Just got this email from Ottawa Pilot

Your file has been forwarded to our office in Buffalo for completion of processing. You should hear from them in 6-10 weeks about payment of the Right of Permanent Residence Fee and visa issuance procedures.


Good news yes... but another bloomin' wait. Problem is that as we have rep in way of company lawyer we don't pay the fee ourselves and they may wait until requested

Is the fee request from Buffalo at the same time or before passport requests, I imagine it would be before. So frustrating this may hold it all up yet longer

Any thoughts anyone?

OPPOP is an unknown quantity at this point

It seems like that Buffalo Is pretty slow in finalizing these. i received the email from Ottawa 3 weeks ago that my file is finalized, but haven't received passport request from Buffalo yet.

I had a similar thread on this a while back - some say they ask for it together, some say they ask for it before.

Suppose it would make more sense to ask for them together. I'm planning on taking the passports to Buffalo, so would be handy to just take the cash with me rather than arseing around with bankers drafts and couriers.

Thank you so much. The lawyer has confirmed they are now sending the RTPR fee to Buffalo, so hopefully we will not be too far behind you with our passport requests

Oh and ECAS was updated this week to say meds received.

I am so pleased for you.

We got an e-mail yesterday asking for the extra docs they asked for. So I replied by telling them they will be with them by mid next weeks and gave then exact dates of posting. So hopefully we will also hear in the next few weeks. Might even see you at the border, dancing around the flagpole next to me!!!!!!!!

Hope yours all goes smoothly

Haha, where are you planning to flagpole? We're not sure yet, suppose it really depends on the time of year that it eventually comes through and how much snow is still on the ground!

Not sure on where yet to flagpole. It will just be a long weekend trip away.
So looking forward to the end of this process

Thanks Keith
We need to look into it as I heard there was about a 6 week wait. I sound impatient but, we need to do this as soon as we can. Lots of reasons at the mo
