    LMIA application processing time?

    I was told by my immigration lawyer, that if they are going to reject it- they will typically just do it there and then. When they contact you and take some time to make a decision, its usually a positive. I wouldn't worry too much although I KNOW how frustrating it can be. My partner (also from...

    LMIA application processing time?

    Hey, Unless I am mistaken your LMIA application doesn't have anything to do with your PR application. You can apply for PR at any time- even from outside of the country.
