Congratulations, how did you get visit visa for such long periods?
Lia77,
I applied online for USA visa and paid online. You can chose your own interview date. If the immigration officer satisfy they will give you visa. I got 10 years visa but it depends on immigration officer you will get 6 months or 5 years or 10 years. Lucky I got 10 years visa.

Regards
Farhana

You should have collected your recent GCMS notes which would indicate the latest status. Most probably BGC is taking longer time. The interviewer indicated that your interview was successful. You should get remedical request soon.

Good luck!

Does anyone know what this message exactly means?

I had my interview February 5th and the officer was satisfied with our marriage. The VO said we will start your security and in the mean time you can do your medical. So last week I sent an email that I still did not receive the medical request. I got the answer below.

Your application is undergoing an assessment of the information you provided. We cannot provide a time frame as to when the assessment will be completed. However, we will contact you as soon as we have further information.
Do you mind if I ask why you guys got interviewed? I don't normally see people from the Netherlands get called for a relationship interview, and you've been waiting a ridiculously long time! I'm glad you passed though!

Interview is scheduled when VO has confusions, questions or concerns over any issues relating to the application. They need to make sure that marriage of convenience is not taking place in order to obtain Canadian immigration. Applicants from Visa exempted countries are more unlikely to get scheduled for interview.

As far as I remember I filled in those forms again and brought those updated forms as advised to the interview.

you welcome
Hi Farhana, and All, could you please help.
CIC sent the documents (might be evidences) by mail to my husband’s address. Unfortunately he was travelling during that time, he come to visit me for 1 month. The post office hold the package for 2 weeks and returned it back to the sender, just 2 days before my husband was back home. What should I do please? Should i send email to them to explain and ask them to resend the package? Will it delayed the interview schedule?

Thank you very much
