Subject: Timeline after appeal allowed
Date Posted: 30 Nov 2009 at 8:20pm
Hi All,
Can you all please share your timelines after winning ADR? I like to know how long takes Visa office to finalize the case for eg...
When written Decision of Appeal was received?
When CBSA send the file to New Delhi?
When CHC-ND received it?
When E-CAS was updated?
When and what information was requested first or did they asked for meds, pcc and updated forms?
Was PPR followed after this? When was it requested?
Finally passport received with visa.
 
Here is my timeline...
Decision of Appeal:-End of Sept, 09
CBSA send the file to ND:-End of Sept, 09
CHC-ND received file:-End of Oct, 09
E-CAS updated:First week of Nov, 09
PCC and updated forms requested:- End of Oct, 09
Forms sent:- Mid of Nov, 09
Meds redo request:- Last week of Nov, 09
Meds done:- End of Nov, 09
PPR received Mid Dec, 09
PP received end of Dec, 09 Big smile

Please include any other transaction I may have missed so we all have a clear understanding.

Thanks all.

Hi AGM,
Thanks. Yes I did receive med request which was completed last week only.  I don't know how long we have to wait now.  My wife ended up going back to same DMP as he was the only available at the time.
 
Any update on your side?
 
*********************************************************************
Hi - tima,

Looks like you have received Medical request, Congratulations!!.

There are two DMPs in Hyderabad and both of them are not listed in the list that is included with medical request, Therefore don't bother about DMPs list sent by CHC, my guess it's out dated, you can visit the same office you visited last time.

Actually I've just received the list but it is missing the DMP who I originally went to. The online list on CIC site still shows him on the list. Can you let me know if we have to go to the one listed or we can go back to the original DMP?

BTW- who did you go to before and after appeal?


Thanks

That is over 2yrs rbenoit.  What was your reason for refusal?



Posted By: rbenoit
Date Posted: 04 Dec 2009 at 8:47am
Relationship was deemed to be only bf/gf so did not qualify as family.
From sending in the notice of appeal to getting the visa was 23 months.
 
You can add another 7 months to that as we originally sent in the sponsorship application in april 2006.
 
And if you include the oriinal attempts to get visitor visa in Aug 2005 well, the whole process has left an extreme negative view of this countries bureaucratic process.  Not sure if I will ever shake it. It basically felt like being in prison for 2 years. Time I will never get back.

I got my Decision letter dated Nov. 28 and our ecas hasn't changed. Still says decision made from when hubby was refused. I wish it would show something other than decision made. Everytime I check my heart does a little jump before my brain kicks in and says ok yeah, that is from last year!!!

Date Posted: 10 Dec 2009 at 2:48pm
Mingus, did you use the same client ID # from before? My old ID # doesnt not let me access my ecas, As natnat said, i should, perhaps contact the IAD to see if my file has been assigned new client ID.

stressout25, don't worry about e-cas.  They never keep that up to date.
Technically your file is in process as you received request from the VO :-)  They just didn't bother updating it.

It took several weeks for our ecase to be re-enabled.
We were told that ecas accounts are disabled after 1 year.
Should an appeal be allowed then the ecas accounts gets re-anabled.

tima,

Still no update. I am very upset due to this delay, Last month I inquired with CHC ND and and they said the "file is under review". I think there is no other option other than waiting...

Any update on your end?

AGM

Date Posted: 13 Dec 2009 at 11:12am

Hi AGM, why are they doing this?  Are you presently in India?  Have you tried going to CHC-ND?  You are a canadian citizen, right?  As a citizen you can demand to talk to an immigration officer at the CHC-ND and ask what the hell is going on.

For me it is hard as I am still in CANADA.
I've made couple enquiries but haven't received anything.  Last I heard that an officer will review my case.  I don't get what is left to review.
 
Hopefully we get something before end of the year.
 
Please keep in touch and again thanks for helping all of us out.

H- tima,
I am presently in India and seriously have no plans of returning to Canada until they issue visa.
Do you think meeting with V/O will be of any help in terms of speeding the process? haven't heard that before. I have another issue, my visit visa is expiring end of this month, not sure if extension is possible? will find out today.

tima, 

Same here no updates  Confused 

Question for you, do you check e-case with Old Immigration File # No. or the new one that is assigned after the appeal was allowed.

I can check the e-case with both the old and new IMM file No's.

Also we have two Link under "Permanent Residence Application Status" 

First Link say's : "In-Process" - We started processing your application on May 20, 2009.

Second Link :  "Decision Made" has the same old Sh..it"

Hi AGM,
Actually I am not able to pull up the info with old file number.  I can only pull up info with client ID and new file number.   Once opened it says "In-Process" - We started processing your application on Oct 23, 2009.
 
I would still say you demand to speak to VO as it has exceeded normal timelines.  They should attend you and provide you status update as you are a Canadian Citizen.

I called CBSA, first they told me they have not recieved the decision letter yet, that made me nervous beause i received mine about two weeks ago. I thought maybe their's got lost in the mail or something. they found it burried under pile of others letters they hadn't looked at yet. Then i was told that it would take 6-8 weeks for them to transfer the file to ND visa office.

3-4 week is usual time.  I would attach the copy of decision and send it to them via the inquiry link as an attachment.

Here is the link for Delhi office.... You can make a request to have them start processing your case at the VO based on the decision letter the mailed you.  Attach the scan copy of the letter and send it to them.  This will save you time while CBSA deliver the copy of decision to CHC-ND via diplomat mail.

