App Sent: Jan. 15, 2018
App. Delivered : January 22, 2018

No progress after this. I contacted IRCC back in October and they said the application was still withing the regular processing times.

I am a bit worried as it will be 12 months after my application was received in January.

Should I contact them again?

Thanks.

Hi KRP,

How many family members you are? will you mind to tell and where r u from?
You seem to be very much upset. My timelines are in the spreadsheet.
Read your post that you recently contacted the call center with no success.
My advice is to use webform once you cross your anniversary date in Jan 2019.
The people who filed application in Jan /feb/Mar 2018 but got test invitation in oct/nov are the lucky ones who are getting Oath invitation.
Next all applications are not from the GTA so we cannot compare with anyone who has filed from other regions.

I'm in the same situation, IP since April. I've contacted them on October too, and they said everything is ok with our application and process is normal. For now I think nothing will happen before mid-January. I decided to wait and not contact them again, in case the impact is negative, who knows !

Don't worry. You will get the invite soon and then the process is fast once you have the test invite.

Patience is the key factor. You will get test invite in the new year along with a Oath invitation at the earliest.

Its frustrating but cant do anything!!!!!
