    MARCH 2014 OUTLAND APPLICANTS

    My husband got the request for 2 additional police certificates during the application process. I think mostly to assure that he didn't go on a crime spree after sending in the clean record :) He had nothing to hide, but I agree that it's a total pain! He landed a week ago so it's not...

    MARCH 2014 OUTLAND APPLICANTS

    He landed in Toronto. It went really quickly, just the same questions I read about in these forums. "Have you ever committed a crime?" "What's your address and phone number in Canada?" "Do you have children?" Filling out the B4 form helped a lot. Made the process much quicker because he knew...

    MARCH 2014 OUTLAND APPLICANTS

    I'm guessing it means the case is straightforward :) Those notes are from a month ago at least and you recently went In Process so I imagine the officer is reviewing it now The only other place in the forum where that wording is mentioned (that I could find, anyway) is for a user named...

    MARCH 2014 OUTLAND APPLICANTS

    We took the passport directly to the VAC. They gave us a number so we could track the passport and sent the same updates through mobile text If you received any kind of code you can track it on the VAC website for the office it was sent to.. if you sent it to one. Nothing showed up on our ecas...

    Paris Office Timeline

    Ah.. yeah, I wondered if we would get our stuff back too. I think if it wasn't handed over directly we might not have. That thing was so heavy, it would have cost them a lot to send it all back! We got the Visa on Wednesday. My husband will be here next week inshallah. I should probably get...

    JUNE 2014 OUTLAND applicants

    No problem! I'm sorry to hear about your loss. Not many things make the waiting easier, but things like that sure remind us how precious our time is and how sweet it is to be with our loved ones. I liked the notes because it had me waiting for something I could count on in 30 days or so. An end...

    JUNE 2014 OUTLAND applicants

    I applied in March and they marked us In Progress after the interview (obviously they started working on the file before that or we wouldn't have had an interview!) Some VOs don't update as much as we would like. Did you order any case notes? They tend to take the full 30 days to email them...

    MARCH 2014 OUTLAND APPLICANTS

    We have a tracking number also. So far it has told us when it left the VAC to the Paris office and when Paris received it. Also when Paris sent it back. I like the over-information. We were able to set it up as a text so we can get away from the computers too. We're hoping tomorrow that it can...

    Question about COPR

    It looks like you already hang out on this thread, but I found this if you want to ask her directly :) It looks like you can drop it off in the morning and pick it up at 3pm. But I couldn't find a clear proof of that for you yet!

    Passport was dropped off on Sunday at the VAC in Algiers. It should be at the Paris office today. Just got Decision made within the last couple of hours, but I don't know if that means they got the passport or if they're just updating from the PPR Happy news anyway!

    Passport Drop-off/ Visa Pick-up at the VAC in Algiers, ALGERIA

    Never mind. It's "within 5 days." They (the VAC) are mailing the passport to Paris and then they'll email when it comes back. They said they had no idea how long it would take. We were hoping to have him home Thursday, but we will have to wait until next week to be on the safe side and allow...

    Labelling additional sheets

    If the 150 pages are relationship evidence, that is different. You can refer to it and place it in a separate envelope (still sent with the entire application) The "additional information" would be if there isn't enough room on the form to answer the question fully. For example, if the applicant...

    Passport Drop-off/ Visa Pick-up at the VAC in Algiers, ALGERIA

    It's mostly this line that we can't figure out: Déposer le(s) passeport(s) au CRDV et le retirer dans un délai de 5 jours ouvrables. Is it "in 5 days" or "within 5 days" or something else?
