CPC-M Started processing our application.MAY 7, 2007:
CPC-M Received the information they requested from my mother. (I'm not sure what this was, it may have been, the proof of relationship and other requirements).OCT 10, 2007:
CIC Sent medical instructions to my mother. My mother took the medical exams a week right after she received it, and some time in this month, CIC received medical results.*Some time in this month also, my mother was approved to sponsor us.NOV 28, 2007:
CEM received our application from CIC.MARCH 2008:
We received and application kit and letter from CEM to submit requirements like, CENOMAR, NBI, NSO Birth Certificate of myself, 2 siblings, and my father.APRIL 2008:
CEM sent us the medical request. Some time in this month, we all went to St. Luke's to take the medical exam.MAY 2008, JUNE 2088, JULY 2008, AUGUST 2008, SEPTEMBER 2008, OCTOBER 2008, NOVEMBER 2008, DECEMBER 2008, JANUARY 2009, FEBUARY 2009, MARCH 2009.
(Status in ECAS at these times IN PROCESS).*Were not sure when did the CEM receive our medical results. Apparently, we haven't heard from the embassy for a year.APRIL 2009:
We received another application kit. The same, as the first one we received. Also, we submitted requirements for the 2nd time, because the 1st one already expired.JUNE 26 2009:
We received medical request from CEM for 2nd time. Because the first one already expired.*Some time in this month, we went to Comprehensive Pulmonary Clinic this time to take the medical exam. (I suggest not to go to this clinic because, they may have been one of the reasons for the delay of our application).*Were not sure when did the CEM receive our medical results. This time we haven't heard from them for ALMOST a year.JULY 2009, AUGUST 2009, SEPTEMBER 2009, OCTOBER 2009, NOVEMBER 2009, DECEMBER 2008, JANUARY 2010, FEBUARY 2010, MARCH 2010, APRIL 2010.
My mother received a letter from CIC, saying that she needs to pay $940.00 for Right of Permanent Resident Fee (RPRF). I think that's for all of us already.*Some time before May 28, 2010, she settled the amount.MAY 28, 2010:
We received medical request for the 3rd time and a letter that says we need to submit the requirement again. This time, they only asked for the NBI Clearance, they didn't ask for CENOMAR and NSO Birth Certificate. (We still took a hold of these papers, though. We kind of expected they would ask for it again ).*We went to the Comprehensive Pulmonary Clinic to take the medical exams the same day. (We figured, it would be best to go to the same clinic since they already have our files).
JUNE 9, 2010:
We received the, the elusive, Passport request (PPR) LC2 Appendix A or B, (I forgot).JUNE 12, 2010:
I personally mailed our passports to CEM in RCBC.*Sometime in this month, after not checking ECAS for a long time, because like I said before, our ECAS status was “IN PROCESS” for almost 2 years, I figured I can check ECAS again. And there you go. Our status was changed into DECISION MADE (DM). I'm not sure when did this change occur
.JUNE 25, 2010 Manila:
We received another letter from the embassy, the IMM5405 (04-2008)E, Information updates like, address and marital status. We filled it out and personally mailed it to the embassy.JUNE 25, 2010 Vancouver, BC:
My mother received a letter from CIC, saying that she needs to go to an interview on JULY 14, 2010. Formality lang daw ito. And she needs to pay another amount for our PR ID's na ata.
Now, were just waiting for our passports with the visa, which we expect to come some time after my mom's interview.
Sana po wag naman kayo mawalan ng pag asa. And don't think na magiging ganito rin katagal ang process ng sa inyo. We have our reasons. For one, My Dad, moved to the UAE back here in the Phils. My sister was diagnose with TB daw. Sabi ng Pulmonary. We doubt that. She took the sputum test and it was negative. Eh ang tagal bago ilabas ang result nun. 3 months. I base this timeline sa mga letters na natatanggap naming and sa ECAS.
