Default Interview and processing time related to passmark 67

Can anyone tell me how the new passmark will influence the time of
processing for PR? The official source of data would be appreciated.
Can it be expected that the interview itself will be canceled?

Sincerely: Artur

The official source of data will be available about a year from now when
statistics for period after lowering pass mark are known. But you can be
sure that number of applications will be rather huge as more people qualify
now under new law with 67 points pass mark than number of those who
qualified under the old law. And the old law created huge backlog resulting
in long processing times, thus expect at least the same now.

Interview requirement or waiver are not influenced by pass mark or number of
points scored by applicant at all.

So Dear Mr. Miller, could you please tell us what influences the
interview requirement or waiver if the pass mark or number of points
scored by applicant do not?

Interview is waived when processing officer determines that selection
decision can be made on the basis of information and evidence submitted with
application, that everything is conclusively documented and nothing is left
to be verified, clarified or questioned in any way.

Points are not awarded if claims are not conclusively proven - so, if
officer sees that anything is not conclusively documented but such proof may
be provided at the interview or if there is anything else in your file that
is not clear or leaves any kind of doubts then interview is called upon.

The conclusion - quality, completeness of application and conclusive enough
evidence, no inconsistencies or discrepancies, everything clear and
verifiable and nothing left to any questions or doubts is your only key to
interview waiver. And don't forget making sure to convince officer that you
have good chance to successfully establish yourself economically in Canada,
so she or he won't have any reason to use substitute evaluation to reject
your case regardless fact that your points reached or exceeded pass mark.

Hope the above answers your question.

Oops...

I forgot to mention that interview - contrary to popular belief - is not a
chance to score any additional points. There are no points to be awarded at
the interview and if application package is conclusive enough to see that
applicant can't reach pass mark then case is rejected by most visa posts at
the paper screening stage.

Just to follow on from there, if you are invited for interview, does it then mean that you have scored the minimum points or more on paper at least?

Will they be looking for additional information to supplement or iron out discreprancies in your application, or is it purely a chance for you to demonstrate that you can become economically established in Canada?

Interview could mean more than one thing.

Points could be just below accepted standard but application paper look good
and they may think you have underscored yourself.

Points are good but application is not 100% and they want to check a few
things

Everything looks good but it could be a Q.A. interview
(although this is usually indicated in letter)

All the people I have spoken who have had an interview, have looked upon it
as a good sign.

Confidence is the key at the interview. Mine was a Q.A. interview and at the
end I asked the officer WHEN (not if) my PR would be issued. Lots of people
look at the interview as daunting, but in mine and other experiences it was
not.
