Compliments of the season, quite excited by the latest post, will call HO on tuesday to find out what's up with my application. What a great way to start year 2011 if I get my PR this january after struggling with it for more than 2 yrs. I'm 100% positive this time.

Hi Mhasib, "final stage" means that a decision has been made,God knows if it's good or bad news. I'm in the same boat than you,so let's wait and see what happens.Good luck!

Hi dj25000....They(HO) ask us for do not call nor email them,in another words, for we do not bother them(lol) but after being in this forum,I decided to call them for the first time and the lady asked me when I applied and than she asked me the Ref Number and she told that mine it was in the last stage. Well, after a hell of months just waiting and wondering what is going on ,I got a little bit happy, I can not wait to have positive news and to have my passaport back ,of course with the PR on it.I would give a call.Good luck!

@ radi8 a big congratulations to u!!!!! So it took approximately 10days to get ur PR after been told its in final stage. That's not bad at all, will call HO today to get latest update on my case. Applied 04/08/10, received COA dated 24/08/10, called HO on 04/01/11 and was told still with a case worker. At least we are sure they are within the 6 mth rule.
