My boyfriend spoke to a friend of his last night who lives in Calgary, and he recommended that we go with the consultant as doing it yourself could take up to 3 years for the visa to come through with the way things are at the moment. I realise that lots of people have applied without help and have had visas come through pretty quickly, but I was just wondering if anyone knows how long it would roughly take if we dont use the adviser?

Many thanks

Hi
Lisa
Your timeline will depend on how complex your background,work history, criminal etc etc, take others time frames as a guide only as each application is processed individually. My application was approved in just over 7 months back when i applied in March 09 not too sure how CHC are processing FSW at the moment the 'trackit' website may help with this question.
I think 6 - 12 m is an average for a fairly straight forward FSW application
hope this helps
