Question How long before you hear anything from CHC London?

Hey there. 1st time posting on forum. Have picked up some great info from you guys.
Has anyone else here requested concurrent processing from CHC London while they await +ve LMO? Sent off application for TWP end of August and have not had any feedback yet.
Since sending off TWP have received +ve LMO from HRSDC, but reluctant to send it to CHC until i get a file number.
Is 4 weeks with no news being a touch impatient?
Anyone else out there in similar situation?

Hi welcome to BE,

We are not far from you, in Christchurch

Here is a link to a current thread with lots of info re peoples time lines on TWP, from what I have seen it is taking longer than 4 weeks If you require a medical for the job role then it is ading even more to the time line.

http://britishexpats.com/forum/showthread.php?t=546804

If you are looking at a quicker timeframe you could consider applying for the TWP at Port of Entry( as long as you don't require a medical)

Here is a link to the wiki re POE method

Good luck

Hi, i've checked that thread and i was just wondering whether i should have at least had some sort of notification from CHC that they've received application, or does it not work like that???

Thought about applying at POE but wanted to get things moving, unfortunately +ve LMO received 12 days after i posted TWP application!!

That's a shame re the LMO being so quick(don't see that said often on here),its difficult to judge how long things are going to take. To be honest I'm not sure that they even acknowledge TWP applications, but I think I have seen somewhere on here that they say to not contact them by email until 6 weeks have passed.

When members have emailed it seems to be very sporadic as to if/when you get a reply.

You can still apply at POE, although may mean you lose the fee already sent to CHC.

Kinda thought that might be the case. I'll give it another couple of weeks and see what happens.

LMO was applied for end of June!! (Alberta) Came through last monday. Just over 2 months.

Oh well, looks like i'll just have to joint the rest of you and play the waiting game!!

Hi
I would send the LMO asap as I've just had my TWP application refused as I had no LMO. They just rejected and closed the application and I've had to pay and reapply all over again. They don't send you any proof of receipt of your application. If you send the correct stuff they send you medical forms and ask for anything else missing. From my experience, if you can't prove that giving you a TWP would not have a 'neutral or positive effect' on Canada they just reject your application outright

Hi,

I did send a covering letter with my application explaining that i wanted to apply for concurrent processing, as per the website. Hopefully they read it!!

When i went to Canada Expo in London, i had a chat with one of the immigration officers and he advised me to apply for concurrent processing and it wouldn't be a problem, ie send in TWP application, then send in LMO when approved.

Wait and see!!
