Your E-cas says MEDICAL RESULTS HAVE BEEN RECEIVED. It usually means that you have passed your medical examination.
Background checks are done pre-meds. If they have requested updated Schedule 1, no need to worry. Many VOs do that. It helps them to transmit some information from the updated form to responsible agencies, say CSIS, to conduct security checks in an efficient manner. It helps them to get a speedy security clearance. Background Checks and Security Checks are different in the procedural way, but inter-related to one another, in many different ways.
What happens in the security screening process ? No one knows that. Except CSIS. They will not tell you, they will also not inform the VO of their operational procedures. The VO only gets the results - in YES or NO.
What I do know is that CSIS does not fail applicants for immigration purposes unless there is a serious reason to do so. More than 99 percent of applicants pass this stage without any hassles.
NO ONE CAN ANSWER WHAT IS DONE IN SECURITY CHECKS THAT ARE CONDUCTED BY CSIS. CSIS CHECKS ARE INTELLIGENCE RELATED AND CLASSIFIED.
Act on their request. Do NOT worry unless the VO gives you a reason to do so.
A little while to go, and you will probably on your way to getting a maple leaf label in your passport.
I hope you can enlighten us about the condition of our PR application. Its been more than 6 months now since we filed the PR back in February and we have not received any feedback from Visa office since. We filed our application under Family Class common-law-relationship. Our application packaged was forwarded to Manila Visa office. We have submitted additional documents (passport, appendix A and personal history background since 18yo) last Apri 2011 and they have acknowledge the RPRF payment last July 5. We ordered a GCMS notes (extracted Aug18) and found out below case notes by VO.
Assessment summary are ALL NOT STARTED except the Medical. Im not sure if the background and security check has been started. Or they started it but somehow waiting for security clearance from other agency. Ecas only shows Application and Medical results received.
Im also concerned on the last update by the VO that states FC - PRI - 3c - Issue for Closer Review
.. I dont know what this means.
Appreciate your help.. Thanks!
