Great... let's keep in touch and update any new information. I know it's a long way to go but hopefully new government policy will bring some surprises.

I checked the web site for processing time in January. It was showing the last update was January 15, 2014 and the processing time was 43 months.
Exactly 5 month later, Last update was on June 18, time is 48 months.
What I am trying to say, maybe this time is not really applicable for old applications? 48 months it's maybe for all new applications that were accepted in January... and for us it's still 43???? It's better than 48 Embarrassed In my country the process takes another 61 months.Wacko 48+61=109 it's 9 years and 1 month. Unacceptable! on a another hand one third of this time has already passed for me Wink

1. No it is applicable to everyone, the new Par/GPar applications went to the bottom of the pile.
2. What will help is that there will be a 2 year gap in applications as there were none submitted during the moratorium. So when the applications hit those from Dec/12 at Mississauga. Which at the present rate will take 2.5 years. Then there will be a 2 year gap, and the Jan/14 will start processing. T
1. The overseas processing should pickup with a cap of 5K per year a drop from 30K to 50K in the prior years.

Sorry, I am not following... Embarrassed what applications from Dec/12? Ottawa stopped accepting sponsorship applications for parents and grandparents since November 2011.

Some good news! Lost of people I know from a different forum got a letter from CIC last week to send additional documents in 90 days. All of them applied after November 2010. One lady applied in May 2011. <img src="smileys/smiley1.gif" align="middle" />
Did anyone from this forum who applied in 2011 get this letter? <img src="smileys/smiley1.gif" align="middle" /> <img src="smileys/smiley1.gif" align="middle" /> <img src="smileys/smiley1.gif" align="middle" />

By the way:
Exactly 1 month later, Last update was on July 30, waiting time has increased by 1 month and it is now 49 months. I think it is obvious how these months count until they deal with backlog

It will pickup speed as the moratorium on P/GPs creates a gap where no P/GP applications were accepted from the 4/11/11 to reopening. so there is 2 year space.

Salam,

I have applied for my parents in Jan 2011. Now i have got the letter from embassy asking the related forms again.

Just a quick question if any one have an idea. In Pakistan usually families are living combine. Do we consider siblings who are over 18 years of age as dependent of my father or not.

I only add my mother as dependent in my father's application. However my two unmarried brothers and one sister over 18 years of age are living together.

Answer will be appreciated.

Thanks,
Ali

1. It looks like you missed the boat as you could have included all your parents children under 22 who were unmarried. Or if over 22 had been attending school since before 22.
2. As you didn't include them, and the age of dependency dropped to under 19 on August 1st, they can't be included.

Does anybody who applied after April 30, 2011 get the 90 days document request letter?
 
I called CIC today and asked when should I expect this letter. I applied in June 2011. It's 44 months for my application now (web site shows 45 months it takes to process an application after they received a COMPLETE package). They told me if I want to follow up to call back in 3 months because they are working on applications received before April 30. At that time CIC will have a better idea when they start sending the request letter for applications received after April 30,2011.  In 3 months it will be 47 months for me.

Hi all,

Just curious...

What documents are requested in that "doc request letter with 90 days deadline"? if somebody can provide some information on it.

Does CIC routinely ask again for option C, notice of assessments etc. from year 2011 to 2014 to check that sponsor is still meeting LICO?

Applied May 2011
Received June 2011

Thanks
Corrie

Hi everyone,

First of all, congratulations to TEI and reallynewbie that received the email from CIC. One Step closer! Do you mind if I ask what forms CIC requested via email? Do you have to provide proof of income again? The reason I'm asking is because I was thinking of taking some time off from work and travel but was afraid CIC may ask me to provide evidence of source of income soon. As my application date was two months away from yours, I guess I will receive some sort of email communication soon. CIC received my application on Aug 4 2011 and the acknowledgement letter was sent Feb 12 2013. 

Thank you so much for sharing your experience here! Any kind of information would definitely help!

Cheers,
Wen

Hi Wen,

In this checklist, they only ask for option c printouts for year you applied the application and a year before as well i.e. For example, if the original sponsorship application was submitted in 2011, the sponsor and co-signer both must submit the Option C Printout for 2010 and 2011.

Hi,
I also received the same letter as TEI. Can someone please advise which forms is CIC requesting? I thought the application was complete.
Any help/info will be appreciated.
Thanks

Even though  applications were complete, they are asking for extra forms, which were used by LVO in past. It makes process little faster as Sponsored person doesn't have to submit those to LVO anymore (which they have to, in past). About list of the forms, in the email, they gave a link "You may obtain the forms listed in the attached checklist on our Web site at:  http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/information/applications/3998-temp.asp" rel="nofollow - ." .

Use the forms from that list and attach additional docs, which are mentioned in checklist.
