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.
Looking at your timeline, I wanted to ask why they asked your biometrics second time?

They re


For me ircc requests:
1. proof of funds
2. Four PCCs(Nigeria pcc for spouse and I and US PCCs for spouse and I)
3. Schedule A form for me (PA)
4. Additional Family Info (for spouse)

Then Biometrics for spouse (finally). But now I have hit a snag with that because I submitted passports in March for I and spouse and now vfs Lagos says I should contact IRCC to say I submitted spouse's passport and they should give further directives for them in the circumstances.
Were your initial proof of funds less for two people?

I am CEC-inland applicant and they never had requested BIL for me. They had approved my application in June 2020 without biometric but at that time I was out of Canada and could not travel back because of COVID restriction.
Now, suddenly they requested my biometric.

Okay. Biometrics are usually good for 10 years. Maybe your biometrics from previous visa got expired..!!! If not, its quite strange.

It's not strange, my husband has done biometrics 3 times in support of different applications lol
Similar case for me. My spouse already gave biometrics for visitor visa in October 2021 which was approved. And they requested for biometrics again in April 2022. But its dead silence after that. Any idea how long security and info sharing takes. It looks like in progress from last 8 months. God knows what IRCC is upto.

More update from GCMS note received today, looks like medical is passed for both me and spouse. Criminality and Info sharing also completed. Now only Security not started for both.

EDITED: in GCKey portal, it still shows "We are reviewing your medical result" even in Notes, it already passed

How many days it takes for you to get GCMS notes after applying?

Most of the time is exactly 30 days. But occasionally they ask for 30 days extension, but in the end I got back after 55 days.
And this is for CBSA note.
For IRCC note it can take longer, they dont event ask for extension. I requested one from IRCC back in April, but still haven't got it now LOL

Yes they were anticipated for two but IRCC has increased proof of fun a little bit and to be honest proof of fund was sent in 2020....so I guess they wanted an updated one.

So guys, got back FBI pcc for spouse and I today.... Hopefully we would submit all documents tonight when I get home or tomorrow morning....

Oh @maghool71 my spouse was able to do Biometrics without his physical passport. I sent several urgent Web forms then an email to Accra office. For the first time since my emails to accra office they responded to go ahead without passport. So they sent a copy of his data page to us. We took the email and all related emails(the ones proving we submitted passports since March) and Biometrics was done in about 5-10 minutes. Now IRCC is disturbing us for all documents(accra office though)...

What happens after finalisation of application what does IRCC send? Is it just our stamped passports or is there another little process?
