I dont think there is a pattern apart from the fact a high percentage get the approvals back within 6 months.fev wrote:I apologise if these patterns were discussed previously but it would be great if you can describe what you noticed about HO decision making process in more details.

I can't get rid of the feeling that it's simply luck when an application is going to be processed (providing it is straight-forward). It also appears that HO process Spouse of BC slower than Work Permits and Tiers
I did notice that the people who get the approvals back in short times, that its around 4 weeks from when they take the fee give and take a few days, but even that ain't consistent.
I'm also like you, I'm looking for a pattern but the truth is the only pattern that I see is we all dont know what the HO does.
I get the impression that the just put the forms all over the place and the just pick up the one closest to them LOL...
