Как упоминал ранее, на email пришло простое письмо, в котором говориться, что процесс почти завершен и для полного счастья не хватает виз, которые они с радостью нам вклеят, если мы подвезем им паспорта (перевод мой, с хорошего настроя). Возможно, то что приходит по почте имеет название, но у нашего письма нет наименования. Тем не менее, я считаю, что это и есть наш долгожданный POVL.
А вообще, такое письмо называется POV — Promise of Visa Letter, так указано на сайте канадского посольства в Москве. Поскольку на сайте посольства в Варшаве я не нашел упоминания про ПОВЛ, то предположу, что это чисто московская фишка.
В письме просят подвезти оплату, данные на детей (рост и цвет глаз) и паспорта. Также указываются критические сроки подачи паспортов, въезда в Канаду и пр. полезные данные.
Кстати, оплата производится не за визы, как это принято думать и говорить, а за Right of Permenent Residence. И это единственная оплата, которая может быть возвращена в случае отказа.
Также предполагаю, что текст письма меняется в зависимости от консульства и места проживания аппликанта.
Текст письмеца привожу ниже:
