    Self-Employed Application 2020

    Thank you for sharing! You've given us hope. I applied in December 2020 so I expect my progress to be a little later than yours. But it's so heartening to see things moving again for a 2020 FSE application. I expect it won't be long now. Reviewing Eligibility or RE is the stage shortly before...

    Self-Employed Application 2020

    This is just so frustrating! Have you tried getting GCMS notes? I tried last December but it's been 5 months and nothing from them. So I requested for another one again last week.

    Self-Employed Application 2020

    Hi, did you submit your application online through the new portal? If they're asking you to resubmit the documents and make a cover letter, please do so. It's a good sign that you actually heard from them. When did they contact you?

    Self-Employed Application 2020

    Go for it. But expect a looong wait time. There's now the option to apply online. I don't know if anyone has ever tried it for FSE and if this speeded things up.

    Just wow. We are in the 16th month mark ourselves! And received our temporary UCI and app number in January 2021 too. And then nothing more.

    Self-Employed Application 2020

    Ridiculous! Does this mean 42 months for those who are going to apply, and not for those who previously applied?

    Self-Employed Application 2020

    We received our passports with visas yesterday! Mine was an SW-1 (Student/Worker), husband's was W-1 (Worker), and 3 kids' were all S-1 (Student). But it was strange that I, my husband, and our daughter (but not our 2 sons) were issued Medical Surveillance letters. It says: "I understand that...

    Hi, I don't have Whatsapp. Also, it's better for you to ask questions here so we can also help others who might have the same questions.

    Hello, I applied on my own as my application was straightforward. I had no issues such as previous visa refusals, etc. Everything you need to know to start applying for a study permit is here...

    Applying for PR and my son has Mild autism

    You should have mentioned it at the time of the medical exam even if there was no official diagnosis yet. Does your son go to a mainstream or special school? Suggest you obtain an official assessment in your home country, and then bring it to Canada. But am not sure how it will pan out. Another...

    Self-Employed Application 2020

    Thank you! :) Ah, that's great! Winter intake. Did you apply for a part-time job right away when you landed? I'm looking to apply now but all student jobs are for summer, in May - September. I guess I have to apply when we land.

    No, I did solid DIY. Hiring a lawyer or agency is expensive.

    Self-Employed Application 2020

    Thank you! We did our medicals under my Study Permit application. It will expire in one year. I'm not sure if we still need to undergo another round of medicals if our FSE app starts moving again in Canada.

    Self-Employed Application 2020

    In my SOP (Statement of Purpose), I stated that I have a pending PR app under FSE and that to prepare for our life in Canada, I have decided to apply as an international student. I did not mention that I was tired of waiting for our PR. My overall tone was positive. And then, I said that at the...

    application for canadian visa (PR) - child with mild autism

    Yes, it's ridiculous that medicals, especially for ASD children, take so long for PR. For SP, we only needed to wait 2 weeks. I wonder why that is. We didn't even need to submit additional documents. I almost did, to try and speed things up but turns out I didn't need to.
