When we were transferred to CPPO they were talking about 40 months, which is now. On the other hand CHC London has conveniently updated their processing times from 36-42 to 44 months_ an cowardly way to ensure we are "still within standard processing times" and they therefore cannot deal with any personal requests...
And like you edupolo, CPPO did mention that "10 months" timescale to finalise application, but they also added "if you don't hear us by Feb 2011". Well we did get our medicals, so technically we did hear from them. That's not to say we'll get finalised by Feb
The latest email we got in September said We have no quota that we are aware of. The medical forms were sent out a few days ago. We ask you to complete your medical examinations within 60 days. Visas would not be issued until at least early 2011.
Of course they were only saying that CPPO doesn't have any quotas, but London does! And what about "at least early 2011"? Jan, Feb, April? Or as suggested below, London will deal with us for 6 months in strict chronological order, and then do something else for 6 months, which means we could have to wait until... (I can't even write that date...)
Looking at the timelines of other London applicants, you cannot but be amazed at the discrepancies in timelines: Meds 4 october 2009, PPR 17 October
, but Meds 8 October, PPR 15 January??? And now some of us have been waiting since July?
Our experience of dealing with CPPO is that they are much more responsive than London, especially when applicants mention problems with a specific deadline. When we said we were afraid we'd miss our meds because we were going to be away, they told us the meds had just been sent. Now we mention March maybe they'll be able to give us a more precise idea. Same for your med expiry edupolo, if our email fails I'm sure if you emailed them in Feb they would give you more info. Obviously you could'nt be expected to undergo meds again just because they failed to keep their timeline.
More good news, and bad: I read yesterday that London, who has so much backlog that they send stuff to Ottawa, is now in charge of Islamabad applications
But I came across a London SEp 2007 applicants (not CPPO) who got their PPRs on 30 December... Talk about a reason to celebrate the New Year
