Default NEED ADVICE!! Cat 3 FSW application rejected? :(

Hi All, really need some help with this one!

Received a rejection letter today for our application, I am confused as to why the decision is rejection if anyone can shead some light we would be really grateful - here is some back ground.

May 09 - 10 - WHV, lived and worked full time for 1 whole year in Toronto.
May 10 - while still in the country applied under Cat 3 FSW (which myself and imm lawyer understood us to be eligible for - lived and work in the country as a temp work for 1 whole year prior to application)with no direct link to NOC codes.
The rest of the time line is on my signture.

The letter stats we are rejected because we dont meet the critiria as a) our NOC code job is not in the list (which it never needed to be - this sounds like cat 2??) 2) b) we don't have a perm job offer (again not part of cat 3 critiria, i think this relates to cat 1) ???
I believe this to be how it was stated but only had this read to me over the phone as I am out of the country at present??

If anyone has knowledge of Cat 3 and understand why this might of happened it woul dreally help - I know the cat3 got removed last year, but all application already in where still accepted

Thanks in advance

Gareth

I suggest you ask your lawyer to write to the Immigration Program Manager. It seems CIC may have made a mistake.

For the small cost (relative to time and costs incurred so far) i would contact a lawyer and have them straighten it out, it appears London decided to reject 2/3 of FSW1's last week and maybe your application just got mixed up in the pile.

Myself and RICH have both used Mr Pahl and reccommend his service.

Assuming you can prove the job was for 1 full year and was at NOC Level 0,A, or B you would seem to have a good case.

I agree it is probably better though to have a representative take this up with the Immigration Program Manager - if this approach fails you are looking at the expense of going to Federal Court.

The visa and immigration section no longer publish a fax number. If you want contact details other than the mailing address published on the CHC web-site then PM us and we will give you the latest contact information we have.
