Re: Timeline - FSW application to CIO in Sydney, NS
 
Hello

Following on from the credit card charge last week, I have now got my 120 day email.:D
Time stamped, for posterity, 13.33 on 18th January 2010 on my email (which in my guess was pretty early morning for them).
My heart rate was up just a bit when reading & re-reading the email.

For info the email address that sent it was:
FSW-Centralized-Intake-Office <[email protected]

The email gave my reference number to quote in future correspondence (does this include ECAS eventually?) and a receipt nr for the credit card charge.

My application was under FSW1 i.e. work experience on the list of 38 occupations.

Just shy of 12 weeks by a day, but that did include Christmas & New Year.

They are still churning through them so here's hoping a swift response for those in November now & anyone still from the tail end of October.:fingerscrossed:

Hi Lins

do you mean after you receive 120day letter?

If so then yes you need to submit the photographs they asked for in the canadian sizes , got all ours done in a photo studio in Liverpool city centre.

All was fine till we had to get the baby to pose at 4 weeks old lol

I had to explain that one of my previous employers no longer existed!

Thanks for advise .....very valuable!!

Hi,

Yes photos are required at this stage plus a whole bunch of other stuff, you can find the list her:
http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/pdf/kits/guides/E37023.pdf
We are getting there slowly but surely! Due to have my second little girl in 2 weeks time - have to show passports for children so may have a photo of a 1 day old in hers so we can get this application off asap.... I can't bear all this waiting!
We made a mistake on our first application too, first applcation was sent in September but it seems also of people do it!

Many congratulations, its such a relief to receive the email! I was in the hairdressers when my husband called to tell me - I think I floated home!!! Then you realise how much paper work you have to submit :/ Hope all goes well.

Linsy

That is a very good question. I could not find the answer to this before I submitted my file so I contacted all my previous employers I could and obtained letters from them. While the 38 list NOC experience mentions the last 10 years, the request for references appears to be open-ended!

It is hard work, I know.

Cheers
