  5. This has all been covered in the main post of the thread, but I'll go over it here:
    The email you received on 5/4 was your IP1.
    The ghost update you had on 15/4 was your IP2.
    Your next ghost update will signify that a PPR is imminent.

  6. Apologies, wasn't entirely sure, so thanks for the clarification. When you say "IP2" do you mean it's in progress, or rather it's completed?
  7. An IP2 usually means that your eligibility (A11.2) and criminality have been marked passed and that your security is ongoing. Those are really the three main pillars of your application with eligibility being the trickiest, so it's only a matter of time before you have your PPR.

  13. @derkdsou Here is my timeline:

    AOR 27th Jan
    My only Ghost update was on the 11th March were I received an email. Logged in and I found that I passed Medical and that BIL have been also received.

    My BG status have been '' We are processing your Background Check '' ever since. I have been checking my online account once everyday ever since and couldn't notice any Ghost updates ever since.

    Am quite confused as where I do stand right now. I did notice that many of my fellow applicants whom have a similar Jan AOR have got at least two ghost updates by now.

    What do you think of this case?

    Primary VO: Ottawa
    Secondary VO: Edmonton
  14. This is why I tell everyone to ignore these so-called ghost updates, as they don't reflect true status of an application.
    Applicants keep comparing their situation with others, and it creates confusion.

    You have just passed medicals and received biometrics request, so your application is still at an early stage. You most probably passed R10, and your criminality is most likely underway already.

    Other than that, not much else can be said with great confidence.

    Forget about Casper. ;)
