    Hi David
    i have applied for FSW as per the previous job list from Bangladesh and my required document reached to CIC on 28 June 2012. Still i didn’t receive any file number. Do you think the immigration authority will consider my file as they stopped this process from 1 July 2012 or i have to apply again after 4 May?
    Waiting for your reply.
    Kind regards
