    Yes that's right. My husband just did exactly that today - got his new SIN after crossing the border with the COPR on Friday.

    Finally received COPR in the mail today...in two weeks it will be one year since we applied. Just to add one final twist to this immigration journey, it was accompanied by a 4-page letter of instructions that is entirely in French. We don't speak much French.... so.... Does anyone have an...

    Does anyone know how long it usually takes to get an appointment at a CIC office? We are in PEI, so I guess our nearest office is Halifax? Just wondering if it might take longer to schedule an appointment than to drive to and from the nearest border....

    So...silly question...when we are sending in passport copies, photos etc. in the final document request before COPR, why do we have to inclose TWO prepaid envelopes? One for the COPR now and one for the PR card later??? Or am I somehow misreading what they want and they actually mean that we use...

    I wish I could help, but who knows what they have done??? My guess is that they made a mistake that you will unfortunately have to follow up on to make sure it is corrected. They sure don't make that easy with the 'oh-so-helpful' call centre agents and emails that often go unanswered... All I...

    Thanks very much for the information and the link - very helpful! We have now sent an address change via that link as well as the online form on another page. Hopefully that fulfils their shouted request to inform the visa office of the address change IN WRITING :).

    Outlier... My husband (applicant) is a NZ citizen and we were living in NZ when we applied, so we were expecting to go through Sydney office. He is also an Argentine citizen, so not sure if that has somehow slowed down the whole process??? We applied in December 2014. Hope you hear news soon-...

    Woohoo!!! Finally received an email from Ottawa tonight requesting passport copies, passport photos (why do they even ask us to send photos with the original application?) and information update (particularly important since they seem to have completely ignored all our previous attempts to...

    Thanks for the encouraging words :) After today's grumpy conversation ruined my morning, I think I will wait a few more days before trying again. And I did tell him that it said 'Decision Made' online and that is why I wanted to confirm the address - exactly the same strategy as you suggest...

    Yes, I have already done that and it shows my Canadian address correctly (I am the sponsor). However, when I received my case notes that I requested a couple of days ago, it looked like they had failed to update my spouse's address, so they may have him as still living in NZ despite the fact...

    Congrats! I see that you have been waiting even longer than us, so I hope it is all over for you soon!!! :)

    That's for sure...It has been almost 3 weeks since our 'Decision Made', so I decided to phone the call centre to make sure they did indeed have our updated Canadian address (instead of our New Zealand one) just in case there was a time-sensitive request being sent to us for passports or...

    Yes, that would be us... still waiting (not so patiently...) to hear something from them in the post or by email. Nothing yet. Will let you know if we receive anything. We haven't phoned the call centre yet, as we figured we have already been waiting since December, so what's another week or...

    Wow - I couldn't believe my eyes when I checked ECAS today and finally saw 'Decision Made'!!! We are December 2014 applicants with permanent resident a New Zealand/Argentine citizen and with one child - we had not heard a word from Ottawa since our application was transferred to Ottawa (instead...

    Congratulations!!! You have inspired me to keep on checking just when I had decided that we had somehow got lost in the mix and would be "In process" forever :) (We applied in December). Good luck with the next stages!!!

    Hello everyone, As I have ben reading through this thread I have noticed that most of the people still waiting for permanent residency approval seem to have applied January 2015 or later... Is there anyone else out there like me who applied for outland spousal sponsorship in December 2014...

    Hello all, Haven't checked this forum or ecas for a few months...just assumed we had to wait until December or so for a decision. Thought I would check now that my husband is about to head overseas for a few weeks and saw that it says 'In process' on ecas. For some reason I can't update my info...
