Nairobi/Dar es Salaam federal applicantion status

Discussion in 'Visa Offices in Africa' started by Chemi, Apr 13, 2017.

  1. I check my profile and they say they need additional documents...yet i ve not received any email.
  2. H
    Have you received mail yet regarding additional docs? Or any kind of changes?
  3. Nothing.
    And for u, do u have any updates?
  4. Nope .... not a single pin changed yet ☹️☹️☹️
  5. Been checking on the forums, the request for additional documents happens when you request for GCMS. First i was happy because i thought ,atleast someone touched my file, but its not the case.
  6. Actually it does mean someone touched your file. You will see when the GCMS notes arrive. At times files lie untouched for a long period and the GCMS force someone to have a look at it
  7. Thats good to hear. I ve been waiting for a long time for their decision. How was your experience with the Nairobi visa office?
  8. During the time I thought they took long with my file but looking at other people's stories I think it actually went well. Be prepared to apply for GCMS notes every month to help push them along though
  9. I will do that. I hope to get PPR soon.
  10. I wrote to the High Commission and for the second time they responded with the same default email..

  11. Why they don’t reply? What r they doing?? Totally frustrating now
  12. They ve finally respoded saying my case is still under active review. @BaNana82 is right, when u order for GCMS notes they are forced to look at ur file.
  13. Ohhh God knows when their review finished!! ☹️☹️☹️ In my GCMS ,Security is not started yet.. they just withheld this security for “access of information act”.... Do you know what does actually mean this Act??
  14. I do not know what that means but i ve seen on the forums that you could order CBSA/CSIS notes..When did u order ur GCMS notes?
  15. I did GCMS last month 25th nd got notes on 23rd February.... for what purpose does use this CBSA/CSIS?? First time I heard that word..
