I really doubt they have lost your application so don't scare yourself into that situation just yet. You just got to the 3 month mark now. Lol. Plus I am pretty sure it is a rare occasion that they lose applications and well if they do lose mine, they won't be able to walk straight for the rest of their life. Lol. Well I think on Monday you should call and explain to them that you can't find your client ID # and you would like to know it because your application should be in process by now. Most of the time they will ask you a few security questions and will then give it to you. About the letter, I don't know whose signatures you are reading but I have only heard of them getting a letter once they reach AIP. Then you should get a letter.
I tried to find a picture but not sure it will be big enough. It shows where the client ID is normally located on a permit/visitor record etc. Now if you only got a stamp in your passport you probably don't have a client ID until they start processing the application. When it is just a stamp, there is no client ID listed.
So hope this helps and hopefully you can somewhat see it. If you need me to I can send it to you in an email.
(You had attached image of study permit but I can't post link into this forum, so I have to delete the link, hope you know which post I'm talking about)
I'm posting questions on another inland thread for 2011, however, looking at this post, I have a new question just for this post. Please kindly advise me, appreciate for your help!
I'm here in Canada more than a year so far under Closed Work Permit. I quit the job some months ago since "enough is enough", I couldn't stand for the employers anymore. I got married here in Canada in June, 2011. My visa will be expired in Jan, 2012. I intend to submit my application next month (October, 2011).
When I fill the form "IMM0008ENU_2D Generic Application Form for Canada," I intend to leave UCI blank because I think the client ID on my work permit won't suit the case of PR anymore. However, looking at this post, I know that client number on work permit also makes some sense to PR application. Do you think I should use client ID no on work permit to request fingerprints (appendix B) and fill into UCI for PR application?
Here are my questions in another thread, by any chances if any of you here can answer, please freely drop me some lines, thanks very in advance:
1. I read a lot, some people said I don't need Police certificate inside Canada, others said yes. I know from CIC tiny post, I don't really need it. However, people claimed that if I get it early, my application may process faster. To be honest, please let me know what I should do now?
If I want to get it first, should I print Appendix A to any local police office? Can I request it online? How much do I pay for it? angtao answered me: Yes, I need police certificate, especially I need the fingerprints first.
2. The same as police certificate, now, the fingerprint. Let's say if I want to get fingerprints before submitting the application, which Client ID no. should I fill into Appendix B? I don't have any client ID no except the one on my work permit. I know the one on my work permit doesn't make sense in this case. Please help!!!!! So confused.angtao answered me: Yes, I need the fingerprint. But I still don't know which client ID to put into the request form yet.
My new question after angtao is here: I don't submit my application to CIC yet, therefore I don't have any Client ID no. I feel this one like a infinite loop between forms. This one relates to my question for Love_Young above.
3. If I want to get an open work permit during waiting time of PR processing, do I need to finish "changing work permit condition" application and attach with PR application? I read here and there, people said that I don't need to do anything, an open work permit will be automatically issued to me after 8 months of PR processing, is it true? If you guys went through this part, please kindly help.angtao answered me: Yes, I need the application for open work permit to attach with PR application.
Should I approach with open work permit application or change conditions of the current closed work permit?
4. Medical examination: "5289E Instruction Guide.PDF" said that I don't need to do medical check before submitting application. However, still some people did it in advance (from this forum). Could you please advise if I need this one before submitting the application? Where should I go for checking and how much for it?angtao answered me: Yes, I need to get medial exam
If you have any input like how much for the service and where should I go to do medical check, please kindly modify for me.
Finally, thanks a lot for your time on my post. Please forgive me if some answers should be around already, I'm trying to read more and more in the mean time too.
