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.
