So earlier this morning (WAT), I had submitted all the requested documents and was just waiting for IRCC to say made a final decision.... Just a few minutes ago, another request letter for an updated Schedule A for spouse... They say be specific about job title in the activity portion as "job" or "employed" will not be sufficient. Will send it at midnight and await tomorrow's update

I am curious to know your detailed timeline and ADRs that were asked. Mind putting it here when you have time? Thanks.

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)...
Hi Naynah, do you recall how long did it take for FBI PCC to process your Identity Summary Request once your mail was delivered. They said it should be 3-5 days but want to confirm if it happened earlier than that for you.

So I sent mine by mail to FBI office as per their requirement. It got to them the 3rd day. So 3days after their receipt I got the FBI certificate by email. So sure.. 3-5days is true to timeline.

Can someone please provide your inputs on below query? CEC inland

I am the primary applicant and I have my spouse as dependent in my profile. I haven’t added my daughter as a dependent as she is a Canadian and now after submitting the application under view dependents I see my daughter’s name and she has a UCI# too. Is this normal? I have provided all her documents like passport and birth certificate. I have added her name under family details section. I haven’t paid the PR fee for her. Earlier when I got the invite I only saw my husband’s name. Should I call IRCC and ask about this??
