    Hello, So, you have to ask your VO which courier companies they prefer. This will be key in delivering and receiving your documents on time. Nairobi sends a message with these preferred companies: DHL, UPS, TNT, FedEx. I used FedEx because I know that the VO uses them quite frequently from my...

    Hello, Sorry, I landed at rainbow bridge. I walked over to the US border. At the rainbow bridge, there is a pedestrian walkway. Just follow that pedestrian walkway. As mentioned in my earlier post, No US visa is needed. You state that you want to flagpole, then you get administrative refusal...

    You received your passport 4 weeks ago? Try to go to the border as soon as possible so that you can get your health card and official PR card sooner. I used the Canada/Buffalo border.

    Hey, I flagpoled as mentioned earlier in this thread. You just go to the border closest to you. You have to leave Canada, and cross into the US and inform them that you are flag poling. Then come back to Canada, and say that you flagpoled at the US and you would like to land. It's fairly...

    NAIROBI OUTLAND APPLICANTS 2014

    My passport was with them since June 30, 2015. After I did my medicals in July, I called the office where I did my medicals, and they confirmed that my emedical file was available for assessment. I got no confirmation from the visa office when my medicals were received. I sent many emails, but...

    So Nairobi VO has your passport already? No, it shouldn't take them that long to get back to you. Have you tried to ask them how long it will take for them to send it back via email? Also, ask your spouse to contact their MP to investigate the situation. Nairobi VO had my passport since June...

    Nairobi does not extend medicals in most cases. You will most likely have to resubmit medicals, but wait for them to request them or email them now and ask them if they would like you to resubmit medicals. If they request your passport, it will take them a minimum of three weeks before they...

    Thanks so much. I am trying to be grateful that we have gotten this far, but when you are close you get even more impatient. I know all assessments on my file have been completed, as there's a "decision made" on my Ecas, but I don't know why they haven't sent out the passport already.

    Hello, Yes, part of it was because my medicals expired. They would have returned my passport after a month, back in July, but they were going to give me 3 days to land...which I wasn't able to do at the time. @Alwy, expect to wait for about a month. I still haven't received my passport. I...

    If the sponsor is a Canadian citizen or PR residing in Canada, you can contact the relevant local MP for assistance. Each MP's office is different. Some wait until the processing time for the VO has passed (i.e for Nairobi that would be 20 months), but others are glad to help provide...

    VO did not confirm receipt of medicals, but MP's office confirmed that for me last week. They have stopped replying to my emails, but there's not much else for me to ask. I just have to be patient a little while longer

    Getting an appointment at the nearest CIC office can take up to 2-3 months. This depends largely on which city you will be moving to.

    @ simbakubwa Once you get passport, you will receive instructions on how to proceed. They will give you two options; schedule an appointment at a CIC office closest to you (within Canada) or the applicant has to leave and re-enter the country via the border or the airport. With the option...
