Canada - Waiting To Hear
We applied to CIC London in October 2004, and have recently received a letter informing us of a delay in processing due to the large number of applications and that we may get to hear the result of the Initial Assessment by April 2007.
Therefore was wondering whether anybody could advise or has experience of the following:
1) How long after the Initial Assessment (if approved!) before you receive all the necessary permits and can make the move?
2) We believe (as does our Attorney) that we meet the passmark with 70 points and we also have sufficient funds. I have worked full time for the last 25+ years, the last 10 years in IT. My wife and I are thinking of taking a sabatical later this year to travel for 6 months (Including Canada for some time - visited twice before and have fond memories), does anybody know from experience whether this will affect the outcome of our assessment? I know we can ask our attorney but I would like to hear from people with personal experience.
3) Finally is anybody else in a similar position to us regarding the delay in processing, if so, would like to know how you keep yourself going, we were expectging to hear around now and to have a years delay is very depressing!
Thats all for now, thanks
