Well Claire n tel,
I think you just read my last sentence and came to a conclusion.You misunderstood my post.I was talking in general about some pple those who haven't got PR yet applied since Jan 2013!!!! I was replying for them.Is it not annoying to wait for some security reason coz they r from certain country?
When overseas their security is cleared quickly and then y here its taking ages,they haven't been overseas after coming here and their PCC is clear from their country and here AFP is clear so y the long wait in name of security check.I can understand how annoying it can be.I was not talking about my case at all in this regard as it has been only 2 weeks since I applied!!!!So making easy was for them!!!In the past it was given in 3 days ,so wasn't that easy!!!as i mentioned in my previous post everything is linked.I hav every good example for this.An aussie person travelling in a different country was picked up at airport for not carrying cash to show how he is gonna survive.He showed his credit an debit cards.The airport people just by entering his name on a secured system told him everything about his account and job etc etc that he was surprised at their system.I had met a person who knows someone in immigration and shared with him couple of months ago how immigration works and said the same thing (about the system of the previous example) about how its linked and really they have everything but want us to provide to convince them that we are genuine residents with good intentions to stay back here and it really depends on the CO and his mood to get satisfied in few or more documents ,just like our teachers in school would give different marks to us for writing same essay like our friends...lol From this post only there are lot of examples for similar situation applicants being treated differently. I hope I have clarified most of things for everyone
Regarding forms, in both forms information is repeated and I also have 2 extra pages for most of the questions.I wasn't aware about this forum till 2 days before I applied and didn't know that forms could be uploaded later.My friends that i know did paper application.So for a person like me who didn't have information had to fill the form day and night to upload it all together,though the list of documents doesn't ask for it ....If you have read previous posts of pple,they are asking for resumes which is new now.How can a person imagine that resume will be asked ,doesn't both form information make up for a resume???
I wish i had searched in google and got this website before to understand this PR process better.Calling immigration 13....number was waste of time every time holding for 1.5 hrs at least to speak. This forum is much more informative with pple sharing their experiences and that's making others alert to do that thing in advance and saving time and getting direct PR without further documents hassle !!!!!
Thanks to the admin and all members of grp for this form.Keep informing and sharing.It can help someone really in need!!!
I hope you all agree(not misunderstand) with me what I wanted to say and above all are my views and solely my expereince and understanding to this system,Forum and PR!!!I am not criticising any process or any person.Just my thoughts....I wish everyone should get PR very soon those who are waiting since long.All d best guys!!!
we are in the same boat. we could not applied online so we were asked to apply paper application. our friends who applied after us got their PR before us
we even could not check status of our application whether CO is alloted or not.all this is very annoying..
