Canada immigration time from Pakistan

Pakistanis has a lot of concern about canadian immigration time from Pakistan. Normally, for the applicants who applied before 27 Feb 2008, their immigration cases are finalizing in 45 to 60 months. The applicants who applied under the new criteria of immigration with the specific skills in one of the 38 required occupations, their immigration case processing time lies between 12 to 22 months.
But after the visit of Canadian immigration minister to Pakistan, Canada recognized this long waiting time for Pakistanis and decided to reduce the long immigration time. In January 2009, Canadian Visa office in Pakistan issued letters to all future immigrants who applied before febuary 2008. The letter was issued for the consent of applicants whether they are still willing to immigrate or not. This procedure removed the backlog of Canadian Immigration applicants from CHC Islamabad.
From 01 April 2010, all files of Canadian Immigration Applicants from CHC Islamabad has been transferred to CHC London in order to expedite the immigration process and time.

I applied in June 2006 and I received the above mentioned letter seeking interest for immigration back in April 2009. It has been mentioned in the above post that by issuing the letters in January 2009, the backlog has been removed. Could anyone be kind enough to explain this, since as of today CHC Islamabad is processing cases of 2004.

I have applied in Jan 2005 and still case in not in active processing. On my several emails for checking the status atlast got to know that all cases has been transferred to London.

QUOTE:

As of April 1, 2010, applications for permanent residence under the Economic categories for citizens or residents of Pakistan will be processed by our office in London, UK. The economic categories are comprised of Federal skilled Workers, Federal Investors, Self-Employed, Entrepreneurs, Provincial Nominees and Quebec-selected Permanent Workers and Business People. Although Islamabad will continue processing a few applications that are close to completion, the majority are being transferred to London. The file transfer of existing permanent residence applications under the Economic categories is currently underway.

We, the Islamabad Office, are not updating your file or adding any information to your file in response to your email.

However, the information below may be useful to you:

If you have received instructions from our office in Islamabad to submit documents, please submit the documents to our mission in Islamabad as instructed.

If you have received instructions from CIO Sydney to submit your application package, please submit these documents to our mission in London. If you have already submitted your application package to Islamabad, then Islamabad will automatically forward this on to London.

If you are enquiring if your application has been transferred and will be processed in London, please be advised that the London Office will contact you when they are in a position to begin processing your application. We regret that neither our office nor London office is able to provide status updates at this time. You may wish to resend your enquiry after November 2010 to the London Office.

At this point, it is too early to tell what the new processing times will be for these cases in London.

We thank you for your patience during this transition period and for keeping your correspondence to a minimum.

Salam Guyz ,
I applied for the immigration in october 2004 and in november 2010 they asked me if em still interested and to submit the IMM008 and other forms and required documents .
There hasn't been the slightest change in my Status at the official cic.gc.ca and I haven't received any mail or call from London (Where my case is currently being Processed).They say that the application processing time is about 7 years +- 2 months and for me the times gonna end in January ...
What I am seriosly afraid of is any one been updated >?

dear comrade

i applied under fsw in Aug 2009. my app was shifted to uk in july 2010. i am a doctor by profession. how long do u think it will take for any response on my application ??

Anonymous said...

2012 will bring approval or withdrawal of all backlog applications. because canada entered 280000 immigrants in 2010. So it is likely to come in 2010

Fahim said...

Thanks comrade.

Comrade said...

yeah its 2012

Comrade said...

You are welcome Fahim

Dear Comrade,
I applied for Canada Immigration under Skilled Worker Program in August 2006, and they received on 28th August 2006. Then I saw my online status confirming that my file is shifted to London. Please give me idea that how long will it take to finalize my case.
Thank you,

Comrade said...

Dear Nawaid,
As per canada immigration plan of 2012, approx 47000 backlogh applicants will be cleared in 2012. So it is most likely that you will get your immigration this year

I have recieved my letter of sending my passports and pictures to the canadian high comission islamabad by feb 22 of 2012. My medical expires on the 26th of march. Is it possible that i can go there alone before 26th march and my rest of the members join in later.

is it compulsory for them to come along and spend 1000 days our of 4 years or is it compulsory only for the principal applicant to spent 1000 days.

Dear All, we are flushed out as Government of Canada announced of eliminating backlog applications. Applicants who applied before 27 Feb 2008 will receive their full payment along with application. Canada wasted our 5 to 8 years in waiting and now they are returning our files.

File befor 27th 2008 is refused. Please lodge your petition through liberal legislator in Canada just click http://jimkarygiannis.net/petition_and_action_requests/immigration_backlog

For the time being the Canadian immigration is freezed.
There is too much uncertainty. Wait and see.
