Hello everyone,
I’ve applied for my parent sponsorship in Jan 2016 and received the confirmation letter for sponsorship in March 2017 and my parents file has been sent to ottawa. When I check the file status it is said received in Jan 5,2016.i have not heard anything back from ottawa.is there anyone the same situation with me? Do you have any idea how long does it take to process a file from ottawa? My parents live in Iran.
Thanks

Very excited to share folks that we got the passports request for my parents this morning. Will share once the passports are back with us. Best of luck to everyone waiting, it will come through for all shortly.:)
That gives a hope. I have been following this thread. Now I want to update my parents status so that somebody get some help or hope:
Applied in Jan 2016
June 22, 2016 they asked me for some additional documents
February 10, 2017 my file was sent to NDVO
December 11, 2017 , they asked for Medicals, PCC, Photographs, one out of country form and PR landing fees
January 11, 2017 , they received the medicals
January 29, 2017, they sent the pre-arrival letter but the application status is still "In Process" by NDVO

I am hoping to get Passport request soon after seeing your comment.
Thank you!
Simran

Congratulations. Please can you advise if your parents were asked to redo meds and did you recv the pre arrival letter. If yes, please can you advise dates. I was asked to redo meds on Nov 3. We did it on Nov 6. We also recd the pre arrival letter on Nov 3. Ecas show "DM" for a few weeks now. But we have not recd the PPR yet :(

Got pre arrival email today and my Cic changed to decision made. Visa office is NDVO. Hope to get the passport call soon.

Any idea folks how much should be the time from now onwards to passport call.

N most surprising thing is that I got some correspondence from NDVO on 26th January Republic day in India means a stat holiday, r they working overtime or didn’t had a govt holiday.

Please advise n hope to listen good news soon.
Congrats Garry. Atleast you had the power to shake up the NDVO to get the process completed. LOL - Congrats bro.
