Default Phone number for High Commision

Hi
I sent my application for TWP 6 weeks ago and have heard nothing at all. Need to be in Vancouver on 8th Oct to sit the nursing exam - help!!

Does anyone have a phone number to get through to the High Commission?

when i was called for extra info for my app, the phone caller display read 0207 258 6300.

i have never called it yet though...

let us know to what/whom you are connected to when you call.

good luck.

good luck trying to speak to someone at the high commision, it took me ringing the mission section of the commision and leaving messages on there 'emergency voicemail' to get anyone to call me.

ring the mission and ask to leave a message on their voicmail, am sure others have had better luck though whilst waiting 5 years for PR

I doubt that they will respond, as the TWP is within their 6 week processing time frame, then you have to add mail time.

Surely if you need a medical then there's no way you'll be out there by October?! I thought having to have a medical added several months on to the standard 6 weeks for a TWP application? Hope that I'm wrong though!

If time gets really tight, could you apply at POE?

Good luck, hope you hear something soon!!

Edited to add: just searched CIC website and found this "A medical examination may add over three months to the processing of your application."

Hi
You can get a medical the next day in Harley Street and blood results take about 5-7 days - that's it, unless you have any medical problems, which I don't, so it's still just about possible to get there by Oct as long as the med forms come in the next few days!!
Don't iknow if I can apply at POE. Will look into it. Don't think so tho' as another nurse I know is going to BC and she says we need meds as we're going to be workingin the public sector. She got all her paperwork done in a matter of weeks, bu that was much earlier in the year when things were quieter. Unfortunately her house sale fell thru at the last minute, so has it back on the market!!

Just managed to speak to someone at the HIgh Commision. She says it takes 6-8 weeks to process application and add on a further 4 weeks if you need a medical - so guess I just need to wait longer. More postie watching then!!
