Hello LegalFalcon,

It has been 51 days since AOR and I have not seen a single update in my profile yet. Nothing on medicals nor on background check. Is this normal?

Don't be concerned, this is normal. Some applications take a little longer. Usually sometimes even when the updates happen, you end up receiving a 'ghost mail,' but there is no change on MyCIC account. If its been 51 days already, you should order your first set of notes and see if your R10 is done and cleared.

If consider ordering GCMS notes, think about getting them from https://www.getgcms.com

In your case, based on the GCMS extract you have sent your eligibility is met, however, the officer seems to have concerns with the number of years of work experience you have claimed on your form. This could be because of various reasons. You may have gap years, or part time work experience. Or you may have changed jobs, with gaps. Sometimes, the IRCC officer wants to verify the company you have worked for or existence of the company. Usually this happens when the companies merge and a new company is formed, and the agents cannot figure how can you work at a company for 5 years when it was incorporated 3 years ago. To avoid this, your reference letter should be clear.

But I do not see any problems. If you reference letters were clear, and with the agent's note, which states that your eligibility is met, you will be fine. Usually the RPRF is asked after the eligibility is met. So as soon as it is confirmed, you will receive the letter asking your for the RPRF payment.

As regards the due date, it has no relevance. It has to be marked so the agents mark it, however, it has no significance on your file. Some files are marked 6 months in the future, but are processed much faster. I would not worry much about it.

Hope this helps!
Thanks a lot Legal Falcon. Actually is the review in Work experience To be concerened about. Also does pregnancy leave affect the work experience .

The eligibility is done based on the program requirements. The agent will match your claimed NOC with your reference letters. He will further ensure that you have worked for the number of years claimed or the minimum required for the eligibility. In case there are concerns about the company your worked for, or the kind of work you do based on your education, the salary etc, he may ask fro further evaluation. But this happens only in rare cases where there are red flags. Change of jobs, leave for education, pregnancy do not affect your job profile or experience in any way.

Hi Legalfalcon,

Based on the details below, do you think it is required to order the GCMS notes yet:

eAPR submission: 02 Jan 2017
AOR: 02 Jan 2017
Medicals Passed: 03 Jan 2017
Schedule A request: 06 Jan 2017 (On same day BG check changed from NN > NS)
Schedule A submission: 10 Jan 2017
BG Change: 11 Jan 2017 (from NS > NN)
Communication with CIC: 16 Feb 2017 (Requested for UCI number and application status)
Reply from CIC: 17 Feb 2017 (Received UCI number & details stating that Ottawa has concluded its process & file is transferred to New Delhi Visa Office)

Since Feb 17th there has been no update whatsoever. Also FYI, some NDVO 02 Jan applicants have reported BG In-progress in the last week.

What do you think: is R10 & A11.2 already completed & also please suggest if GCMS should be ordered or should I wait for some more time.

Awaiting for your revert on the same. Thanks in advance !!

Based on the information you provided, your R10 is surely complete. As regards the A11.2, that I cannot say with certainty as it differs from application to application. The only way to know for sure is GCMS notes. Without them its all speculation. Given that your AoR date is Jan 02, I would recommend that you should order GCMS just to have peace of mind and ensure that everything is on track.


Hope this answers your question.


P.S. - If you plan on ordering GCMS notes, please consider ordering through https://www.getgcms.com, the only secure site which is in compliance with Canadian privacy laws, SSL secure and accepts payments in INR.

Yes, your brother can order the notes for you. However you will have to send him a consent form, which is available here: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/pdf/kits/forms/IMM5744E.pdf

Hi legalfalcon,

In GCMS notes , what's PNP MEC?
is it something like , CIC recalculates the points for a Provincial Nomination.
for eg :

1.for OINP nomination a candidate is required to have min CRS score of 400.
2. for SINP EE , 60 pts is required for an applicant to apply for the nomination.
