Letter to Vienna sparked Interview.
Our eCas never did change from Application received to In Progress and Decision made.
Sent a what's up letter after 18 months.
An interview has been scheduled for you at the Canadian Embassy in Vienna on 23 April 2015 at 14:00 o' clock
CONGRATS and GOOD LUCK
Please bring to the interview the documents, if any, listed at the end of this letter.
If on your application you indicated that you have less than high proficiency in English or French, members of our local staff can provide interpretation in Albanian, Bosnian, Croatian, Czech, German, Hungarian, Macedonian, Serbian, Slovak and Slovenian languages.
If you are not proficient in French or English and do not speak one of the languages listed above, you will need to provide, at your expense, a certified interpreter who can interpret into English or French. The use of legal representatives, consultants, their employees or relatives is not acceptable as this may be a conflict of interest. As the visa officer must be satisfied that the interpreter is unbiased and qualified, interpreters are expected to provide evidence of their qualifications before the interview.
Please confirm within two weeks, by e-mail, mail or fax, whether or not you are able to attend this interview and whether you need an interpreter and for which language. If we do not receive confirmation from you, your application will be assessed based on the information on file which may result in the refusal of your application.
