I am wondering how did they notify you that your documents were sent out Jan 13/14 ? Also , please advise when you receieved your Passport Request?
Our application was received by them Dec 30/2012, things went smooth, and because of the strike last year, delayed things of course.
Because my wife is in the US, not needing a visa, she got the request for photocopy of passport from Visa office, and one other document needing a signature, since I'm also sponsoring her/my 15 year old stepdaughter, asked for in July/2013.
I only emailed 2 times during the whole process, not being a pain, and once we got "Decision Made......" on our online link, Jan 13/2013, I emailed, cautiously "assuming" it was approved, in regards to PR landing time frame.
Since we were in limbo, my wife bought plane tickets to visit in end of March , I was asked if the landing time for PR could be at least included up to then.I hear all kinds of stories, 1-2 weeks to 3-6 months given to land, so since the strike delayed things, and meds were past a year now, I was concerned of them having to run and grab a plane to land, with work/school obligations etc. on hold, and almost impossible on short notice for them.
They responded back with the information of documents being approved Jan 10/14 and mailed out Jan 13/14 (same day I emailed) So, not sure of the time frame thing, since it was already done and sent I think.
So, still waiting for mail to arrive and know the landing date time frame.
I can only hope they gave 6 months from approval, because 3 months would be short a couple days of March plane tickets already purchased.
