Hello, everyone. New member here. hoping to spend some time in the forums (or I'll go insane).

i'm a Dominican (Dominican Republic) citizen applying for a Skilled Worker Permanent Residence Visa through the Port-au-Prince visa office since january 2008 (2 years! *gasp*)

So far there's been no response from the office. Only the AOR.

But what worries me is the situation of the office after the terrible earthquake (january 12, 2010)
There's very little information about the matter.

i wrote an email to Question-Haiti   @   cic.gc.ca and they answered:

Dear <Polaris>,
Thank you for your email concerning the current situation in Haiti.

Please note that the Canadian Embassy in Port-au-Prince has also been damaged by the earthquake and that services are therefore limited.  Our main focus is currently to ensure the safety and security of Canadian citizens affected by this disaster and then to resume visa and immigration services.

Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) is working very hard to resume services in the area.  As they do resume, we will provide detailed information on measures in place for the processing of applications that were already submitted to the Visa Office in Port-au Prince.

Effective immediately and until further notice, please submit questions to the Canadian Visa office in Santo Domingo.

In the meantime, for more information concerning the situation in Haiti or CIC policies and procedures, please visit our Web site.
 

I hope this information is helpful.

Sincerely,

Philippe, Agent 3443
Citizenship and Immigration Canada
cic.gc.ca


Please Note: Due to the recent earthquake in Haiti, Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) is working closely with other federal departments to monitor the situation and help those in need. The information provided may change frequently and without prior notice. For the most current and accurate information, please visit our website. CIC Internet information is available in both official languages. This email was sent to you in the language of your choice. The masculine form is used for convenience; however, it refers to both men and women.



*Does anyone know any further information about the Canadian Embassy in Haiti if files have bee transfered to another office? (besides to wait)
*Is there a way to transfer this application to another office or should we continue using this office?
*Does anyone know if there's a phone line where we can call? I've tried calling the office in Haiti, they don't answer Immigration Aplication related questions via telephone.


Any help would be appreciated. Thank you very much.

Polaris,

Go ahead and send your documents to Santo Domingo if you have any. Otherwise, wait until they contact you. Yes, indeed, PAP is no longer handling cases for those who resides in The Dominican Republic.

Last Month, I submitted my documents in Santo Domingo. 

I have applied under the FSW-PRV class - NOc- 0111

Thanks so much.

Sadly, I already applied through PAP. I am going to call to confirm that my case have been transfered to Santo Domingo (IF they decide to provide that answer to me).

Otherwise I'd have to request for CAIPS to check if they actually transfered the files.

I hope this means they will speed up the applications. They say here "escobita nueva barre bien" Smiley

Also someone sent me this link at the cic.gc.ca website, confirming the information.

Please visit this site.

You do not need to request a transfer as they are doing it automatically for those who resides in the Dominican Republic. They will contact you or your representative.
