PNP Time Line

Recommended Posts

einselec

As you all know we went for our Medicals on 8 May 2008. It has been 9 weeks and counting and we still have not heard anything yet!!!!!! There must be something wrong because the website says that medicals will be returned from Nairobi between 6 and 8 weeks from the time that they were sent to Nairobi!!!!

I have sent Pretoria two e-mails asking them for an update but they have not returned any of my messages. One was sent last week and the other was sent this week. Hope that all is not lost for us!!!!!!!

Einselec the website says that the timeline for PNP cases is 6-8 months. They will not respond to status enquiries if it is within the timeline. I'm sure you'll get your PPR sometime in July. I know it's disheartening when you see other visa posts quick turnaround time but we can still be thankful that we don't have as long a wait as the normal PR guys :lol:

Keep strong, before you know it you'll be here.

I agree...it's coming!

Your previous post, Einselec, reminded me of our own agonizing days before we finally heard. One of the hardest curve balls that came our way, was when Buffalo asked us for our tax assessment. This was after the medicals had already been completed and submitted. We had filed taxes here in Canada as required, but as newbies had not received the assessment yet. I e-mailed Buffalo and told them, and said all we had as 'proof' was a 'practice copy' of the actual tax forms that I had kept as our own record. They were happy with that so I mailed that off to them, lol. Just wanted to know we had actually filed taxes.

Only those who have gone through those agonizing last few minutes of waiting understand how 'stretched' one feels inside! Boy, it hurts, annoys, causes one to despair, feel overwhelmed, lost, lonely/isolated, etc!

Look around dear friend...there are tons of us here who understand just exactly how you feel right now.

I read an inspiring plaque in a restaurant this week:

" Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass.

It's about learning to dance in the rain."

I've heard a vicious rumour that somebody's PNP has JUST been approved... but I'm sure it must be just that... a very nasty, vicious rumour without any proof whatsoever!! :D

Congrats Einstein and Einstein's wife and Little Einstein! :whistling:

Not long now before you feel the whoosh of the turbines lifting you off to a better future. I can't wait to have that feeling myself!

Please shout if we can help in any way to make the last few days here a little bit less hectic. :ilikeit:

Hi Ingrid

Dankie vir die uitnodiging maar ons gaan Kanada binnegaan deur die Oroville grenspos en sal dan deur Penticton opry na Kelowna. Ons sal egter so 4 of 5 weke na ons geland het ons goed wat per boot na Vancouver gestuur word moet gaan afhaal en sal dan dalk daardie koffietjie kom nuttig. PM vir my jou telefoon nommer dan skakel ek jou nadat ons daar aankom en dan kan jy dalk jou adres vir my gee vir die beloofde koffie.

Ek en Naomi het besluit om ons goed self in Vancouver te gaan haal want dan sien ons darem daardie deel van die wêreld ook. Hoop alles loop glad af want die pakkery maak my absoluut mal! Nog net een week oor en ek wonder of ons alles betyds gedoen gaan kry.
