Dreaming for a better quality of life? Decide now and make a commitment to that decision!



It was September 2008 when Mr. Bernie Bantugan decided to start his Federal Skilled Worker immigrant visa application by signing a consultancy agreement with Canadian Immigration Consultancy. He decided to file his application despite the fact that he was told that the process may take about 3-5 years. He bought the idea that if you want to have a better quality of life for your family 5 years from now, you have to start your plan NOW and not five years after. His application was filed under the Simplified Application Process on November 13, 2008.

A couple of weeks after filing his application, the Ministerial Instructions identifying the list of 38 High Demand Occupations was released. Mr. Bantugan is a Staff Nurse (Registered Nurse) and his occupation is included in the list. Imagine his surprise when he receive a letter from Canadian Visa Office - Manila, requiring him to submit updated application forms and supporting documents on January 2009. We told him that such notice is expected 3-5 years after filing his application.

It took him about four months to comply with the requirements including the IELTS Exam Results. We submitted his application forms and supporting documents May 2009.

The 6-12 months processing under the new regulations starts at the time of submission of supporting documents to Canadian Visa Office. In his case, it only took a couple of months to receive the result. On July 2009, he received another letter requiring him to pay the Right of Permanent Resident Fee and to undergo medical examination.

August 2009, he received the Visa Notice, a letter requiring him to submit the original passports of all his family members.

And just a couple of days ago, he was in the Canadian Immigration Consultancy office again to pick up his visa. His visa was sent to us by Canadian Visa Office Manila on Sept 5, 2009.
