I just read this from another forum but im not sure if the information is reliable or not...
They said, you will know if the "Decision Made" is positive or negative by counting the number of days past after DM in ecas to the day when you received the visa.
The reason behind, is the visa package is delivered via DHL or courier in an average of 3 to 6 days.. and the REFUSAL letter is allegedly sent via normal postal mail ( Is this true? ) The quicker you receive the visa, it is likely a positive DM.... If its longer let say 2-3 weeks it is probably a negative DM. ( how about those from the province? )
AGAIN, im not sure if this information is true... so for those who already received their visa..
How many days AFTER DM in ECAS you receive the visa?
False, why people post dumb things like, I don't know.
Also to answer your other post.
Yes and No. Of course everytime you call, email, or visit it log into your file. If you keep bugging the Visa office and/or officer. They may decide not you process you. But in general that is not the case.
They also WARN you not to bother them, until certain time period has passed. As normal process for application as per 2006(or 2008 I forgot) is 9 months.
I have been reading this website for while, but never registered to till now.
The reason your application has not been processed yet, but others have.
Is because you did NOT read the Guide or Webpage. Others that have file or going file should as well.....
IF you do not PAY the full amount when you file. And split the payments, your application will be DELAYED up to 2months MIN or MORE.
You are told this many times, on Webpage, IN the Guide, AND when you Apply as Sponsor, it warns you again.
So for people that going do this process. If you do not have full amount of money at the time, you should wait til you do.
As it will be delayed 2months, some have been delayed an extra 6months.
If you are not sure your sponsor will be approved, you have the option to have all the money - $75 and application returned.
98% of all sponsors are approved tho.
