Default PNP federal forms initial acknowledgment

Hi - I haven't used a forum before so I'm new to this. We have posted our PNP federal application forms to Buffalo and I was wondering how long they take to initially acknowledge - it's been 4 weeks since we posted it and they haven't cashed the cheque yet - is this normal? Many thanks

Red face Re: PNP federal forms initial acknowledgment

thanks emma - i'll try to stop checking the online banking everyday - my OH said that someone he was talking to had their cheque cashed 5 weeks after they posted their forms off - and they have to go for their medical 16 weeks after they posted their forms - they posted them 1st week of april - we posted ours 1st week of july so maybe holidays are causing short staffing problems or something

I read somewhere if you send them an email, they send an email back asking you not to contact them for 30 weeks after posting your application!!! That seems pretty insane as it's over 6 months!!!! I have a client ID on my work permit to I am using the trackitt system. I sent in a banker's cheque so I am not sure how I could tell if they cashed it or not. I guess it's just a waiting game!!!!

From what I have read on other forums, seems Buffalo is back logged big time.

Many applications are being sent to other regional offices in the USA, to help the work load.

Not sure why this is happening but I suspect it is because LMO's have become harder and harder to get since the recession and so many more people are taking the PNP route, which enables them to apply for PR.
