Hi @Naynah We did US FBI check for my spouse from outside the USA too, we did it in Canada and the process was very easy and quick. Just do the biometrics in an approved center and I think they send them directly to the FBI. Don't worry at all.

It's been a while dear! Have you heard anything from IRCC since Biometrics? What stage are you at now

Hey Baryonix!

When we initially provided them the initial batch of marriage documents, we provided them with the marriage certificate, photos together and from wedding and honeymoon, flight tickets and hotel bookings from honeymoon, guest lists etc.

As per their ADR request they were more interested in proof of marriage and relationship (post-marriage) and they wanted us to additionally provide a Letter of Explanation along with sufficient evidence to explain our current living situation.

We provided evidence with relation to the primary reason of our current situation being due to our current work obligations and commitments in two different countries. With that being said, we provided evidence of our current employment conditions along with additional relationship evidence as listed below:
  1. Employment permits and visa status
  2. Family visa obtained in my home country for my spouse
  3. Whatsapp Chats
  4. Call logs
  5. Any expenses shared or transfers made between accounts
  6. Honeymoon photos and hotel bookings, flight details, passport stamps, bank statements with proof of expenses etc
  7. Photos of any trips made to visit each other post-marriage along with flight information and again any expenses shared and passport stamps
  8. Screenshots of family video calls
  9. Any screenshots of gifts sent to each other with relevant supports like chat logs, pictures, bank statements.
You could provide any additional evidence you see fit, depending on your current situation. Like joint bills, rentals, bank accounts shared if any. etc.

It was a long and detailed explanation and we hope it will be sufficient. :D
Call logsss..? I didn't do that but I did like an album collage of pictures and tagged each collage of when my hubby and I met, times we hung out(one pdf page having about 5-10 pictures) , a 2nd page of civil registry wedding (probably had like 5-8 pictures), then a 3rd page for trad marriage rites performed (maybe about three collages pictures), another page showing pictures of the trad ceremonywith patents guests activities(about y pictures in on that page) , another page for the church wedding (about 10 p ictures on that page), reception pictiores another page, after marriage hangouts and ceremonies another page..... Tied each pictorial evidence in my questionnaire explanation and referenced the picture documents. Each picture was tagged with a little explanation of the activity and they were dated chronologically.

Sent certificate of marriage and all other requested documents.


I feel call logs and chats are a bit intrusive(well I would have done that if requested for though).

That's the only way to beat their limit without them asking again for proof... I told myself how do I only submit 15 pictures or pages of evidence of marriage... This won't satisfy them. So I made 15pages instead and each page with plenty pictures and each picture on each page duely numbered and tag-explained. Then all the documents requested I front loaded too. Hence I needed to submit about 4 webforms and each webform I tagged 1of4, 2of4,... And each webform listed the documents attached cos I didn't want anything lost in translation or transmission

Hi, thank you!! Yes, in fact after the biometrics request for my spouse in July, I received remed req for myself (PA) in August which is now passed since 3 weeks ago. I'm waiting for PPR!!!! But my review of additional documents has changed to we are reviewing the additional docs you provided since Aug 10. So not really sure what to expect. I wonder why they haven't asked for French PCCs for us because we've been living in France for a bit over a year now. And I didn't send upfront French PCCS, just waiting for them to request it lol

Preferably do the pcc upfront... Tasking the tip from the email I got from Sean Fraser's office to do these things upfront especially Medicals and PCCs. Medical of my spise was also passed the same day I got all these updates... So I thank God we did it cos it did push our application.

They would usually update the portal with your spouse's date of passing once passed. What does it currently show?

Currently, It is showing the medical passed date(feb-2022) of my(PA) medical. I had submitted spouse medical in april-2022 but I did not see any update in the medical passed date.

This will be replaced and updated to to reflect your spouse's medical pass date. Has your spouse been added to your profile?

Yes, She was added in my profile in april-2022 after 3-4 days of submitting ADR. I have also completed the biometric for her which is being shown in gckey under dependent, not sure what's the issue with medical.

Thank you.

Did you live in US even for a minute after your first PCC? Then, you need to provide a PCC for US.