Hello everyone on this thread, and congrats to all of you who have finally gotten your visas/or those of you who are already with your spouses here in Canada. I am hoping and praying that finally 2010 will be our year to have this nightmare end for me and my husband. For now, it is three months since my ADR conference was cancelled at the last minute by Minister's Council who said ADR protocol calls for one hour conference and because of the vast amount of proof of genuine marriage I sent, they said our case will need full day of court. I am so tired of being put constantly at the back of the Immigration Visa line up. But I am assured by your experiences and cases that there is an end to it. In 2010 we will celebrate three years married. How many years were you married before visa was given? Give me an idea if our time will come soon..........

is it ok for me to leave in feb for one month or two, or i should stay in canada for their response? 
it will be great if anyone of you could tell me that if they ask me for evidences, what should i send, and can help me to win my case???

Hi Guys,
It's been over two months since I send in the updated forms, Police Clearance, etc, to the visa office. And still I can't hear anything from them. They didn't send me the form to redo medicals as yet. What should I do? I am sooo worry, I wonder if this process will ever end for me.

Thanks for sharing, but its wierd to note that your case was rejected just because "the wedding pictures were simple".....
 
They should do a background check for the genuine marriage rather than just denying based on the wedding pictures.....did your marriage had the formal reception, if so, did you send them your reception pictures..??
 
All the best for your appeal...
 
My case, I have just applied for my wife and it is currently in ND.

There is no final decision yet on my case. I am still praying for a positive response from the IO this month. But i am gathering informations now just in case it will not be a good news (hope not!)

My case is about an undeclared family member. I am sponsoring my husband as spouse but the IO concluded that we were in a common law relationship before i landed in Canada and i failed to declare him. We got married AFTER i became a PR, so i landed as single. But in the sponsorship application form, we declared that we lived together when we were in another country as foreign workers. I was not denying it, but it doesn't also mean that we were having a common law relationship. Aside from living together, we never presented anything like joint accounts or bills or properties because we never had any of those. The house where we used to live in was actually a foreign worker complex where 8 of us were living in 1 floor. All questions about former spouses or common law or conjugal partners, we answered NO.

It was really a big mistake for us to declare cohabitation without being fully aware of its meaning.

We received a procedural fairness letter asking for our explanation why I did not declare my husband as a common law partner. LOL! (i had to laugh at that one!) I answered in full details and all honesty. But at the end of the day, it will still depend on the IO if he is having a bad day or a good day. I have read a similar case us mine way back in 2006 and they were refused. But the IO couldn't provide any evidence why he/she believed that the parties were in a common law relationship. The IO just said they were adults so they were consenting parties. By the time of appeal, the judge conceded the case coz of lack of evidence from the part of IO. It was sad because it took them 2 yrs to get the visa just because of the incompetency of the IO who handled their application. And one similar case i have read just recently, after they replied in the procedural fairness letter from the IO, they were granted the visa.

Good luck to each and everyone of us. I am praying for everyone here. I believe in the power of prayers. I told my husband we are all like the story of David and Goliath, and God as our weapon, we can all win this battle.

Hello friends,

 thought let you know that ND has started processing my husband's file. I sent them my copy of the decision letter on Dec.18.(appeal allowed Nov.4)I am not sure how to check exactly when they started the process although  I think i could call CBSA to find out.

Hi - Kamjeet,

CBSA's role for appeal allowed cases is to  forward original client file to the visa office, so they will have limited information. It's better to follow up with CHC ND.

You may also check  e-case using your client ID - [xxxx-xxxx] 

Good Luck

Stressout,

 
No they have not requested that yet. it just the travel form, background declaration, additional family and they want some sort of sworn affidavit and asked for security clearance.
 
Does he need to include each family member and their pictures in the sworn affidavit?

HI All,
still nothing on my end. I emailed the embassy and they said they still have not gotten my husband's file. I talked to CIC they still do not have that we won our appeal on file and no one can help me. Everyone says I need to talk to someone else.

Anyone got the phone # of CBSA in Edmonton? All I can find is at the Airports and they are no help.

Mingus can you fax them copy of your letter. I did that and ND accepted and started processing my husband's file. Do call the CBSA office first, I waited about a month for them to re-open my file, when i called CBSA they said they didn't have the decision letter yet. i told them to double check as i had aleady received mine 2 weeks prior to that. They called me back said they found it barried under some other mail they hadn't looked at yet. So i emailed ND my copy of the letter and told them CBSA had misplaced their copy and will forward it to them accordingly.

I have emailed a copy to the Visa office. I would send a copy to the CNSA in Edmonton or call them, but no one will give me a phone number. All it get is the CIC number in Miss or the IRB number is Vancouver.

I hate this waiting n waiting n more waiting......

stressout, i was kinda surprised when they sent the form for Foreign travel Detials . usually they send that when they send you request for passport. So I don't think you have anything to worry about. Hope you hear something soon

Well by some grace of God I actually talked to someone yesterday who could give me a phone number for CBSA in Edmonton. I was told that our file was returned to Damascus in November via diplomatic mail bag - but it may take on average 2 months to get there and worst case it could be 4 months!
Am I crazy in thinking that this just isn't good enough? 4 Months? What is it going by donkey?

i don't understand this ..i was told by lawyer's office that once you decide to appeal, your visa office keeps the original file and send  photocopies or scans the file  to Canada. after appeal allowed, CBSA e-mails the decision letter to the visa office. ....there is no such thing is whole file going back and forth.


Posted By: mingus
Date Posted: 20 Jan 2010 at 2:49pm
That is what I am being told from All levels that I have talked to: The IRB, CBSA, and CIC. That the files came from the visa office, are copied and sent out (your appeals record) and once you win the files have to be sent back to the visa office.

I don't think they will ever put the original file in the mail.....what if it gets lost???????
They say that to us..so they can take their time.....it's all scanned...plus the decision letter is not sent via mail, it's e-mailed to the visa office at least that's what i was told by the CBSA in Vancouver.....i don't think they tell us the truth about anything!!!
