Dear forum members!
Aoa. Where are all the people gone. No submissions for many days. I think all are satisfied now having correspondence from CHC Islamabad. But all of you who have received re-medicals or updated papers request must continue to posts in this forum. This is good place for people like us who are waiting for Canadian immigration. My medicals has been expired on 18.02.11 and I am waiting anxiously for further correspondence from CHC Islamabad. Today I have also received a reply from CHC London which is copied and pasted here for comments.
Thank you for your enquiry.
As of April 1, 2010, applications for permanent residence under the Economic categories for citizens or residents of Pakistan will be processed by our office in London, UK. The economic categories are comprised of Federal skilled Workers, Federal Investors, Self-Employed, Entrepreneurs, Provincial Nominees and Quebec-selected Permanent Workers and Business People. Although Islamabad will continue processing a few applications that are close to completion, the majority are being transferred to London.
The file transfer of existing permanent residence applications under the Economic categories is currently underway.
Our office has not yet received your application. However, the transfer of files from Islamabad is still ongoing. We cannot confirm or deny at this time if your application will be processed in London. Please be advised, if your application is transferred to our office, our office will contact you when we are in a position to begin processing your application. Please wait until this letter has been received before providing any new information relating to changes in your personal circumstances, additional dependents, new employment, education or new identity documents.
You may resend your enquiry in May 2011 if you have not received any correspondence from our office.
Please note, if you were ever sent medical instructions by the office in Islamabad, your application will remain in Islamabad for processing. Please direct your enquiry to the Islamabad office.
We regret that our office cannot provide status updates at this time.
At this point, it is too early to tell what the new processing times will be for these cases in London.
Our office sends immigration decisions and information requests by post or email to the mailing address or email address provided in the application. Therefore, it is important that our office be notified immediately of any change of address or email address. Please also notify us if you would like to withdraw your application. For all other updates, wait until you are contacted by our office or the Islamabad office.
We thank you for your patience during this transition period and for keeping your correspondence to a minimum.
