Is ur sister still
Posted by hira

Is your sister still below 22 years of age? If yes than she qualifies to be a dependent.. BUt if she is above 22 now, unfortunatly she wont be a part of the application.. Also you have to inform CIC about the changes in ur application, that ur sister is married now.. Taking blood pressure pills is not a problem. One has to have a very contagious disease(God Forbid) , in that case the applicant fails the medical..

My sister is 26 year old now. I called CIC and they told me they look at the time of application received. Because I did argue that i cant keep my sister unmarried so, she can immigrate to Canada.

Medical is booked for 15th March. I was not able to put a future date on this website.
Posted by hira
10 Mar 2013 #9
wow if that's the case, than it's amazing :).. Otherwise they have a clause that the dependent has to remain unmarried till they get the visa in their hands.. Because the definition of dependent as per CIC is:

1) Is under the age of 22 and does not have a spouse or common-law partner;

2) Is over the age of 22 and has been continuously enrolled as a full-time student and depended substantially on the financial support of a parent since before the age of 22;
became a spouse or a common-law partner before the age of 22 and has been continuously enrolled as a full-time student and depended substantially on the financial support of a parent since becoming a spouse or common-law partner, or

3) Is over the age of 22 and depended substantially on the financial support of a parent since before the age of 22 because of a physical or mental condition.
Posted by hira
10 Mar 2013 #10
Yes the age get's locked in.. For instance if a dependent was 21 at the time of application filed, he/she would remain 21 till the visa gets issues..

How did the medicals go?
Posted by Fahad205
15 Mar 2013 #12
Medical for mom went well. Sister too. But no X-ray done for sister as she is expecting mother now and due in 6 months. Not sure how will it impact the case. do you have any information about it? I know about a lady in Philippine had a 4 year old with her by the time she got her visa. Same case. Not sure about her spouse status.
Posted by hira
15 Mar 2013 #13
Ohh that's great.. For ur sister ,they would call her for the xray after her delivery(I am not sure whether they will call and ask for the xray later on or you guys should be proactive in doing so). BUt i am sure , she has to go for the xray after her delivery .. So this would delay the case a little bit..

If you have informed CIC about your sister's marital status and interested to keep her on application then you have to wait 6 + months to complete the medical.An X-ray is a must and they will wait for that.Otherwise make changes to your application and remove your sister so your Mom's application get processed.

My elder brother called IMO to get my sister x-ray done. But they told him that we have to wait for the instruction from the high commission. My mother medical was done on March 15.

08 Jun 2013 #24
well that's weird.. If u guys are willing to get the xrays done now , they shoudnt have a problem as medicals have been done and just the xray part is left now :S..
Posted by Fahad205
11 Jun 2013 #25
Also the status is not updated for medical done. Still in Process. Almost 3 months to medical now.
Posted by hira
11 Jun 2013 #26
Probably they will update it only when ur sister gets done with the xray.. They just update the medical part once only , when everyone's medical has been completed and is clear..

How can I withdraw my sister application? If I choose to, will it delay my mom case??
Any suggestion?
Posted by hira
27 Jun 2013 #28
Why so? U have waited for such along time .. Then suddenly why this urge to withdraw her from the application? I guess u should keep her on the application.. I know it would take time.. But at the end it will be worth the wait.. But anyways at the end its ur choice :).. You can fax them and send an email to.. Also u can write a letter explaining that u wish to withdraw ur sister from the application and courier it to Islamabad.. I dont think it would delay the case..

AoA Hira,

I like to discuss something personal to me. Regarding my mother and sister sponsorship case. Will you mind dropping a line at my email address. I will let you know my concern. fahad_a@live.ca
Posted by Fahad205
15 Jul 2013 #30
OK, Hira, Here is the question, are we able to re-enter a withdrawal request or withdraw a withdrawal request if there is a change in marital circumstances. I sent in a withdrawal request for my sister on July fourth due to her being married and no longer being dependent, however now I wish to proceed with a medical and the sponsorship for her. What should I do, please suggest?

W.Salam.. I am sorry i was away for the last one day.. U can write to me at hiranasir@hotmail.com , if i am not able to respond on time here or u have any other concerns.. Though i am not an expert but ill help u in whatever way i can..

Anyways now coming to ur point.. See ur case hasnot been finalized yet.. That means ur file is open , so whatver changes u have or u want to make u can surely write to them.. You can write to them stating that u wish to withdraw previous request due to the reaason's best known to u.. Explain them the reason's that what made u withdraw the request and now why do u want to include ur sister again.. I am not sure what their response is going to be but there is noo harm in trying..

