Kumalo being a July 1st 2011 to June 30th 2012 applicant, seems to be the first member in this forum to have received a med request. This gives me a mix feeling of hope and doubts at the same time for the following reasons:
I'm hopeful because i think Dakar applications could equally be processed as fast as in the case of Kumalo.
I'm doubtful because i think the reason why Kumalo's application was processed this fast is because he resides already in Canada.

What do u members think of this mu opinion .
For sure it is because he resides already in Canada. i know one friend his was processed very fast also. That is the simple truth.

But i am sure they will not delay with the application like the did with ours.

Hello All, it has been quiet in here. I have been soo busy and I know y'all too. I recieved medical forms for my son on feb 14 and i completed the exams on the 19. It was mailed on the 22 feb, and i am now waiting to hear from immigration about visa. My passport has been with them since November 2012.

Manoh, for QSW it is hard to say. I have a friend who applied for quebec and we both did medicals in october 2012. He recieved his visa in January 2013.
My cousin applied in 2008 for quebec, and she got medicals done in late Jan 2013, She was recently asked to send her passports.
I don't know your process, but if you just did medicals, you should be getting pp request and pr fees any time soon (what do you think canadaforall?). Hang in there buddy, you r almost there.

Hey every one ,
momentum seems to have left this forum.
I know every body on this forum will be pointing figures at the Dakar visa office
for their slow rate of processing our files. To be frank our visa is the slowest in the world.
Cheer up guys we just need to stay focused and patient.

Hello Guys, long time. Kinda quiet in here. Well, just wanted to let you guys know that i had DM on my ecas, and my visa has been issued. I have been asked to schedule for a pickup of the pp.
I thank God for answering my prayers, it has been 5 yrs since i started the process, but u know what, God's timing is the best.
Thank you all for the support, it really gave me hope and encouraged me to hang in there. I pray that those who are waiting for ppr, visas, etc will be blessed with good news.

cheers :D

[I see a spirit of togetherness in this forum, lets keep the flames. I got some good news.

A third line was added on my e-cas status on March 27th saying: we have started processing your application (In process)
Then on April 9th they send an e-mail requesting for my PP and RPRF. I have paid the money and they received my PP on the 25th of March. They added that the processing period for the issuance of the visa is 6-8weeks. What am unsure is whether they will respect this timeline.

Any body got a clue when they can send my PP back to me?

What I have come to understand is that the processing time for an application depends on several factors including:

- Each individual application (verification of documents and security clearances)
- Medical reports ( medical conditions which will pose a harm to the residents of Canada
- Visa office (depending on workload)
- incomplete applications or poor photocopies or poor translations and wrong methods of paying fees
- Your NOC code (field of professional training), preference is given to occupations where they lack the labor
- the province your applying to or the immigration program your following ( prefered trade for QSW n provincial nominees seem to be
processed faster
- Country of origin (some countries lack poor filing and record keeping systems as a result verification of documents is extremely difficult.
Fraud, bribery and corruption even makes matters worst. Postal systems too can be sometimes very terrible. Things look even more frighthening if the country of origin has not got an embassy or a consulate that handle PR applications. In such a case u must use only a credit card or a financial partner institution to pay for your application.

I certainly may have forgotten some other points. Can anyone just hint me when they think I can get my PP back after it was received on the 25th of April?

ANIMO AND COURAGE AND THE SPIRIT OF NO RETREATING BACK TO YOU ALL
