Immigration timelines is a tool that provides access to relevant information about immigration process from others would-be immigrants.

During my immigration process, I always followed the progress of other immigrants. When two people start the process/event at the same period of time, they tend to receive returns at the same time. Of course there are other factors that come into play here, there are so many variables it is very difficult to predict.

To track people's immigration processes, I used to read the blogs of those I knew and topics in an Orkut community. I also used a previous version of timelines system (not created by me and not available anymore) and I followed spreadsheets which were created by a group of immigrants. But keep following all this spread information was difficult.

Trying to simplify the way to gather all this information, I decided to put it all together in a single system. I also added some features to try and make the system more interesting and useful. I hope you like it because it was made with the best of intentions: to help other immigrants in this important moment of many changes and uncertainty.
