Hi everyone, I want to give my update:
October 30th we got asked to come in for a marriage interview.
November 13th we completed the marriage interview.
Our case officer said our marriage was genuine however since my husband was deported we needed to get authorization for returning to Canada (ARC) and pay a 400$ fee.
Novemeber 20th all required documents were submitted payments were paid
November 26th they said they never got my email- resubmitted.
December 4th his status changed to DECISION MADE
December 5th recieved an EMAIL asking for passport, two photos, and copy of letter (As well as an update on any changes)

We will be sending everything tomorrow and my husband will return to Canada! We have been accepted!!!! YAHOOOO.

8 month journey. I will give an update once he lands.
hello,

I wanted to give another update:

Last week we received a letter saying we had a decision that was ready to be picked up. My husband went to Mexico City today, picked it up and it was his visa and also confirmation of permanent residency. He is coming to Canada on Thursday.

I will give an update once he lands and does the landing interview.

Once mine switched to decision made I received an email the next day or two days later stating my application was being finalized and to send the passport. Decision made means they’ve either approved or declined you!

Where you check the online application if it says decision made then they’ve approved you likely!

Manila Visa Office

In my opinion once your application is transferred to VO's outside Canada. It can take 1 to 3 months per reply depending on how busy they are. On average Manila Visa office would communicate with me every 20 to 50 days
