Pinoy care visa centerRegister Today!
- by boardshorts Sep 19, '09hey guys! has anyone hear of PINOYCARE VISA CENTER? or who applied their services? I recently attended their orientation seminar here in davao city and they said that the CIC would shell out immigrant visas for nurses for as early as 9 months, is this true?
- If you meet requirements regardless on going through an agency and the job is in the occupation shortage list then yes CIC will process work/immigrant visa quicker. You still have to meet requirements and have a medical
- Quote from Silverdragon102oh thank you for the reply silverdragon! I highly appreciate it! This certain consultancy firm told us that the CIC process is meticulous, passing the right documents is key to avoid delay, so we need the firm's expertise so everything would be smooth sailing. They also said that the point system does not apply anymore as long as your included in the TOP 38 professions then you're good to go, do you have any knowledge about this? I took the point system assessment at the CIC website and I did not pass. Will the CIC process the applicants with 3-5 years experience first and grant them immigrant visa faster than those with only let's say almost 2 years experience and single like me? I'm still contemplating wether to apply for immigrant visa or take the PNP route, I wanna take the faster route, can you shed light on my concerns? I know this is a lot heheheIf you meet requirements regardless on going through an agency and the job is in the occupation shortage list then yes CIC will process work/immigrant visa quicker.

- Quote from Silverdragon102Thank you for the reply. I am thinking applying in BC or Nova scotia, I wanna be near water. hehe. Can you say the demand for nurses is still high in canada? esp. in BC or NV?It is not necessary to use a agency. The paperwork is easy to complete and there are clear instructions on the CIC website. I suggest a good read on the CIC website
- NS you will certainly be near or within an hour or so of water (I live about 10 mins from water) however I can't say how high the demand is for foreign trained nurses. I do know that nurses and doctors are in demand here but how long that will last I am not sure. Can't comment for BC
- Thank for your time silverdragon!
- Nov 26, '09 by jay_jhi, i am currently in process of getting an immigrant visa thru PinoyCare. i am sure you've (silverdragon) heard of this. i am quite frustrated already with how long they're taking. it's going to be 6 months already since i applied for their service but they haven't even done their job.
anyway, i was just wondering since boardshorts mentioned the whole irrelevance of the point system as long as you belong to the top 38 professions they are looking for, if i have to retake my IELTS exam. i took the exam last 2007 and so it'll expire next year. i didn't get lower than 7.0 in my speaking, listening and reading, but i got a 6.0 in my writing i've heard that they would require at least 6.5 score in each area. i'm not really sure about that though. i'm still contemplating if i have to retake the exam or not?
- Nov 30, '09 by ziggyldyHi janel! did you mean to say that its been 6 months since you passed your application to them? all those documents required in the kit? I recently attended their orientation and it's pretty attractive. I'm still undecided whether to take their service or not. thanks!
- Dec 1, '09 by jay_jyup, i paid for their service in full last June 2009. Up to now, they still haven't finished working on my papers which they were supposed to be done with 5 months ago. They said in d orientation that the encoding would only take a month at most and then we would do the 1 yr or less countdown for the visa itself na. However that's not what happened. I'm not really sure what happened, but their excuse was that they moved to a new address that's y it got delayed and my analyst resigned (without informing me),so the work was on hold without no one to immediately replace him while he was on d process of taking care of his moving out of the country (to canada). I had to be direct with their head of documentation and she admitted that they are presently trying to catch up with all the work and there's been a delay coz they are proiritizing those who are about to be deployed. Thus, leaving other applicants in a very long line of waiting... MONTHS of waiting! I was very disappointed with their service and lack of communication. I had to call the office just to get a response from them (especially from my previous analyst).
I am still hoping they would get to finish it before the year ends.. but I doubt they'll be able to do that. So, hopefully there would be a progress in January coz it's over half a year already. Definitely not something I imagined when i signed up with them.
Their service offer is good... but how long it takes them to get the job done (which is only encoding your documents for the embassy) is so not worth the cash you'll pay them, especially if you can do it yourself (ex: you live in manila, wherein you have the privilege/convenience to go to the embassy yourself anytime). If you have someone who has an idea with the immigrant application, it's better to ask assistance from them. A lot of people has done it themselves and it would take you faster to get your visa (as long as you do it all right) rather than hire and pay other ppl to do it and it would take forever.
But, if you're in no hurry to leave the country, and you'd rather have someone else take care of the whole process, i guess it wouldn't hurt to hire them. It's only frustrating for me coz I expected i would be leaving in a year at most.. NOT TWO, because of the time frame they gave with their service during the orientation. Oh well...