Hi Fahad,
Just a quick question, when the ISlamabad office requested additional docs, what were they? Any thing new or specific?
Tnx
Posted by Fahad205
22 Aug 2013 #36
HI Farah, They will specify in the letter what are they looking for. In my case they were family tree, my sisters education status, fees slips and enrollment confirmation etc were asked.
Posted by farah242
23 Aug 2013 #37
Tnx for getting bk Fahad. The reason I asked the question was that I wanted to know that if the local visa office will ask again for the proof of income from you just to make sure that you still earn the same amount as when the case was approved from CIC- Missisauga. But seems that they did not ask you for that. Also what is very intersting and confusing for me is that your sis more than 22 and she can still accompany you. And here my lawyer told me that if my sister wants to be still part of application she has to continuo studying as a full time student after she turns 22 till she gets her visa otherwise she will be dropped from the case.
Posted by Fahad205
23 Aug 2013 #38
OK, Lawyer is correct. My sister stayed student for 4 years after I applied. She done here MBA an year ago. This rule is changed now, I believe new age limit is 19 years for dependent.
2nd thing. They wont ask for Income verification. In case they do. You need to send your last income assessment which is 2012.

Hi everybody, just saw CIC website and there was a news about visa officers across the world and in canada are on strike! Expect delays....as if things are not delayed already......
Secondly while its a good sign that I saw today on cic website that they have reduced the wait times for processing the parent sponsorship in step one category....the step two category that involves wait times in local visa offices keeps increasing.....every week 1 more mon is added to a it times. For example islamabad and new delhi wait times are now 58-59 months.... Thats horrible....where is the cic promise of cutting back the wait times???? Are the fooling us? Reducing wait times for step one of the application but increasing the step two part of the process??
Please comment I want to know what other members think about it...we all are tired of such a long wait times...
Posted by farah242
30 Aug 2013 #43
Hi dear forum members....specially those who have cases dealing with CIC - islamabad.... i just spoke with my lawyer here and asked about the wait times that has increased and keep increasing in LVO Islamabad..he was not optimistic at all and hinted certain political and terrorist activities affecting the wait times.....he said it will keep increasing...i mean the wait times......he said that his daughter application took 32 months to sponsor her husband and it was a perfectly normal and simple case while those in new delhi can still comes in 3-4 month on a spouse sponsorship......he said muslims are suffering due their own wrong doings.....he left me so confused..
Posted by Manoo786
31 Aug 2013 #44
Hi farah242, Can you please post the link where you find about the strike?

I think, the lawyer you spoke to have narrow mind towards Muslims. Therefore, he gave such a comment. Don't get confused as they try to make you confused and then try to make money by taking advantage of your confusion.
Posted by Fahad205
31 Aug 2013 #45
Agree with Manoo, Farah don't believe on such things, and don't waste your time in listening to stupid people. Follow the process. Provide the documents. And wait for your turn. Coming to Canada is not the end of struggle. It continues until we integrate and learn the way of living in this part of world. Relax and keep your mind clear of baseless points of discussions.

Strange thing is that my lawyer from pakistan...a muslim. Lol. What is confusing and also given me some hope is that I see members here whose sposborships have been approved in 5 years total both for step one and step two....and the timeline posted on islamabad website is now 58 months.....so 3 years in canada add that to 5-6 years in islamabad thats almost a decade....but members here have received visas here in a much less time recently....do you guys think the timeline posted is wrong? But they keep updating it and each month i just see a increase in wait times nothing more...

People tell stories for many reasons, Some time they lack the knowledge of their profession, some time its to prolong the conversation with a person. etc etc. Depend upon the context in which your lawyer has said it. I wont worry about it.

Wait time is for max. length for 80% of cases. Case finalize early depend upon policies and country quotas. I applied the case in 2008 for my mom and sister and stayed busy in my own life. As i know when they will have their "Rizk" in Canada they will be here. Until than I have to wait. I send documents when Immigration office/ CHC ask. Check my email regularly to stay inform.

I hope this will help you too.

Salam Fahad and Hira - I called MP office and asked about the progress but they gave us the information that I already know from ecas. I remember in one of Fahad's comments that the MP contact can be used to push the chc Pakistan to expedite the case. I wonder if I can call to the MP that Fahad mentioned. I was in the impression that I can only call to my local MP but when I called the office they didn't even asked my address. They just asked my parents file number, name and took my phone number and called me back after 5 days. I think, I can call any MP office and they will use their special contact to enquire.

