Hi guys!

 

We just submitted our application for PR today and I'm keen to see how others timelines progress from here.

 

Let's hope all goes smoothly.

I'm aiming to get my application submitted within the next few days. I'm just waiting for my Police Clearance (just need to fetch it... that's a Monday morning job) and letters from the bank.

I'm stressing about my Proof of Funds though... I have 10k in savings, about R150k in a Provident Fund, R50k or so in unit trusts but have a bond with about R450k outstanding. 

I've signed a mandate to sell the house, and I can sell my car when things have been sorted. I just worry that what I have isn't enough.

I should maybe add: I'm leaving SA because I've found myself a wonderful Canadian lady who I'm marrying next year. Hopefully including that in the application will help things (unlikely though).

So "next few days" turned out to be almost a month... but I've just submitted my application and received AoR already. Now the wait begins...

Our application is on hold until our baby is born so our timeline will be out of sync with the rest....for now it's stuck on "Reviewing the medical exams"

I don’t know what’s going on with my application. The last update I had was on 28 March - they sent a letter on how to go about finding jobs in Canada. 

From what I’ve read you can’t find out whichLVO is processing your application anymore. Obviously Pretoria makes the most sense for me.

Hi there all! Thanks for starting this group. Timeline:

AOR: 22 Feb 2018

Medicals passed: 3 March 2018

IP2: 3 March 2018

 

Heard nothing from them since then,  emailed  them to find out at which visa office the application currently is at, but after 3 days still nothing. Hoping it has made it to Pretoria VO already to be processed.

So 2 months  have passed already, which I know is short bit holding thumbs it won't take much longer than 3 months..

Good luck with the wait all!

It definitely seems though processing has slowed down considerably. But it makes sense, since they have increase the number of invites by quite a lot.

hey Kit kat, it isnt necessary for the applicant to be based in canada for application to be processed in CAN, it is based on cic workload that they reassign applications to a LVO (local visa office), so some of our fellow country folks applying can get processed in ottawa and their PPR comes earlier, Pretoria has been slow, so far jan applications AOR have not yet recevied their PPRs from Pretoria, so its a waiting game for now if your application has moved to pretoria. How do you know where your application is? call CIC and ask them, there is a toll free number that can be called

Thanks @ateotia, I emailed the Pretoria office last week. They forwarded my email to the central intake office who then responded to me saying that my application was being reviewed by their office. So I’m assuming it’s being processed in Ottawa as my profile recently changed to say that they were processing my background check. So hoping for some news soon. 

Any movement with your application?
