I just began the process with Campbell and Cohen last week (April 2020). We have not submitted our official application yet, but have sent papers and information to our case handler for assessment of our readiness/suitability.


Under occupation 5221 Photographer
They told us the whole process from application to end is likely going to take about 21 months.

I submitted for self employed (author) on Feb 2020, and completed biometrics on March 13 2020. Just waiting now. Timeline end is estimated to be Nov 2021. Question, I also submitted my medical which expires Oct 2020...should I send an webform inquiry letting them know to note this so I hopefully won't have to repeat medical due to costs?

Not sure if this is accurate or not, so bear with me, but my lawyer said your experience doesn't necessarily have to be deemed "world-class", you just have to show experience and background in self-employment and be willing to be self-employed once you land. There's an "OR" in most descriptions that includes world-class athletes and artists, but per my lawyer my 12 years of experience owning a creative business is applicable, even if I'm not "world famous".

Wow great, so fast! Usually AOR takes between 2 and 3 months. Did you receive e-mail to link your application online? My application was delivered on 25th of March and still No AOR.

There's no answer to that question. How long is a piece of string? It will just take as long as it takes so keep yourself busy and be patient. :)
