Letter from ICA - Covid 19 Impact

Post by indiapore » Thu, 14 May 2020 7:56 pm

A few people have been asking about Covid impact on PR processing time so thought will share that I received a letter from ICA today to highlight there will be delays and to keep patience (mine is pending since Sep 2019). So let’s all keep calm and hope for the best!

Thanks for that indiapore! This is how we get our data. From each and every one of you and your interactions with ICA and MOM. You all are our database. Keep us informed how you get on. I'm making a sticky of it for 30 days so it stay at the top of the recent posts for a while.

i also received this letter. It says that the processing time will take longer during Covid 19 situtation than the normal average 4-6 months. It is a system-generated letter without signature and date.

So, considering they say there average is 4 to 6 months but anecdotally speaking it seems like 6 to 18 months it's anybody's guess. Covid isn't going anywhere for the next 6 months for sure and I wondering how badly it is going to impact adding to the PR roles here considering unemployment and business that are going to fail. Keep your fingers crossed, folks.

I had applied for my wife PR and after 10 months received the same letter last week...Obviously as earlier stated it's computer generated and as most of the time things remain behind the curtain no outcome date ...it only state is delayed due to COVID19 ...everything seems jamed because of COVID19...

Hi All,

I applied in Nov 2019 and i have not received such letter. What does that mean? should i worry about it?
It only means that your application is still within the normally expected processing duration, hence no need to send you a letter.
You can always choose to be worried about it only if it helps you personally. Either way there is no way of predicting anything with ICA apart from anecdotal research, of which you can find plenty on this forum.
