    Self-Employed Application 2020

    Yes, I read that....but it's not exactly clear if the extended processing times apply to you even if the application is received already or if it's the processing time that was listed at the time of receipt that is applicable. There's a 10 month difference there!

    Self-Employed Application 2020

    Question about processing times. If I got my temp. AOR/acknowledgement that they got my application 4 months ago, and the processing time was 24 months at that point, is THAT the processing time I should be considering.....or am I staring down the barrel of 34 months regardless of when they...

    Nope. Just the "temporary AOR/Hey we got your application" letter

    Self-Employed Application 2020

    Hi Viktoryia, I'm also a photographer and applied under this stream. I attached as much relevant information as I could throw at the wall, basically. This included: - Examples of varied work for private clients, organizations, and publications - Proof of published work in the US and...

    Awesome, we are looking at the Maritimes as well (it's been a lifelong dream of mine) What kind of novels do you write? I'm one of those "started a novel years ago and have just never finished it" types. LOL

    When did you apply/get AOR?

    Self-Employed Application 2020

    I was under the impression that if you are granted PR, you are granted a work permit for Canada. Is that not the case with this stream??

    Self-Employed Application 2020

    Potentially stupid question: When we sent our application in (via lawyer) we sent it in with fingerprints taken at a biometrics office in the states. This along with the FBI background check/police certificate. I also paid the biometrics fee up front. Is that biometrics? Or will I have to do...

    US Based Applicants for Federal Self-Employed

    I was curious if I could start a separate thread for keeping tabs on people applying from the US for Federal Self-Employed. With all the unknowns with regards to process times, response from the visa office, etc. I thought it may be helpful. Anyone else here US based and applying under this...

    Self-Employed Application 2020

    Ugh, just saw that....Just talked to my lawyer this morning who told me the processing times field had been down for awhile, so they must have JUST updated it. That's.....depressing.

    Self-Employed Application 2020

    You have to figure, there's not a ton of people with the funds to use the entrepreneur stream or start up. There's not a ton of artists, musicians, etc. There's not a ton of world class athletes. It's not a oft-utilized stream....as opposed to EE, which is used by many.

    Self-Employed Application 2020

    But it's only really worthwhile to know how many business stream immigration applications there are. Like I said, put 1000 up against 400,000, it sounds terrible. But if there's a really low amount of business stream applications, like sub 5000, it's not really that bad.

    Self-Employed Application 2020

    This is good information to have, but I really wish they would publish the average amount of applications they get a year for each stream. That would give us a better look at statistical odds. 1000 entries a year is great if they're only getting, say, 2000 applicants a year under that stream...
