I wish they would hurry up


I was told at one of the recent working in events in Manchester, that the reason why the opening day is a Saturday is so that they can (and may) make changes to the application form/criteria/process right up to the last min.

In fact I was even told to not be surprised if "the new list" is released on 3rd May...

So you made the list huh scribe123.... Oh I'm so excited for you

Yep, I'm on the list, but I'm not counting my chickens until the 1) the new forms are out 2) they are sent and delivered and 3) my credit card has been charged (which should mean I've made the cut from a quota point of view).

I'll then rest a *little* easier and hope all goes well. After my wife's NOC quota filling two years ago; and the FSW door being closed at the last minute last year; this will be the third time we've geared up for this. I'm told patience is a virtue

I think in general from most posts on this forum you need the patience of a saint

I really would not recommend paying via credit card. If for any reason they cannot charge the card - not enough funds/security block by your cc provider, they will just return your pack. A bank draft is always the safer option.

As Siouxie said, it's already open. Do you have your IELTS and credentials assessment etc? If so, you're good to go!

What NOC code are you applying under?

Good luck.

I'm applying under skill code 1112. I believe i have all the documents and the ECA was sent out a few weeks ago so expecting that in the next few weeks.

I just can't find the IM008 form. All the other forms which are pdf files show up, but the IM008 form does not show up. It states that I need to update adobe, which I have, but still the same message comes up. I assumed that because I can see the other forms that they may not have released the new IM008 form.

Maybe I am wrong. Can you help?

'Next few weeks' is likely to be too late, will it definitely take that long? If so, fingers crossed the quota doesn't fill before then.

It's working fine on my computer, so is definitely there.

Good luck with it.

It's because it has dynamic content I think. Have you tried with another browser? I would just carry on with filling out the rest and then try again later, this problem has occurred before. It's a generic application form so wouldn't be FSW specific.

I managed to open it using Nitro Reader, it's a free pdf reader, but as it needs to be validated this won't be of use for filling it out - but at least you would be able to see what the content is.

We should have a sweep stake on how long it takes to fill up.

I just hope my application makes the cut.

Judging by the spreadsheet on canadavisa.com forums, I think NOCs 1112, 2147 and 2174 will fill up very quickly, probably in a matter of weeks. Possibly in a matter of days!

Judging by your signature I am guessing you applied under 2147?

Seems a number of applicants are ready to post shortly but waiting for WES confirmations etc. Have you mailed your application yet?
