So you are saying na mas ok ang GCMS than CAIPS? E dun sa box na Receive copies of the Records di ba paper form yun na ipapadala sa iyo? Pwede mo rin ba yun maaccess anytime sa online like ecas? or if paperbase nga send nila ano yun one time lang sila magsend ng info? After send mo application gano katagal ang wait mo? Sorry lots of questions. I tried to call them pero leave lng daw ng phone number then sila magcacallback. Thanks!
I will just answer you here for the sake of those who are also planning to order GCMS. I think tumatagal talaga pag nasa background/security check. Maaaring may hinihintay pa silang information from other agency to finalize the security check.. pero who knows. In our case, simula nung na received ng CEM yung application namin nung April 11 up to now... also 5 months na din.. di pa rin gumagalaw (application and medical results received lang sa ECAS) kaya nag request na kami ng GCMS. base sa documents na na received namin... for closer review pa yung application namin.. sa assessment summary yung medical pa lang ang complete.. The rest,, yung Eligibility, Security, HIRV,Criminality, Org. Crime, Misrepresentation are ALL NOT STARTED meaning di pa sinisimulan... Makikita mo lahat sa GCMS lahat ng isinulat at assessment ng VO... from day 1 na natanggap nila yung application to the latest status.
pati nga yung pag inquire or follow-up sa CEM naka log din sa application... (kung nag follow-up kayo) In your case, I suggest mag order ka na ng GCMS... since latest document na napasa nyo is yung police clearance... most likely sa security check tumatagal yung application..... pero we are not sure unless makita mo yung GCMS notes ng application nyo. Mas mura kung sa Canada ka mag order ng GCMS.. nasa 5$ CAD lang. Kailangan mong fill-upan at ipasa mga ito.
