Postby SmartDude » Mon, 07 Sep 2009 4:47 pm

Friends,
The PR application outcome is usually in 3months time but now its taking more than 3months time is it good sign or bad sign for the outcome of PR result ? Already 3months have passed still no result and still under processing ? This long time is good or bad for the PR ?

There's been a rush of people applying for PR lately, and processing times are longer than usual. Nothing you can do except wait...

A Smart Dude would use the search function in this forum first and look for recent posts regarding the processing time first. :wink:

I applied early August and I was told then that processing time would be 3-6 months. Looks like you applied a bit earlier, but not much more, so I think no big difference in processing time.

So guess you can just wait, or make a call to ICA