I have one friend in Toronto whose parents medical was submitted back in Feburary 2012 but they haven't heard back from chc Pakistan yet. Another friend's parents' medical was submitted one and half years ago but they haven't heard anything yet. It looks like if somebody asks or pressurize chc Pakistan then they do it otherwise they keep the file for longer time.

Please advise.

Keep trying Manoo, we are not the only one approaching MP,s.

I know many people have their cases pending, but trust me there must be something that cast the doubt in the authorities minds. People share their problems but they don't share reasons causing the problem or may be they don't know the reason.
MP,s write email to CHC or Immigration minister on family and humanitarian bases. For that you have to make a case and than approach MP again in 6-8 weeks.

Alert – Strike Action

The Professional Association of Foreign Service Officers (PAFSO) union is currently taking strike action. PAFSO union members responsible for processing visa applications have been walking out of offices in Canada and overseas.

Posted processing times for both temporary and permanent resident visa applications do not take into account work stoppages.

Anyone applying for a visa should anticipate delays and submit their application online as far in advance as possible. Electronic applications give CIC much more flexibility in moving case processing to offices with the capacity to handle them.

Contingency plans are already in place to ensure all offices remain open and are providing at least a minimum level of service. Priority will be placed on urgent humanitarian applications.

CIC continues to closely monitor the situation.

aoa,

20,000 parsons are less than 25,000. Compare to 2012-1013 quota of the year. But not bad as they will take 5000 new application a year from 2014.

Additional in 2014 to 2012-2013 (50,000) , 25, 000 each year 2012-2013.
Total 70, 000 in 3 years.
20,000 are parsons not applications. As my application hold 2 parsons. Some have 5 or more parsons in one application.

Correct me guys If I am mistaken.
but its still good, as in 2014 only 5000 new applicants will be added. So, this will clear backlog.

Hi Wahea,

Nope. Not yet. But it was because of us. As they asked some documents in July 2013 and we submitted those in October 2013. And I don't see any movement in Isb. So, just waiting. Will go to MP this week and will submit GCMS notes in 3 weeks.

Hey @fahad205 - I am looking to get more information regarding submitting gcms notes and contacting mp.

- Do I need to submit the consent form in the application while I am the sponsor and I wanna get information about my parents?

- Last time I contacted MP a month ago. They asked me the file number and didn't even bother asking if I leave it their local area. They called me after a week and gave me the same information that I can read at ecas. Is there any good mp whom can apply some pressure at cic?

- Does it help to get gcms notes and contacting mp after every while?

- There are a few success stories like @hira, @shamyil. @can4me, @musketeer and @eshazu. There are people who applied around the same time as the success stories did or even before but they didn't get any answer yet. The only pattern difference I can see in their cases and other people cases is they have more comments. I think, they somehow communicated more to cic and pushed them in some way. Please all you success stories help us out here.

Look forward to hear from you all soon.

Yes, submit the consent form.
Going to MP is just another way of finding out the status. Try again in few months.
Depend which visa office have ur case. Isb seems to be out of quota. GCMS notes are good if there is not activity in ur case in 3-4 month.
I believe we will see activity in second week of January 2014.

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 .

Salam,
Dear sisters & brothers we know we have been all waiting to receive ( Medical, Re-Medical, Decision Made, Passport Requests ).
Even my family case has been running since January 2008 in Islamabad... 11 Months Since my family did their Medicals in Islamabad IOM office but yet no PPR request ( one month is remaining for medical expiry date ) i am quite sure that my family has to do another Medical test also.
I know all are tired of this frustrated immigration process... but i hope all to accept an additional patient until this process gets finalized finally.
Sincerely
Your anxious Sister

i do not think you should wait another week for sending an email. its not that they check mails immediately! plus your mail could be just about giving them an update...e.g you can say that "as per your request on such n such date, I have submitted the additional documents. Hope those documents meet your requirements and our application could be expedited as the medical expiry is extremely close"

thats my suggestion, plus there is nothing else we can do but keep reminding them
all the best

I second talash on that. I too think you should send an email AND A FAX informing them that you have sent all the required documents.

Hi fahad, congrats for the passport request. your case was not transferred to London visa office? becoz everyone got their file transferred from islamabad to london as Pakistan is no longer dealing with parent sponsorship.

Good news Guys, my mother and sister both got the visa.
I have a question and will call CIC on Monday but if anyone of you know the answer please reply. Deadline for the entry is December 2015. But I would like my sister to come early as mom need more time to wrap up matters back home. Can a dependent on file travel alone? She is over 22 and have separate COPR.
any suggestions?
