    Pretoria VO Application Processing

    Hi All Some background on my application: FSWO - single applicant AOR: 29 Jan MEP: 19 Mar BIL: 21 Mar GCMS ordered 25 April My file was handed to Pretoria VO on 28 March and since then I am unable to obtain any updates on progress. Before this I was able to call CIC whilst my file was in Sydney, NS. With there being an extremely limited amount of info on Pretoria VO I was hoping people with applications at Pretoria VO or those who have received PPR from Pretoria VO could share their experiences and shed some light. TIA

    Tuks transcripts via MIE timeline

    I submitted a request for my University of Pretoria academic transcripts (to be sent to WES) to Management Integrity Solutions (MIE) on 10 December 2018. It took 6 emails, a few faxes and a couple of rants before they confirmed receipt of my request and the funds. On average, how long after MIE confirms payment do the transcripts arrive at WES? I am trying to enrol in a Masters Degree through distance learning in New Orleans from Canada, and I never thought I'd be dealing with MIE or WES 22 years after immigrating....
  3. Hi All Has anyone decided to pay the Canadian High Commission in Pretoria a visit recently to get a status update on their application? I was wondering if this is still possible and exactly what time they open and how it all works? I understand that the consulate accepts walk ins on the first Tuesday of every month. It also seems that from their website that open at 9am to the general public. Any tips, tricks or advice on this would be very useful.

    Applying at Pretoria VFS

    Good day all, Just got to Pretoria from Nelspruit. We will be going for our medicals tomorrow, 14 July with Dr. Erwin Lingenfelder in Pretoria and after that off to the VFS office to hand in our application. I hope some of you guys that have applied at the VFS office lately can answer or help on a couple of my questions. I'm a bit disappointed in the service I got on the VFS online chat. I had a couple of questions that I have asked to make sure that we have all forms and supporting docs in place so we can hand in the application as soon as we are finish with the medicals. Just for interest sake, I'm the main applicant applying for a WP for me, Open WP for Sanelle and Open Study Permits for our 7 and 5 year old kids. Under the WP application package you have two check lists, the standard IMM5488, this is the document checklist for a WP from CIC then you now also have the IMM5925 Pretoria Visa Office Instuction guide. Witch one do you use or do you use both? As one of the VFS personnel said both and the other say the Pretoria one. For interest sake the IMM5488 ask for the family info form IMM5645 and the IMM5925 ask for the family info form IMM5406, so I rather filled in both. Not sure witch one they actually want. The VFS also said that both me and my wife should fill in or submit the IMM5925 Pretoria form, each must have copies of all persons passports, both must have proof of payment, proof of funds and unabridged Marraige. Now this I do not understand as this is one application package under me as the main applicant. Then under the kids study permit application you also have two check forms the IMM5483 from CIC and then IMM5845 Pretoria visa office check list. As far as I understand this form you only need to fill it in if the student is older as 18 or under 18 and will be studying in Canada on his or her own. Am I correct? Do we have to fill in the IMM5845 Pretoria form for our kids or not? The Castodian form, again one of the VFS personnel said we do not need to fill it in as the kids will be living with us. The other one said what ever detail you can fill in, fill it in. Now this I did not fill in as our kids will be living with us? Did any of you have to fill this in in the same situation as this? Do we need to add any of the kids school reports? Hope some of you can shed some light on this before we have to go to the VFS office tomorrow. I will also give full feed back on here as soon as we have finished with the medicals and the VFS office tomorrow. My biggest question is what is the function of the VAC or VFS offices if they state that they can not tell you what forms to fill and also not give advise on how. Maybe I have this wrong, but as far as I have it CIC decided to make use of VAC and or VFS offices to assist applicants, yes in some cases thy do assist but without consistency between answers. My biggest concern is getting there tomorrow, hand in the application, pay close to R400 per person that they "assist" with the application and the application package is not correct and gets rejected or cause delays at the Canadian Visa Office.

    Hatfield processing time

    Hi guys I am one of those forum stalkers, always reading and never posting! So I decided to start a topic to discuss Hatfield processing times. We applied towards the end of 2014 and received our PER in December. We also received AOR on 7 January '15, but there has been zero movement since then. It's got me a bit worried, because I am way behind the spreadsheet timeline for receiving medical requests... I did lodge a query but they have not replied yet. I was wondering if anyone else is experiencing the same out of Hatfield, or is it just me?? It could just be that a whole lot of applications were sent to Pretoria at the beginning of this year and the spreadsheet does not accurately reflect the timelines when the visa office is actually "under pressure"? Another reason for my concern is that I had a bit of an issue with a visa overstay some years back... I did indicate it on my forms and wrote a nice letter to CIC, could this be the reason for the hold up in our medical requests?? From my extensive research (Google!!!) it does not seem to be a problem, but you never know... Groete Wynand
