    There are flights opening up to Russia and it is not a visa country. It's a huge challenge for sure. I would write to them immediately and ask for a 90 day extension due to COVID. They are still saying, I think, that no one's file will be refused or closed due to delays in completing the steps...

    Yes - we send them regular updates. And right before our cancelled interview last March we sent them a lot of other updates as well. Piles of it.

    My Cuban husband was just denied TRV (With dual intent - October 2018 applicants) for the THIRD time. The part that infuriates me is that we are in queue for an interview in Port of Spain - which they insist they will not waive for us (as in "You're not getting out of it, and it must be face to...

    Hi All, for anyone with a Cuban spouse awaiting an interview in Port of Spain, some of us are writing a letter and proposing options to M Mendocino and asking for a swift resolution. If you private message me your email address, you can see the letter and add your name. Right now the letter is...

    I was actually wondering - for all of us awaiting interviews...is there a piece of legislation or a policy that states that ONLY the foreign spouse is selected for an interview? Why aren't the Canadian spouses interviewed? If they are looking for the validity of the relationship, both spouses...

    WE are. 27 months in the process so far. This is what I got back yesterday: Good day, Due to the ongoing pandemic all IRCC offices are operating at reduced staffing levels in Latin America and the Caribbean. The migration office in Port of Spain is not in a position to conduct interviews...

    Port of Spain Office, Trinidad and Tobago

    We ALL need to be writing to our MP offices and to the Trinidad High Commission asking "What is the plan, after 10 months of pandemic conditions, to manage the backlog of interviews that the IRCC has deemed necessary?" Ask very specific questions, and ask what is the plan for your file in...

    I understand that everyone is frustrated - so are my husband and myself, and our kids. The issue isn't only paper-based applications. Part of working in the health care system (and before that with a provincial government body as a senior advisor) is the adherence to privacy legislation. When...

    I get how at first glance this looks unfair, and how you can feel upset about it. However, this seems to me to be a very short-sighted understanding of the real situation: 1) Our hospitals cannot currently handle any more patients. If alcohol is not easily available for alcoholics, they will...

    Hey All - I am one of three women with a spouse waiting on an interview in POS. Our spouses are from Cuba and we have all been in the sponsorship process more than 2 years. Our interviews were cancelled in March due to COVID. We have had no news on "Plan B" since then - but yesterday I received...

    Has anyone received any word of a possibility of having their interview by Zoom or phone call from POS? We are still awaiting an interview (it was cancelled for March 23 as COVID hit). We have money tied up in flights and with the pre-paid live interpreter, but I am hoping that things will...

    LOTS of people getting passport requests today out of Havana! This is good news for many! Unfortunately not us - we have passed the 2 year mark and are still waiting on an interview in Port of Spain. But I am very happy for all of those that have already been approved or soon will be and don't...
