Feb 2016 applicant through Ottawa

Hello, I have been an observer of this post and feel its my time to share my processing timeline. I am an Australian and Canadian citizen. Raised in Aus, moved to Canada in 2008 and ended up staying/ getting PR and eventually Canadian citizenship. Married a Canadian in 2015, had been living together with tied finances since 2012.

My question is, do you think there is a possibility to get the 100 visa granted right off the bat?

I see there are a few people with similar timelines, with applications submitted in Ottawa. My timeline is as follows:

Application date: Feb 22nd 2016
Police clearances: end of March 2016
Medicals:end of March 2016
Now we wait patiently....

This group has been quiet for a while so I reactivate it ;-)

Applied for PMV on September 26, 2016 through a migration agent. I will apply for my German and Canadian police check at the end of this month so I can upload them in December. My agent told me to wait with police checks and medicals until requested by the CO but I hope that uploading them earlier will speed up the process at least a tiny bit (I will also be on a 4 week vacation in January).

I saw a few high risk countries getting approved by Ottawa within 5.5 and 7.5 months last month so I hope that I won't have to wait too long either. I'm totally prepared to wait 12 months though ;-)

Good luck to everyone going through Ottawa

Hi!

Yes there is a GOD!!! hahaha

My fiance is from El Salvador (High Risk country) and we applied for our PMV on 19 March 2016 and the visa was granted on 4th November 2016!! 7 months, 2 weeks and 2 days!!!!!!!!!!! He got phone interviewed 2 weeks prior to the approval!

I cannot believe it! Im still in shock! I thought we had a complicated case because im 9 years older than him AND we are first cousins! AND he had a student and tourist visa refused!

But every 2-3 months I would update evidence of our relationship. I went with a Migration agent.

Im not going to lie, those 7 months 2 weeks and 2 days was the longest, excruciating time in my life!!!!!!!!!!

He now has to enter Australia before 22nd January 2017 however I booked a trip to go visit him and I depart in 2 weeks and I was meant to return back to Australia on 26th Jan. Now that the visa is granted and must enter before 22nd of Jan, I now have to change my return airfare, apply for my fiance to get a transit visa via USA, get the same return flight as me!

But I dont care, the main thing is the visa is granted and now concentrate on our lives together!!! Sorrrrry to blab on but im just soooooooo happy my dream has come true!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAYYYY!!!!

Just an update for anyone who has recently applied for the partner 309 visa from the Ottawa office.

We submitted our application 30th August 2016, and received a request for more information (medical and police checks) on Monday - 2.5 months after we applied!

I've spoken to the office a few times as well, and they have been saying that they're trying to clear the backlog - so hopefully that means quicker processing times for everyone!

We're still waiting for a RCMP Criminal Record check with no idea when that will come through (we applied end of August for that too, and because my partner has fingerprints on file for a dismissed DUI, it means it can take up to 120 business days to receive back )).

We've uploaded the proof that we've applied for it, as well as the AFP police check which we did yesterday (which by the way, we received an email saying they had processed it the same day we applied online - yay for Australia). Medicals are booked in for early December now.

We had planned on getting the police checks and medicals organized to be uploaded in December anyway, but my jaw dropped when we received the email from our case officer asking for it - 2.5 months seems crazy early to already be looking at our case (mind you, we are definitely not complaining!!). Now fingers crossed the RCMP check comes back soon, and we will be all set to have all the requested info uploaded in the next month!!

That's awesome.

We applied a month after you and I'll get my police checks ready before I go on my 1 month vacation on Christmas

Got a request from the embassy in Ottawa today for

- medical exam
- German and Canadian police certificate
- Form 80
- NOIM (already submitted)

Time to submit documents: only 14 days! Some of my documents will take about 4 weeks.

I can't believe they already contacted me

I panicked about the 14 days too, as I remembered people always saying they had 28 days. So I called the embassy the next day & they said that so long as you submit proof you've applied for things, booked medical appointments within 14 days, that's fine - they know these things take longer. They're just asking for people to get organized quicker now than before as they're trying to push applications through quicker. Hope this helps!!

I'm in shock lol. I didn't expect any requests for like 6 months. It hasn't even been 2 yet ;-) I applied for the German (I need to get this one translated once I receive it) and Canadian police certificate and will book the medical tomorrow....

The place we booked the medical at we asked for an appointment confirmation that we could scan and upload as proof, as the earliest appointment we could get was in a month. So once we had that, we scanned and uploaded to our immi account, as well as the application paperwork for both police checks. We also emailed as well, just to be safe! I've now received the Australian police check and uploaded, so at least that's out of the way.

I am so nervous about the RCMP check, as it's been 3 months since we applied, and I know how long it can take (6 months!!). I was so hoping they wouldn't ask for more information before it arrived And now I am hoping they will understand that it may not be here for at least a month or two Every time I have spoken to the embassy, they have been really helpful and understanding, so I am crossing my fingers that we will be okay and the RCMP check arrives before they start telling us they will make a decision without it like @Peepslewry...
