Wow, 11 years and no PR even after 4 applications? That's pretty surprising to me actually. I hope it goes better for you this time around, but you know... with the economy being what it is thanks to COVID-19, I imagine it's not the best time to apply. I hope I'm wrong though.

may go either way, 50-50. Looks salary is slightly on the lower side.

oh that's better than what i thought ... i was thinking it could be very slim chance around 10% - 20% (on the basis that i am not married). now it is more than 8 months already .. wondering if ICA has stopped all PR assessment during Covid 19 period...

i received a letter from ICA.

It tells me that the processing time will take longer during Covid 19 situtation than the normal average 4-6 months. It is system-generated letter without signature.
