jetice, nice to see you made it to the forum again Smile and indeed I think you're going to make it to Canada too!
 
I think it's good that they contacted your mother to redo the medical because it expired which means they're getting to the end of the line!!!!
 
It may be another month before she hears anything back from Kingston, but they ARE working on it Clap.
 
Great that they have the original documents now too!

TRV= Temporary Resident Visa or Visitors Visa

you apply as any other person would by filling out the forms and paying yr fees. this visa doesnt allow you to live in canada, there is a time limit as to how long you can stay in the country legally.

Hi missingmybaby,
 
Given that you have an application for a PRV, you're going to need to make a substantial effort to prove that he will come back to Jamaica when the TRV, Temporary Resident Visa expires. If he has a job, a letter from his employer confirming that he has *** weeks vacation & a job he is expected to return to. Ties to the community (taking care of mother/father etc). Return airplane ticket, travel insurance while in Canada with expiry date.
 
Explain that you understand the process is lenghty, how long  you haven't seen each other, any committments in Canada that prevent you from getting to Jamaica to see him, financial burden if you do leave your job for an extended time, no more vacation pay, Child responsiblities, job, family duties etc.
 
You need to make it clear that the best option for both of you is for him to come here to visit. If you can convince them of that, and that indeed he will return before the TRV expires. You should be okay. I also advise that you apply for it ASAP, as rumor has it they pound out TRV's in record numbers in December. Not sure if there is any truth to that, but I think if it can work in your favor. Sooner is better. Especially if you want him here for Christmas..... maybe play religion in your favour as well.
 

How to apply for your Temporary Resident Visa

  1. Obtain a Temporary Resident Visa application package.
  2. Read the guide.
  3. Complete the application form and attach the necessary documents.
  4. Pay the fee and get the necessary receipt.
  5. Mail the application form and necessary documents.

1. Obtain a Temporary Resident Visa application package.

The package includes the application guide and all the forms you need to fill out. Download and print the application package.

2. Read the guide.

Read the guide carefully before you complete the application form. The fee for processing your form is not refundable, so make sure you are eligible to get a Temporary Resident Visa before you apply.

3. Complete the application form and attach the necessary documents.

The application form contains instructions. Read the instructions and be sure to provide the required documents. If you do not provide all the requested information or documents, your application may be delayed.

You can use the same application form for your spouse or common-law partner, and for dependent children under 18 if they will be travelling with you.

All required documents must be included with your application:

  • You must have a valid travel document (such as a passport) for each family member on the application.
  • Two recent passport photos of each family member are required. Make sure these photos meet the requirements. For more information on specifications for photographs, see the Related Links section at the bottom of this page.
  • Enclose the application fee. Your fee will not be refunded, even if your application is not accepted.
  • You must provide proof that you have enough money for your visit to Canada. The amount of money may vary, depending on the circumstances for your visit, how long you will stay and whether you will stay in a hotel, or with friends or relatives. You can get more information from the Canadian visa office in your country or region.
  • You may need to include other documents. These documents could be identification cards, proof of employment, a letter of invitation from relatives or friends in Canada, or a proposed itinerary. Check the website of the visa office responsible for the country or region where you live for more information.

4. Pay the fee and get the necessary receipt.

The fee per person is $75 for a single entry visa, $150 for a multiple entry visa or $400 for a family (multiple or single entry).

Check the website of the visa office responsible for the country or region where you live for more information on fees, including how to pay them.

No, but I wish they would disclose that type of info. Smile
This is the number that were issued for the correlating year.

Yeah, it would be interesting to see how many in fact they do process. Maybe we can do a study ourselves (if only we know the bases of their decisions). Sigh.

there are some general guidelines that must be followed for the application.

after that however, the decision rests with the immigration officer that has yr file and the quotas that have to be met.

i've been thru some circumstances with both the us and canadian immgration offices that lead me to believe that at times, it really is just the luck of the draw.
