processing time for live in caregiver applying in hk

Discussion in 'Foreign Workers' started by angel78, Jul 16, 2011.

  1. Hello....Can any one tell me if how long is the new processing time for live in care giver applying from hk...as i heard it will take 3 mos before receiving the first notice is it true?

  2. Processing Time and Status Requests

    Once the application is submitted and the processing fee has been paid we will conduct a preliminary assessment of the application. We will then send you further instructions by mail, including the instructions for obtaining police certificates and for conducting medical examinations. Please wait at least 10 working days for your instructions to arrive before sending any inquiries about the status of your file. Once you have received the instructions, you must take the medical examinations at the earliest possible date to ensure timely processing of your application. Medical examinations are completed at your own expense and at your own risk. Completing a medical examination does not guarantee that a visa will be issued.

    May we remind you not to resign from your employment until final approval is granted.

    Due to high volume of applications in process, the processing of work permit applications may take 4 months from the time the application is submitted to this office. Some cases may take longer. Instructions or decision will be sent by mail. You may be asked to attend an interview or to submit additional documents. It is your responsibility to satisfy the visa officer that you meet all Canadian immigration requirements. If you fail to attend the interview or do not supply the requested documents within the specified period of time, your application will be refused.

  9. Hi, guys I'm a newbie here and I really need help ATM.

    Is it true that if I apply for a LCP visa in HK, they usually do not need a face to face interview anymore? I am now located in Taiwan and have been working here for 3 almost 3 years. How should I pay the application fee then? What about the submission of the documents?

    Appreciate any replies from you. Thank you very much :)
  10. @wsongco:

    Thank you for your reply through PM, I can't PM you yet. So I write it here. LoL

    I tried to email to Canada Embassy in HK, but perhaps they have been too busy handling cases from several countries' citizens so they haven't replied any of my email :(

    Okay then I think I gotta apply from my home country then. Thank you very much for your advice.

  13. Hello!

    I just re-apply almost two weeks ago for the Live-In Caregiver work permit. I would like to know if it's a requirement to obtain the medical exam? Do they always ask you to obtain one? I'm worried because it's expensive and it usually takes more time.

  14. hi guys,
