Now had AOR and Ecas 'Received by Visa Office ' for 9 weeks. Is this normal or panic time. My Work Permit expires in 2 months.

Well your definitely in good company, not sure if this is common or not to be honest but it doesn't appear that anything is moving very quickly at the moment.

I'd hope we see some movement in the next couple of weeks! Bear in mind though that as of yesterday London is also processing applications from Pakistan, I guess this can only slow things down more?

I think that our estimation of landing in August has been well and truly blown out of the water
I am not going to even look at Ecas any more....no I'm not...well maybe a wee peek on a Wednesday morning. Why do I insist on looking when I know its not going to change We got out AOR in March, sorry for gatecrashing your thread, but using it as a yardstick on progress of those in from of us. Good luck to you all and here's to you all getting med requests

Could this be the reason for the delay?

I would start the renewal process, it is highly unlikely that you will get PR within your time frame.

Good luck

We are still waiting - I bet the next thing we hear from them is a request for medicals. I don't trust that Ecas will change off 'Recieved'.

Hey Binty, after your medical requests, how long do you think it will be until you get your visa in your passport?

Hi STC,

At the time of receiving our med requests it seemed that 4-weeks or thereabouts was the average time to wait for PPR. We are now 30 days after the meds so i suppose it could be any time from now (all being well with med results) but as we all know from posts on BE; just when you think you've sussed CIC's work pattern 'BAM' you're proved wrong.

To answer your question simply; in an ideal world around 8-10weeks i guess. That's taking into account, booking and taking the meds, CHC receiving and reviewing them, dropping off and picking up passports/visas from CHC.

Hope this helps

Binty
