my exact receiving date was Dec 17,2018 then I got mail for medical in Feb around 20th. After that i heard from them on august 1st,2019 that my file was tranfered to visa office london. My question is that how many more days are they going to take approx? some people are saying it will take more then 4 months or 6 months?
Be happy that you file got transferred . Now its all depends on how London want to process your application.

One girl received PPR last week (August 10,11) and her file was transferred on July 04. She was November applicant. So, goodluck i hope you and many others like us will not have to wait much after the file gets transferred to LVO.

Hi I am very NEW to all this but with the help of lawyer, submitted my application back in May 1, 2019 ( had my wedding in India on January then returned to Canada) . From May - July 2019 visited my husband in Afghanistan and UAE . CIC asked for the medical exam and Biometric while we were in UAE and my husband completed it in Dubai - CIC confirmed receiving medical result. I had included police certificate for three required countries along with my husband application. How do I know criminality passed? Or currently under security check? Do I contact the CIC call Centre?


Email from CIC (today) Aug 15,2019 :

... This message is being sent to confirm that the Application for Permanent Residence for your relative(s) has been forwarded to the visa office in London for further processing.

Visa Office Contact Information

Should you need to submit additional information or make any further enquiries regarding the Application for Permanent Residence for your relative, you must email the visa office listed above directly using the “IRCC Web Form”. This form is found in the “Enquiries” section of the specific visa office’s link located on this page: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/information/offices/apply-where.asp



What is next?? My lawyer said I have a very strong case so the chances of interview is small but I am worried about security check timing ... I heard LVO takes months to comelete background or security check, is it true? How long does it take to request passport for my husband ?

also I don’t know if I should provide more pictures or evidence of our trips in Afghanistan and UAE and just send it to London Visa Office ? I don’t even have their address or email to send them except the IRCC Web Form ...
Hi dear Madam,
Would you please let us know as If you got AOR or since may you have been waiting for?
Waiting for your kind reply,
Thank you

"The IRCC Office in London is a large office responsible for 17 countries in three different regions (the
British Isles and Nordic Countries, the Gulf, and Pakistan and Afghanistan)"

^ This explains why they can be slow:D

The short answer to your question is you have to wait as many day as it needs. I know this is not what you are looking for but that is the reality. Don't compare with other applicants' processing time, it can be served as ballpark reference, but every case is different.
