Thank you

GraciousWords:


You don't need to take your POF as cash. You can have it in an account, print the account statement the day before travelling in case you are asked to show POF evidence. If you do decide to carry physical cash above 10k, you must declare. See here

Allegory:

The status changed to medicals passed on my profile after the second ghost update. Did medicals on 23rd December, it got passed on 10th February. I think they always transmit everything whether or not they call to inform you. But you can always call them to keep your mind at rest

Thanks.
I called all the numbers on their website but they are all switched off.

Finally, What we waited for has come to pass, see what the Lord has done!!
It’s PPR!!.

Timeline:
IELTS : 1st attempt 15/12/18
ECA -7/2/19
AOR- Dec 6th 2019 ( 2 years and 4 months!!)
RPRF: April 2020.
Loooong wait. Called IRCC once in 2020 and I was told everything was passed, and the delay was due to covid.

Had my baby September 2021. Family of 4 became family of 5!
Successfully added baby to my profile Nov 2021.

Remed request :2nd December 2021.
Remed passed : 17th December 2021.
Silenceeeeeeee
Called IRCC in March 2022, d agent in her own words said “ the good news is that all parameters have been passed ,you only have to wait , it’s just a matter of time “
Webform raised 2nd March- got a response on 21st April
Another webform on 25th March- got a response on 25th April.
(The webform was just me asking for status of my application and why the long delay)

Decided to call IRCC today 27th April at 12 noon, was kept on hold for 47mins, no response.

At exactly 13:45pm, I refreshed my mail and saw the “golden mail”.
All I could do was just screammm!!

The feeling is surely good , I pray that everyone who has waited for this will surely receive their golden mail soonest!

Thanks to everyone on this thread , 90% of what I did throughout my application came from this thread. God bless you all for not getting weary in answering numerous questions.

His story in his words.........

I can't imagine if I didn't pass my Ielts that oct 2020. I prepared during the lockdown period and wrote the exam will full force during that depressing EndSars period. I passed on one sitting. It's just God if not I might have not been in d pool before Dec 23, which was the fsw last draw till date. I had no money to redo any test because no job that time, no salary- I studied hard and God did it.

How I got funds is another story. Infact plenty story for this journey. POF was 100% gift deed

I just look back and say Na mercy. I just know it's an ordained journey and I'm determined to make d best of my sojourn there, In essence, it is a total makeover, a new life beginning afresh and I trust God for a brighter future in Canada. Lookin forward to landing in May 2022.

I am a safety professional, any link or connection I will appreciate. "

I just tracked my passport on DHL and confirmed that it has been delivered to VFS Lagos. Will VFS Lagos send me an update or I won't hear anything again till it's time to pick up?

I wish there was a POST-PPR section on Page 1, so I can read step by step what happens after PPR.

Or is there a Whatsapp support group for Post PPR that I can join?

Congratulations! Please can you share some information on how you sent your passport to Germany?

Someone in Germany paid directly for him 23.30 euros.
They want payment in euros only if sending by mail

By Mail - You'll have to pay fees through bank transfer payable to 'VFS Services Germany GmbH' and in EUROS only.

He then took his passport, receipt of payment, consent form and copy of PPR mail to DHL.

In all History of recent PPR timelines i have been seeing here people are getting their biometric done the following day.

Is there something I need to know about this Biometric Scheduling ?

Can I go there with some stories and gate crash. Has that worked for anyone ?

Or just keep waiting for my appointment day which is weeks away ?

Montreal don shake body small. Finally received BIL for my spouse. Even after notifying IRCC and uploading my medical slip, I also received a medical request, whereas I had done an upfront medical about 3 months ago. What do you guys advice? Should I keep notifying them of my upfront medical or I should go ahead and do another medicals?.

Pls see FAQ 14 on page 1.

1 year 8 months + 1 year 4 months = 3 years

You are ok, so long as you have at least one WE that is 1 year continuous minimum and all your WE meet the IRCC requirements of pay, hours, NOC etc.

The 3 years do not have to be continuous in the same NOC or same employer. Pls page 1.
