Hello

Following on from the credit card charge last week, I have now got my 120 day email.
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.

I reckon another month, judging by your time line. Our form was received 25th November, yours was 27th October. Ah well, it'll happen when it happens.

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

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.

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.
