Please verify your email address with CIC , also ask what is pending ? Why taking long time .

eas

Thank you,

The status is still IN PROGRESS. Very strange. I called CIC and enquired - why is this delay. However the Agent said, usually it would take about 12 months and recommended to me approach CIC via Web form. However, she warned me to contact exactly after 1 year (ie. after Aug 30) otherwise my request will be ignored. Below is the gist of the message:
  • Fill out the IRCC Web form available on our website,
  • Choose the applicable option located in the drop down menu under the heading Enquiry, and
  • Include:
    • the information/document(s) in question, and
    • a brief description of the situation in the Your enquiry box.

Hey guys, i read in several posts that they go through and reconcile passport stamps in the test interview. What about those who travel using Nexus /global entry. I have very few canada /US stamps on the passport, but have approx 40 short trips during the eligibility period. As per my calculations, I am eligible with a very comfortable margin (waited for more than 5 years)- would they be nitpicking small errors for number of days if overall eligibility not affected?

Sometimes the interview officer request I94 report so if u think u have that many trips not showing up on ur passport get that report before hand and when requested hand it to interviewer to save time

Thanks again Maqsood! That was excellent advice. The I94 records have all nexus trips for last 5 years. The only issue its five years prior to now, so I am missing a few trips from first of the five year before i applied (which is a part of the eligibility period). I hope 4 years history is sufficient
