3 months since medical passed, biometrics done, sponsrship approval... But no file transfr yet.. Can someone guide what to do other than wait? Feb 2019 applicant here
I'm in the same situation as you are. Feb 13th applicant. Visa office for Pakistan applicants is London which has a backlog. Looks like they are working November applicant. It will be a while before they start working on February files.

February 04th applicant from Pakistan and I have same situation, MR,BR,SA all received on March 15 and after that silence and no update of file transfer to London.

Btw I did call Sydney office, they said that they will be working on the preliminary requirement on application here in Sydney and after that they will send to local VO, So in either case our files will eventually will go to London (that's what I believe). I hope that will be soooon.

Hi just got a quick question. So I'm sponsoring my wife and we got the passport request email on June 30th i believe and we submitted her passport on July 2nd. Now the visa office where she is is asking for her to come pick up her passport. If she picks it up and everything tomorrow, does that mean I can start booking a flight to Canada? Also i will be posting my timeline here later for others that are nearly on the same boat as us to view. Good luck to everyone and thank you in advance!!
I recommend you double check all details on the COPR and Visa to ensure it matches her official document before booking flights . If presence of any errors, the passport needs to be returned to the embassy for correction. If your wife have a very long name and its shortened on the COPR then its not a mistake, they do it due to character limits. Don’t need to get it corrected.

Thanks a lot mate. Appreciate your help. Yeah I’m definitely going to check everything on the COPR before actually booking the flight. Cheers !

Yeah, everything is ok. Just at some point I realized I was subscribed and reading all the threads from Dec 2018 to Apr 2019. And it got too much :D I was just overwhelmed with all those messages and stopped reading them at all. Now unsubscribed from everything except Dec and Feb, and it's become much easier :)

That’s great news!!
Have you had your medical yet? If not, it’ll be medical and file transfer, but depends on which Visa Office you’re waiting for as some are very backlogged.
Again, great news :)
