Lokoloko...observation seems plausible.
For instance..CHC has asked for PCC of my elder son who turned 18 Nov 2011.
I feel all this ( as I mentioned to DBC) is to show that processing / checking of docs is in progress BUT ALSO to gain time by CHC.Now the applicant cannot withdraw his / her application because one would be under the impression that MR ...etc...will shortly be on the way.Waiting...waiting...may take upto 6 - 8 months.One has no choice but to hope that everything goes well.
And if CHC rejects any case (God forbid) ..all plans down the drain.
i send an enquiry to chc -DELHI office regarding address change on 23-feb-2012, yesterday i got this reply.
This is in response to your recent email enquiry to the Immigration Section of the High Commission of Canada in New Delhi.
Information regarding change of address has been updated on your application.Your application has now been reviewed by a visa officer.
Unless we have specifically asked you to do so, you are not required to submit any documentation at this time. Our office will contact you to provide any additional supporting documentation for the assessment of your application.
If you applied as a Federal Skilled Worker on or after 27 February 2008 and before 26 June 2010, processing of your application is likely to begin in 2012; however, finalization may not occur until after 2012.
Unfortunately, it will take longer to process federal skilled worker applications submitted under the first set of instructions (between 27 February 2008 and 25 June 2010) than originally projected. During this time, the department received applications for more than 425,000 people, and 144,000 of these have not yet received a decision. This number represents more than twice the number of projected admissions under the federal skilled worker program in 2011.
Applications in the Skilled Worker category are processed in order of receipt. Your application forms and fees guarantee your place in the processing queue. Your file is being processed in accordance with its place in the queue, based on the date on which the application and fee payment were received in our office
Until we contact you, the only information you are required to provide us in order to update your application is:
- Change of address or contact information, including email address
- Change in your family composition
- Request to withdraw your application and refund the application fees
- Submission of an Arranged Employment Opinion approved by Human Resources and Social Development Canada
- Change to your representation
If you wish to engage, change, or revoke a paid representative, the form IMM 5476 Use of a Representative, available at this link: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/information/applications/representative.asp
, must be completed and signed by you then sent to our office. In all correspondence with our office, remember to quote your file number, full name, and date of birth.
Processing times to finalization may vary depending on the number of new applications received and the individual complexity of each application. Applicants can check the status of their case on the CIC website by clicking on Client Application Status.
