Hi all,
Need some info regarding my case as it matches up with this thread,

I filed my case / application for (FSW) and it reached CIC Sidney on the 24th December, 2009 (as per postal service track) but till today i havent recieved anything, no reply/ acknowledgement or even my application back (if rejected), Its been 4.5 months and still with no light.

Is there anyway, i can ask them the status of my application, where it actually is? or maybe according to them they have recieved it or not?

Any email address? fax number? Telephone number? or any suggestion that would help me acquire this basic information.

thanks and regards

JFK.

Hi Martin

I sent a follow-up e-mail as you advised me with the bank draft as reference, do you have an idea after how much time they respond?

Thanks

Hi, I sent my application last March 23 using my credit card, and now I just learned that 24ksomething was charged to my account in the name of Immigration Canada, however, I still haven't received any mail or email from Canada as of this date, I'm worried because i wasn't able to monitor my emails (since i put my email address in my application i think they will send any communications through emails). and if it landed on my spam box, then there is a possibility that it can be deleted anytime without my knowledge,, what shall I do about this?

How much was charged to your credit card, and when? When exactly was your application received? And how did you pay by credit card if you applied last March (they only started accepting credit cards on 8th September 2009 for SW applications)?

And yes, they will send your 120 day letter via email if you've put an email address on the form.

agggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

just needed to do that. get that out there amongst people that can empathize.

Still haven't had a response after we replied to their request of needing more information. Most applicants on the same timeline as me got their medical requests already. I am now in Month 10.

I am going through a 'I WANT TO BE THERE NOW' phase. In the past its always been a 'i might go, i might not, lets see if i get in first'. But this time its an aggressive 'thassit get me outta here' feeling.

I honestly don't know how the pre feb 09 applicants do it... i know i am not the norm for new applicants - the 20% that have not been processed within 8 months... i just wish wish wish they would say SOMETHING... I hate the fact that they tell you - allow us 4 months to reply - if you hear nothing write to us... 4 MONTHS... its DRAGGING!

Thank you for your quick response.The amount was 24thousand something (i forgot the exact amount in peso, i just called the credit card company and it is 550 in dollars) the date was April 21, 2010 in the name of Immigration Canada. Up to this date I haven't received any emails, I'm worried because i haven;t take notice of my span/junk box, is there any way I can check it if they had send me an email already.

Ah, ok. When you said 24k I was assuming you meant dollars and was thinking that you'd had your credit card details stolen!

If they took payment on 21st April then you would normally get the 120 day letter sometime after that, but it may not yet have arrived. Keep a close eye on your junk email folder, and maybe if it hasn't arrived in a couple of weeks contact them.

Good luck.
