@krunal2904

Hi Krunal,

Me and my husband applied together for visa with upfront medicals on 10th June,2013 ( Paper based VFS Delhi & after two days it has moved to Bangalore vfs)

Me (study Visa) & my Husband (Spouse open work permit)

question:

1) We linked the application successfully by Info which u have provided on this forum.but when I login into my account my application status shows "open" here is the question.whether both applications (me (study permit) & my husband (spouse open work permit)) are "open" (or) only my application (study permit) is "open".

2) Is there any way to track my husband visa (open work permit as we submitted paper based application together as a single file)

please advise

Hi Saibaba92,

If you have used above steps to link your Open Work Permit, I think you have to also link your study permit application as well. I am not sure about it but try category as study permit. I hope you will get something.

Thanks,
Krunl

Hi Victor Paul,

No. It's says mode of application is Online but it's not. It's still paper application but the thing is if you link your application to CIC online, CIC will no longer send you any paper or notice copy at your home address. you will get all updates by email in your CIC account.

Hope this help :).

Thanks,
Krunal

Hi Krunal2904,

The instructions are very helpful and easy to follow. Thank you very much for posting them.

I was trying to link my online application to MyCIC account. However, since I have used an Immigration Lawyer as a representative, it is saying that I need to upload the cancellation of use of representative in order to link my application to MyCIC account.

Do you know whether the update will be effective immediately after uploading the form or if it will take a few days?

Thanks Krunal for the info about linking the paper based application. I just linked my wife's paper based application but not clear enough information provided there. The application status shows 'Open' which is fine and Review of the documents show empty that's where I am really confused. Other filelds shows Not needed at this time which are fine. By any chance do you know anything about it when the Review of the Documents submitted shows empty.
Thanks :)

Hi there! Did you applied from Canada? How much time passed from time you sent application by mail until you linked your application online?
