We were then ushered off into another section with our goods to follow forms (definately bring those as well as goods accompanying even if you're only landing and returning to UK, they were hot on this), and then we were throug....all a bit of an anti-climax really after all the waiting but of course a fantastic moment as well.

Back to pouding pavements job-hunting, neighbourhood exploring and generally getting to know this soon-to-be-new-home...Good luck to everyone else, I hope things begin to speed up again soon


Thanks gjack,
We too are landing in Toronto (not til April) so keep us updated or I'll pM you. Enjoy it

This thread is to track our progress, I'll start with my timeline:

FSW1 (NOC 0111) CIO app sent to CIO 01/10/09
Received Nova Scotia 07/10/09
120 day letter received 23/12/09
Full app sent to London 20/01/10
AOR received (and new file number) 29/01/10

I know there's the other 'CIO' thread started by Martin but I think has got a bit busy and it's difficult to keep track of the useful posts.

Can we please try to keep on topic and only update with relevant information.

Thanks and good luck.

Stuart.
Hi,

Nearly 4 mths on now since in process and still no meds requests. I'm going slightly mental!!!. The 'not knowing' is so frustrating i just want to sell up and go!.

The guys who's applications have taken 3,4,5 yrs must have the patience of a saint!.

Sorry i just felt like a bit of a rant as i know i'm not alone on this one.

Gav.

A friend of mine waited 3 years, got back to normal life, forgot about it and then it came... Now he's living here (for the last 2 years) and just got married 2 weeks ago.. lol

He's loving life and accepted the wait..

Its torture I know, but try your best to stay sane... Keep ya head up
