Posted by hira
16 May 2013 #15
When did u send a follow up mail? They usually take 1.5-2 months to reply to an email :P.. Lol True "Deep Deep Deep Deep............ sleep that is :).. I guess we have to stop thinking about it now(Which is next to impossible , but we can try) , this is the only way we could stop torturing ourselves..

Any update shashmi? Any MP request or GCMS?

I did receive the GCMS but nothing special there. I think they are done with the quota for this year.
They will re-start case processing once the new quota date reaches (1st of Jan 2014 my guess ) Allah knows better

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 .
