Ghost Update is not an official IRCC term but implies progress which is a good sign. Your application is in the early innings of the process and around the halfway mark, 3 to 4 months post AOR, you can consider requesting your Gcms Notes (for free) for more insight.Thank you both. I had called ircc because I had a ghost update after providing my adr (rcmp pcc) but the adr status didn't seem to change from uploaded to we are reviewing. The agent who answered my call said my criminality was in progress, wasn't able to tell me why I had a ghost update, and said eligibility hadn't been started yet. That's when I asked him if I completed R10 or not and he seemed to be unsure of that. I already had MEP and permanent uci by then, so I was surprised that he couldn't say whether R10 is passed. I had assumed that that would have passed by then for sure.
