I got PP request along with additional docs (ie. proof that landing fess is paid and passports) to be sent last month. I mailed them through DHL on Jan 13th . Its been a month now and haven't heard anything from them . is this normal with ND . Can someone plz advice me whats the normal timeline for sending the Passport back.have been waiting patiently to get back to my husband since June 2011.
There is no specific timeline to get the passport back. It depends on case to case basis. Generally from what I have observed from the recent couple of ppl who have received PP with shining Visa, it generally takes 2 to 2.5 months from the time of PPR. Again this may vary depending on the complexity of each case.
Even I got PPR on Jan 11th, Sent on 12th jan And Recvd at CHC-ND on 13th Jan. And still waiting for Passport with Visa
Dont Worry have patience. One needs to have a lot of patience in dealing with CHC ND.
Ap per my observations(Again may vary from case to case), From the date of PPR, generally CHC-ND will open our file back after 45 days from PPR. If the case is straight forward they will send the PP with Visa within the next 15 days. So the average time from PPR to get the PP back with visa, it generally takes around 2 months. I Hope this comes true for all of us who are waiting. And Specially Hope that all the senior members receive their PP with Visa at the earliest.
