HI zTariq,

I got an another email this morning and they asked 2 photographs that meet their specification. Interestingly the letter which i got from LVO stated that "Your photographs does not meet our criteria...." In reality I never send any photographs at first place.

Hi rizwanahmed & ic162K,

That indeed is interesting to know, I never received any email or any message saying anything.... last correspondence I had with CIC was SA email on July 7th.
After a week or 10 days ECAS status went to "In Process" at that time I thought we should be receiving medicals / PCC request in a month or so. In late August it changed back to Application Received.
In August I linked my application to MyCIC and below is what I see

Application/profile status Open
Review of eligibility Review in Progress
Review of medical results Not needed at this time
Review of submitted documents
Scheduling an interview Not needed at this time
A background check is needed Not Started
Final decision Not Started

Also, under MyCIC messages it says "No Messages".

Looking at the progress of other visa offices seems like London Visa office is the slowest.
Also not many people posting their experiences from London Visa office as well.

Again not too sure how many pictures are required and which address to DHL them. I am sure we never submitted any passport photographs along with the application.

Any suggestions?

Also , I tried many times to link my application to MYCIC, but not get success.
You're right zTariq, LVO is the slowest visa office and their processing procedure is different than what we heard in this forum.

Thanks

Hi rizwanahmed,

Actually thats a good thing, seems like they have touched your file and its in process now :)
This brings couple of more questions in my mind for you, if you mind answering below:

1- What does your ECAS say? does it say in-process or application received? ( Mine says Decision made and Application Received )
2- Which email are they sending you these letters? Your email or your parents? ( In my case I provided them with 2 email addresses; mine and my parents')
Their initial correspondence has all been through my email address yet.
Though I am checking both the emails and nothing from CIC yet.

Thanks again for answering my questions, really appreciate it !

Hi zTariq:
In ECAS , if i used my credentials it says the same "Decision Made" and "Application Received" . if i used my father credentials in ECAS then it says only "Application Received". But not any "in-Process" status in my case.
They send all correspondence (so far) on my email address.

Thanks

The next thing you may see is that background check turns into In-Progress and while it stays In-Progress, you will get your PPR. :)
Thanks Rossie!! :D

We were worried about my father's medical but it's really good to know that we are now good.

Good luck to those who are still waiting and stay positive! :)

Hello folks,

Seems from the responses on the forum typically CIC gives 30 days to obtain PCC.

Was wondering if anyone asked CIC for more time (time extension) to obtain their PCC. If so, can someone share their experience or thoughts on this.

Thank you!

I am in same situation like you. Application status went to "In Process" on 1st Sept and then after 10 days went back to "Application received". Have not heard anything from CIC. No idea what's happening?

Review of medical results Not needed at this time
Review of submitted documents
Scheduling an interview Not needed at this time
A background check is needed Not Started

You don't have to worry about it. Just use the correct DOB and anything like it so that it matches with other valid ID (i.e. passports, birth cert, national id, marriage cert. etc.).
Thanks Rossei for sharing your thoughts.

If any one else has gone through this situation I would appreciate to hear from them there experience.

I have another question here, as We are thinking of applying for sponsoring my wife's parents and my wife is not working for past 3 years as we had kid and she is taking care of him. But We would qualify with my income.
Now here, I wanted to ask that would my wife be the main applicant and I will be the Co-signer and we would have to submit Option-C for both my wife and myself or Only I can sponsor my in-laws.?

Thanks in advance

I received three emails saying that we have new messages in my CIC account.

However, trying to login to my cic, I keep on getting "Internal Server Error" after the first page. Anybody could log in to my cic this morning?

I called CIC and they were saying the website is up working fine.

Please let me know.
