Thanks, rbenoit.

It's been a long wait and my wife has become pessimistic and reluctant to believe any news that I give her.  She will only believe it when she gets her passport back with the visa stamped on it.  I just hope she gets the visa before the peak flying season kicks in and before her medicals expire end of December.

Cheers!

Personal advertisement for accomodations in Davao City, Philippines
 
Many of you alerady know our story and after 2 1/2 grueling years of immigration problems my wife has been here in Canada now since the end of November 2008.

If any of you are planning on visiting in/or around Davao city feel free to contact me as my wife and I bought a 2 bedroom condo there as we were planning on moving.
Fortunately, just before we finalized any moving plans my wife got her visa and so we have been renting out our condo mostly to other couples that were in our situation.

I know this is a little bit of self advertising however staying in a nice furnished condo even for short term is a much nicer experience than staying in hotels.

Facts and figures:

In 2008 they were 247,243 of immigrants in Canada.
23,724 almost 10% of the total number of immigrants came from the Philippines.
The Philippines was the 3rd highest source country last year. 
China and India are the first and second (29,336 and 24,549 respectively).
 
65,567 are under family class accounting for 26.5% of total number of immigrants
44,196  are spousal applications or 67% of family class
 
http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/pdf/research-stats/facts2008.pdf - http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/pdf/research-stats/facts2008.pdf
 
FUN PART:
Using straight line ratio and comparision:
There were probably 4,200 spousal application last year
23,724  total immigrants from Philippines * 26.5% percentage of Family Class = 6,287
6,287 number of family class applicants * 67% spousal sponsorship rate= 4,212
 
However, doue to further googling I came across an article that said:
There were only 2,222 spousal sponsorship from the Philippines last year.
The country has a rejection rate of 9% which probably puts it on the low to moderate level.
Highest rejection rate was from Hong Kong (south China), 48% lowest from Taipei, 3%

I got a call tonight from Manila embassy informing they have sent out my wife's visa package on Nov. 24th but DHL can't find my wife's address (dumbass DHL driver).  They also called my wife and emailed her the DHL tracking# to coordinate pickup of the package.  Pretty good customer service on the part of Canadian Embassy, I'd say.  They just need to improve communicating the status of the whole process instead of just giving us cryptic 1 or 2 liners on eCAS, or applicants will always go crazy.  Me and my wife were starting to panic that up 'till now there's no word from them about the visa package.

Thank you Lord !

and to others still waiting I hope you get your DM's and visa soon...good luck !

SORRY FOR ALL CAPS FORMAT I CANT READ THE PRINT OTHERWISE SO I WOULDNT KNOW WHAT I WROTE.  ANYWAY
CONGRATS TO ALL WHO HAVE RECIEVED THEIR PR
OUR TMELINE
jun 8 ,2009 >> i sent our application docs to CPC-M
july 13,2009 >> CPC-M look and approve our sponsorship application
july 17,2009 >> Received Sponsorship Approval Letter
july 27, 2009 We started processing MARIFE MATANGCAS MILTIMORE's application on July 27, 2009. yeahhhhhhhhh
aug 16 2009 she received aor and was asked for her passport and personal history last two years
aug 19 2009 recieved at embassy.requested materials.
sept 15 2009 approx. recieved letter from embassy asking for school records and voter id and registration
sept 22 2009 approx. embassy recieved requested materials.
nov  30 2009  email mp to ask to look into why our application is taking longer than 4 months in Manila since others sent same time have recieved their permanent resident visa
DEC 2 2009 MY MP'S OFFICE CALLED ME AND TOLD ME MANILA HAS EVERYTHING THEY NEED.  WHICH IS NEWS TO US MARIFE'S ECAS HAS ONLY SAID IN PROCESS FROM START ALSO MANILA SAID HER FILE IS UP FOR REVIEW DECEMBER 18 BUT I STILL COULD EXPECT AN INTERVIEW FOR HER BUT THEY ALSO TOLD MP'S OFFICE THAT HER MEDICAL FILES WERE THERE AND EVERYTHING WE SENT WAS ACCEPTABLE AND THEY NOW KNOW SHE IS WHO SHE SAYS SHE IS.

