Lesson no. 1 is so on point! You couldn’t have said it any better! CONGRATULATIONS!!!With the grace of God the almighty, finally this tough hardship has come to end today!!
I finally got my PPR !!
I can write books about my journey , about life since Jan.28th when I received my first set of GCMS notes & found that eligibility was RR but it was stated clearly ( not met, for refusal on A11.2 basis ) due to NOC mismatch with job duties . I still remember that gasp of startle I had when I saw what was written on my eligibility. It was a shock to me that I was subject to rejection because I was very careful with the application, I made sure I read every word , revised every paper , I have already been working on this step 1 year before applying , all that toil, time & money will go in vain ?? Seriously??
However, I had to set my shock aside & stand up for myself. On the very second day I managed to get a new employment reference letter , raised a CSE explaining my reasons & provided them with the right NOC codes for my work experience & asked them to reconsider my plea upon review , then waited & waited & waited……
Everyday I was swinging between hope & despair , I had a hunch I would get it eventually but this long made me lose my self confidence then a lot of anexity started to attack me when I saw the CRS scores skyrocketing because rejection at that point would be a death sentence to my dream to go to Canada. I knew this application was my only chance otherwise it would be very difficult to reapply since I would be far below the cutoff score & I had no chances to get a pnp !!
Meanwhile, I see people moving on & settling & feel that I’m the only one left behind. A lot of desicions are kept on hold because of this immigration thing ,so more & more anexity. Everyday I was asking God not to let me down because I have put a lot of myself in this & I couldn’t afford to lose it even if this was for my own good.
On Sept.19th , I got 2 updates , one of them was a medical extension. I contacted Mr Ralph’s office & learnt from them that all assessments were complete & passed & now I have to wait for my request to add my baby to be reviewed by an officer , starting to cheer up & getting excited again.
Looooong wait till I found here by chance the email Id for Sydney office. A hopeless email on Nov.3rd asking them about the status of the addition request. Honestly, I expected that I might get a demon failure email or even if they bother to reply they would give a generic reply
Nov.4th , application updated , the child is added. Announced here & 2 of my folks from Sydney office whose applications were awaiting finalization wrote to them & came back telling that they got PPR , so I knew now that writing to them was like a nudge that made them reopen the files
Nov.5th & 6th I see a PPR rain, on the verge of getting excited but trying to keep calm. I wrote to them again asking if I should expect a RFV e-mail after the child has been added. Received a dull response that application is still in process & awaiting review. People are celebrating their PPRs & I don’t know whether I should hang in for little more or just hang myself
Nov.8th ,PPR , even my mobile that peeps with every email didn’t peep this time so it was a surprise then lots of hugs, some tears shed , a sigh of relief & now longing for the new start.
I didn’t write this long post for the purpose of dwelling but just to show everyone waiting that things could be very bad & you would feel you hit the rock bottom but all of this can be over turned & for sure it will end !!
My prayers & best wishes are for those who are waiting , I know that no words can put you at ease so I’m praying u get ur PPRs ASAP so that u can move on. I’ll remain active here & check on u all.
1- For a control freak like me, I learnt that I can never always have the upper hand in my affairs , it was God who directed me to apply on the right time & God gave it to me at last on his right time
2- If anyone is stuck at VO Sydney , go attack them on this email id IRCC.CIO-BRCD.IRCC@cic.gc.ca, it worked for us who tried , hopefully it will work for you.
3- Nov.8th/ 2019 is a day to remember
4- The word “submitted” sucks
Thanks a lot to u all & to everyone who interacted with my posts , gave some hope , some condolences or any piece of useful information
