There is no difference under the immigration law between inland and outland. The only difference is how the COPR / PR visa is issued.

Since all your family members are in Canada now, they won't need a PR visa and a COPR can be issued straight away. If you have updated their address, you do not have to do anything else. Just wait for a decision.
@legalfalcon . Hi, I have a similar question . AOR August 24th, 2020 . When I filled my application my dependent/spouse was outland. Since January 2021 she came to Canada on a study permit. However, forgot to update the address since then. All stages passed as of 29th April ( from the call center agent) . On May 9th got a ghost update even after all stages passed and called IRCC; came to know that an officer put a note like spouse overseas in the file. Since then , no GU or never got an update from IRCC. On, 9th of May updated address with IRCC via phone call and raised a webform with study permit, flight ticket and passport pages with visa pages and stamps ( of dependant). Do I need to do something else to get the attention of officer or further processing of application ? Thank you

You just have to wait now. You should have changed the address on file as soon as your spouse moved to Canada. However, there is no way to expedite the process, but have patience.

Hi @legalfalcon i have got my eCOPR today but there is expiry date is till 9 june 2021 . If i don’t receive PR card by then. There will b an issue??
The expiry on the COPR is the dat before which you had to land if you were not in Canada. COPR after it is stamped and signed never expires. It is a permanent record of you attaining the PR status.

The PR card will takes 2-6 weeks and has no bearing on your COPR. For all official purposes you can show your PR, even after the expiry date on it as a proof of your PR status in Canada.

There is nothing else that you have to do. Just wait for the PR card, which usually takes 3-6 weeks.

Hi Guys,

I am planning to go to Back home for Vacation. My PR is still in process

CEC- inland
AOR-16TH August 2020
everything passed except security.

what if I get an approval while being there?
however, I will have access to calls from Canada on my cell phone while being there.

My question is, if an immigration officers asks about the port of entry or my current location.
can I just say yes that I am currently in Canada

However, I just do not want to tell them that No coz I do not want them to transfer my file to the country I am at for vacation???

any suggestions?

Hello Guys,

Mine is AOR 25 August 2020, I am stuck on Eligibility- Recommended Pass, Criminality- Passed, Security- Not Started

Did anyone of you who was stuck on 'Eligibility- Recommended Pass' got approval? or the Eligibility got changed to 'Conclusively Passed'?

Thank you

This is common. Search the forum. You simply have to wait till an officer checks your file and reviews your Eligibility. There is no set time period for this, and due to COVID, there have been delays.

I obtained my GMCS Notes and under ASSESSMENTS I have the following:
Eligibility, Criminality, Medical: Passed
Info Sharing: Complete
Final: Approved

Security is blank which worries me. My main office is Vancouver Immigration.

Can someone tell me if the above can tell me anything conclusive about my application? Also is there a way to contact the Vancouver immigration office directly? Thanks in advance for any help
