I had my review document status reading "July 26, 2022 We are reviewing the additional documents you provided." I have not heard anything since this time. And my AOR is 22nd March, 2020. Got married May 2021. My spouse was added 15th May, 2022 to my application. We are yet to get biometric request for spouse. We just even got upfront Medicals for spouse redone since the first one expired July, 2022.


This anxiety is disturbing
Hey! Were you gone for a while?
I recieved BIL for my spouse 6 months after my spouse was added to my portal. But the timeline is very very different for different applications. For some lucky people, it all happens within a month or two.

Hey, Just wanted to ask one thing. My wife's medical expired today. And earlier it was showing passed. Now it says you do not need a medical exam on the gckey account. Should I go for upfront medical or should wait for IRCC to request one? Also, my wife is currently on visitor visa and inside Canada

If she's already inside Canada, it is very likely that they extend her medicals at least once.

Thanks to all the members who kept hopes alive during the time of pandemic and many many months after that. I have been a silent lurker here. Reading your discussions have helped me through this.
Thanks to @ImpatientAlligator , @RSub , @LittleMaple , @legalfalcon, @dankboi, @ImpatientKangaroo for helping out whenever I had a query. There are many others. Sorry if I may have missed out a few names.

'ai un souci et j'aimerais avoir DZ l'aide s'il vous plaît fait une demande de visa touristes afin de prendre part a un furum. Mai a ce jour, la date du furum est dépassée et j'ai toujours pas encore obtenu mon visa. J'aimerais savoir malgré le faite que la date du furum soit dépassée est-il possible que je puice obtenir mon visa ? Pour rapel, la biométrie a déjà été faite
Pour savoir plus, demande vos notes gcms.
Je crois que non, parce que la date est déjà passé. Surtout si le conférence était la raison dans votre Statement of Purpose pour l'application.

Hi Naynah,

We are also in the same spot. Awaiting BIL since 5 months.
Just got BIL for my spouse today 21/9/2022. We have made an appointment for nxt week. Also got request letter requesting updated pcc for me and my husband.


Now guys especially @legalfalcon and @maghool71 please help urgently. I was never in my initial application asked to bring pcc for my time in the USA except pcc for my home country Nigeria but now request letter is asking for it(and I am definitely not in the USA) along with updated pcc for Nigeria, as well as for my spouse who lived and worked there (his USA and Nigeria pcc has expired this year) they want an updated one for him too. QUESTION: how do we get pcc for the USA since we are outside the USA?
Please help answer this urgently as we have little time to comply to this request
