Hi Nithin
It helps to check with the airlines but I can tell you as an Indian passport holder we did not have a problem transiting through UK, Switzerland, Netherlands and Paris as we had a valid visa / PR card for Canada.
I would reiterate that you check with the airline and to be sure you can call the respective embassy as well.
Hope this helps
best regards

Please wait until you receive the correspondence before sending us additional information, as the correspondence will outline all information that is required"

this is worrying me as;
Required information already provided electronically (forms, PCCs, RPRF receipt) - as specifically stated in the email from LBM.
I got a thank you reply email from LBM for sending documents
Medical done on Aug. 10, (Physician confirmed uploading the results on Aug. 13)

Kindly guide and advice if original of above electronically provided documents need to be send via courier as well.

Hi Ali,

Did you get your ITA on 29th July?
Has this status just come up recently?

Also, does it take 3 days to submit the medical? My medical is scheduled for 26th, and 27th is the doctor's last working day... he's going on leave for 2 - 3 weeks.. I hope that he will be able to upload it before that..
Also, can you tell me what medical type category he did? (Zahra hospital, correct?)

Hi all from Dubai,

It's high time that we start our 'own thread', like others are doing here !!!

I request all to post your timlines here and get connected. Firstly, it will sail us thru on this long agonising waiting period. Secondly, thru networking we can help each other on info sharing and act as morale boosters. Thirdly, we'll expand our 'Friends-Circle', both here as well as post landing.

Quite a few of us, in Dubai, are already in touch with each other. Some are thru, some just applied, while some are waiting for our PPRs. Let's expand the network... what do you say buddies ?

Warm regards.
Hi Qorax,
I am in Dubai as well but applied for my CSQ (QSWP) from my home country in Africa. I just came here now and will soon start working. If my CSQ comes now, can I apply for the Federal Stage from Dubai or I must go back home and apply to the visa office serving my country?

Please guide me.........and other seniors plzz thanks

European countries do not require transit visa proviso if you have ticket to your final destination (Canada). I had landed at Frankfurt (first landing) and Amsterdam (2nd time)...No Issues..

Has anyone applied for the PCC on the dubai police app? I just applied for myself and spouse..but am worried that it may come via email... is that acceptable? They say it wont be stamped but will have an online verification instead using a PIN...
Is that alright?

I endedup going onto the "apply online" link through the CIC website..and the option was to apply immediately for the e-certificate.
Thanks