ANYWAY SHE DIDNT MAKE IT FOR MY BIRTHDAY NOVEBER 23 AS WE HAD HOPED AN NOW WILL NOT BE HERE FOR CHRISTMAS BUT I AM SURE SHE SHOULD BE HERE FOR OUR ANNIVERSARY, FEBRUARY 10.  GOD THIS WAITING IS KILLING US. 
     I SENT MY MP A BUNCH OF TIMELINES AND TOLD THEM THAT SOME ARE DONE IN LESS THAN 12 WEEKS INCLUDING SPONSORSHIP APPROVAL AND WE ARE AT 25 WEEKS NOW.  I WONDEREED WHY.  THEY HAD NO ANSWER I JUST THINK SOME WORKERS ARE MORE COMPASSIONATE THAN OTHERS, SOME WORK HARDER THAN OTHERS AND SOME TAKE MORE TIME OFF THAN OTHERS.  HAHA I THINK OURS IS INT THE LATTER IN ALL 3 CATEGORIES HAHAH.  I TOLD THE WE ALL BELONG TO THIS FORU AND THE ONE THING WE ALL FEEL IN COMMON IS THAT MORE COMUNICATION WOULD BE GREAT AND EMAILING US EVEN BETTER,
      I KNOW OUR FILE STILL SAYS ONLY IN PROCESS FROM THE BEGINNING AND WE HAD MEDICALS DONE IN MAY BEFORE WE APPLIED.  WE WERE WORRIED THEY GOT LOST BUT MP'S OFFICE SAY NO THEY HAVE THEM AND HAVE FOR A LONG TIME.  THE MP'S OFFICE WAS TOLD THAT MANILA HAS A TIMELINE OF 8 MONTHS BUT I SAID AS YOU CAN SEE BY THE TIMELINES I SENT YOU THAT THEY VARY AND WE SENT EVERYTHING THEY ASKED FOR IN CHECKLIST FROM THE BEGINNING.  SO SOME STANDARDIZATION WOULD ALSO BE APPRECIATED.
    SO CONGRATS AGAIN TO ALL HOPE OTHERS ARE ALSO UP FOR REVIEW SOON AND YOU WILL BE REUNITED WITH YOUR LOVED ONE AS SO MANY HAVE ALREADY.  I JUST HOPE MARIFE DOES NOT HAVE TO TRAVEL TO MANILA FOR AN INTERVIEW.
      I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANYONE WITH MOTION SICKNESS LIKE HER.  IT BREAKS MY HEART TO SEE HER THAT SICK.  I SENT HER THAT ONE THAT IS LIKE A NICOTINE PATCH BUT GOES BEHIND THE EAR SO I HOPE IT WORKS FOR WHEN SHE COMES TO CANADA.
      BUT IF SHE HAS TO INTERVIEW I GUESS I WILL FIND OUT EARLY IF IT WORKS.  SHE IS 4 HOURS FRO DAVAO AND 1 1/2 HOUR PLANE FLIGHT TO MANILA SO I HOPE SHE ONLY HAS TO DO THAT ONCE AND NOT TWICE.
     TOO BAD FOR US WE WILL NOT BE TOGETHER AT CHRISTMAS BUT I KNOW MANY OF YOU ARE SPENDING YOUR FIRST CHRISTMAS TOGETHER SO I HOPE YOU LUCKY ONES TELL US ALL ABOUT THAT FIRST ONE TOGETHER. 
TAKE CARE ALL AND GOOD LUCK TO ALL
AGAIN I APOLOGISE FOR ALL CAPS
SINCERELY

Hey Carwin, hang in there bud.  My timeline is only 2 weeks earlier than yours.  Manila started my wife's application July 14 and her visa got issued and sent out November 24th (It's just DHL fumbled their first attempt to deliver the visa package).   She's nervously waiting for the DHL guy at this moment as I type this.

My wife's application is not without complication and drama. We had to send additional info and police clearance from Dubai which delayed the processing at least 2 months.

Hopefully they squeak in your wife's visa next week and you both get an early Christmas gift.Smile

Cheers !

Hi Carwin,
 
 We, colossal ,you and I and other batch here for June & July are stiil in process.Some says that the embassy has its quota for the year and I think they hit it already that is why the process is slowing down, in additiion to that Holidays are coming,But  on the brighter side its always good to know that inspite of the holidays etc. the embassy is still doing their job to process  visa under spouse. Sometimes we have to give credit to this people.
Anyway, lets keep believing God that it will happen on His perfect time.
Thank God that there is a forum like this, it keeps  me thinkin' that I am not alone in this Journey.
When its time to get our visa, I'm tellin you man theres no looking back,all are excitement and mix emotions.

hi everyone! it seems that everything is upgrading now ( im talking about friendster too). id like to update my status. I already received the AOR last Wednesday. They requested for my addresses since 2004, personal history since 2004 ( these are already included in our application package. dunno why they asked it again ), original NSO documents (since my hubby sent just photocopies as per the instruction of the immigration officer in their area. he's still fuming about this ) and our passports. i already sent all of these yesterday. im hoping that they won't request other documents just like what happened to other forum members here. my countdown for our visa officially started yesterday. im always hoping for the best and preparing for the worst.

cheers to all of us.
good luck!

October batch yata ako, hehehe.. kasi we submitted our apps october 5.

@shyme28
yap, thanks. what other documents did they ask from you? may son na din ako na included

@budabby they returned our application because when we submitted July we did not include our medical copy report! I know its a wasted time and money but we learned from that.

@proudmommy embassy asked the following documents..
1.Advisory of Marriages
2. Passports me and my son
3.Baptismal certificate
4. Birth certificate from Local Civil Registrar
5.Permanent elementary and high school records
Unhappy i hope sis even we have our dependents, i hope it will not slow on processing our applications.

i don't have dependents however i worked overseas for 5 years so this maybe a factor thats slows down my application, no further request aside from my passport(hopefully just this) Big smile

Hi everyone!

I just have a question..

My husband e-mailed me today and said that he received the RPR payment confirmation receipt from Missisauga dated Nov. 30'09. Will the Missisauga office notify the Canadian embassy-Manila regarding the payment confirmation OR it will be our responsibility to notify them of the payment?

To those who know, may answer my query.

Thank you and Good luck to each one of us.

Dear All
 
Canadian Immigration is the first name of "Waiting n Waitings"
 
When you apply you have to wait for 7 years to get first response for updation documents then 5 months for provisional approval then 6 motnhs for Medicals then 6 - 8 months for visa. Now, after arrival and after spending 3 years immigrant have to wait for passport/citizenship for 1-2 years.
 
When one apply in young age in 30 years and get passport in 42 years with tears. Cry

Hello, just want to tell something, im currently working also abroad. And Canadian Embassy Manila ask me to provide Police Clearance.. Actually, Police gave it to me w/o envelop. So, its ok! I just send it this morning.

Hope this can help.
