Default Which month is being processed now?

Hi fellow wannabe Canadians!

I'm a new member at this site, and am wondering which month is being processed now?
In another group I'm a member of, we finally heard about the first Feb 2004 AOR getting their medicals request - is that the standing here as well?

I'm a March AOR and getting antsy...

----------
Skilled Worker application
Application sent: Jan 31, 2004
AOR: March 22, 2004 (stating a 15 month wait)
Medical request: Hoping to hear soon...
PPR:.........
Landing: Hopefully September...

Yep, late Jan early Feb 04 AOR's for London, seem to be getting bit hit on meds request right now.

Seemed to all happen really quickly, hope they are playing catch up now, if PPR and visa is about 2-3 months away we'll be well happy !!!

Here's to the happy dance wiggle wiggle

'we thought your house was up for sale?

'heard anything

blah blah drone drone

It's rather boring now after nigh on two years !!! Wish we hadn't told anyone, but we did in the midst of all the excitement, and regret it somewhat !

AOR Feb 23rd??? Now I'm getting even more anxious :scared: , we're the 2nd and have heard diddly squat. Major paranoia attack coming on. I know what you all mean about the questions. I'm starting to feel like a fraud. People say "I thought you were going to Canada?" "What are you still doing here?" I reckon that some people think I'm some kind of saddo who made the whole thing up to make my life sound more interesting

I think they drag it out to boost the Canadian economy. The longer it takes, the more "fact finding" trips you are likely to go on, thus spending money on airline tickets, car hire, accomodation, food, obligatory clothing purchases etc...

*squeezes into the queue, behind gooding, of course! :-)*

I think I was very lucky to get the 15 month wait - almost everyone else I know of, got 18. Hopefully it really means something, apart from being digits on the card...

If so, their tactics didn't work with me, as I'm using a Nowegian airline, and staying with friends and not spending much money when I'm there!

Default Re: Which month is being processed now?

Well the London applicant I mentioned above, (AOR Feb 23rd '04, med requests received yesterday), was given an expected wait time of up to 18 months on their AOR and heard at 14 months to the day!!!

Which just goes to show, ...... don't get too hung up on 15-18-21 months or whatever....there IS no rhyme or reason ....I think it depends on whose desk your file lands on as much as anything ....whether they are a fast/slow worker, or how pernicketty they are ...... I dunno!
