    Nothing major to update on my end. I received my GCMS notes recently and can see that an interview has been recommended but have heard nothing about it yet. Criminality was underway in the notes but I've since received 2 ghost updates so I think the first one was Crims passed because BGC...

    I got a ghost update on Monday. I know that eligibility had already passed and criminality was in process so I think maybe this indicates criminality passed. No emails or changes to GcKey as of yet. Anyone have insight on this? I was really hoping to see DM or RPRF request afterwards :-(...

    It's a complicated answer. Technically inland applicants must remain in canada. However, others have been ok to leave for short periods of time and return. The problem will occur when you return. Even with a valid TRV/visitor visa you are not GUARANTEED reentry. You can be denied for...

    I literally said I'd never heard of it so no one would consider me an authority on it, would they? You are just consistently a jerk to people on here and it makes the environment uncomfortable. It's unfortunate since this is a place we come to support one another during a stressful time. I'll...

    Some people might call it trying to help. But not all of us make it a hobby to hang out here and know everything...if in fact you do :)

    Never heard of the first option...don't think that's a thing lol. As I said, it's family/spousal sponsorship. You can apply either inland or outland regardless of where PA lives. There are benefits and drawbacks to each. Definitely odd you've never lived together in the same country. They...

    I'm not sure I understand the confusing part. I mentioned that It's family class sponsorship as a married couple. Is this not answering your question? Or am I missing something?

    Spousal sponsorship

    You're married so you apply for family sponsorship as a married couple. You can apply inland or outland even while in canada. Drawback to inland is PA has to remain in canada for the duration of the application processing and it tends to take longer. Not sure how they'll feel about you not...

    That's why I said, "can take 12 months." My point is, we are all waiting for these emails to know what's really going on. Every case is different. Being in GcKey and ecas isn't even helping because they don't always reflect everything that's going on with your app. Like, I know eligibility...

    It takes a couple of days. It's not something that gets approved. It's just done. It shows up as completed in GcKey. You're worrying too much. This can take 12 months and you rarely hear from them, rarely see an update in your account. They tell you to expect this all over their site...

    There is no biometrics place in canada. Inland applicants don't do biometrics. But you also aren't allowed to leave Canada so....going to Romania is dangerous for your app if you are. Unless you are the Sponsor or applied outland from canada???? Sponsors don't do biometrics...It's for the PA...

    Your husband is the one who should contact because he is the MP's constituent. You can google MP and the area he lives.

    Ours came about 1 month after AOR but everyone is different and things have slowed down lately.

    I should think the name needs to match what's on your passport.

    Definitely a little more slow than some but not crazy yet at least. I'm pretty confused about how it works. It's definitely the case that Indian and Philippine applications are getting through at lightning speed most OFTEN. Canadian citizens aren't getting any preferential treatment as...

    You are past the 1 year mark so you should definitely contact your MP. In your case, they can inquire but also apply a bit of pressure for agents to finish up. Some people say they can question officers as to why it hasn't been completed within the estimated time frame. Some people even say...

    I googled it, MP and the city I live in and emailed him. I waited until the 6 month mark thinking by then something would have happened and it would be worth the update. I wouldn't bother them before that, personally because it might be a waste of their time so early in the process but, that's...
