It was in the same letter although, for the record, the one I received doesn't say it's an AOR at least not specifically, but it does give the following pointers:
- Processing time once it's in the Mexico city office is 6 months and can take longer for incomplete/complicated applications.
- That you must receive this letter after 60 days, otherwise you should contact the office via email or mail, providing your application number, name, date of birth, phone number and email address for the office to send you a copy.
It also says that they WILL request for processing at this time:
= Payment of Right of Permanent Residence Fee (instructions in cic.gc.ca)
= Mexican Police Certificate (instructions and letter enclosed)
Any documents being sent must have a label attached on the top right corner with the "file number" (which is in this letter)
This is what worries me
Immigrant visas have a validity limited to one year from the date when the medical examinations were initiated or the validity of the passport which ever is first. Please ensure to have a valid passport. No extensions are granted once visas are issued.
It goes on to say that the interview may or may not be required, but if it is so, you will be notified of the appointment's date approximately one month in advance, and that if you fail to show up or bring everything they ask for the interview, the entire application WILL be denied because it's in direct violation to the Immigrant and Refugee Protection Act, following sections 11 and 41.
They also request for me to tell them if any of my personal circumstances change, in particular of family composition, change of address (email address too), change of representative, or a request for withdrawal.
The Police Record (Carta de Antecedentes Registrales) has a validity of 15 natural days from the signing date, and the formal consular request has a validity fo 90 days, ... which I just realized are from dec 22. No biggy, I just booked a flight to (ugh...) Mexico city. Bonbon, are you casually there? I still don't know who I'll be staying with there haha, I don't have money for 10 days of hotel.
Furthermore, we must send the police record within 60 days for the application to continue processing. eCAS doesn't show anything still although the application number in this letter is different from the original of the application submitted in Canada, and I can indeed access eCAS with these numbers (and my info, not my wife's), but it doesn't show anything at all either.
Hope this helps
