Just a friendly FYI. Don't bother reaching out to the CIC via the web form...You won't hear back from them in time to make any adjustments to your online application. I noticed the file I uploaded for my Physical presence glitched out when I saved it and displayed 0 days!! Obviously, I noticed this right after I submit my application. I emailed them 5-10 minutes after I selected submit, advising them to just let me re-upload that file, I also attached that file to the webform so they could do it. I had no response for about 2 months and before they responded, they advised me to re-submit my application again with the correct file. They quite literally have the worst system in place and because of that, I lost 3 months of waiting. They need to get some better customer service or hire more people to do this basic job. It cannot take more than 2 months to get a simple reply are we still living in the 1800s?
