Default Mr. Miller, and other experts, please please advise

I am Software Engineer working on H1 status in United States for last
three years.
I applied for canadian immigration To Baffalo in Skilled working
category in June '2002, Received AOR in November '2002. Didn't hear
anything after that. I understand that its taking long to process, but
my concern is that i might loose my job and in that case i will have
to go back to my home country india. I can think of following two
scenarios. Experts, please advise which could work best for me.

1. Notify Canadian embassy of this change and tranfer case to embassy
in New Dehli, there it could take 3-4 years to re-process everything
from scratch.

2. Do not notify them of this change. Have forwarding of mails to one
of my friend's address. Now if they give me waiver of interview, my
understanding is that i can get my medical work done in my home
country ( Is this true?), this way i can save a lot of time. In case
they do not award me interview waiver, i am stucked.

I will highly appreciate any advise in this regards.
Thanks

You must notify Buffalo about moving back to India and provide them with
your residential address there. You may also change mailing address to the
one in US (your friend's). Transfer of files may not be possible as Buffalo
clearly states on their website that they don't grant file transfer requests
anymore.

If interview waiver is granted then you will be OK and can undergo medicals
in India. But if interview is required and you won't be able to attend one
in US then you may have to file new application in New Delhi anyway.

Thanks Mr. Miller for the response,
This sounds like a bad news that they are no more granting file
transfers.
Could you please provide me the link on Buffalo site describing
details of this. I tried to search at www.cic.gc.ca but couldn't find
this particular link.

Thanks a lot again.

Immigration section of Buffalo's consulate is here:

http://www.dfait-maeci.gc.ca/can-am/...p?mid=5&cat=68

Click on the link to Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) in the right side menu
and then scroll down to the "Processing Times" section (about 3/4 down the
page) and read the last Q&A in that section - it clearly states in the
answer the following: "Under the new Immigration and Refugee Protection Act,
we no longer transfer files."

I may be moving to Pakistan in July 2003 and currently my file is in
NY office as i am awaiting for my interview. They send me a lettter
back in July 2002 that I would be called for an interview and along
with that they send me medical papers with advise that I should do
medical once i get my interview date.

If i go back to pakistan do i need to file a new application and have
to submit new fee and every other document?

Please advise

If you leave US before the interview date and are unable to attend one in NY
then your application will most likely be refused and you will have to
re-apply.

One way to solve your problem would be to get a visitor visa in case
you have to attend the interview.

Can't I ask the NY office to transfer my file to pakistan. Actually
after receiving the interview letter i got married and now filing for
my wife who is in pakistan. I need your advise on what should i do
now? Should i apply for her from US or ask the NY office to transfer
my file to pakistan and then apply for her.

I am pretty sure because of this change in status they would delay my
interview further.

Please Advise.

Thanks

Interview won't be delayed just because you got married, but the entire
process may take longer, depending how fast you add your wife to your case.

You may request file transfer to Islamabad, although there is a substantial
probability that such request will not be granted. But if you are lucky and
file is transferred then processing will start almost from the scratch in
Islamabad and you'll waste all processing time since you originally applied.

Majority of posts from those who "just got married" comes from Indian and
Pakistani applicants. It must be a good business getting married on
Subcontinent after interview letter, eh?

But just don't know whether such a good business will go forever,
especially if the interview is failed. Do you know it?

I have faxed them thrice to inform about change in my marital status
but i have not heard anything from the NY office..i dont know what to
do..I have asked my wife to prepare all the documents so that if they
send me any info i have everything ready.
I have asked her to prepare these doucments:
Birth certificate, marriage certificate, degrees/diploma and
photgraphs. I checked with the Buffalo website that you dont need to
submit a police certificate if you are citizen of pakistan.Should i
also ask her to get the police certificate? Also i have filled a
additional family form along with fees. Is there anything i need to do
on my part?

Thanks
