follow ups are not encouraged, i heard kapag nag follow up lalo nilang tinatagalan. i dont think they're changing rules to improve turn around time or to qualify who they need most, my husband's skill scored very high when we did the "qualifying test". his profession, education and family all living in canada were big factors. a friend of mine who used to work at the embassy said, [textspeak!] mga nag apply ng 2008 below are processed here in the phils. kaya sobrang tagal, while those who applied 2008 above are processed in novascasia, canada kaya mabilis na.
if we cancel and re apply, sayang [textspeak!] processing fee we paid, medyo malaki kasi buong family kami nag apply, di na ma re refund.
i just hope na sana malaman na namin [textspeak!] decision, whether approve or disapprove. para wala na kaming mapalagpas na opportunity because we need to consider our canadian visa application.
