Re: Canada Spouse Open Work Permit (sowp)timeline by Ruth222: 5:59am On Nov 30, 2016
yes it's for real oo! 26 weeks . I just hope it doesn't affect those that already have their applications in e.g April,May , June and July . I guess we just have to add the extra weeks to how long we have waited already. I am already in the 19th - 20th week. I know of someone that did her biometrics may (work permit) and just got her trv approved 11th of November . Or what do you guys think

Re: Canada Spouse Open Work Permit (sowp)timeline by Edoblakky(m): 6:43am On Nov 30, 2016
I still don't understand CIC. I applied for my wife in January this year. Because there was delay and she was expectant, she went to the US to have our baby. She was invited to submit her passport the very day she gave birth in the US. We missed the 30 day window and we came back to Nigeria where we were advised to reapply. We've reapplied since second week in June with upfront medical and done biometrics same period. I am shocked that almost 6 months and no response. Even while in the US, we tried calling and sending emails but they are too lazy to respond. I think I'll have to call the Calgary representative in the parliament 2moro.
Re: Canada Spouse Open Work Permit (sowp)timeline by Ruth222: 7:29am On Nov 30, 2016
I guess you just have to be patient. I almost withdrew my application after waiting for several months until I came accross this page and noticed people that applied before me are still waiting. Since you did upfront Medicals , ur passport request mail is almost here. Just be a lil patient. Like I said, I know of a friend that did biometrics may (work permit) and she got her trv this November.

I guess they are working on April/ may applicants. June and July next by Gods grace. For April/may applicants that have been called for Medicals pls let us know when passport request mail comes in. We shall all hear good news in Jesus name.
Re: Canada Spouse Open Work Permit (sowp)timeline by Principessa0: 8:19am On Nov 30, 2016
I have received Passport Request on Monday. I have also submitted.
LMIA-Exempt Work Permit Application submitted online in April 2016, Medical call in October. Passport Request in November. I hope this can help everyone figure out how long to wait.
I think the CIC are really flooded with applications. They are working really hard. Patience is the way to go. Just be patient. Thank you all and I wish you goodluck.
Re: Canada Spouse Open Work Permit (sowp)timeline by Ruth222: 9:06am On Nov 30, 2016

Ruth222, you're doing a great job. I am patiently waiting for CIC to approve my wife's visa so that she and the children can come live with me.

@nifeicon

Gymme is right, your case is similar to mine. My spouse applied for SOWP in August and was only called for biometrics. We did not know the process was going to take this long. In order to rectify the situation, even though my course was supposed to finish in December, i finished early this month( I had met my completion requirements) and had to quickly apply for a work permit( with letter from my school that I had completed my course requirements, was eligible to graduate etc etc. I also included a job offer since I had an offer already). I am yet to receive my work permit and I honestly do not know what the implication of this will be on my spouse's application but I am hoping they will review my file when they review my spouse's and verify that even though I am done with school, my spouse is still eligible since I have applied for PGWP, that too with a job offer. We could not include this info in my spouse's application in August because I was still in school then and could not graduate.

All the best!



@jpepper & @Gymme , Thank you for your response. God bless you all.

Thanks eridemilade!
I've been living without my family for over a year now. My son keeps asking me on video call when I'm coming home. My daughter said they should turn off the video the last time I called. And I won't be spending the holidays with them for the first time. CIC should do the needful so that we can be together.

I pray for my case and that of others - there shall be a speedy answer before 2016 wounds up.
