Default Which office to select to process PR application ?

Hi All,

Thanks in advance for helping out.

I have been nominated by PNP and I am entering canada on a work permit next week. I intend to send my paper work after i arrive in Canada so which office should I select on form 008 to process my application ?

I have read that if I select an office inside canada it takes a lot longer then the country of my citizenship. I am Australian and the PNP processing time in sydney is 12 months as compared to 17 months in canada.

Can I choose sydney ?

Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Sorry, but just to disagree with this, you can't choose Sydney, as it's not a visa office.

You can however, choose Ottawa if you have been admitted to Canada for a year or more.

HTH.

You have to send it to NS first (as I am sure you are aware) but yes, you can designate Sydney Australia as the processing office if you prefer to.

Ooops, sorry! I assumed it was Sydney NS. Serve me right for skim reading on an iphone.
