Hello Guys,

This is my wife's timeline.
  1. We received xxxxxxxxxxxxx application for permanent residence on April 18, 2019.
  2. We started processing xxxxxxxxxxxxxx application on September 3, 2019.
  3. We sent xxxxxxxxxxxxxx medical instructions on June 6, 2019. To avoid delays, please provide us with the information requested as soon as possible. Please consider delays in mail delivery before contacting us.
  4. Medical results have been received.

Recently she got an email saying that

"This refers to the Application to Sponsor a Member of the Family Class you submitted to this office on
behalf of xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx and family (if applicable).
This message is being sent to confirm that the Application for Permanent Residence for your
relative(s) has been forwarded to the visa office in New Delhi for further processing.
Case Processing Centre Mississauga"

I was wonderiing how long it will take for the processing from this point. The wait is unbearable.
Oh wow! Finally good to see files are being transferred to NDVO. That’s a good news. As per what I have seen it takes 3 to 5 months in NDVO. But if the file wasn’t just sitting in Sydney and there was something done, you might see decision made soon. Good luck.

Did your file move from Mississauga to NDVO or Sydney to NDVO?

PPR says that
STEP 1: UPDATE YOUR APPLICATION
If any of the following conditions apply, you must inform IRCC immediately via the IRCC Web form:
 Marriage or common-law union, divorce, annulment, legal separation;
 Death of the sponsor, the principal applicant or any accompanying family member;
 Birth or adoption of a child, including grandchildren born to dependent children;
 You, the principal applicant, or any of your family members have been charged or convicted of a criminal offence.

So I applied for family sponsorship and my sponsor is my husband
Do I still need to tell them that I’m married? Or does this apply only if your marital status changes while your application is being processed?

Hi Guys,

I have a question about the status we see on ECAS.

PA's status on ECAS:
  1. We received your application for permanent residence on April 26, 2019.
  2. We sent you medical instructions on June 18, 2019. To avoid delays, please provide us the information requested in the letter as soon as possible. Please consider delays in mail delivery before contacting us.
  3. We sent you correspondence on June 25, 2019. If you have not yet provided the information or the requested documents, please do so as soon as possible. Please wait until you receive the correspondence before sending us additional information, as the correspondence will outline all information that is required.
  4. Medical results have been received.
Is anyone facing issues with the updates on ECAS? I only have access to ECAS and not to the GCKEY as the lawyer has that access.
If I compare the GCKEY status and ECAS Status, they are way too off, for example: the additional documents have been received as per GCKEY status - August 22.

Is this the case with everyone? Or should I submit an inquiry?

I have a similar situation too.
ECAS status is already decision made, but GCKEY says my app is still being processed.
And I received a request letter via email but it’s not shown on GCKEY.

Yeah, that's strange. I haven't seen any updates on my ECAS since I got the additional doc request!!

Congratulations BTW. What's your timeline?

Hey Mamta, just a quick question. Was your file moved from Sydney to Mississauga and then NDVO or From Sydney to NDVO directly and when was it moved?

With every passing week I'm adjusting the expected PPR date in my head.

When I filed the Application, I was expecting to receive the PPR by end of August.
Next was: Mid September
Next: End of September
Now: Mid October. Hopefully this one goes through. This wait it brutal!

Thinking ahead: How long it is taking to get the PP back if submitted in the USA? Any idea?
Exactly like me. I was confident that by August I would have my PPR. And I see September is done and still nothing. Someone from VO in Dar who is from the May batch already received their PR.
