My address is disappeared. I am a March 2011 applicant. Is it regular? or there is any meaning?
Hey Pantha, I don't know about your current ecas status so I'm going to speak a little generally and from some personal and other people's experience. If you are in Received By Visa Office Stage
: As you are March 2011 applicant, you are supposed to be in this stage by now. You can expect to be in this stage anywhere between 3-8 months. I myself am a Feb 2011 applicant and am in this stage. A month ago even my address disappeared and then reappeared without any status update. However, there are people who applied around our time and are in In Process stage since July 2011. So, not to worry. I think, if your case is pretty straight forward (no confusing details) and background checks are smooth, you probably will get In Process stage. During this stage if you sent some papers to SVO like address change or added newborn child etc. then in this case address disappearance is for file update.If you are in In Process Stage
: If in this stage and address disappeared well in that case, you can expect MR soon. They'll ask for Medical, Personal Networth Statement, 12 months bank statement, Police clearance certificates (if you hadn't provided it earlier). I am seeing a lot of applicants in this forum are getting MR & PPR. So, you can say that's the direction of wind these days! But, During this stage if you sent some papers to SVO like address change or added newborn child etc. then in this case address disappearance is for file update.
Address disappearance in general is vague. It's not guaranteed that you will move on to next stage. However, if you combine Address disappearance and waiting period, it usually indicates good news. So, if you have waited for quite some time in RBVO or In Process stage and address is disappeared now, well then you can expect some good news. So don't lose patience or get anxious. InshAllah everything will turn out fine.
PS: Pre June 2010 applicants have waited for years in RBVO and In Process stage alone. I think we can understand how painful it must be for them.
