Hi,

I had a quick question. I traveled to Canada a few years ago from the US on a visitor visa for a holiday with my family to hang out with a few extended family members and friends.

We arrived by car on the night of the 20th of August and went back on the evening of the 26th.

Would the 6 days (August 21 to August 26) count as half days towards the 1,095 day physical presence requirement?

Does anyone know if application was returned because of the signature and date. How long will it take after application is resubmitted?
I am sorry to tell you this but submitting your reply will take the same length of time to get an AOR as someone submitting for the first time at that period.

i believe that visitor visa counts as half day as long as its in your eligibility period. My husband stayed here in canada for more than 6 months as tourist but was counted, too.

You are not alone. My application was delivered on Oct 3rd and I haven’t received my AOR yet. I guess they are randomly picking applications or ours got mixed up. :(

Some guy in the November thread already got their AOR too, so that’s even flukier. I left Canada several times during my eligibility, so travel wasn’t a factor, just random luck. You early October people should get it in the next two weeks.

If application was returned because it was incomplete ( forgot a signature) and they specifically asked me to resubmit a new application and a new physical presence calculator sheet - do I change the date on the calculator sheet (the date of application )?

I would recommend calling CIC on this matter. The officers will give you the best advice and they are very helpful.
