Hi all:

Please update my timeline in google spreasheet (line520):
- July 7th: Police clearance is requested again
- July17th: Police clearance is done
- July 26th: medical is requested
- July 26th: pre-arrival letter is sent
- August 4ht: Email asking to pay the Right to Permanent Residence Fee (RPRF) (replied saying they were already paid and provided receipts; a bit surprising that they don't have a mechanism to track payment)
Hi, is your visa office is London uk or London Ontario? All fees paid are mentioned in GcKey account, i wonder why he asked you

Hello,
Is anyone else dealing with the Canadian Embassy in Mexico? We applied for my in laws since 2019 June. Did Biometrics Nov 2021 and police clearance Dec 2021---No other communication after that.
I spoke to our MP twice and no other response but stating its in process. I have sent various webforms and have tried so many times to call both here in Canada and in Mexico. No answer. The MP did mention that the file was transferred to MONTREAL; this confused me and she did not elaborate on this. I have also sent out an ATIP form.
Can someone shed some light? or give some other advice.........
Parents are in Havana, Cuba and we were thinking of applying for a Visitor Visa or a SuperVisa but are afraid it might create another delay.
Please HELP.
Thanks,
When your MP says transfer to Montreal believe her, same thing happened to my parents file. They ignored all requests for updates by all means, email, webform, gcms notes but they communicated on their own. They transfer files on workload basis. I hope soon you will get email from Montreal. Super visa will not harm your case rather may help. In my case i cannot say for sure whether supervisa has helped or turn in queue is reason for the file movement. But its my gut feeling that soon your file will get wheels because cases of pgp-19 are beyond maximum time boundry therefore they have shifted to Montreal. Good luck

In August 2021, i was informed that the file will be transferred to London, UK.
However, the recent correspondence (request of pcc, medical, and right of PR fee) all came from London, Ontario office. I hope it is a good sign . Honestly, i thought it was all from London, UK but your question made me verify it; thanks for asking!

How long does it take to receive PR portal link after address confirmation? We got passport request two days ago and submitted web form that parents are in Canada. Visa office is NDVO.
I got the passport request July 25th, and August 8th I got instructions to confirm location/email so they can set up my mom's portal account. Still waiting for that next step :)

Hi all,
Thanks for all the support after 3 years. My mum is now a permanent resident.

Question - Can she apply for Old Age Sercurity benefits even thou she just became a PR. She is 65.

Thanks.

If you are living in Canada, you must:

  • be 65 years old or older
  • be a Canadian citizen or a legal resident at the time we approve your OAS pension application
  • have resided in Canada for at least 10 years since the age of 18

I asked you because your case is progressing similar to mine. There is one person on this forum of vo London on who got swift processing till pp request and pp stamping. Fingers crossed. Hope ours also come to happy end soon.

and in addition to what you mentioned I think she cannot apply foe OAS pension plan at all because the sponsor should provide all his expenses for 20 years. but I'm not sure about that.

She can apply OAS after residency is fulfilled but cannot apply social assistance until 20 years of sponsorship.

I received additional document(CV) request on 19 Jul 2022 followed by medial request on 21 Jul 2022. Medical test was completed on 25 Jul 2022. GCKey was updated as Medial passed on 1 Aug 2022. CV was submitted on 9 Aug 2022. I see today that ECAS status for PR application changed to Decision Made. LVO is New-Delhi.

Hoping to get PPR soon.
