Hello all,
I have applied for spouse dependant open work permit. I already have dependant visa. I applied from India and its been approx 70-75 days and I have not received any update. I want to know is there is any way to follow up or just wait .
Also what is the approach used from embassy.Do they share update only when they start looking into the application.
Appreciate suggestions.
Typical wait time is 100+ days.

DO not apply for open work permit from India. Apply for visitor visa and then change status after coming to Canada.

applied on August 4 still waiting for update. I do not know why they are taking too much time. I am so worried. They just started reviewing eligibilty one week ago.
SOWP are the lowest priority. Priority goes to the students or workers who are already employed and have a start date. The posted processing time is approx. 15 weeks and I believe that has decreased from 17 weeks.
