Thanks Dallasgal. Yeah, I know. My wife was misinformed when she was looking into that. With all the further evidence that I am about to send in for proof of our "ongoing relationship" I dont think the lack of a joint bank account will cause them to refuse me at this point. I'll be posting as soon as I know something.

No news yet on sponsorship approval. Is this normal? I called the call center and a really nice lady told me that I would have to wait and call back after Aug 2nd if I havent heard any news before then. I see that most people get approval in about 24 to 28 days.

Hi dallasgal. Yeah. It does deem that your sponsorship application is taking longer than I have noticed to be usual. However, keep in mind that we are in the middle of summer. Immigration workers take their annual holidays and their offices become short staffed. That may be the case. I noticed a sudden slow-down in cases once summer came closer. Dont assume that something is going wrong. Its just the season.

Have you tried logging into e-cas using receipt number & sponsors info?
You did sent it via a traceable method...yes..?
(Like Xpresspost/DHL/FedEx, etc)

Wish I could edit...anyways
I'm with rgvinson777, I'd say that CIC is a bit bogged down w/summer - student, visitor visas, etc
This is going to sound stupid but I can't remember - you ARE outland - yes?

I'm outland and I could'nt send it Fedex they don't deliver to P.O boxes.....I sent it Canada Post express......I have the customer receipt number can I try to log in under that.....and if I can how do I do that??

Yes. You can log in with the receipt number but only with the sponsor's info, not the PR applicant info.
Posted by pendergirlie
04 Aug 2008 #11
Yep - use the receipt number from your payment of fees, along with your sponsor's info (name, DOB, place of birth)
You're out near me & it takes at least a week before I get anything from CIC.

No letter yet. I did call the call center and they gave me my Client ID number, the guy told me that I most likely won't get a letter, that if they needed any further information or when a Decision is made, then I will get a letter. I did get a e-mail from Buffalo saying that they "DID NOT" receive my medicals, so I had to contact Ottawa about that. I hope they get the results from Ottawa, I'm sure they will.


Congrats on receiving your letter!! that's awsome. At least we know that something is going on with our applications!!! That's a plus!!!

BF (bring forward) date basically means that....my application won't be looked at again till the BF date
I'm not sure what they are waiting on because my CAIPS didn't mention anything being needed, nor have I received any request for information so...I really don't know - my BF date is Oct 23 and I'll request CAIPS again at the end of October (my meds expire Oct 31)

No. Nothing yet. I've gone in to "I'm too fed up to care mode." Waiting on these people is like waiting for an earthworm to develope social manners. Disgraceful!! and Rude! Still waiting.

Anyday now DG!! I think your next.

I sure hope so. I havent seen to many comments about Los Angeles office though, so I don't know how fast or slow they are. Also I forgot to send in my pictures (the ones that are like passport pictures) so I'm thinking they will send me a letter requesting them, so that will delay it also.

Hey back - waiting on the latest CAIPS notes to possibly shed some light on the subject.
Requested them Oct 30 - if it falls in line with the last request - I'm thinking about another 2 weeks.
Are you settling in nicely I hope? :)
