Default question re. PR visa processing at CHC, Delhi

Hi all,

My wife and I are confused about the processing of her visa app. (spousal
sponsored PR).
Some time ago we received an envelope from the CHC, Delhi, containing two
letters; one with medical forms, requesting her to undergo medical exams,
and stating the requirement to submit passport once medicals have been
taken; and the other letter advised that the interview requirement has been
waived. This letter also requested any outstanding police clearances.

Medicals were then taken (Dec.'02) and passport sent almost immediately
after that (courier company we used recorded it was delivered to CHC on Jan.
5th).

It has been my understanding from reading this NG that passports are
requested only once visas are approved. (Am I correct?!) But my wife's visa
has not yet been approved. This leads me to believe that perhaps we were
premature in submitting her passport. It's now been nearly 3 months my wife
has been without hers (big inconvenience!!) and we don't know what is
happening with the application.

Can anyone advise?

Thanks,

Brian.

It used to be that passports were requested when visa was ready to be
issued, but not anymore in some visa posts. If you read letter from New
Delhi carefully you'll see that it states that passport will be returned
with visa after case is approved and visa issued or without a visa if case
is refused.

Thanks for clarifying for me.
I must add that it sure is unreasonable to be without one's passport for
months on end! We followed the request to submit it with the impression that
such a situation couldn't be the case.
In hindsight, do you believe it would have been advisable to hold on to the
passport for a while longer?

Why keep the passport? Any particular reason or already planned and arranged
travel? If not then just submit it, otherwise you may face further delays in
processing.

Yes, passport has been in the pocession of CHC Delhi since Jan. 5th. My
point is it's surely an inconvenience to be without a passport for this
long. For reasons of need/desire to travel, plus which my wife is resident
outside her country of citizenship - so the need to show passport as ID doc.
is rather important.

But yes, I can see how it will save a couple of weeks processing time if
they don't have to request it after approval of the PR visa.
