Hi everyone is it a requirement to show husband name in passport and marital status as married for cnic incorporating husband's name instead of father's name for Pakistani citizens?
From what I know Nadra Marriage Certificate is the only proof of marriage required by CIC.
If both of us have valid cnic and passport at the time of making EE profile, should we just let it be? Our ielts and eca have been done against existing cnic and passport.

For reference, our nikkah is beginning of May and husband's cnic is expiring end of May 2019. Should he renew his cnic now (as we would need a valid cnic for nikkah) and not update the marital status for cnic as his cnic would be valid?

Can someone help me with my query regarding change of name.

Originally posted here https://www.canadavisa.com/canada-immigration-discussion-board/threads/confusion-regarding-name-change.615622/

"The name on my id/passport was different from the one on my educational documents so I got it changed a few years ago. I have travel history on my old passport with my old name. I am confused regarding what exactly I have to show to CIC to prove that my name was changed?

Secondly, since my birth certificate and stamp paper submitted for name change are in Urdu, I will need to get a translation of it if I have to attach those. Does anyone (especially those from Lahore, Pakistan) have experience in this regard? What do I need to upload, the official guidelines are quite vague with regards to translations.

Help in this regard would be appreciated."

Have anyone gone through WES Upgrade by adding new credential recently? I have my 4 yrs bachelors ECA from wes which i did in 2017. Now I want to upgrade report and want to add PGD to it. The documents required showing Inter Certificate and Transcripts and PGD Certificate and Transcript. Do we need to send Inter certificate and marksheet again sealed by board OR just PGD documents sealed by HEC would be enough? Can someone guide if they have gone through upgrade process.

Thank you for sharing detailed update. All the best to you for your future in Canada.

I have a question. Why it took approx. 1.5 years ( from Jan 2017 to July 2018) to move your case towards PPR. Was there any complications involved?

Hi Everyone,

I wanted to know that is it true that most of the applications from Pakistan are processed in more than 6 months as I have heard that now almost all the applications from Pakistan take at least 8 to 12 months till the final decision comes? Anyone here who got the final decision after 6 months?

Please please reply.
Thanks.
