Hi,

whats the policy if additional medical tests are required from India after your meds are done ... say if you are traveling and you have to do the additional tests elsewhere in a different country with a DMP? ..

thanx

Timelines of following members have been removed because they have not updated their timelines for a long time. This makes other think that those cases

Hello Sono876

Well I had gone to visit my husband during his interview and the IO called me in just for few minutes and asked me when I arrived etc, saw my passport and then told me to sit in the waiting area.

He then asked my husband about how we met and who introduced us, why did he marry someone who is 10yrs older and has a child. He also asked if his family members have met me and one of my sister in law also lives in Canada who is also my friend, so he asked him about his sister, also we are both Muslims but different culture so he asked why he married someone outside his culture. Also IO asked about where I work in Canada, what kind of work I do and who are my co-workers.

And finally he asked my husband what if your case is rejected what will u do.....to that my husband replied he will try again and keep trying till he gets his visa and we are together.

His interview was about one and a half hour long. My husband had our wedding album with all the wedding pics and pics from my trip with my daughter b4 the marriage. Also all the online chats, phone bills, cards, etc. The officer saw the photo album and the other docs. In the end he said there will be letter sent out in 5 wks about the decision but its been over 9 months since the interview but nothing yet. We have emailed few times but nothing. MP also checked and said its in process so u have to wait. So we are still waiting.

Hope this helps....Good luck to u
