Hi nhl1011 and Veronica, I am in the same situation as you are guys, I sent my application to Mississauga May 19, 2011, and Buffalo received my Application July 11, 2011, I got my AOR August 8, 2011----- my e-cas still states: we received your application for pr july 11, 2011, medical have been received - that is all- no "in Progress".
What I noticed is that we are all in Canada now, I am in Toronto and I have post graduate work permit. Do you have guys lawyer or you sent on your own?
I am in Toronto, I have visitor record....didn't apply for work permit in 2009 after finish my master degree...
Me and my wife have been living together since 2006, never seperated for more than a month...travelled a lot...etc etc...I think everyone thinks their case is straight forward when they apply,but that doesnt mean what vo thinks...and I don't think that has nothing to do with processing time.
Btw I am a Chinese citizen...I think that means sth. They might deal with us citizen's cases first, since buffalo is in us? I'd like to think in that way...cuz for me I should've sent to Beijing...
Btw I hired immigration consultant to prepare/organize our documents.
If I did send my case to Beijing, i might have a result long long long time ago...buffalo vo sucks. They don't have any certain rules or orders...which make me go nuts!
I got another visitor extension, and getting my 3rd notes in couple days...I will fire at buffalo with all 3 notes and 2 visitor extension. I don't give a ****about what they reply, I will just tell them how patience I was, and how they responded to my patience by doing nth to my case for 7 months!
All I want is a result...accept, interview, reject any of them is ok with me.
