I have uploaded my info in Immitracker. We all should do it so that we all can get a near perfect analysis.

In addition, may I request everyone to share their timelines in their signatures?

Hello, may I know, in which step application is being transferred to SGVO for express entry eAPR?
I don't know actually. I have seen some people saying in the other forums that it goes to the LVOs during "Background=NA" stage to do some more scrutiny, but really don't know what happens there. Can anyone shed some more lights here?

hi friends,

When I made my passport 1 yr ago, I lived in Tejgaon, Dhaka. so my present address in passport was mentioned as Tejgaon, Dhaka.
Now I have been living in Chittagong but my brother is living in the same address of Tejgaon, Dhaka. He will do any work if it is needed to be done in favour of me. I am going to apply for SINP with present address as Tejgaon, Dhaka .
I would like to know, do I need to change my present address in passport (chittagong instead of dhaka) before apply to facilitate the processing such as for PCC or anything related?
Can anyone help me in this regards?Thanks

@mok_kab did your additional document status change? it was transferred to SGVO during that change (for my case any way)

It changed to "we do not need additional docs" on 10th Aug. Then I emailed to Ottawa to know about my visa office, and on 14th Aug they replied that it is in SGVO.

Copied from another person in other group.
File application and supporting documents.
4. AoR - Automatically acknowledged, usually on the same day as submission.
5. The first step is to check for completeness. This usually triggers the application review "IN PROGRESS." This is done at the Centralized Intake Office (CIO).
6. Next stage is the R10 review. This is the first stringent check of the application against the EE profile you created. The Regulation 10 of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations imposes a strict liability on the applicants to account for all documents uploaded, satisfy what was stated in the EE profile, and ensure that there are no gaps. If you do not provide the documents or they are filed incorrectly, your application can be rejected due to the strict liability on the applicant under this regulation. However, a lot depends on the agent reviewing the file. Under the R 10 review your IELTS, ECA are checked against the websites to ascertain that there is no misrepresentation. (R10 review is done within the 1-3 months of filing the application). If an applicants age has changed from EE profile to ITA, then the same is recorded and his score is affected. This is also done at the CIO level. Most of the applications are rejected here.
Age change between ITA-AOR - "When a change in age results in the candidate no longer meeting the MEC or having their recalculated CRS points score fall below the lowest points score in that round of invitations, officers should consider applying the public policy to exempt applicants for permanent residence from certain age-based requirements between invitation to apply and application, based on section A25.2. This consideration can result in an exemption from the refusal of an application under section A11.2.
This public policy also grants an exemption to applicants who may be refused for failing to meet FSWC program requirements when their birthday occurs between the ITA and e-APR."
http://www.cic.gc.ca/…/department/…/exempt-applicants-pr.asp
7. At the R10 review if you have any documents missing, the application is rejected, or more time is given to file the document if there is a Letter of Explanation (LoE). It largely depends on the agent reviewing it. Some are brutal and will reject the application even for a minor error.
8. Usually by this stage the medicals are also passed. This process is handled by the panelists at Health Canada. Recently some applicants received request to re-access their medicals when the file reached the Local Visa Office (LVO). I have a theory for this, but in most cases, once the medicals are passed, they are good until the final review stage. The applicants who received a re-assesment for the medicals could be because of two reasons:
a. The doctor or the facility which examined them had a complaint against it, or the CIC found something fishy about how things were being conducted there; or
b. The medicals did not disclose the required parameters, or the applicant had an underlying medical issue, which the CIC wanted to get re-assessed.
8. Now the next stage is to determine eligibility, i.e. whether the application meets the program prerequisites under which it is filed. For FSW, your experience, letters of reference, education, etc are in order. For the PNP, FSW and your nomination is present, for CEC, your Canadian experience is on file. And, so on so forth for the other categories. The objective here is to review whether you meet the program threshold and what you claim is correct. If there is any suspicion, or things don't sound good, the agent can send you application for further review. Which includes an interview, extra doc request etc. If the applicant meets the requirements, and his score is over the cut off for the ITA she received, his eligibility is passed. If there are issues, they will be addressed. This usually happens at the LVO. This stage happens when the application is usually 4-5 months into the process. At this stage, if the eligibility is met, the chances of refusal considerably go down, unless there is a criminal history. However, if your score goes down due to CIC not acknowledging your experience, NOC and reference letters not matching, or a change in age, the application is rejected.
9. As soon as the eligibility is met, next comes the security and criminality (or background check). Usually the criminality is met through the Police Clearance Certificates (PCC) uploaded with the application. If the applicant has been to a country which is suspicious, or your travel history does show frequent visits to a country without any explanation, the same are recorded and evaluated. If things look good, your criminality is passed. A lot of applicants receive a request for Schedule A at this stage to ensure no gap present
and the history is clear.
10. The last and the final stage is the security. This is a serious & time-consuming stage, involving many agencies, including Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS), International Police (INTERPOL), Criminal Database Checking & touch-base with Local Police. Many things are considered here. Number of countries visited, Applicant coming from 'certain' countries, past law enforcement or military record, Prolonged stay in a country w/out sufficient docs to prove cause, frequent traveling to certain nations, your *Name (?), Inter-Religion/Nationality Marriages etc. If everything is simple & straight, the file soon gets into the 'final review' stage. If there are any 'red flags', the case goes into a 'spin'. Then the file might go to the local Police/intelligence agencies; the outcome/timeframe of which is beyond the control of CIC. And thereby the timeframe can be anything [sometimes beyond 1yr]. But, usually this stage should be over within 1-2 months. However, a point to be noted is that the applicant can also be called for an Interview [at this stage], due to this reason. For some people the security has a quick turn around. But in the last two weeks a lot of applicants are stuck at this stage.
11. At the final review, when the security results come in and are clear, the PPR is issued..

I have some observations about the time frame on IMMITRACKER. Many Bangladeshi and other applicants who register on immitracker write SGVO as their visa office even though many of these files are processed in Canada. All files are not transferred to SGVO from Canada.

Therefore, the rosy '85-90 days' time frame seen on immitracker is actually misleading because many of these files are actually never sent to SGVO. In fact, if processed in Canada the PPR is issued quite quickly.

Immitracker calculates the time frame based on average, which gives a rather shorter time frame for SGVO. It appears that SGVO has not issued many PPR lately. Things are not progressing smoothly at SGVO.

Something is wrong with FSW and other PR files piled up at SGVO. Officers are either on vacation or sleeping.

Good observation. SGVO process PR applications of 4 countries. Bangladesh, Brunei, Singapore and Malaysia. It appears the number of PPR for these countries are very low lately. Most Bangladeshi applicants who are getting PPR are getting it straight from Canada as it appears from their time frame.

Thank you so much for the info. Just another small query, can I rent a house in Canada sitting from Bangladesh via online? Or do I need to have the landing papers, SIN to rent an accommodation in Toronto? Please advise.
