Smile got it!! Vienna, skilled worker

Skilled worker,
I applied in Vienna, I am living in Canada and have a permanent HRDC approved job

Application: May 2004
AOR: May 2004
Request for Medicals: July 2004
Medicals sent: September 2004
PP request: less than two weeks after the medicals sent
PP submitted and landing fee paid: Mid November 2004
PP received: 10 days later
Landed: TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The whole process was less than seven months. I had only two letters from the embassy one for requesting the medicals and the other with the pp request. I was quite slow responding to them. (2months for medicals and almost two months for sending my pp)

I prepared the application myself. I submitted all necessary documents upfront(except the medicals and ROLF) and where I did not hade documents I explained why.


Landing:
I had an afternoon off. I drove to the nearest border crossing, had a lunch in the States (spent maybe an hour there) and came back. THe whole landing procedure was about 15-20 min. THe immigration officers were very pleasant. I even got the welcome to Canada speech! Back to the car and drove home.


THanks for all your help and good luck to everybody! This forum is GREAT!!
