Hi everyone. I’m a June 6, 2017 applicant and received the prearrival letter in May 2018 but our application is still pending (full timeline at bottom of msg). We did MP inquiry after the 1 year mark and were told that they have everything they need and everything on the file is passed except security which started on May 16, 2018 and it’s still pending - they told us all we can do is wait. I don’t know why it’s taking so long for the security - does anybody know how I can escalate this? The MPs office has been providing updates to us every 4 weeks but not sure what else I can do to make things happen faster since it’s been 3.5 months since security started. It’s getting pretty ridiculous considering our application was very straight forward and we patiently waited the 12 months and now this.

@Mrdi-khsta @raul_sk @Billu_PB @taraana @GipNav @Dania2125 @manbrar @pnoor101 are ur applications still pending? Based on the msgs in this forum it seemed like ur applications were past the 1 year mark too and I’m wondering if it’s also stuck in security? @upkar singh do u have any advice?

We’re thinking of applying for an open work permit so we can at least be together while our application gets finalized. Does anybody know the processing time for this? I couldn’t find it online.

Any advice would help. Thanks in advance.
Ps sorry for the long post!

Hello All,
I applied for my wife (PA) in january 2018, PA visa office is NDVO.
After applying for my wife(PA), I (Sponsor) visited her for her birthday in India for three weeks.
Should i tell this information to CIC. If yes, how can i inform CIC? and what impact it has on the file?

Thanks for your reply.
Tbh I’ve read that the case specific inquiry isn’t that helpful in my case since the MP is essentially doing the same thing each time they ask for an update on the application from immigration. I’m expecting another update from the MP office next week, if still no update then I’ll send a case specific inquiry.

Do you know how long an open work permit takes to process?
