Hi everyone,

Just wondering if there are any other December applicants on this forum? Thought it would be nice to have a thread to share any progress/updates :)

Hi

Yes, we'll be applying end of Dec or early Jan.

We did IELTS ten days ago, should get results on Friday. We also received confirmation from WES that they've received our qualifications.

We're holding thumbs that everything will go well, and that we can go ahead with creating our profile and applying.

Good luck for the IELTS results! Holding thumbs that you get results you are hoping for :)

Hi everyone, 

We just got our PPR email last night - 24 days processing in total! I hope that this trend of very fast processing continues in the future :)

Hopefully they will - our WPs were processed in about 5 (this was in 2016 though!). Good luck!

Guys does the institution have to send the docs to WES directly or can I collect and send them myself?

You can collect and send them as long as they are in a sealed and stamped envelope

Hi.  We got our PPR on 22Feb & just been informed that we can pick up our passports.

A few people I know that submitted in Jan haven't heard anything yet.  I don't really understand why certain cases move faster than others.

Hi all

We submitted on 26 December 2017. Received the 'How to find a job in Canada' update to our account in February 2018.

Spent what felt like years checking our e-mail a million times a day.

Finally received our PPR e-mail this morning :D

Thanks @ateotia. Our visa office was Pretoria and we received the mail from PRETIMMIGRATION@international.gc.ca. We had e-mailed the same address about two months ago to find out whether our file had reached the office at which point they indicated that it was in the queue.
